Love In Vain > Endings

In this last lesson we will focus on different ways to make the ending more interesting. We will talk about slight alterations that you can do, such as adding a D major 7 before the final G chord in the end or simply ending on G dominant 7 for a more bluesy sound. As always, pay attention to your tempo. Experiment with the different ending ides and see which one you like best.

Thanks and enjoy.

Hey Corey. Here's my take on this. I grew up with the Rolling Stones version of this when I was a kid in the 60s and started listening to Robert Johnson because of the song. Their version used a pretty cool, but non traditional version of the turnaround. Anyway, this is a song I've loved for almost 50 years. Thanks for the lesson and insights. Bruce
