I love the group, Chicago! They have a fantastic sound and it's great to play along with their music and sing away. Do you have a favorite song from the band? Here's a great one!

You're The Inspiration

Words and music by Peter Cetera and David Foster. Written in 1984, the song has a slow rock feel with a 4/4 time signature. I have the chord chart in the Key of G but then it modulates to Bb, then D. Back to Bb, key of D, then finishes in E.

Another great song with chords, Color My World by Chicago!

I think one of the reasons this group performs powerful music is their ability to change keys!
