Lesson notes

One was the first big hit for Three Dog Night in 1969, setting the tone for another 20 or so great songs. Written by Harry Nillson, their arrangement was mostly piano based with a few guitar embellishments.

This lesson goes into a campfire version played in the key of Em with a capo at the first fret, as well as a piano version using voicings from the recording. That part is played in Dm at the third fret mostly grabbing the chords on three or four strings.

The piano version also incorporates a guitar vamp that is played over the changes with a very unusual rhythmic twist.

The level is based on the guitar version which is done a few different ways, ranging from very easy to intermediate. The piano version is a bit more challenging.
