Piano Chords – The Key To Understanding Music!
I recall that as a teenager of about 14 I was totally amazed when I found out that CHORDS are the key to UNDERSTANDING MUSIC! I had taken piano lessons from the time I was 7 until I was 14, but I didn’t have a clue about what to do except play the notes written on a piece of sheet music.
It’s great to be able to read music as it is written in normal sheet music, but without a knowledge of piano chords, what happens when the sheet music blows off the piano? Before I learned chords, I would have been lost. Once I learned them, I realized that they were the key to understanding music.
To really understand music, a piano player really needs to know chords:
Major Chords – ALL 12 of them!
Minor Chords – ALL of them!
Diminished Chords – ALL 12 of them!
Augmented Chords – ALL 12 of them!
6th Chords – ALL 12 of them!
Minor 6th Chords – ALL 12 of them!
7th Chords – All 12 of them!
Minor 7th Chords – All 12 of them!
Major 7th Chords – All 12 of them!
9th Chords – All 12 of them!
11th Chords – All 12 of them!
13th Chords – All 12 of them!
Plus Altered Chords (such as C7-5)
Plus Suspended Chords (such as C7sus)
Plus Slash Chords (such as C7/Bb
Once you know how these chords are formed on the piano keyboard, you will be able to find and form them yourself for the rest of your life. No more wondering about “what chord is this?” or “how do I play a Gm7?” or any of that.
Learn them fast, and learn them once, and that’s it.
