Tommy Roe - Dizzy

This must be the Guinness world record holder for most key changes in a #1 hit. Strum along with the chord progression here.

Thanks for the reminder of how much I loved AM radio when I was a little kid.

Glad you enjoyed it, B'n'H, and thanks for the comment. I'm going to do a vinyl rip of this when the record arrives in the mail. This should help the sounds of the instruments congeal more and maybe take the edge off of the great Jimmy Haskell's somewhat strident string arrangement.

But its a very simple chord progression. Any beginning guitar player would be able to play that during day one.

When I first started playing one of my favorite song books was called "Simple Beatles."
All the chords were simple major and minor chords without any bar chords in the mix.
A look at Beatle charts shows just how complex their songs were.
