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.

  •      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!

Course Description

Piano for busy adults using piano chords & chord symbols … on close-up DVD video …gets you chording really fast!

I really will teach you to play “chord piano” within the next ten days with both hands, or it won’t cost you a single cent. Piano chords will revolutionize your piano playing, and you’ll LOVE playing with them! Chords such as Dm7, Bb6, Dm9 — and many more. Will you be great after ten days? Of course not — but you’ll be on your way!

I’ve been teaching piano lessons here in the Rogue River Valley of Oregon for over 20 years, and my Keyboard Workshop is known not only locally, but all around the world. If I couldn’t do what I say I can do, I wouldn’t still be around. But I’ll leave that entirely up to you. If you don’t learn to play “chord-style” piano in ten days, just send the course back to me and I’ll give you an immediate refund — no questions asked. I mean it. It’s that good.


Dear Friend:

I really can teach you to play the piano using piano chords & chord symbols such as G7, Dm7, Bb6 and so forth. And it won’t cost you an arm and a leg, either. And you risk nothing, since my chording method is 100% guaranteed.

This is not a bogus claim. I’ve been teaching people to play the piano using chords for over 25 years, and I know what works.

At the end of 10 days you’ll know enough about chords and music to play songs on the piano with both hands – without having to read complicated sheet music — just the tune and the chord symbols such as D7, Em, Cm7 and so on. These chord symbols are the magic key to unlocking the door of exciting piano playing, because once you know them, you can apply them to THOUSANDS OF SONGS!

Piano playing becomes SO much easier when you know what chord to play in the left hand while your right hand plays the melody!

Will you be great in 10 days? Of course not. But you’ll be on your way. Some will go faster, and some will go slower — what else is new? But the point is that you will know chords and you will know how to use them in your favorite songs. 

Here is what you’ll learn in the 10 day “Chord Piano” course:

1. You’re going to be able to play all 12 major piano chords easily and quickly. Some of my students can play them in as little as 3 seconds! (Honest!) 

2. You’re going to be able to pick out a tune with your right hand both “by ear” and by reading notes. (Some people play by ear, and some by sight-reading. You’re going to be able to do both — and knowing piano chords speeds up both.)

3. You will be able to play all minor piano chords, all diminished piano chords, and all augmented piano chords, just by changing each major piano chord slightly. But that’s not all: You will also learn how to form and play 6th chords, minor 6th chords, 7th chords, minor 7th chords, maj7th chords (different than “regular” 7th chords), and even 9th chords! You will be able to do this for the rest of your life just by reading chord symbols such as F7, C6, Gm7, and so forth.

4. You will learn to create a chording rhythm pattern with your left hand, made out of the piano chords you learn, which you can use on a thousand different songs the rest of your life. If you like ragtime, you can use it on The Entertainer, and songs like that. If you like gospel music, you can use it on Amazing Grace, and a thousand other hymns or other Christian music (Actually — any kind of “popular” piano music). If’ you like Country-Western or Contemporary or Pop or whatever, you can apply this “chording bass” pattern to your favorite songs. (The only kind of piano music you shouldn’t use it on is classical). You will learn to do this “swing bass” technique in both 3/4 and 4/4 time (and all the other variations). Then you will learn a left-hand technique called “arpeggios” — where you’ll “stretch out” the chord into a beautiful and full orchestral sound — great for ballads, love songs, certain praise & worship songs, etc.

5. You will learn a wonderful “harmonizing trick” you can do using piano chords. It’s very easy to do, but adds a “duet effect’ to your right hand melodies. (If you sing, or play another instrument, you can apply this technique to that as well!)

6. You will learn how to “fill up the empty spaces” in a song with echoes, fills, and runs — all made out of piano chords. This lesson alone is worth ten times the cost of the piano lessons, as only the very top professionals know how to do this. You’ll learn rapid-fire runs, straddles, fills, melodic echoes, and cascading waterfall runs!

7. You will learn how to arrange a song — put an intro at the start of it, and an ending on the caboose. You can then take a piece of sheet music and play it your way, instead of just playing what’s written.

