¡Qué extraordinario! (How extraordinary!)
That was a top 40 of modern hits with just 4 chords.
My music collection doesn’t have anything from this millennium, so I was tempted to channel my father and rag on today’s music for having just 4 chords.
That wouldn’t be fair.
After all a lot of my favorite music doesn’t even have 4 chords. Hundreds of songs that I love have just 3 chords in a 12-bar pattern. For example;
Chuck Berry: Johnny B. Goode, Bye Bye Johnny (& many others)
Herbie Hancock: Watermelon Man
Beatles: You Can’t Do That
Elvis Presley: Hound Dog, Teddy Bear
Bob Dylan: Buckets of Rain: Rainy Day Women
The Doors: Riders on the Storm
Creative musicians can take a little and say a lot musically. They take 3 chords and write the soundtracks to our lives.
You can do the same with your Spanish. You can start with a little; in fact just a 3-step pattern is all you need to begin creating the score for your Spanish life.
And you don’t even have to be a creative person. All you need is a desire to get to know your amigos in their language and you’ll start expressing yourself in Spanish in record time.
