“The World’s Most Helpful Piano Chord Chart”

The Learning Is Almost Automatic!

 

Chord Chart for PianoThe Only Thing Like It In The Entire World

     There is nothing remotely like this in the entire world! It is one-of-a-kind, and only available right here. You not only SEEeach chord, but you HEAR each chord, plus I personally explain each chord and how it is formed.

     For example, on the 12 major chords you learn to quickly memorize them all by grouping them in logical groups of 3. By the time the first couple minutes are up you’ll have learned half the major chords, and in 5 more minutes you’ll know them all!

     After learning all 12 major chords, you’ll learn all 12 minor chords, and since there is only a one-note change between major and minor chords, you’ll know all the minor chords in 10 minutes or less.

     Then on to augmented and diminished chords. In another 10 minutes or so, you’ll be playing all of them as well — all 24 or them! That makes a total of 48 chords you will  have learned in about 15 minutes.

     6th and 7th and minor 6th and maj7th chords too!

     After you have all the basic 48 chords under your belt, you’ll move on to 6th chords. And again, I will talk you through each chord — you’ll hear EVERY CHORD played and explained while you’re looking at a photo of a hand playing that actual chord! He covers all 12 6th chords, all 12 minor 6th chords, all 12 7th chords, and all 12 major 7th chords — and plays and explains every single one of them.

7 Overwhelming Reasons You Should Own This Talking Chord Chart Now!

  •      You’ll hear every single chord played, so you’ll be training your ear to hear different chord types!
  •      I hold your hand and talk you through every single chord — all 96 of them. You’ll hear me play each chord, explain each chord, and even show you how to invert and arpeggiate chords. (Are there only 96 chords? No — there are many more, and maybe someday I’ll make another talking chord chart with more advanced chords. But with these 96 chords you can play literally 99% of all the songs in the world!)
  •      It’s cheap! It’s not $100. or $75. or even $50. Take a look at the price! It’s only 39 bucks! And no shipping, since it’s in an e-book format that you download.

  •      There’s nothing like it anywhere in the world!
  •      It’s short! Just 8 full-color sheets with photos of 12 chords on each sheet. 96 chords total. Nothing to read — just the chord photos and me playing the chords and talking. No boring lectures or any of that. It’s short and right to the point!
  •      You can download it right now — even if it’s 3 in the morning! No waiting.

Piano Chord ChartChords Are The Key To Excitement!

     People who play only by reading the written music are at a huge disadvantage when it comes to creating a fuller sound on the songs they play. And while it’s great to be able to read music — and I recommend it — you are “tied to the written music”. You’re limited to what someone else wrote. It’s like having one hand tied behind your back — you are severely limited by the notes printed on the sheet music.

     By breaking free of that limitation and plugging chords into the equation, you create a synthesis that is many times more powerful than just playing by reading notes alone!

    Now you are free to add fillers and runs and riffs and more colorful chords to your songs.

     So whatever you do, learn chords! And this “Talking Chord Chart” is exactly the way to learn chords in a hurry!

Here’s a miniature view of the chart — each actual chord page

How To

 Master Rhythm Problems

As fast as ice cream   melts in the sun!

Date: 9:33 AM – Tuesday morning
From: Duane

I was absolutely amazed

 when I found out how easy rhythm really was…

Dear Piano-Playing Friend:

     Would you like to play the kind of piano that makes people being to tap their toes, or snap their fingers? Let me tell you a TRUE story about how I learned rhythm:

When I was in my late teens, I was playing for a church youth group “singspiration”. I loved chords, and I used to do pretty well playing most songs. But when it came to the “spirited” songs — the ones with lots of rhythm and life, I was lost. I overheard one of our youth leaders say “Let’s get someone on the piano with some rhythm!” Ouch! That really hurt. I knew it was true, but it’s not fun to hear if from someone else, especially someone you respect.

      Right then and there I made a decision: no matter how long it took, I was going to MASTER RHYTHM. I was going to learn every possible beat combination, and how to use those beats in each song, and what to do in the right hand to compliment what the left hand was doing. My search took me to private teachers, music schools, combos, books of all sorts, libraries, and listening to THOUSANDS of records, tapes, and live performances. I copied down various rhythm patterns on 3″ by 5″ cards, and at night I would analyze them playing them over and over again on the piano. It was HARD WORK for me. It didn’t come easy, like chords had for me. Chords were a snap, but not rhythm. It was difficult to read, and hard to play. I found myself rushing, dragging, stumbling, and generally fouling up. But as time went by, I got a little better. I continued to make notes of rhythm patterns, and started a collection of books and materials on rhythm.

