This video continues on from the last piano lesson: Boogie Woogie 101 where we focused on some 2 handed patterns. In this video “Old Time Rock and Roll” I show you how to use those patterns in a song. There really isnt too much more to it!
The chords follow the 12 bar blues progression in C. This means the chords are C, F and G. Each time you start another 12 bar blues section you need to play the hook in the beginning.
The notes for the hook in the beginning are: C C C C C Bb A G.
Oh and Halloween is coming up, see if you can find the pirate hat!
On a side note: They used this song in a cat food commercial but changed the lyrics to, “Just take the Friskies off the shelf, your cat can eat them all by himself.”
When they were recording this song, one of the recording engineers made a mistake, which caused the false start at the beginning of the song. After listening back to the mistake, they decided to keep the changes.
