Gotye - Somebody that I used to know - Chord progression, Riff Lesson, for Guitar Riff Lesson

  • This song is basically one long progression of D minor to C.
  • When it changes in the chorus to Dm-C-Bb-C the Bb couuld still be thought of as a substitute for Dm (it has two of the same notes)
  • Rarely has someone made such use out of two little chords for so long!
  • There are some great covers and pastiches of this song on youtube, check them out!
