2-, 3- and 4-Chord Song Patterns


During the first few months of 2013, we reviewed some patterns commonly found in 2-, 3- and 4-chord songs. Instead of reading off song sheets with the chords written above the lyrics, we learned basic patterns and listened to anticipate the chord change. This also made it possible to play the songs in different keys without relying on anything but a lyrics sheet.

Here are the posts reviewing these simple songs and patterns:
