Need Your Love So Bad Chords: Learn the progressions!


Played in 6/8, we have in Need Your Love So Bad a 16-bar blues consisting of two movements.

The first is the intro, verses, and outro. It starts off with I – IV, just like any blues.

Following this, things get interesting, a #IVdim7 takes us back to I. We then get a turnaround in I – VI – II – V. The last four bars are the standard blues ending I – IV – I – V.

| A | A | A7 | A7 |
| D | D | D#dim7 | D#dim7 |
| A | F#m | Bm7 | E7 |
| A | D7 | A | E7 |

The second movement is also 16 bars but starts on chord IV, then adds the #IVdim7 again. This is followed by four bars on chord I, and four bars on chord IIx, very unusual.

The final four bars are similar to what The Thrill Is Gone does, V – bVI – V.

| D | D | D#dim7 | D#dim7 |
| A | A7 | A | A7 |
| B | B7 | B | B7 |

In the playlist at the top of the page, you find the original version by Little Willie John, that famous Peter Green version, a duet with Adele and Paul Weller, as well as a Gary Moore version.



Peter Green is one of the most revered U.K. blues guitarists!

What set Peter Green apart from other guitarists of his day was his unbelievable sense of timing, touch, tone, and phrasing.

He was so revered that B.B. King even said of him: “He has the sweetest tone I’ve ever heard. He was the only one who gave me the cold sweats.”

Peter Green was recognized as the top blues player and because of such was asked to join John Mayall’s band when Clapton left.

It was an extremely hard gig for young Green as, throughout their first batch of shows, fans would shout: “We want God! We want God!” (God, in this case, being a reference to Clapton).

Following this, Peter Green founded Fleetwood Mac, where he wrote and released hits such as Black Magic Woman, Albatross, and a cover of Little Willie John’s Need Your Love So Bad. This is the song we’re looking at above.
