1. Presentation: Welcome to my course. My name is Alexandra. I'm a PhD assistant professor at the music faculty, And I also played keyboards in compassion, setback like river like, really shocked. They're running like a river. On this course. I will teach you piano chords in the lessons, and by the end of this course, you will be able to read cords and play simple. A compliment off the songs you love on this course is for beginners, so you don't need to know anything else about music. Before starting this course, I propose an original manner off learning chords through patterns that repeat all over the piano keyboard. So it will be very easy for you to learn them just for my step by step guidance and the lessons you will become a pianist. 2. Notes on the keyboard: hi guys in order to learn easy a compliment on the piano. For your favorite songs, you have to learn courts. This is what I will teach you through this town. Lessons I propose. But first of all, what is a court? You have to imagine that cords are like the foundation off music that they are vertical structures composed of a minimum off three sounds that that played together simultaneously . Multiple courts or courts progression represent the basic foundation off music. The melody is built upon these structures called courts. In Music. You will find different types of courts that put together one after the other, make the beautiful foundation off music that you can hear in old great songs that you love . So I will teach you the types of courts and, most importantly, how to play them on the piano. And then you will be able to play simple and easy accompaniment on the piano for your favorite songs. So what do we learn? Interesting lessons will be this types off court and, of course, how to play them on the piano. What I will show you in distant lessons is certain patterns for every type of court that you can apply all over the piano keyboard. You have to remember just patterns that you can put on any key off the keyboard, and you get these types off courts, and then you can easily read them from a score. But first of all, you have to learn the keys off a piano keyboard. Okay, guys, so let's get to work. So maybe when you see a keyboard, a piano keyboard, it seems overwhelming. It seems like you have too many keys and you don't know where to start. But if you learn a better learn, then you will be able to play the piano very easy. The pattern means that we have a bunch of keys off notes that repeat. So just look at the piano keyboard. It doesn't matter if you have a piano on your phone or iPad or you have a keyboard or a real piano. It doesn't matter. The pattern is the same. So as you see, you always have two black keys and then three black keys and then two and then three, and so on. So this is the pattern that repeats to 3 to 3 every time This patterns tells us where we are on the keyboard. So it's like a map. You know exactly where you are. If you look at these black keys, another pattern I wanted to learn. And this is the most important. And this will help you learn. Court is the pattern that refers to the letters of the alphabet because the notes have the names off the letters of the alphabet. So this is a the first letter off the alphabet and the first note I want you to learn. So this is a take a very close look and remember where a it's placed. It is placed after this to black keys from the three group. So after these two Blacky is, you have a new this'll is a next to a on the wide keys. It's big, like in the alphabet. So okay, be then C D Yes, G. So we have the alphabet from a to G on the White Keys, starting from the key, that is, after these two black notes on the group off three. If you remember this, it will be very easy for you to play the piano. So you have B c d. Okay, g and then you could take a look. Here we have another A. So this pattern repeats everywhere, everywhere on the keyboard. So it's here. As you can see, we have another A, and the alphabet starts again. A B C de be Yes, G. And then we started after, but again with a So this is the alphabet on the White Keys starting from a A is here after two black notes on the Group of Three. Okay, but we also have the black keys that I want you to learn. They're not different from the white ones. They're all equal. The only difference is that the white ones have simple names like the others of the alphabet, and the black ones have a bit off a longer name. You have to add something to the letters of the alphabet so that you can call these black notes. But in playing the piano, they are equal. They are all notes, so when you count keys, you can't them as equals. So now let's see. Starting from this age, we have a black North Becket's on the black note that it's down from it. We call up going that direction. The right direction because, as you can hear, sounds go up. And when I go like this in my left direction, the music goes down. So here is up and here is that so from this A. I have a black note and down from this a have another black note. So I will name this two black notes depending or the white note that it's next to them. So when we are going up, we have the term sharp. And when we're going down, we have the term flat. So remember this. That means that thesis A and this is a sharp the same letter of the alphabet. But it's this one going up. So we have a sharp If this is a day, then it means that this isn't a flat. I said that the term flat refers to something going down, and the term sharp refers to something going up. OK, so this is a This is a sharp and this is a friend. Let's take another example. Let's take this key A B C D. This is the so this key will have the name D shop because it's a D were a little bit upper and this one will be a D flat, so d the sharp and D deflect. But if you look at this key this Blackie, you have the question. Why is this D flat? And it's not C sharp. Well is the same thing. You can call this black key. From here you can call it C sharp. That means the sea, but a little bit upper or a D flat. It's the same thing. This applies to every black key. You can call them in two ways, so let's see. We have a a sharp or a B flat being C C sharp or deflect dee dee sharp or E flat E f and sharp or G flat, G G sharp or a flat. And that's it. This pattern repeats everywhere. When you finish the notes from a G sharp or a flat, it starts all over again. A. A sharp or the flat, the sea and everything all over again. Just remember the white. He's are the letters of the alphabet and the Black keys, our letters off the alphabet with sharp or flat, depending on the direction you look. This are the notes from the keyboard on a piano or, I don't know one app from your iPad or your phone. This is the parent repeats. And this is what you have to remember if you want to play the piano pretty simple. 