  • bigluc While you did correctly dicate the string part, that is not the bassline or harmonic progression. The harmonic progression is I-V-I

  • emujarofhagas Harmonic progression isn't right, it's actually a modified version of the famed 4 chords: I-V-vi-V (with a V replacing the usual IV).

  • socsy Hey @emujarofhagas, I think you're right, made edits to reflect this

  • bigluc It's a simple I-V-I if you listen to the bass.

  • socsy There's a bass in addition to the strings, and it is pretty clearly IV I V vi IV I V. The bass's first note is a C, so definitely a IV chord, not I. Tab link

  • hatleys While the bass is usually a good indicator of what might be going on, it isn't in this case. As it stands, the gaps between chords imply that she's singing over a NC section, which isn't the case at all. I-V-vi-V is correct.

  • tranceffect I believe revisions #10 and 13 are the most accurate analyses' of this song. Personally I preferred Socsy's NC version at revision #10.
