Can you see yourself at the piano...
-- Chording like a pro...
-- Being the life of the party...
-- Entertaining your family and friends...
How would you like to master -- really master -- the art of playing the piano using a "chording" style?
When I was a kid, my Mom played the piano by reading the notes in a piece of music -- like most everyone does. It was fine, but not near as exciting as what my Dad did. He didn't read music like my Mom, but he played those wonderful, fun "chording things" that everybody loves. We sang along as he played, and it was great fun.
During those years I took piano lesson from a little old lady teacher named Mrs. Graham. Looking back, I feel sorry for her, because I was interested in everything EXCEPT piano playing. I even took my baseball glove with me to a lesson one day...
And I basically got nowhere. Oh -- I could play a few pieces: I remember "Swans On The Lake", and "Indian War Dance", and "Santa Lucia". Hardly the stuff that excites a young boy.
I wish you could have seen me play
the piano when I was just learning. I was the nearest thing to
that you could imagine. I was into baseball, not music – and my heroes
were Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Ted Williams. (And by the way, I
still have a picture of those 3 guys on my wall.)
My dream was to hit
baseballs like them, not to play the piano.
But an opportunity to play with a
combo presented itself to me when I was a freshman in high school.
Seems the piano player of the group had graduated the previous year,
and nobody else played piano well enough to play in the school jazz
combo. I didn’t know zilch about playing in a group, and I didn’t know
chords. But I was excited to have the opportunity to play with older
guys, and so I took the job.
The lead sax player told me I really should know chords in order to play in the group, so I searched through a music magazine until I found an ad for a chord chart. It cost two bucks, as I recall, so I sent off for it. When I received it in the mail I slipped it behind the keys on my parents old upright piano, and promptly learned to play my first chord – Dm7. I LOVED the sound of it, and was hooked for life on chords. The 2nd chord I learned was Cmaj7, then Em7, then Ebm7 – and before that first night was over I had learned to play “Frankie & Johnnie” – the tune in my right hand, and those fabulous 7th chords in my left hand!
Chords changed my life!
I loved it – LOVED IT – LOVED IT!
And it even sounded good enough to impress some of my friends the next
day. I suppose that simple chord chart that cost me two bucks has been
worth several million over the course of my lifetime. And much more
than that, has been worth quadrillions in pleasure and satisfaction
and relaxation and……
So why should YOU care? What does that
mean to you?
Because that high
school freshman with the two-dollar chord chart went on to learn
more about chords than
most anyone in the known universe,
courses are LOADED with knowledge about chords and chord progressions and
chord substitutions and chord
extensions and chord modulations and chord
…..and he teaches you step by step,
chord by chord, style by style,
technique by technique….
how to use chords to make the
sounds YOU want to make,
play the songs YOU want to play.
Even though I came in the back
door as far as piano playing was concerned, I learned fast because of
what I knew about chords, so college was a snap, and so was my
post-graduate Masters Degree at Southern Oregon University. After high
school I studied with several of the finest private teachers on the
West Coast, including a year with THE finest teacher – his name was
Dave – and his studio was on Cauhenga Blvd. in Hollywood. As I would
come for my piano lesson, I would often pass a big name recording
artist coming to their lesson – and anyone who was anyone in Hollywood
in those days took lessons from Dave.
Dave taught me 2 fundamental
principles about piano playing:
The piano is NOT played
with the hands – it is played with the
brain. The hands are just
If you master
chord relationships, you can
I’ve got little fat hands with short fingers. Hardly the ideal hands for piano playing.
But you know what? Because of those two principles Dave taught me, I can play “above” my fat hands.
Once a person
“gets into the flow” of understanding chord relationships
and then letting the brain knowledge flow into the hands, that person
plays “above” his ability.
