Lesson notes

Listen To The Music is one of The Doobie Brother's biggest hits from their album "Toulouse Street" released in 1972. This song uses an inversion of the common major chord where you play the third of the chord as the root which helps create that unique Doobie Brothers sound. They use that inversion a lot in their guitar playing so keep an eye out for it! They do a common move where you shift between a barre chord in your first finger and a minor 7 chord by hammering on with your middle and ring finger that i'll break down and show you how to play. It's based around barre chords in the key of A that you'll need to be able to play solidly in the pocket as well and provides a great chance to practice your timing.
