BILL HILTON – Learning piano chords in difficult keys

Sometimes as a pianist it’s easy to get ‘trapped’ in just a few keys that you feel comfortable with. That’s not necessarily a problem, but it can mean that you find yourself in trouble if you’re playing piano in a band, or accompanying a singer, and you’re asked to play in a more difficult key – working the chords out on paper is straightforward enough, but you can find that they don’t fall under your fingers on the piano keyboard as easily as chords do in more familiar keys. In this tutorial I look at a simple exercise you can do to get familiar with the different chord shapes in every major key (and ever minor key, if you use a minor chord progression).

Chord Function

Posted in Chords by Higher Density Blog on November 23, 2014

Pete Whitfield

An interpretation of the concept of chord function. (My first attempt using Final Cut Express.) I try to show that in any major key, chord I feels like ‘home’, II and IV are ‘away’, III and VI are ‘neighbours’ and V is returning. Do you agree?

How Basic Chords Work – Music Theory Lesson – Michael New

Posted in Chords, Chords, Theory by Higher Density Blog on June 5, 2014

Michael New·28 videos

Next up, check out how rhythm works: http://youtu.be/Utzyi4gfBDE
or more about chords: http://youtu.be/3tbK2jtVRM8
or how major and minor keys work: http://youtu.be/rHlWP-nc4tM

This lesson is on chords, how they work, and the basic intervals that make them up. Learning the underlying music theory behind chords will not only allow you to find any chord you want, anywhere you want, it will also give you a solid foundation to build your entire understanding of music theory on.

I have a bachelor’s in music (I took about a billion theory courses), and I’m a full time music teacher. After trying to help so many people learn music theory, I’ve decided that this is the best, most useful and most easily understood way into music theory. You don’t need to know anything about music to get started on this, other than the names of the notes (and if you don’t know that then google it; it’s cake). Have fun.
