There’s a silver moon, came a little soon, oh, for me to bare.

Creepin’ In chords and progressions

The opening lick over chord I (G) is played using pull-offs and hammer-ons from the minor pentatonic and Mixolydian scales.

Following this, we mainly use the I, IV, and V chords for the verse and chorus.

The IV and V chords have the variation of sus2 added and taken away from it.

The turnaround uses the chromatic line of FEEb as we move through the chords of G7, C and Cm.

Could Creepin’ In be the only famous song in the world that uses an open position Cm chord? Probably.

Study the right hand during the solo and it’s obvious how many of those notes are played by hammering on and pulling off!

In order to play this fast, you may need to practice the chromatic exercises for a while. As you do, why not try them using a hammer-on and pull-off technique instead of picking every note?


To follow up the immensely successful album Come Away With Me was a pretty daunting task for anyone, especially after getting eight Grammy Awards for a debut!

Norah Jones‘s second album Feels Like Home was, just like the first one, produced by Arif Mardin (Bette Midler, Chaka Khan, Bee Gees, Phil Collins, Aretha Franklin) who took the calm jazz/folk piano-led style more towards American country roots.

The success of Feels Like Home was instant with almost 2 million copies sold worldwide in its first week of release!

Following this, Norah set out for her second Grammy Award, this time she clinched the Best Female Pop Vocal.

Creepin’ In was written by Norah Jones bass player Lee Alexander who had credits on 6 out of 13 songs on Feels Like Home.

Apart from Norah, Lee, and Dolly Parton, another legendary musician contributed to the album. On the track What Am I To You, we hear Levon Helm on the Drums (Drummer and Vocalist of The Band).
