Sheet Music/TAB MIDI Sound Byte
Our second installment of drone chord progressions! If you don’t know what I am talking about, check out my first post on this topic. The original version of Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews Band was played on two guitars but has been adapted to one guitar for our purposes. Notice you never have to change fingerings on the 3rd or 4th strings (pinky on the 4th fret and index on the 2nd fret respectively), and the 1st and 2nd strings remain open the throughout the entire chord progression – only the bass note changes!
You can find the sheet music/tab as well as a MIDI sound byte on my free sheet music page or click the links at the top of this post.
Sheet Music/TAB MIDI Sound Bytes
Greetings! This is the first of three posts about a topic I like to call “Drone Chord Progressions” (if someone knows the correct or a better term for it let me know). “Drone Chord Progressions” are chord progressions where one or more strings are fretted at the same fret throughout the entire progression. They are great (especially for beginners) because they are easy but still sound good and can be found in countless popular songs.
The first drone chord song I will show you is one of the most popular beginner guitar songs of all time as well as an anthem of the 90’s generation, however, it can still be heard played today by high-school boys all over the English speaking world who are desperately trying to earn their first kiss. “Wonderwall” by Oasis is a drone chord progression because it can be played without moving your ring-finger and pinky from the 3rd fret of the b-string and high e-string respectively for the entire song.
I have added Wonderwall to the free sheet music/tab section of the website as well as some MIDI sound bytes for each of the four sections of this song to help you hear the strumming pattern.
