Lesson notes

Love Song is the first single by Sara Bareilles. It was recorded in 2007 and was on the charts throughout much of 2008. In this lesson, we’ll talk about the 9 different triads used in the song. One of them is played as “7” chords, one has an added “2”, and many are played with bass notes other than the root – so we’ll cover slash chords. As usual, we’ll first go through each part of the song with chords in root position – for this song, we will then follow that up by showing the specific inversions that Sara uses in the recording. In the song specific techniques section, I’ll spend quite a bit of time on the rhythms of this song.
