I was unable to work much on this song with students in the first week. However, there are a few details I covered that are worth noting:
- The song is in the key of D Major
- The verse is comprised of 16 measures (same as the Train song from last month)
- Although there is some variation in the chord progression throughout the song, one could play this simplified progression the whole way and it would sound just fine:
| IV | I | V | vi |
More to come this week.
Some personal asides:
- Jay Sean is the latest prince of melisma