3. Major chords: first, we will talk about the major court. The major court has a pattern that I drew here for you. And now let me explain to you what this means. So the major court, you will find it on scores A written like this as a simple key or simple name off a key, just a letter like, for example, C or G or others that we've learned in our previous lesson. So what does this mean? It means that when you see this see, it means that you have to create a certain pattern starting from this seat a major pattern . Or if you see this, it means that you have to create the major pattern starting from this G. So the letter that you see is the first key that you have to start your court over the court. The major court has this better. So what you have to remember for our lessons is that smiley faces or faces are keys that we play. And this symbols are forbidden keys. That means that you don't play them, you just count them. So this major court has one smiley face. That means a key that we play. Then It has three forbidden keys that we don't play on the keyboard, then another kid that we play, and then another two that we don't play their forbidden keys have in the last one that we plays. If we see this symbol, this see symbol, it means that we have to create a major pan starting from C so this smiley face will be a C . Then we will have three forbidden notes starting from C and going up on the keyboard. Then we will play this one. This are forbidden keys, and this is a key that we will play. This is a pattern for the major chord. Everywhere you put it on the keyboard, you will get a major court. I used smiley faces because you will hear later that this major structure this major pattern, creates a court that sounds happy and very stable. And that is why I used smiley faces so that you can easily remember the major court as a bunch of smiley faces and four billion notes. Now let's put the pattern we've learned before the major court pattern. Let's put it on the keyboard anywhere you want. I will choose to stop from here from the sea, you can start anywhere you want, because it's the same better everywhere. Everywhere you move, you have to remember the pattern you saw earlier for the major court. So you have a smiley face, then three forbidden notes, but then another smiley face, then to forbidden notes and then another smiley face. You can use this fingers, or you can use these figures. See, so 13 and five. So this is a major court. If you listen to it, you will notice that it has a happy and pleasant sound. Happy, happy Smiley faces with three forbidden knows and another to forbidden. See Major because it starts from C. So this is the same major court. As you said before, you will find it on scores or more on the Internet as a simple see. If we move somewhere else and we keep the same pattern, you will see that we have the same expression off the court. A major one, the happy one. So let's move for somewhere around here. What key is that? Let's see a B, C d e f. So we want to create on F major chord. So smiley face. Want to three forbidden. Another smiley face. Want forbidden and another smiley face. This is the major court. Now let's keep the same pattern in mind and start from this key. Let's see a B C D. So we start from the smiley face. 123 forbidden smiley face one to forbidden as my face. So this is a day major court. There's a trick that I want to tell you so that you can learn more easy. There are certain major chords that use on Lee White Keys, and it is easy for you to remember those because don't have to always think about the pattern so you can learn them as they are. The 1st 1 we saw is the C major court. The C major chord has Onley wide keys in it, See has only white keys in it. Another one is the F major. It only has white kids need F major, and the 3rd 1 is G major, this one. So you have to remember that C major any major and G major are born with Onley white keys. The street are the only ones that do not use black keys in their pattern for the major court. Of course you have to study and you have to repeat the court's not just C, F and G, but the others as well, and you will get better every day. But remember the pattern and apply it everywhere. 4. Minor chords: Now let's talk about the minor court. The minor chord. It's written like this. It's ah, symbol off the key. You have to start your Bethan from and then a little m from minor. So the difference between the major court and minor core is that the minor court has a small M next to the symbol of the key. You have to start on. Ah, here I give you an example of D minor and F sharp minor. So you see these m and you know that you have to create a minor chord using this pattern. Let me explain to you dis bevin Well, we have the same a start with a face That means that you will start your pattern from the leather you see here and then you have to forbidden notes. You count two forbidding key's going up and then another face. That means a key that you have to play and then another three forbidden notes, keys and another phase that you have to play Now. The difference between the happy faces and the set fazes me that the major