Episode #003
"How I Got to Memphis" by Bobby Bare.

Section one works through the principle guitar riff. This part acts not only as an intro, but also as a background melody through the piece. Many variations of the part are performed, a general overview is outlined in section one.

Section two discusses the chord harmony and the harmonic movements from within the principle key of "D Major." Chord degrees of "I-IV and II" are used to establish the Verse and Chorus harmonies. 

Section three focuses on the Bridge. Here, the "V-chord" is used to push off the measures into the I-chord resolution.

Section four explores the half-step modulation that occurs within the piece. An interesting use of "Modal Interchange" is applied to transition the piece up to "Eb Major" and create a new harmony concept.
