Lesson notes

Your Song was written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. It was released that in 1970 both as a single and on Elton’s self-titled album. In this lesson, we’ll talk about the 7 different triads used in the song. Two of them are played with an added 7 and many are played with bass notes other than the root – so we’ll cover slash chords – these slash chords are a big part of Elton John’s style. 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. In the song specific techniques section, I’ll take you through the song front to back – detailing the Intro, Outro, and many of the signature licks in the song.