8. You will learn how to create a fantastic “orchestral pad” in your left hand part that creates a “river of sound” for ballads, love songs, Christian music, regular sheet music and any kind of song needing a “smooth” feel.

By the way, you will not only learn how to do all these things, but you will also understand what you’re doing! In other words, I teach music theory — why piano chords work the way they do — along with the specific skills, so you won’t be doing anything by rote — you’ll understand exactly what you’re doing and why you’re doing it! 

Whether you take 10 days or ten weeks or ten years is up to you, of course — but the piano chord course comes in 10 dynamite piano lessons that will take you from where you are to where you want to go. You’ll start by learning what music is all about — the 3 parts of music — melody, rhythm, and harmony — and then your learn to read a melody line (if you don’t already know how). Then you’ll learn how piano chords are formed, and how to get a grasp on all 12 major chords — and then learn to change them to minor, diminished, and augmented. 

Then after you know 48 piano chords (12 major chords, 12 minor chords, 12 diminished chords, and 12 augmented chords), you’ll learn to invert them (turn them upside down) so you’ll have 144 chords to work with. But then you’ll learn to add extensions to the basic chords — 6ths, 7ths, major 7ths, 9ths — for those wonderful and exciting sounds that add so much to music. That will give you….oh, about 1000 piano chord possibilities. Piano lessons were never this much fun!

But that’s when the fun just starts! Once you know piano chords, then you will learn how to create exciting rhythm patterns using those chords in a variety of ways — from “swing bass” to “western bass” to “broken chord bass” to……….and each style has many varieties, so there is really no end to the distinctive styles you can come up with to create your own sounds using piano chords! How To Play Chord Piano…a 10-Step Course!

9th Piano Chords – Two Different Types

A Review Of 9th Piano Chords

Did you realize that there are two different types of 9th piano chords?

Here is the video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egQntoQUUzw&feature=youtu.be

Good morning, this is Duane, and we’ve been reviewing basic chords. We started out with major chords and then reviewed minor chords, diminished chords, augmented chords, 6th chords, 7th chords. Today I’d like to review 9th chords. Now a 9th chord obviously involves the 9th note of the scale, so it’s one above the octave. Obviously, this is a C 9th chord but what a lot of people don’t understand is it usually includes the dominant 7th. If it doesn’t, if the composer wants that sort of thing, he calls it a Maj 7th or add 9. Sometimes you see C major 7th (add 9). There’s no universal agreement on chord symbols by the way, so different musicians call them different things. In other words, it’s not written in stone but most of the time when it says C9, it means the dominant 7th along with the 9th. Most of the time C major 9th means put in a major 7th. It doesn’t refer to the 9th, the 9th is major in any case, but it’s the 7th that’s major.

Now because it’s a 5-note chord, you have to use 2 hands to play it. You’d play some of the notes in the right hand and some of the notes in the left hand, or you could go like this. You could play the chord in second inversion and add the 7th and then the 9th like so. Then it doesn’t include the root, so you’d have to hit a low root first. I like to do this, play the C chord in open voicing arpeggio and then play that chord. See that. A 9th is the 9th note of the scale, and it includes a dominant 7th, whereas, a major 9th includes a major 7th along with the 9th, of course. Now there’s others, like there’s a flat 9th and so on, but we’ll take that up when we take altered chords. That’s it for today, just a review of 9th chords. We’ll see you tomorrow with another little chord review, and then we’ll get back to our series on actually playing songs and so on. We’ll see you then.

How To Play “Oh Danny Boy” Using Block Chords

How To Play “Oh Danny Boy” (also known as “Londonderry Air”)

Today we are going to learn how to play “Oh Danny Boy” with block chords to make the melody stand out.

Good morning. This is Duane. We’ve been doing a series of videos called “Good Stuff You Really Ought to Know About Music,” particularly related to piano playing. It’s music theory related to piano playing basically. One thing you really ought to know about music as a piano player is that if you want to make the melody stand out, there’s several ways to do it, but one way to do it is to use block chords on the melody. Now block chords is where you play the chord in the right hand and the melody in the left hand. Actually, you play the melody in both hands.

