In this beginners lesson, I show you how to create your own chord progressions on the piano. This is done using the knowledge that every note from a major scale has a chord built from it. Every major scale has the same sequence of chords built from it.

The sequence is as follows: Major, Minor, Minor, Major, Major, Minor, Diminished.

If we take any random combination of these chords we have a chord progression. There are literally an infinite amount of progression we could come up with.

Use this knowledge to come up with your own progressions. Play around with the rhythm, change the chord inversions and add some passing notes to make it sound more original.

For some common progressions using this same knowledge, check out this video: https://youtu.be/3HdZ3c1ojoI

What’s up my piano friends! Today we’re going to go over the 6 BEST chord progressions for piano beginners. Trust me, this is the easiest tutorial out there. If you can follow simple instructions on a cheat sheet you can learn this stuff no problem. Here are the 6 progressions (named for the emotion they give off):

6. The “Sinister”

Oh, and what’s even better, is we use a concept called Chord Stacking to make this EVEN easier! So basically once you learn the first chord progression, we simply “stack” the chords in different orders and transpositions to create the other 5 with zero extra effort on your part.

Sounds too good to be true, but trust me, you’ll see what I mean in the video 🙂

3 Easy R&B Chord Progressions

Piano Learning No Comments »

I’m finally breaking down some easy to learn R&B chord progressions. These progressions are great for music producers and anyone trying to get better at playing R&B music. Let me know if you all want more content like this. Thanks for watching!

If you’re playing or writing a song, how do you know what chords will fit together in a chord progression to sound good?

If I’m playing C-G-Am-F, can I play a D Major chord?

It turns out there are actually some really useful ways to know what chords will work together. It’s not a strict rule, but more of a starting point.

They’re called Diatonic Chords.

Now I have a confession to make. I’ve been playing the piano since I was nine-years-old. But I only learned about diatonic chords THIS YEAR!

I figured if I didn’t know what they were for so long, then chances are other people might not either.

It turns out diatonic chords is just a fancy name for something SUPER SIMPLE! But it’s really useful for understanding different keys and how to play chords and songs in those keys.

Put simply, diatonic chords are all the chords that naturally occur inside a certain key. They only use the notes found within that key (or scale).

Let’s take C Major as an example. C Major has only white keys. So every chord you play in the key of C will have only white keys. A C will be C-E-G – easy right? Then up a note will be D-F-A, making it a D minor. So D minor is a diatonic chord of C. You can then work your way up the scale, still only playing white notes.

Check out the timecodes for a breakdown of the lesson!

What are diatonic chords? – 0:48

How is this useful? – 2:15

Try it in another key – 2:36

Practice tips – 3:48

How To Build A Chord On ANY Key (The Chord Formula)

Learn Easy Chord Hacks:
►http://pianote.com/chord-hacks

Building major and minor triads is so much fun once you understand the formula to create them on your own!

I use triads all the time to make beautiful harmony when I play some of my favorite songs.

Triads also make everything you play a sound so much cooler!

Here’s a breakdown of this lesson:

– Root Position Chords – 0:31
– Major Chord – 1:50
– Minor Chord – 2:02
– A fun exercise to try – 2:59
– Moving chords around – 3:38
– Final thoughts – 4:19

Moving your triads around the keyboard and changing them to major or minor gives you so many options for what to play.

Give it a try and let me know how playing your triads helps give ou more sounds to work with.

Example of songs that use these 4 chords: https://youtu.be/5pidokakU4I

In this beginner lesson, we look at a very common chord progression which uses four chords. These 4 chords are used in hundreds of songs!

In the key of C the chords are as follows: C, G, Am, F

Practice playing around with these chords to get them under your fingers. You should use different inversions and voicings around the piano.

Once you are comfortable with the chords, you can add some timing and rhythm. Start by playing each chord and count 4 beats for each one. Then you can begin adding in different patterns such as split chords and arpeggios.

Once you can do all of this, you can either sing the melody of songs over the top or work the melody out by ear, and play it in your right hand whilst playing the chords in your left.
