Beethoven's "Fur Elise" -- Using Minor Chords

Playing "Auld Lang Syne" on the Piano


 Playing "Joy To The World" using just 3 chords


     "Joy To The World" by Handel uses just the 8 notes of the diatonic scale descending, and can be played with just the 3 primary chords. It was written in the key of D, but to make it easier to understand, I demonstrate it in the key of C using some simple rhythm.

  Playing "Silent Night" using chord substitutions


      "Silent Night", like many songs, can be harmonized using just 3 chords. But there's no limit to the number of chords that could be used -- it is only limited to your imagination.
