3 Chord Club: Lead Belly

Posted on: November 22nd, 2014 by dville
Today at the 3 Chord Club we’ll learn three numbers from the “The King of the 12-String Guitar” Huddie William Ledbetter, better known as Lead Belly.
 
At the 3 Chord Club we choose three songs from a specific artist, label or genre of music that we’ll learn by ear. All the songs will contain three chords or less (with the exception of Bonus Chord songs)! Since you know the song has only one to three chords, try to figure out the changes, or chord progression by ear while watching the YouTube video. Here’s a hint, most of the time the chords will be the I-IV & V or V7 chords. In the Key of C, that’s C-F-G or G7.
Remember, the sound examples may be in various keys. As an added bonus, try to figure out the key of the recording.
 The Midnight Special
(Hint: Verse I-IV-I-V-I)
 Rock Island Line
(Hint: I-V7-I-IV-I-V7-I)

 Cotton Fields
(Hint: Verse I-IV-I-V7-I)

Songs presented are for educational purposes only and used under the fair use doctrine of United States copyright law.
