1. Welcome To The Ultimate Piano Course!: Hi, guys. Welcome to the ultimate piano. Of course. My name is Mark from PM Piano, and I'm going to be teaching you all of this stuff in this course are first of all, want to thank you for putting your trust in me and teaching. You had to play this wonderful instrument, the piano. Now, if you're anything like me, you want to just skip this video and go ahead and roll it into one of the sections and actually learn stuff. But I want to urge you please, which is video till the end. There's a lot of important information in this video that is actually going to help you to get the most out of the course. Okay, so just sit tight. It's a couple of minutes. I'll try and make it as quick as possible, and then we'll get started. So, first of all, a little bit about the website. Roy deny the courses devoted in nine sections. We have to bone in sections, which is composing songs on reading sheet music at this moment, while some recording the bonus section for composing songs isn't finished yet. And this is why today, at the moment of recording this video, it's September 1st on. I've just released this course 40 prerelease until the first of October. During this period, it is cheaper to body cause it's $59 for the regular price right now that's gonna be bumped up to 89 on the first of October. OK, since this is a new website, it's possible that some of the stuff doesn't work yet. You always have these little things that may go wrong. So therefore, I want to ask your patients in that matter, if you notice something isn't working, just shoot me a message. Fire the help bottom, okay? And I'm gonna tell you where you can find that later. But hopefully everything is working Fine. But you never know. It's a new website. So the first couple of days, some things can go wrong. So I want to ask you for your patience for that. So I'll be working on the composing song section on. That will definitely be open The first of October. Hopefully a little bit sooner. Thes section playboy here is scheduled to be released on September 4th. Okay, says section one until six is going to be up to date. Section 90 Bonus Section two Rechy music should be finished today as well. And then on the Monday the Fourth of September, Section seven should also be so section seven and eight of the earning sections that still require a little bit of work. And I'll be finishing that during this pretty release. So how does the website work? Basically, if you look at the corner road there, you can see three little bars. Okay, Little Boris like that. And if you click that that's the menu. You can find your sign up on the help button on below that you can also see all of these sections so you can simply click it when you click. One of these sections is gonna open up. You will see all of the lessons that are currently up in that section. I'm going to united them, be updating this course. And when I do so, it's possible that all the lessons disappear and new lessons get in its place. Okay, The content will always be the same or better. Okay, So if I remove a lesson, I'm replacing it with one. Sometimes I'm not happy with how the lesson is coming out of one of fine tune into a little bit. So I'll remove that lesson. All update you for the new one. And of course you're gonna have access to that as well. Speaking off access, you've gotta live time access to the course, so you will always be able to log in. I don't know if 50 years from now the Internet is still thing, but if it is, you also have access to the website. I said, I want to talk about something very important to help button. Basically, if you open up the menu right there again, if you open that, you can submit a ticket and if you submit a ticket, I will receive an email that you submitted the ticket and I can actually reply to that ticket. Okay? So that simply means that we can communicate directly. You can also reach out to me on facebook dot com slash pgm piano or on YouTube by private message. But the tickets on this website automate sees a way to do it, because then I noticed you're enrolled in the course. It just makes everything a lot easier. Okay, if you have any questions at all You can always send an email to PGN piano fans at gmail dot com or again on Facebook if you can't find that help thing. Okay? I've also placed the helping below every video. So if you're watching that video a little bit below there, there's also help button right there. If you want to ask me something about a specific video, please always mention that video. Okay, so maybe lesson 6.2, they say, Hey, Mark, I was watching less than 6.2 at about five minutes in you Said isn't isn't that And I don't understand, because blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. This way I can find that lesson quickly, and it can answer you. Otherwise, I have to ask you What are you talking about? What do you mean, exactly? And I would just take a long time. Okay. I guess that all makes sense. What? I just wanted to put that out here. So important points for now. This is the pre release from September 1st to October 1st, I'm going to be adapting the website a little bit, tweaking it based on your feedback. So if you tell me a mark less than 7.3 is unloading