Several students have already wrapped up their work on this song, but I'll post details of our ongoing work here for those who are still learning the song.
- "1 2 3 4" is in the key of D Major
- The best way to count the song is in 2/2 ("cut time").
- The Introduction is comprised of 16 measures. The Chorus is also comprised of 16 measures. Each Verse is 20 measures long.
- The chords featured in the song are these: I , IV, V, vi, and iv.
*The surprising chord (or "mystery chord", as I've been describing it to students) among this bunch is the iv chord - Gm. This is not a chord you'd typically expect to encounter in a song in D Major. But in truth, it's hardly experimental.
- The starting melody notes in the Introduction are A F#. The starting melody note for the Verse is F#. The starting melody notes for the Chorus (including the pickup notes for the line "There's only...") are D E D A F#.
It's up to you to take it from here - I'm serving the song on a platter!
