What’s up my piano friends! Today we’re going to go over 4 simple chords you can use even as a beginner to play hundreds of popular songs on piano. Now, this is the simple, easy piano version. You could learn this in anywhere from one day to a week. Literally most beginner’s I’ve taught have learned this thing in about 3 days!
We’re going to simplify it by using some Music Theory Hacks – Don’t worry, you won’t have to understand exactly how they work. Just like you don’t need to understand electricity to use a light switch, you can just use these chords without understanding any of the advanced theory behind them.
So first off, I’m going to show you the exact NOTES of the chords. Next (THIS IS IMPORTANT) we’re going to go over the SYSTEM to learning them. A lot of beginner piano players don’t drill in the chords properly, and they end up frustrated and annoyed when it comes out sloppy, or when they can’t get hands together. But we’re going to eliminate that frustration by drilling it in step-by-step and using some techniques and strategies meant to solidify it into your muscle memory (like “The Four Rhythms!”)
And lastly, we’re going to talk about how to use “Money Patterns” and “Money Variations” to take this pattern to the next level – basically, these are simple variations in rhythm and timing we can easily learn withOUT changing the notes themselves. And it can give you a great way to spice up this chord progression when you use it in actual songs.
Oh, and sidenote: learning this can also help you start to develop some basic improv skills… so it’s like a 2 for 1!