correctly. Then I'm going to be tweaking that. Okay, during this period, that is what he prizes Lyra right now. But I wanted to give you access as soon as possible. Then on the first of October, the whole website should be done. Everything should be running as smoothly as possible. If you want to have help, go to the menu and click help or below any video. And you can open a new ticket. Freud there. And I will answer you there as soon as I can. And if you want to navigate the Web site, you can also open the menu. All of the different sections will come up, and you can simply click the section that you want to work on. So now that we got all of that boring stuff out of the way, let's move on to lesson 1.2. I'm basically going to explain how you should use this course to up your piano skills. Let's do that right now. 2. 1.2 Piano Course Layout: Hi, guys. Welcome to less than 1.2 is no really a lesson yet technically, but I want to use this video to explain to you how you can actually use this course for your benefit. First of all, I don't know what your skill currently issue may have never touched the piano before. And that's absolutely fine or you may have been playing for a couple of years. Therefore, I have to create the opportunity for everybody to be able to enroll in the course on. Then later on, we'll build a B level. So in this section, Section one, I'm gonna be talking about the name of the keys on the piano on, and there's quite a lot of them. And even if you think you know them, you may still wonder which those and even if you think you know them, you may still wanna wish those lessons. All of my lessons always have deeper levels. Okay, so even if you think is just about keys, I might be teaching you other stuff in there as well. And if you think you know all of the keys, do you know what an F double sharpest If you don't. Maybe you should. Which the lesson about double sharps and double flats. Okay, I know. For some of you, this might be very basic. Seven. You already know all of the key zinger. Like I'm not gonna wish that. That's absolutely fine. You can move on to the next section, but if you're new to piano where you haven't been playing that much Or maybe you live in a country where you where you have a different system like the do re me, Fassel or even in Germany, whether notes are different as well. You may just want to quickly run through those lessons to make sure that we're at the same love. Then we're gonna move on to Section two, which is octaves and skills again. You might think you already know all the skills. I'm actually teaching you a lot about how I want to form this course in that section as well. This is not a theory course. This is a course on how to play the piano, how I can get you up to speed as quickly as possible. But we will have to discuss some theory first. Okay, That's just how it is If you're going rock climbing, you want to have a little bit of theory about where to attach the rope, you know, Might be a good idea before you plummet to your death. Okay, so is the same her on the piano. I need to explain some of the basics first, before we can actually start to play. But then I want to get you up to playing as soon as possible. So in section two, I'm going to be talking about skills and octaves, but with the philosophy of this course, which is basically to learn a new song every single day, I want to get you up to that level where you can learn a new song, every single light. It doesn't mean you have 200 do something every day. But it simply means that if you would start at nine. In the morning, I want you to be able to play that song by six. In the evening. Okay? Said that if you just have one day in the weekend or even just a couple of hours, you can actually make some real progress. Instead of struggling with a song for months and months and months it will just say too long. So please watch section to even if you know what an octave is even if you know it is skill is because I'm going through it. I have a real system here in this course. Then we're going to be moving on to Section three, which is courts. Courts are the rial fundamental of this course. I am using courts not just as a building block. I'm actually using courts to teach you how to learn songs. Really quick it to me quite some time to figure out how courts can benefit you that much. But now, because I've been really absorbed by these courts on by the whole theory about it and the way you can put them together and the core progressions and how all of these songs are built up, it is so easy for me to learn a song is just freaking ridiculous. Okay, so that's why courts are very, very important in this course. It's also why are switched the way I was teaching when YouTube from letters and single notes to courts, because I truly believe that if you use courts in the way that I'm doing, it's gonna benefit you the most. Especially if you like to play songs that are popular that are just on the radio or some rock songs. You know, some R and B, like all of these songs, used courts in such a simple way that if you understand that, it's gonna be like a piece of cake. Okay, So, please, which this section Section number three. I also added some bonus lessons in there for you, Suss to