We recently put out a couple lessons from the psychedelic days of the mid-1960s, each giving a taste of different parts of the US. We had The Lovin’ Spoonful’s Daydream representing New York and Scott McKenzie’s San Francisco, highlighting the West Coast sound.
Today we have an entry from the same time in the UK, Small Faces by The Small Faces. Written by Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott, later of Humble Pie, Small Faces captures the feeling of freedom one dreams about, playing hookey from school and just hanging out in a favorite spot.
The lesson includes a ‘Listen’ segment to have the student try to hear the progression as much as possible so hold off on printing the chart until you watch the first few segments.
