Finally chords



You can learn how to play Finally by CeCe Peniston!

Teenage beauty pageant and backup singer CeCe Peniston wrote a poem in a chemistry class which turned into her first song, the title of her debut album and breakthrough single.

As a worldwide hit in 1991, the song was all of a sudden everywhere and so was CeCe. This became overwhelming for the young singer who never managed to follow up the smash debut.

Based on a four-bar, piano-led chord progression, this is a great song for bands who play weekends for people who want to dance. Let’s have a look at how the chords sync with the lyrics.

Finally chord progression

In the key of Bm we move from chord VI – V – IV, before a II – V takes us back again to VI, like this:

||: Bm | A | G | Em A :||

The best thing about songs with just one simple loop is that you can learn it quickly and then move on to focus on dynamics, breakdown sections, and playing well together.

As a guitarist, the challenge lies in playing something that works with all the keyboard parts.