sells for an augmented and diminished courts so you can check that out as well. Then in section four, we're going to be mastering courts. So where in Section three is basically theoretical in section four, I'm actually going to show you how to use these courts. Had to play with them. Onda how to make up your own stuff right there. Then we're going to be moving on to section five. Why? We're going to be combining on left and right like a pro. Okay, I'm going to be teaching you my secrets in how I actually combine the left in the right hand and I'm demonstrating you would not to do and what you should do. That's a very important section because I get so many questions about good morning left a ride, you wouldn't believe it. So I devoted a complete section to it then is going to get interesting. Section six. I'm going to be explaining to you what I actually do to learn a new song every single day. That is the section that made me come up with this course. That is the section where went like, Okay, it's so easy now for me to learn these songs and I'm not bragging. I'm not trying to brag is just like when it collect. It just really clicked. So I was like, Okay, it's so easy for me to do this now I need to tell the other people I need to tell them, because when you understand this stuff, it's gonna make it such a blessing for you to play the piano, Then in Section seven. For those if you were interested in that, I'm going to teach you how I play by ear because all of the lessons that I put on YouTube or not from sheet music anymore, I used to use cheap music. But now I just play by ear, find some courts and then I play the rest by here. So I want to teach you how to do that than in section eight. I want to talk a little bit about composing songs. I'm not a true composer, but I can teach you the basics right there. And if you're talented, you can pick it up, you know, disguise the limit on then in section nine. For those a few who like it, you can learn how to reach Ive music. I personally really don't like she music in a way off, putting it on the piano and just playing off of that like a robot. I don't like that. But maybe you actually do like the Tanja bility of sheet music, and it is of great help to you. So whether I like it or not, shouldn't be an issue. If you like it, I'm still going to teach you how to do it. Also, I'm using cheap music now and then to play the intro of songs. So, yes, sometimes I do you sheet music to decide for a song or to help me to figure out how to play it. I just don't play off off sheet music if that makes sense. I never put it on the piano to play something. I'm so that's it. That's the known sections of the course that are up right now. I'm maybe adding more sections later on. I don't know yet. Maybe you guys are requesting something else, and I'll put that into courses. Well, I'm also going to include a test video in every single section. Okay, said the end of this section. I'm going to be testing your skills. Those air currently not up yet. I will be working on that next week because I want to receive your feet back a little bit as well before I'm actually putting of the tests. If you guys are going like I don't understand this or don't understand that, then I want to put that in the test video. Make sure you understand ALOF that if that makes sense, so I'm not going to make you wait any longer. Let's get this party started. Let's move on to Lesson 1.3 3. 1.3 The Secret: I was working to lesson 1.3. Right now, I just want to take a very quick moment to explain you about the secret off this course. And then we're going to be moving on to less than 1.4. I don't want to be talking to you about the roid keys. Okay, so this is the last video of me just talking to you. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I like to talk. I don't know what this I just love to talk. So secrets of this course, basically the biggest secret of this course is that for 99% of these songs, it only takes four steps to learn the song. Okay, Step number one is realizing that almost any song out there consists of just seven notes. You can play almost any song in the world with seven notes. And I'm not talking about cheating, you know, like, ah, you can play a song with these four courts. You know, I'm not talking about I mean, in the original way, the actual way they play it. It's usually being played with only seven notes. Says step number one is for you to figure out which seven nights they are okay. Later on, we will discover that there's 12 notes on the piano. Basically 12 keys, at least that you compress before you basically get it is same. So what we have to do is we have to find five keys. There were no other like to play on seven keys that we are allowed to play in any given song. We call these seven hours together a key, so it's basically a family of a couple of notes, and we call that a key, and it could be a C major key. It could be in a flat key. It could be a B flat monarchy doesn't really matter. We'll talk about that later in the skills on octopus section. But for now, for you, it's important on the sun. There's only four steps into learning. Any song on the first step is to figure out which key the songs in which seven nodes are you allowed to play