3 Chord Club: Rockabilly Beatles

Posted on: September 27th, 2013 by dville

The Beatles learned their chops by playing the popular American music of the day.  One of their favorites was rockabilly legend Carl Perkins.  In fact, The Beatles recorded a total of six Perkins songs.  

Today week at the 3 Chord Club we’ll learn three of those rockabilly classics as covered by The Beatles.  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.

Matchbox 
(Hint: Blues)

Glad All Over 
(Hint: In walks to IV)

Sure To Fall 
(Hint: Bonus Chord II7/B7 in Bridge)

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