As a reminder – The outside 5th is the same for both Major & Minor
Major Middle note (Major 3rd) is 2 Whole Steps From the Root
Minor Middle note (Minor 3rd) is 1 1/2 whole steps from the Root

We need to memorize our fundamental chords we use all the time so we can find them without hesitation. It may take some practice and time but it’s worth it! Make sure to practice these on their own so you don’t trip up over finding these positions when you’re learning actual music.

Whatโ€™s up my piano friends!! Todayโ€™s video weโ€™re going go over 5 things I WISH Iโ€™d known when learning piano…

It wouldโ€™ve saved me YEARS of pain and frustration (Iโ€™m not kiddingโ€ฆ)

But luckily for you, you can learn from my mistakes and learn right the FIRST time.

Hereโ€™s what weโ€™ll cover:

00:00 Intro
00:39 How to Learn Songs WAY Faster (WithOUT Sheet Music)
02:38 Easy Way to Master Hands Together Coordination
03:56 The โ€œPlay By Earโ€ Test
08:04 Using โ€œSong Mappingโ€ To Learn 10X Faster
11:13 Solve Weak Pinkie Syndrome Instantly

Make sure you stick around to the end – the LAST part is the most important BY FAR, and also makes the first 4 way easier…

Oh, and btw if youโ€™re a complete beginner, no worries, this tutorial is specifically designed for beginners and intermediate players, and we start slow and take absolute baby steps tot make sure youโ€™ll get it frustration-free. Weโ€™ll cover the technique and theory to get you up and running and avoiding all the bad habits.