on which five notes should you skip once you know that it is good to realize that almost any song out there has what we call a chord progression. Are we talking about that lady you don't need to remember it, but that's step number two. A corporate Grecian is basically sharing you, which sound to play when. Okay, so Step number one is to figure out which seven notes step Number two is to figure out which sounds Are we going to be using it? Usually four of these sounds right off to reach up, so you find the seven notes, and then you find the four sounds. That's step number two, then step number three Very easy. What is it that your left hand is going to play now that you knew the seven notes you can use and a four sound chef to commit? And then after that step for what is the right hand? Have to play again? That Did you know what the seven notes are? What the four sounds are and what that left hand is playing basically, because the left hand is giving you foundation a structure to play on a background music, if you will, that Roy Hand is free to do whatever it wants. So in these four steps, you can learn almost any song out there, and that's the secret to this course. I'm going to teach you how to make it that simple right here, right now, in the ultimate pinnacles 4. 1.4 White Piano Keys: I goes working to lesson one point for I see you made it through my obsessive talking. I have the reputation with my friends that I have a maximum of three days that they can spend with me. And then they have to go to a psych ward on because they got a Bernard s. Oh, yeah, I do talk a lot. I like to talk a lot, but in my opinion, it's better to talk too much because you can actually skip the video in normal and then move on to the part that you actually want to see. Then talk to little where you go, like dude, like I paid for these scores. And now I don't understand anything because you don't explain anything. So I like to over explain stuff in the course and the reason I do that as people in a different speeds in different ways. Are we talking about that later? A swell on. I basically want to make sure that everybody who enrolls in this course is able to follow along. So now we're really starting at this lesson. I want to teach you all of the white keys on the piano. If you already know the names. That's absolutely fine. You can skip onto the black Keys, but then, if you think you already know those, I want you to pay attention to the lesson after that because we're gonna have some special names, like see Flat E sharp. Um, e double sharp, that kind of stuff. It's probably stuff that you haven't heard of before. So make sure to which at least that lesson for now, let's have a look at the piano. OK, so we got the piano road here. One of the first things we have to identify is the middle C Is this note brought here on? As you can see, it's a little bit gray, and it has a little c on it. Okay, I did that to make it easy for you to find it right here. Now, there's one thing I don't want you to do, and that is to get these little stickers and put them on the keys. Okay, because that would just prevent you from learning all of these keys really quickly. It's basically a short cut, and shortcuts in this case don't really work. So I don't want you to get any stickers. Just follow along right here. And in a couple of minutes, you'll know all of these notes. Okay, So the middle, see, How do we find it if you put your fingers on the edge of the piano. And I know it's not entirely covered in the camera view right here. This is somewhere where you should be able to see my fingers. You basically just run your fingers City middle. He will end up on this D probably. And then you just move right here and we got the middle seat. Okay, Now there's seven wide notes. Only now you might think that that's way more mark because of good. Like 50. Yes, but basically, there's only seven. If we have a look right here, we can have a legal right here. We can have a look right here. Okay. And right here, that's basically the same. Okay, because we have 1234567 wide notes and 12345 black nets. So let me clarify that for you. Right there. There we go. Now you can see what I'm talking about. So this section right here, you can also find it further down. But I wanna figures on this one right here. So the first night in the section, as I've already told is see the middle seat on. Basically, the notes are in alphabetical order. But for some weird reason us pianists liked is sort on the sea when explaining stuff. OK, but they are in alphabetical orders. If we go up way, have c than de a half on g o k c d e f g. Now we didn't continue on with Hey h because remember, we only have seven white keys, as you can see. So we have to start over a on, then be okay. So there might be a little wit for u c d e f G A B. But we can also shift this a little bit to the left and then you can see a B C d e f g. It just doesn't sound that nice when I play this. Okay? It doesn't sign us. Notice. Okay, Right there. So right here we have all of the white necks. So learning thes keys might be a little bit confusing in the beginning, because it, like, there's so much going on right here. I totally understand that if if you would feel a little bit