Songs That Defined The 60s
1. Black Is Black - (Los Bravos)
This song was released in 1966 by the Spanish group Los Bravos. They were the first Spanish rock band to have an International single with a #1 in Canada, #2 in the UK and a #4 in the USA.
Since its release back in 1967, this song has been covered more than 1000 times up through the years. It peaked at #1 in the uk and #5 in the US. The song had four verses but many times only two are heard.
I've put in three verses in my version here. The song was in the can in two takes.
Drop D Tuning = No
Capo = No
Rhythm = root up down up, root up down up and repeat - but you'll be playing the organ riffs in the break
