Tiny Dancer was composed by Elton John with lyrics by Bernie Taupin. It was released in 1972 on the album Madman Across The Water. A ton of chords in this song, we’ll talk about all 12 triads used in the song. A number of these chords are played with an added 6 or 7 - and three are played with bass notes other than the root – so we’ll cover slash chords and how they are used to make the bassline smoother. As usual, we’ll first go through each part of the song with chords in root position – then follow that up by using the technique of finding the nearest inversion. Among other things in the song-specific section, we’ll take apart the instrumental part that is used as an intro, an interlude, and an outro.