overwhelmed, but you don't have to. Okay? You actually learned this quite quick when I was doing this, I learned it in about a day. I mean, I did play about three or four hours in the first day that I played piano, but still, I learned it in a day or maybe two. And then I knew all of these nights. So let's clear this up and I'm gonna explain them to you once more, So a B C d e af g A. If you want to find that middle, see the white one. You get to the two black notes that are together, and then you simply take the sea Onley left of it. Okay? And that's not just for the Middle Sea. Any sea you will fund right there. Two black notes. See two black nodes. See it. It's just on the laugh of these two black notes. You'll find the sea actually, a couple of sees hidden from view. This one right here that's not on camera. And this one right here. So, in total, we have 1234567 eight sees. So what I want to do right now is I simply want to run through all of these white keys, and I'm gonna just as I just there with the C We're gonna play all of them on the piano, wants to find all of these keys. I'm going to demonstrate it once. And then I want you to pause the video and try to do the same. Okay, So again, we're gonna start will. See, I'm not saying the camera view, but you can just use your whole piano cell. Startle. See? Uh huh. Intended us to be that quick. Okay, you can take it a little bit easier. And now I want to do G. We're not gonna do d. We're gonna do G. So, g, if you remember, Is this when you have the three notes right here on just this one right here is G so wanted to find all the G's on the piano. So not pause the video and do the same. I hope you turn on the video again on, but I'm back if not used when we got a problem, son. Allah's doobie. Uh huh. And maybe e. Um, let's start here. Of what? About half. Have we done a yet? I think so. And as a d like that. So now what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna be playing a couple of notes, and I want you to tell me what note it is. A case. I'm gonna be playing the note, and you need to call out that newt. Then after that, I'm going to be calling out a note, and you need to play that note and check if you got the correct one. Okay, let's do it. So came Please tell me what this notice right here. If you said a you're correct, de, uh, be G e be a see, uh, be de s de g a c e c g r b f de e a f de g c b on a Okay. I went a little bit quicker at the end. I hope you've been able to catch up now. They were going to do the other way around. I'm going to call out a note. I want you to play that note for me on the piano. I'm gonna again, like this bit up right here, so I just want you to play that this area, okay? That's all we have to do right now. Just played in this area, and I'm going to demonstrate to you which noted is a couple of seconds after our call tonight. So could you please for me, that sort easy. Play a C. If you play that note, you're correct. Okay, Maybe you can play an F. What about Ah Di? What about it? Be? Can you play another f a e g? Oh, see? E a on Let's do a d and the be together. Why not for the d and the B right here. Okay. So I hope you did pretty well on that. If No, please repeat it for now. I want to be moving on to the Black Keys in the next lesson. 5. 1.5 Black Piano Keys: Hi, guys. I hope you would to prove this lesson. It's actually a requirement in order to which this last thing you need to have seen the previous one, which was wide keys. So right now I want to be talking to you about the Black Keys. And unfortunately, the Black Keys don't carry their own name on every black heat. Carries two names to make it a little bit more interesting, I guess. Okay. So whereas with the wide keys, we could simply go C d E f g a b right there with the black, he's is going to be a little different. Okay, so first of all, these are the Black Keys. There's five, not seven. And that means that right here, there's no Blackie. Okay, so we go white, black, white, black, white. And then there's no black there. So between this one and this one, there's no Blackie on between these two. There's also no Blackie. So you go white black voids, black voids, right, Black, white, black, white, black wides, White. Now, I know this might seem very dark, you know, but it's actually really important because we only have 12 notes that we can play, and the way they are laid out on the piano is not evenly distributed. Otherwise you would have six blacks and six whites. So something interesting is about to happen here. Okay, so basically, I told you the black notes have two names. It is very easy. A black note is always in the middle between one white and another white. Okay. And it doesn't carry its own name. It's either on the left of a white key or on the right. OK, so if we have a look at this one right here, I want to call this black note to the rot off this one. Lick, it's on the right off this one. Or I can call this black note. It's on the left of this one. Okay, now, hopefully you remember D and E. So this note is either on the right off a d or on the left of a neat Now, that will be very annoying to say I have to play the right of the D in a there, there, there. So that's not how it goes. Okay, if we're all a note and we