Day 5 - Song structure and 'Can't Stop The Feeling' by Justin Timberlake
Welcome to LESSON 5 of my series Learn 10 songs in 10 days for KIDS!
Today, we'll learn how to play the great song 'Can't Stop The Feeling' by Justin Timberlake.
This song has just three chords and uses the same chord progression for every verse AND chorus. We also introduce a PRE-CHORUS section, which in the UK is more commonly known as a BRIDGE.
This makes it a little more tricky to play the whole song, but also make it more interesting as a song to listen to. Learning the simple song structure of Verse > Bridge > Chorus is an essential part of learning songs, music and learning to play guitar.
