Lesson notes

This rhythmic tune appeared on Tracy Chapman’s fourth album ‘New Beginning’ and became a huge hit in 1995. Give Me One Reason features a classic 12 bar blues progression played in the key of F# using barre chords. For guitar players who want to take their guitar playing to the next level by adding barre chords to their playing, this song will be a great start. This lesson will also get into the structure of a 12 bar blues progression, since every musician should be able to play this in any given key.