have to go to the right or up a sui say this is left That is right. We call that down and this up in case of whenever we move up the piano, we get to the right. When have we moved down? Way Gotv left. So if we want to go up from a note, we call that a shop. Okay, Sharp is up sharp. I always see this little point. You know, a little point. It's sharp. It's a point on is going up if we're going down, it's like going to bat because you're gonna lay flat. Okay, If you're good down, it's a flat. So if you sort of this note E and you want to go down to this black one, basically you say it's an e flat decades, an e flat. If you refer from this night right here, Ugo up. It's a sharp say. Then it would be a DIY shop. Now this mine will make any sense you like. Why would they do this? I'll explain that later on any course. Okay, you have to worry about that for now. That's just the way it is, baby. So I want to talk to you about these Sharps first. Okay, So we have these five notes and we Rogan would be referring to them to denote on the left. So I was C and then going up Sharp says c sharp de going up d sharp e going. Ah, that's no black note here. So that means that there's no e sharp right or is there? We'll talk about that in the next lesson, but for now, there's no e sharp as Let's go to ride. Let's go up. Have sharp case. Up until now we have C sharp d shop after shop, Then we have G g shop A a shop on B. There's no black note here as well. Said no, be sharp for today. So basically C sharp d sharp Skipper Node have shop G shop A shop skipper. Note C sharp d shop after shop G shop a shop. Okay, See shop Bishop of Sharp G shop. A show. Now, 40 flats is gonna be a little different because we have to go down. So we start right here on the de d flat e a flat G g flat a a flat and B B for a case a d flat, e flat, G flat a flat B flat or C shop. The shop of shop, the shop a shop. You notice that that different for the shops with sort on C C. Sharp D shop a shop bishop, A shop for the flats. We saw it on D D flat E flat, G flat, a flat B flat. Okay, City names are a little bit different right there. So let's again do a little test. I'm gonna play a couple of notes, and then you have to tell me which note eighties. Okay, so let's do the Sharps first. Okay? So I only tell me what the name is if it's a sharp. So what about this one, huh? It's an af sharp. A sharp de shock. Sharp C sharp, G sharp, a sharp Ah Dee Sharp C sharp on F show. Now we're gonna change to flats, so pay attention. I want to hear a flat name. Here we go again. Think about it. A flat e flat, G flat, uh, B flat D flat a flood ive flat B flat. Okay, so we have this Sharps and the flats right now, we're going to do the same thing as we did before I'm going to call out a name on within this area. You're going to play the correct note now. I'm gonna be bit cheeky cause I will call light sharps and flats at the same time. I really don't care. Okay? I'm gonna try and mess you up a little bit, so see if you can catch up. I'll be very impressed if you get at least half of them. The first try. OK, let's give it a go. I want you within this area to play for me a D shop, and I would like to see a g sharp. Can you please play me a D flat? Oh, Oh, have shop. How are you going so far? I mean, if you can follow along. That's really good. That's really impressive. B flat, G flat C sharp. Oh, how about a D flat is the same as the same guys. Okay, How about ah, a flat? Now we're gonna get a little bit quicker, See if you can say with me D shop G flat, a shop, a flat G flood shop, uh, e flat, a flat D flat, a shop B flat, D flat. Jeez, G flat, G flat d shop G shop on E sharp. We don't We don't have any show up in the middle. Okay, so we're gonna be talking about the shop and see flat on be sharp and f flat and all that kind of love in the next lesson. 6. 1.6 Special Piano Key Names: Hi, guys. I hope you enjoyed the previous two lessons. Wide keys and Blackie's. You don't really have to remember all of them for now. That will be done later. Okay. But it would be cool if you'd leaves. Note a wide keys. See the E f g A B. That would be very useful if you know these white keys. Okay, I understand that for the black, so it might take you a little bit longer, but actually, it isn't all that hard. Okay, so no one of this because these four notes right here because they're a little bit weird, they're next to each other. They're both white on. Basically, I didn't tell you that in the previous lesson on purpose. But basically what a wide note in a black no do when they're next to each other is it's basically half a note higher. Okay, the notice in between two nodes. So it's half a note. And for some people, that's confusing, because from white to black, it's half a note from black to white. It's often it from white to black. It's often from black to white guitar for node and from wide to white, right here and from white to roid. It's a whole note. Okay, so therefore, you might think that from Y two word it's always a whole note. And from white to black, it's 1/2 note as I'm right here from black to black. It's a whole note, black to black. It's the whole note, black to black. It's a whole note as I'm white to Roy is a whole note. White too white is a