Figuring Out The Chords To A Song

I was just working on putting some lead sheets together for one of my jam groups for songs that we do not have the lead sheets for and I got to wondering if anyone else does this.

If you do, and are trying to transcribe a song that you do not have the lead sheet for, or just want to know the chords for, here is a video that may be of interest to you. :+1: :+1: :+1:

Yep, as a lifelong guitarist who had to learn songs by ear because no printed versions existed at the time, this is exactly how I figured out many a song’s chord progression.

It not only taught me ear training but also chord harmony and construction.
