I recently was surprised to find that I had never done Somebody To Love and had to remedy that situation.

The Jefferson Airplane was one of the leaders of the San Francisco music movement in the 1960s. Grace Slick started her days in San Francisco with The Great Society but moved to the Airplane after their first album in 1966. She brought with her a couple songs that would launch them to stardom. Somebody To Love was written by her brother-in-law, Darby Slick.  The song is in the Dorian mode, using chords from the key of E major but centered around F#m.

This lesson goes over the chord progressions to three parts, the strumming, and includes great detail about the way each chorus had different endings. There is also info on playing in an easier way using a capo at the second fret.
