Hello! I would like to ask for a little help. I cannot understand what chords have been used in this particular song in the video. Could you give me a helping hand? Maybe you'll understand it by ear or - by picture.




In my dreams of childhood when the skies were fair,
I can see a wildwood with flowers everywhere.
When the twilight shadows bring back sweet regrets,
That is where you find me with the violets.

I've been making up my mind to find a place that I used to know
By the Old Ohio where the shy little violets grow
I've been waking up to find I'm dreaming dreams of long long ago,
By the Old Ohio where the shy little violets grow.
I'd like to Find the little train, little winding train, that house way up on the hill.
Find somebody who promised to be true. I know he's waiting there still
When I look into his eyes, I'll see the things I'm longing to know.
By the Old Ohio where the shy little violets grow

Do you have a tuner? You can put the tuner next to the speakers and see what she's playing. that will get you close.

It's a a good ear training exercise for basic chord functions and some really common secondary dominants, though there are some a bit more tricky ones...

Before looking at the correct answer, try figuring out it on your own. Find the key first (find the note that sounds like home).

The key of the song is...
Bb major.


The song doesn't use too many chords and the chord progression is very "by the book".

Here are the correct answers:

Bb    G7         Cm       F                   Bb
In my dreams of childhood when the skies were fair,
G7 Cm F Bb G7 Cm F
I can see a wildwood with flowers everywhere.
Bb G7 Cm F Gm
When the twilight shadows bring back sweet regrets,
Eb Ebm Bb G7 Cm F
