" Secrets of Exciting Piano Chords & Piano Chord Progressions!"

- Week 99 -

Walk-ups & Walk-downs

     When you are playing a chord in a song, and you see that the next chord to be played is an interval of a 4th above the chord you are playing, you can "walk up" the scale of that chord to arrive at the root of the new chord.

     Conversely, when you are playing a chord in a song and you see that the next chord to be played is an interval of a 4th below the chord you are playing, you can "walk down" the scale of that chord to arrive at the root of the new chord.

     Sound confusing, doesn't it. But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so behold:

 

 

      Walk-ups and walk-downs can be used in many settings, in many rhythms.

     Try 'em -- you'll like 'em!
