Watch the Bell Bottoms online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Soloing the Changes
In this tune, we're going to tackle the changes to the Derek and the Dominos classic "Bell Bottom Blues". The first two chords, C and E7, are an example of the very common Gospel change of I to III7. We see this in "Georgia", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out", and "Ain't Nobody's Business but My Own" to name a few classics.
It's important to know that change when you hear it, it's not hard as it's pretty distinctive. Only one change sounds like that! If we look back at the "Open Letter" song in this course, we see a similarly common change that is equally distinctive, Im to IVb7. Actually, ALL CHANGES ARE DISTINCTIVE!
