Learning To Play The Piano With Chords

Learning piano chords can help you in all your piano playing. For me chords are the easiest way to play and the simplest way to embellish my playing.

If you have no illusions of grandeur and you just want to play your favorite tunes on the piano chords can get you there fast!

It would help if you also knew a little music theory like how your scales are made but once you get that down you can really go places with chords.

Chords, chords, chords.. I love them! And now when I'm playing some difficult piano piece I can actually look at my hands and see the chords I'm playing even though they are not notated that way on my music. Mostly now I think in terms of chords rather than individual notes.

I could reinvent the wheel here and give you the theory on creating scales and chords but there are plenty of free piano lesson sites on the internet that do a very good job of that. You might have a challenge in choosing the right one but if you would like to know specifically about chords I suggest you put that into your search also.

There is a whole world of chords out there and I encourage you to look into them. It can really excel and excite your playing.

Incidentally chording can also lead you to play by ear....stay tuned.
