Crazy Love Chords: Learn the progressions!

Crazy Love Analysis + TAB T

Van Morrison‘s gorgeous Crazy Love is built around the I – III – IV – I chord progression.

There are some passing chords and the occasional extension to consider as well. Here are the verse chords in the key of A.

||: A C#m | D A |
| A C#m | D C#m Bm A :||

That descending movement of DC#mBmA is sometimes only executed by the bass, here’s some TAB for how you could Crazy Love’s verse:

Crazy Love chords and TAB verse 1

This was a very simple example, members get one that is much more complex, if you practice both, you’ll be able to come up with your variations.

Crazy Love’s chorus chords move I – V/3 – II – V – IV – V. After repeating this, we go to the I chord at the end instead of V, like this:

| A E/G# F#m E | D E |
| A E/G# F#m E | D A (Aadd9) |

That Aadd9 in the final bar indicates you should play a lick here using those intervals.

Finally, there’s a middle 8 section as well (you may want to call this a bridge). It goes mainly from V – IV – I.

| E D | A | E D | A | E D | A F#m |
| Bm7 E | A E | 2/4 E |

After repeating three times, we go down to VI – II – V – I – V. There’s a 2/4 bar at the end which feels like a ritardando.

When you play along with the original recording, you’ll get this uneasy feeling. That’s because the original recording is slightly sharp. Use my free online guitar tuner, set it to 445 Hz and you’ll feel much better.

Crazy Love is one of the best tunes for a first dance!

What to choose for the first dance for your big day is a daunting task for every couple.

Van Morrison’s Crazy Love is one of my favourite choices which I’ve seen work many, many times.

Other popular choices include At Last, Make You Feel My Love, (Everything I Do) I Do It For You, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, and another Van Morrison classic, Have I Told You Lately.

To me, Crazy Love is the best option, mainly because the band will always be able to play it well as the chords are so simple!

Most intermediate acoustic tunes can’t be played using just basic open-position chords. We have to move up the fretboard and play CAGED barre chords as well.

We incorporate bass lines, add licks, extend chords, and play vocal melodies. Most importantly, we’ll invent second guitar parts and play these songs together.
