Lesson notes

Somewhere Only We Know was written by members of the band Keane. It was released in 2004 on the album “Hopes And Fears”. In this lesson, we’ll talk about the 8 different triads used in the song. Several of the chords in the song are played with a bass notes other than the root – so we’ll cover slash chords. Additionally, there are chords with an added 7 or 9 – and even with a sus4. 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 In the song specific techniques section, I’ll show you how to play the signature rhythmic chord changes that are the hook of the song.
