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.
