Apart from being a big hit, the reason Moves Like Jagger was picked up by so many bands so quickly was down to how simple the chords are.

Here’s a link to the full lesson: Moves Like Jagger – Guitar lesson with TAB.



Moves Like Jagger became a cover band standard in 2011!

Released in 2011 as a collaboration between Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera, Moves Like Jagger was an international smash hit selling almost 20 million copies worldwide.

Consequentially, it found itself on every cover band’s set list and remained there for at least half a decade alongside Crazy, Crazy In Love, Get Lucky, Mercy, Rolling In The Deep, and Valerie.

Today it feels somewhat dated but should still be studied in-depth if you want to know how a modern disco/dance hit like this is put together.

Repetition is the key to success in this type of style where, instead of having a band dynamically and harmonically changing, we bring parts in and out instead, much like a DJ.

In this way, Moves Like Jagger is more of a production than a band playing together. This is very much the trend since the millennium where the person mixing and producing is bigger than the band.

What’s interesting is how musicians will start to play in a different way in order to adjust to this trend, much like autotune has made singers phrase differently.

Give it a couple of decades and we shall see how much Moves Like Jagger was a part of this trend.