chords are happy and the minor court some of the big, more set and this effect is gained through changing this face. This is the only element off the structure that moves. So as you can see, this one stays, this one stays. This one stays, and this one moves here. It means that it comes a little bit closer to the first note, and this changing off the element gives an effect from happy to sad. You will hear later what I'm talking about, and then because this one is moving down a little bit here, it will be a forbidden note here, another one, another one, and this one stays the same. So the difference between the major court and the minor court is just this center element that moves down a little bit. And that's why the faces from the minor court are set. The minor court is not always used in set songs. Sometimes it's used for romantic or melancholic ALS songs, and the major court can be used in very powerful songs, not always happy. But we say happy and sad for you to better remember the expression off the courts. Let's get to the minor court. How does it look on the keyboard? So let's start from see like we start in our previous lesson. This we will be a C minor court. So we have ah, ascent face. We have to forbidden to forbidden notes and then another set phase and then three forbidden notes and then another set pace. And here is the C minor court. This was the C major court. See, I'm just moving this one. This is Major and this is minor. This is happy. This is sad by just moving one element moving one element. We get happy or set. Let's try to play it from this note. So it's a B. C. D will be really great if you could just learn the notes without counting them from the A. When you start, it's okay to come them from the from a. But then maybe you can map them somehow your own way and just call them by their names like this is C because it is placed before two black notes. So see, it's always before two black notes say thistles. Another see, it's always before two black notes. This is another scene. It's placed before two black notes like the area as well. A is always after the two black notes from the group off three here is another A. Here's another and so on. So maybe you can learn the notes as they are without counting them from a But until then, you can do that. So we were here. This is a B C D s. So we will try to make the e minor court he to forbidden face three Forbidden. Another set base. So this is the e minor Ford E Major e mine. You can hear the difference. This The 1st 1 was happy. The 2nd 1 was set. Now, as in our previous lesson, I wanted to remember the courts that are naturally minor. That means that they don't use black keys. The major one were See n g. The major one and the minor ones are a A minor chord uses only white keys So you don't have to think about it very much. When you see a minor, you know exactly what to play. It keeps the same pattern as you see. But I wanted to know that this hordes don't use black keys. They're minor. Naturally so a is minor. Naturally, D is minor. Naturally, de is minor. Naturally, record and E quart. It's minor, natural. So again, let's recap A. It's minor. We don't want to talk about the because it's more complicated, and we'll talk about it later. Let's be beside See, it's major Dean. It's minor E. It's minor F. It's major G. It's major. And to get back to a it's mine. I wanted to remember the patterns and try to exercise, placing the patterns on every note on the keyboard so that you get all sorts off courts. 5. Diminished chords: next the diminished core, the diminished court. It's written like this with the symbol off the note. You have to start your present on the leather and then the symbol deem from diminished. So deem you will find a letter and demand. Then you know that you have to start your diminished pattern court from this note. This is just an example. You can fight it all. Eddie. Other key, As the name says, the diminished chord has a structure that is smaller than the ones we've learned before. The major in the minors. This one's had 12345678 elements this one as well. 12345678 elements and the diminished court will have 1234567 elements. That means that the court will be smaller on the keyboard. I didn't give an expression to discord because you were here later. How it sounds. It has a tension in it. So for you to better remember this diminish court, you have to remember, is the smallest one. So it has only seven elements. And compared to the minor court, you just move this set face down a key and get the diminished chord. So everything is the same as you can see here. But this element comes down a key and then get the diminished court. So let's see how diminished chords look on the keyboard. We already know the pattern. They are smaller than the minor chords. Let's strike to do the pattern from Accord a minor court that he already No, it's minor because it's naturally minor. So we'll have this D minor court. So a B c d. From this d minor chord. And now if you want to make it diminished, we just come with the last face. We come a little bit down, so we will have face forbidden forbidden face. Forbidden forbidden face. This is the diminished D court. Hear how it sounds? It creates a lot of tension. Thistles diminished. This is minor, and this is diminished. This'll one sounds with a lot of tension, and this one sounds stable. Let's try another one. That's right from this note. What is this? It's a B C D e f sharp, but this is an f sharp, so we will create the F sharp, diminished court. So this one to forbidden this one to forbidden. And this one this would be the minor one, the F sharp minor. And this one is the F sharp diminished sounds tensed as well. I'm showing it this differences because I want you to know their difference expression in the actual music. So it's okay to learn the patterns and know everything like mathematical. But I also want to you to hear them here, the cords and understand their expression. And in time, you will feel in music where this court are placed. 