Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on January 13, 2019

Paul Hindemith (16 November 1895 – 28 December 1963) was a prolific German composer, violist, violinist, teacher and conductor. Notable compositions include his song cycle Das Marienleben (1923), Der Schwanendreher for viola and orchestra (1935), and opera Mathis der Maler (1938). Hindemith’s most popular work, both on record and in the concert hall, is likely the Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber, written in 1943.

Bill Hilton – All the basic piano chords in one epic tutorial

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on December 30, 2018

Bill Hilton

Published on Dec 21, 2015

Check out my book: http://www.billspianopages.com/how-to…

Several people have asked me to make a tutorial revisiting all the basic piano chords – so here it is! There’s a little bit of theory, covering how piano chords are constructed, and how you can voice and invert them on the keyboard.

Most chords are built of thirds, and once you’ve figured out how to make major and minor thirds, and understood a couple of other basic intervals, it’s pretty easy to work out all the chords you need, even if you’re a relative beginner on the instrument.

As always, the secret to really mastering this stuff is to spend time sitting at the piano practising the techniques I talk about. One thing you could do is dig out a song book that has a vocal line with the chords written in. Practise reading the chords, and soon you won’t need the written piano part 🙂

Here are those timestamp links, by the way (hat tip, Ollie!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Basic major and minor

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Dominant seventh (chords ending -7, e.g. G7, Eb7)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Minor seventh (chords ending -m7)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Major seventh (-maj7)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Sixth (-6 or -m6)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Major ninth (-maj9)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Added ninth (-add9)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Suspended fourth (-sus or -sus4)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… – Diminished and diminished seventh (-dim or -°; -dim7 or -°7)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1i-cF… -Augmented (-aug or -+)
