Friday Face-Offs: Firework – 6th Place

Well guys, it took a while, but I finally found the coolest person on the internet.

SPOILER: “Firework” by Katy Perry is comprised of four chords, and they’re all pretty standard chords, and you might even be familiar with them from other pop songs. (Sorry to burst your bubble, all you jazzheads who were hoping to see a bunch of diminished ninth fraction-chords.)

Anyway, after watching this video, you no longer have any excuse not to play “Firework” at your next campfire/hootenanny/John Zorn tribute band rehearsal.

I’m not gonna lie — this is how I learned how to play “Firework.” So sue me, I have a horrible ear and I can never tell how the heck all those crazy pop-kids make their wacky music!

Anyhoo, this woman is totally lovely and charming and I think she should be president of America for at least 1,000 years.

Friday Face-Offs: EACH ONE, TEACH ONE.
