Climb The Stairs From Chord To Chord

 

Do you know how to climb the stairs from chord to chord using a walkup? It’s a simple process that involves playing a bass line from the root of one chord up to the root of the next chord.

It works most easily when the chord progression moves up a perfect 4th, such as from C7 up to F, or D7 up to G, etc. But it will work in other situations too – but you may need to work them out in advance.

Harmonize Thousands Of Songs

     Did you know that piano players can learn to harmonize thousands of songs using just simple major chords? It’s true. There are only 12 possible notes for a melody, and there are also 12 major chords, so any melody note can be harmonized by one or more (usually three) major chords. For example, if the melody of a song starts on G, that G can be harmonized by the G chord, the C chord and the Eb chord. You can get much more complex than that, but those 3 chords are the easiest way to start harmonizing.

Piano Chord Patterns

Piano players should be able to take a simple piano chord and break it up into a pattern, and then take that pattern and apply it to other chords in the same song, thereby creating piano chord patterns in the left hand.
