Thinking Of You Chords: Learn the progressions!


In the key of Bb, Thinking Of You’s chords move like this: VI – III – IV – I. Gm7Dm7EbBbmaj7.

By putting the I chord at the end of bar two, we feel as if it hasn’t been resolved yet, even though it has. This gives us a loop that we can dance to all night long.

Two more chord progressions are present: The II – V – I taking us to the chorus is just Cm7F7Bbmaj7.

There’s also the intro and breakdown section that goes IV – I. EbBbmaj7.

The trick with playing this well is to get the feel right for the funky chords. All muting happens in the fretting hand. You also must make sure your band doesn’t play Thinking Of You too fast, a good tip is to write down the correct BPM, then use a metronome to count you in.


Sister Sledge was Chic’s side project

Responsible for the album We Are Family, released in 1979, are Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers (Chic).

When the boys weren’t busy with their band Chic, they put this one together for Sister Sledge.

On this genre-defining album, we find four of the greatest Disco hits ever recorded He’s The Greatest Dancer, Lost In Music, Thinking Of You, and We Are Family.

You could argue that Sister Sledge, as a side project to Chic, was even more successful than their main band!