I could take any tune, but let me take “Danny Boy,” or “Londonderry Air.” Instead of playing just one note, it’s so much stronger if you play it in octaves like that. Under the right hand octave what you do is you put in the chord notes. If the chord is G 7th, you put in the notes to the G 7th chord under the melody. Then you make your left hand stand out by playing it a little louder. Or what I’m doing there is I’m sliding up to B like so. You see that? Let me do it again. And so on.

You mix in other styles with it, but what I wanted to show you is to make the melody itself stand out you can use that block chord style, which again involves playing the chord in the right hand and the melody in both hands. Then you can experiment with the chords. That’s all G 7th. Since the melody is C, I’m going to change it to F briefly and then back to G 7th or G 9th or G with a flat 9th. You can experiment with the chords. The main thing is make that left hand stronger than the left hand so you got that shimmering overtone from your right hand chord. Then as I said, mix in other things.

For example, you can’t just use block chords all the time. There’s an opportunity for a fill like a run. Any kind of fill like that will work. There I’m not using block chords as a contrast, then back to it there. You see that. Mix it up. That’s all that you need to know really about how to make block chords. You simply play the melody in both hands with the chord under the right hand melody, and make that left hand stand out. If you enjoy these little tips, come on over to playpiano.com and sign up for our series of free piano tips. I hope to see you there. Bye bye for now.

Big Fat Chords For Smaller Hands

Thursday, May 7th, 2015
VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Review our article:

How Can I Create Fat Chords With My Smaller Hands?

Good morning. This is Duane. Today I’d like to talk about creating fat chords with little hands. If you have small hands like I do, there’s a way to get a bigger sound. I wish I could play a 10th in my left hand. I wish I could play that. I’d love to be able to do that. A lot of people can because it has a beautiful, big, resonant sound, but I can’t reach that. What I have to do with my left hand is this. I have to roll it, whatever the chord is, but I do it rapidly. I pushed the damper pedal down as I play the bottom note. Then I pivot onto my index finger and go up to the 3rd – or you can call it a 10th if you like. It’s root, 5th, 3rd. Do that for a while and you get the feel for it. Root fifth 3rd 5th 3rd. That’s a good arpeggio style, too, because … You see that? It keeps that continual bass sound. If you have small hands and you can’t reach a 10th, then I suggest you roll it like that.

In the right hand, I can play an octave but that’s all, and even an octave sometimes it depends what’s in between the octave that it makes it difficult to play. I know a lot of people can’t even reach an octave comfortably. What can you do? What you can do is play the entire chord and put in a color tone of some sort such as a 6th. If I play that, see I’ve got a big sound without a wide stretch in either hand. I don’t have a wide stretch in my right hand. I don’t have a wide stretch in my left hand. I roll the left land and I play the chord notes under the melody. For example, that’s a C chord, so I put G and E under it, if the melody’s C, of course. Then I also put in a 6th usually. Sometimes I lay my thumb across the 2nd, too. I have the 2nd, the 3rd under my thumb, and then the 5th, 6th, and the root. I’ve got the whole C chord: the root, the 3rd, and the 5th, plus the 2nd and the 6th. It’s also known as a C69 chord, 6 and 9. You get a big sound that way. There’s two ways, if you have small hands, to make it bigger.

Let’s say the melody is G. I’m going to put in the notes E, which is a chord note, and then I’m going to put in a 2nd or a 9th, then a major 7th. I can even play the 7th and the 6th at the same time. I was going to say another way to do it is to run it quickly up the keyboard. See, that makes it sound a lot bigger. Notice that my left hand, after I roll that 10th, then I come up and play the chord in my left hand. That’s the C69 chord. Let me do it slowly. Roll chord, roll chord. In my right hand I’m playing. Now in [contact 03:42]. You can get a fairly big sound. It’s probably not as playing an octave filled in. I wish I could do that comfortably; I can’t. You use the ability that the Lord has given you and go with that. Use the chords you were dealt with. That’s a couple ways to make a big sound with smaller hands.