6. Augmented chords: now the or commended court. The or rented court has this symbol. It means that you will see the key that you have to start on and then it's followed by a U . G. This symbol that comes from the name augmented. So the 1st 3 letters of augmented are placed here for you to know that you have to create undocumented court structure. Starting from this key, I give an example to start an augmented a court structure from this e flat. So you will start your court from the flat so this space will be e flat and you will create undocumented structure. As the name says. The augmented court would be the largest off them all. It will have nine elements in it. Three keys played simultaneously as in the other ones. But the whole structure has nine elements in it. So we can refer to the major court and see how this one is born. Everything remains the same as you see. The difference is that this smiley face on yet goes a key up and then we gain here another forbidden elements. So you will have face 34 billion elements face. That means Kiwi play three kids. We don't another key replay. Another three we don't and another key will play. So if you compare it with the major court, you can see that the only difference is that is the's. Smiley face becomes a forbidden element and gain another key that we play. So it's better for you to remember that if we make the major court a little bigger, we get you augmented one. And if we make the minor core smaller, we get the diminished one. Just by moving the last element, this one goes down and this one goes up a key. So this is a structure for the augmented court. Now let's see it on the piano. As you already saw in the pattern example, it's kind of, Ah, major court, but a little bit bigger, like the diminished one was a minor chord. A little bits more So let's take a major chord. The C major board I like much so a B seat, and when we make it documented, we moved this smiley face more up, and this is augmented See court and again can hear that it sounds very with a lot of tension, not like the major one is stable and happy C major and this is see augmented. So you see the pattern face forbidden, forbidden, forbidden face forbidden for being forbidden and face. This is documented court. Let's try another one from my let's Let's take this this note So a B c D. This is a very sharp or this is a key flat. So we will make on, let's say, the sharp the sharp augmented chord So sharp, forbidden, forbidden, Forbidden. No forbidden, Forbidden, forbidden. And no, this is the documented the sharp court. It sounds like this. This would be the major one here. Thinks is documented one. So this is deal meant accord on the keyboard. 7. Suspended chords: we have two types off suspended courts. One is suspended second and the other is suspended. For this is their names. You will see what type of suspended court you have to create when you see the symbol on a score. So it's written like this. The name off the key have to start on the name of the court. See, I give an example the sea and then says from suspended a symbol. They both have the same symbol. After the letter, you have to start a court from and then the suspended second court has it to and the suspended Fortkord has a four. Now they expect to you the bathrooms for two suspended chords. The suspended second board has a smiley face than a forbidden key than another smiley face than four forbidden keys and then land Smiley face. Some will play this green smiley faces and we will count these s forbidden keys. The suspended four chord has the same type of elements, but seen backwards. So as you can see here we had one forbidden and four forbidden Between the kids we play and here we have four forbidden and one forbidden. So it's the same structure but red backwards. It is very easy to remember the suspended course because they're the same. But read backwards. Now let's see how the suspended second that suspended fourth chords look on the keyboard and how they sound. Let's be the Sea Court. We will first use the pattern from suspended second court. So we said that we have this face and then we have one forbidden and then vote. And then we have 1234 forbidden. And so this is the suspended see court. It sounds great, says an interesting color like I don't know, Let's let's see Ah Major and then suspended second for you to hear their expressions. So major and this is suspended second, so Major suspended. Second sounds interesting. So this is the sea suspended. Second court. Let's right on this one. A suspended second court. So this is a and this is a sharp or a B flat B flat forbidden. No. 1234 forbidden. And so this is the B flat or a sharp suspended second court and again has a nice texture. Nice, nice sound. Let's write a suspended fort. Has you said before. You know the pattern. So you just applied. Let's start from here, for example. So a B C D. We start from Dean have we will have a d suspended Ford a court. So Dean and then 12 34 notes forbidden on the nose and then one forbidden and then not. This is the suspended fourth court. So, as you can see and we've so earlier, it's the Beveren from the suspended second but backward, the suspended. The suspended second D court would be something like, so to hear very close to each other and then here apart. And the suspended Ford d chord would be like this, this one very close and this one apart. So this is the suspended four chord D chord, the same pattern. You could use it all over the place everywhere, like we said before. So these are the suspended second, let's suspend the fourth chords that have very interesting expression, but they are not so test like the diminished and the augmented courts. But they have, ah, certain beautiful color 8. 