More Tips For Playing Piano Chords With Both Hands

playing-piano-with-both-handsHere’s the cool part. Over the course of the next few weeks I’m going to be releasing free samples right from the new course.

In the meantime, invest some time into the playing piano chords with both hands video above and the tips below.

1. Notice how I always start with a 1 handed chord and start removing notes from the left hand.

2. Also, pay close attention how I tend to use 4 and 5 note voicings when I play 2 handed chords.

3. These chord voicings can be used in lots of different styles of music. I’ve used them on funk gigs, R&B gigs, gospel gigs, and even rock gigs. You can too.

4. One of the things that makes the last chord ‘sparkle’ is that I add 1 extension of the chord in the middle of the voicing.

Can you hear how adding this ‘color note’ it makes this 1 chord sound so soulful?

5. Yes, we’ve talked about 3 easy way for playing piano chords in both hands in the video. Everything was built from starting with a 1 handed chord though. This is critical. You must know your 1 handed chords. 

Now, if you haven’t mastered all your chords in 1 hand yet don’t worry!  

I’ll show you how to master them in every key inside the new program. Stay tuned…
