Lesson notes

A Bad Dream was written by members of the band Keane. It was released in 2007 on the album “Under the Iron Sea” and got as high as number 23 on the UK singles chart In this lesson, we’ll talk about the 7 different triads used in the song. Three of the chords in the song are played with a bass notes other than the root – so we’ll cover slash chords. Additionally, 2 chords are played with a 4th note – so we will touch on 7th chords As usual, we’ll first go through each part of the song with chords in root position – we will then follow that up by moving from chord to chord taking advantage of nearest inversions