7th chords: now the last chords will talk about are the seventh chords. These courts have four elements that we play on the keyboard. The other ones had tree elements that we played on the keyboard. This one has four elements that will play the 1st 1 You will find it really like this. So a symbol of the note off the name of the court you have to start your court from. I gave an example off F F court and then a seven next to it. This type of court has the structure that I've read on here. That means major or minor court plus to forbid in elements and another kid that we play. So you add to the major or minor structures another +24 billion elements in another key that you play here. As you can see, it's an F major. It's a single letter it doesn't have on em. So it's a major structure, and we add this seven. So we have this elements to be. That means we'll have a Neff major court, and then on top of it, we will add another two forbidden elements. Have another kid that we play. If we have this symbol uh, D minor seven. As an example, you would have a minor structure starting from the minus structures from the and then on top of it, you would put another two forbidden elements and another smiley face that you play on the keyboard. So that's why I've written major or minor court. The symbol says, if it's major or minor, and then you add another two forbidden elements and a key that you play so you have a total off four keys in this seventh structure. Another type or seventh chord is the one using a major seven. So you will see the symbol looking like this, the name off the court you have to play and then major seven. That means that is different from the one before because has a major for major in front of the seven. I gave you two examples. You can have a G major court with a major seven or a D minor court, plus a major seven, so don't be confused. If you see this major symbol, it doesn't mean that you have to make a major court. The major court has a simple, simple, a simple letter. Now let me tell you about this structure. This pattern that you have to create on the keyboard you will have a major or minor court, and on top of it you will have three keys that you don't play forbidden keys and then one key that you will play. So you will play this elements after the major or the minor court, depending on the symbol you see. Now let's see how this goes on the keyboard. 9. 7th chords on the keyboard: Okay, let's see the seventh chord, um, on the keyboard and hear how it sounds. So we will try on a major chord with 1/7 So a major originally a major. So it's one. This thesis, the smiley face and we have three forbidden and my face and into forbidden thesis is the A major war, and we add another note to it. So we will have four faces, smiley faces and it would be the note we want to play. It will be after two forbidden notes as notes and 1/7. So does is the A seven. This is the major board, and this is the seventh Ward. Good. Here we had this sound, then sounds beautiful and the other one with the major seven. It will be like this. We have the same major structure and here for bidding, Forbidden, forbidden, and we play this one. So this is the a major seventh chord again. It's interesting, and this is with just seven major 77 This is with major seven. They sound different. As you can hear. Let's write with the minor chord we will trey with eat minor chords or a B C. D e minor Ford mine. So to forbidden and then three forbidden e minor court. And we have a seven to beat. That means another to forbidden notes. And the seventh is this element is called the seventh and then another one with major seventh. It will be like this. That means that we have here three forbidden. So with major seven, the minor core with major seven. 10. Inversions: Now let me show you what you can do with all the courts we've already learned. You can evert the courts, so we will talk about inversion off the courts. Let's take a court, for example, The C major chord C major chord Ive version means sending the elements off the court somewhere else on the keyboard. But you have to keep the same elements of the court, and they will sound different. Even though they're the same notes in this court. They will sell a little bit different, and it can choose what in version two to play to make different colors in music. So this is called the root position. Why's it collected? Because this is the root root like implants. They have ruled they have something stable to to guide them, and that's why the accord. It's called C court because this is the route. The sea is the root, and it's called this one root position. That means that we keep the better with that we've already learned so everything we've learned before, it's in the Ruth position. Every court that we've learned before because it has, as the first note the root note and is the noted that gives the name to the court. Okay, if we want to invert this to have a first inversion that will mean that keep this two elements and that the sea will be played somewhere else on the keyboard here in our upper position. So not the sea from here, but a knopper. See, this one is another C. So this seeing goes here, we keep those elements as they are and this is a same major chord inversion. Okay, so we converted. Another possibility is to move this element up so we will lose it from here. The e key, we lose it from here. We keep those two elements here and replace the e here. But this is any so we don't like it here anymore. We played here who have a C chord major chord in second inversion. So we had imagined there's a bold We had this c major chord in the root position. That means that we have to see here Down is a fruit and everything is stable. And then we move it here up. This is the first inversion and then we move this one up and is the second diversion this rt Onley possible ways to invert this court The run position, the first invention Because if we go higher with the sending the notes higher and you send this one up on active, this is called inductive up a new active. So not this g here. But there's you here. As you see, you get to the right position again. This is a root position and this is another position. So