     By the time I got my Master’s Degree from Southern Oregon University, I was starting to get the hang of it. I was beginning to understand what rhythm was, and what made it tick. I began to categorize rhythm patterns into different groups, such as rhythm & blues, jazz, rock, dance patterns, marches, waltzes, fox trots, swing, boleros, discos, ballads, gospel, bossa-novas, beguines, rumbas, cha chas, sambas, and so on.

     But it’s one thing to know a rhythm, and another thing to EXECUTE it on the piano.

     So I developed a system that is VISUAL — it allows you to SEE a rhythm while you HEAR it played.You count it out with me on the CD’s and on the DVD’s, and then you and I play it over and over and over again, until you get it IN YOUR BONES — down deep, where it becomes a vital part of you.

     Then it will become NATURAL, and people will sense the EASE with which you play all those seemingly complex rhythms.

     If you have problems with your rhythm — whether it is counting, or dragging, or rushing, or just not knowing what to do when….this great course is for you!

4 Ways To Play a Right Hand Melody In a Song

 

Duane: Good morning. This is Duane. Today I’d like to talk about four different ways to play a right hand melody.

 

You have a lot of options when you play a right melody, and here’s at least four of them. I’m not saying there’s not more, but … in fact, I know there’s a lot more, but I’m just going to cover four basic ones.

 

The most basic, of course, is to just play a single finger melody. For example, if you’re playing “Moon River”, you can play … (music playing). Right?

 

Or, you could put one note under the melody. Usually, the best combination is a third, but not always. So in other words … (music playing). See that? Okay.

 

Another way is to play a whole chord. In fact, you could just play a triad (music playing). The triad, the three note chord, but you could also put in color tones.

 

Actually, I’m giving a third way already. In addition to the chord itself, you can put in a sixth or a ninth or a seventh or all (music playing). There’s a four note chord that I’m playing right there. Okay? So sometimes … often there are four note chords when you put in a color tone. A color tone, of course, being a seventh or sixth or a ninth or seventh and a ninth or a seventh and a sixth. It could be any combination of things like that. Okay.

 

Then the fourth way … actually, this is the fifth, we’ve covered four … is to play an octave filled in with chords. In other words, play a chord but play the melody in octave but filled in with chords (music playing).

 

Okay. Now when it comes to actually playing a song, we usually combine those. We don’t use one thing all the way through. For example, if I’m playing “All the Things You Are” … (music playing). I started out as a single finger, but then I went to full chord. So you want to mix it up to get some variety. Okay.

 

Well I think that’s all I have to say right now. We tried to cover four ways and we actually covered six ways. So you can see there’s many, many ways to play that right hand melody.

 

But there’s four of them: a single finger; two notes at a time; three notes a time, a triad; or four notes at a time; or octaves with a whole chord filled in, which would be four or five notes a time because you could put in a color tone in octave as well.

 

So that’s it for today. If you enjoy these little tips, come on to playpiano.com and sign up for a whole series of video tips and instruction on music theory and so on. So I hope to see you there. Bye-bye for now.

 ********************************************************************************************

BackdoorHi. This is Duane again and I’d like to tell you about a little book that I wrote a few years back. It’s called Piano Chords and Chord Progressions: The Secret Backdoor to Exciting Piano Playing. It’s a terrific resource about chords. If you want to know more about chords, you ought to latch on to this book. It’s just barely over ten bucks, eleven bucks I think it is.

 

It covers all the chords and chord progressions that I talk about in my videos. It’s just a great … It’s not a substitute for a videos or DVDs, but it’s a great summary. It’s so inexpensive that it’s well worth your while to get.

 

Here’s a table of contents. You just look down here and see all the things it covers. Starts out with major/minor, diminished, augmented, sixth, seventh, and on to thirteenth chords, and suspensions and alterations and then goes on to chord progressions, and so on.

 

It’s a very thorough book and it’s got a lot of illustrations. I’ll just toggle through a little bit. There’s the back cover. So it’s worth your while to get.

 

So I hope you take advantage of that. Thank you. Bye-bye for now.
