Lesson notes

Three Dog Night was one of the most successful bands around the turn of the 1970s. It basically consisted of three great vocalists, Cory Wells, Chuck Negron and Danny Hutton.

Most of their hits were written by great songwriters of the day, like Paul Williams and Roger Nichol, who penned Out In The Country.

The song opens with a jazzy, syncopated chord progression played with double-time (sixteenth note) strumming.

The chord progression uses a lot of barre chords and some unusual inversions.