there are only two possible inversion in the minor. Major diminished augmented courts in every court there on Lee to inversion possibles and the ones we've learned before our Ruth positions. Okay, so you can place the court like this or like this same chord inversions. Or you can also use the notes from that court in different places for the right hand and for the left hand, and you will get beautiful colors. So I say you should try everything after you learned the court's very well. And you know exactly where to place them and the structures and balance and everything and then try to make different colors. So let me show you how you can Too easy a compliment with the cores you already know Let's take again the C major chord that I love so much. The C major chord very stable. And now, with my left hand, I usually play the route that means the sea. The note that gives the name to the court I played here on. They also played here. It's not the rule. You can place the notes from the court anywhere you want, but this is the sound that I like. So I played the route, the sea here, the sea here, the sea here and then the structure from the major court with Kevin that we've already learned. And this is a C major chord played with both. Hence, you can also invert the scored. I could learn before and play look like this or you complete first like this and then like this. It's a pretty simple a compliment that you can do or you can play each element at its own time. So, like this or you can come. You can't beautiful things with this court. I don't advise you to play the same court with both hands like this. The sequel major court here and the C major core here because that's a very good here, down on the keyboard, on every piano. It was very good. When you play whole court, they are too close to each other and their low when there does a very good frequencies don't sound good together. So I advise you to play the cord without an element, maybe just a place where the notes apart from each other, or just to play the route off the court as you wish. But don't play the whole board on your left hand because it will not sound good. Or you could say the court without the element here, the major port. So we'll play justice this and then play another route, the sea carpet again here So you're allowed to play any element of the cord that may see E or G. You can play them anywhere on your keyboard, and it will sound beautiful playing the same elements everywhere or four Sam elements like the same elements from the C major chord that I played them over the keyboard everywhere I want, and that is how you create a symbol, a compliment 11. Use the chords: Now I want to show you how to use everything we've learned before in this course in creating Easy a compliment for very popular songs. All you have to do is the search the Internet for a certain song and court, and then just play the chords that I've told you in the position you want to make beautiful music with them. We will try to play together to die for from Sam Smith. So what you need to do is listen to the song you want to play and then try to count the beats off the song. The beads mean the tempo and the rhythm of the song, and you usually have to keep one chord for four bits. You will see this in a to die for from Sanskrit. So let's let's start with the song and you will see them what we have to do. So, as if see, we have on F Major, a minor C major and F major, this feather repeats. So what we have to do is to feel the beat off the song and keep every court for four beats . You can either count Theis forbids like this just by on 234 and then moved to the other court. A minor 1234 C major. 1234 And then again, F major 234 Or you can keep them steady for four beads or you can just play our pages. So this is a cord to structure and this is our page. You It means that you don't play the whole chord at the same time, the same for all the elements in the same time. But you just pay them in their own times are pages you can do whatever you want. The important thing is to play the exact cores that you see reason there is getting here. We could hear the way for 1 to 3 way 3134 So this is the big toe that have to count on keeping the cords. So four bits on F 2344 Teoh, four c and then we can play the song and again on again. Now what else you can do is something that we hear on the song. You can do this movement. So 123 and four that means that we don't play their chord with all elements in the same time. But you do this movement So this the court and you do this. Yeah, And when you count, it's one than to win three and four and two. The other court one and two and three and four and two other court and escort to and they do this all over again. Another thing you can do is use the inversion off the course so that you don't jump so much . I don't like jumping Go on the keyboard somewhere. So run. And 23 and four and 24 And now I don't want to jump here to the C major chord. I'm here at a mine in court and I have the sea here. And I used the second inversion off the Sea court so that I'm close to this. A minor court. That means this is something you will get used to in time. Don't don't be scared. So this is the a minor chord. I don't want to jump here to the C major. So I revert the C major. As we've learned before I go, I sent this up and then I sent this one up and I get this inversion off the C major court. So this is a minor court, and this is C major ports second inversion. So I played like this C major. So I'm here. I don't move a lot. I don't jump about because it sounds better like this. Yeah, then like this and jump. Get here. So jumping doesn't sound very well. So, as you can see, you just have to look for the port on the Internet and then just read them and place them on the piano in different positions. Place the left hand on the boots and the right hand as his job as we've learned in this course. So this is all hope This is very useful for you and have fun playing keyboards.