whole note, and white too white is a whole note. So you might think that going from black to black or white too white is always going to be a whole note. And going from white to black is always going to be 1/2 note. Okay, actually, going from white to black is indeed always half. But sometimes going from white to white can also be half a neck. Nick. Half a Niger's means the closest note to the writer to the left. Look, if I go half for note, I go to the closest note ever go Half a note. I go to the closest. No, while the closest note here is this one. So this gap is actually the same as this gap. Okay, on this gap eyes the Samos, for instance, this gap. Okay, visually, that doesn't make any sense because it seems like this gap is bigger, but actually, it's not. So this Isa completely different gap than this. Okay, because this is a whole note, and this is a whole night on. This is 1/2 note on this is 1/2. He didn't have to remember that, but it's just a little bit of background info. So basically, what we do with the Sharp is we go half a note up on with a flat. We go half a note down, So if we have a look at B sharp, there's no black note to go to, so we would simply go to this one. So this is the B and this will be the B shop because it's half a native right now. Normally, we call this a C, but in some keys in a some skills which will talk about later. That is actually a be sharp. And it's not a C. Same goes for the eat. If we go half a note up, we end up on this one right here, which is not enough for now. No. Right now it's an e shop e often it up shop. Okay, so be half a nude up be shop e half in it up e show. And the same goes on when you go that way. Atthe flats often a dinos flat af half lap right here. Okay. Says sometimes this is an E, but it's actually an f flat. And then see behalf on it down. See flat. Okay. So normally B c e f. And if you're talking sharps and flats, see flats be shop a flat. So basically they're switched positions. The Ava's now colony Andy is now calling maybe a little bit confusing. Fortunately, it doesn't really happen that often. We see a C flat, maybe one of 15 songs, one in 20 songs. Then we see an E sharp. Maybe one in 25 1 30 songs, a flat one in 100 songs on a B sharp. I've maybe one in 200 songs. OK, so they know they're very common. See, Flight is probably the most common one. And then after that e shop. So now let's move on to the next lesson for double shops and double flats 7. 1.7 Double Flats & Sharps: Hi, guys. Woken. See this lesson in which I'm going to explain to you by double Sharps and double flats? It seems a bit like Wow, what is that? Actually, it's really easy as a sub before a sharp just made should go half a note up. Ah, flat. Just me should go half her. No down. Okay, a double sharp. Therefore me should go half on it up. And then again, half a node up a double flat means you go often it down and then half another day. Let me demonstrate you on the screen right now where they look like. Okay, we use the hashtag signed 40 sharp on a little Be for a flat. Okay. So you can watch the screen right now. We have flat sharp as a double flat on double job. So all the double sharp does. Let's say we are on f A. Sharp will be right here. Have shop and half double sharp would be yet another half note higher. Say this one right here will be the af double sharp, a flat, double flat. Let's say you saw here on B so we have B flat, which is half a note down on Be double flat would be this one, which we usually call in A against it is that easy? F have shop. Have double sharp B B flat, be double flat. Now the double sharps double flats are very rare. Maybe wanting 500 songs, you're going to find them, so you don't really have to worry about that. But I wanted to cover it anyway. So for now, let's move on to the final lesson of section one testing your knowledge. 8. IMPORTANT: New Course Available!!: Hi. Thank you for watching the ultimate piano course. I hope you're learning so much right now. Quickly want to tell you about a new course that are released? The ultimate piano courses in at three years old? I made a new course this year. You can actually find a road. Here is the virtual piano teacher course. As you can see, it has a lot more content. There's one day full video content in their on. I think you're going to love that. So go to my account marked Haider, or simply go to skill Shell of com slash user slash pgm piano that you'll be able to find that course right here. Obviously, it's got a lot of good reviews. You can see that on if you get to about. You can actually read everything that we're doing in this course, and it's so much more than in the course or currently watching. So I'm really excited about that. If you want to continue the ultimate piano chords first before moving on, you can do so as well. They overlap a little bit, but not that much has a lot of new content in the Virtual Piano teacher course. I hope to see you there 9. Lesson 2.1 Introduction to Piano Scales: Hey, welcome to the second section or chapter, if you will, of the ultimate piano course in this section, we're gonna be talking about skills and octaves. What I want you to keep in mind there is that, As I said before, I designed this course specifically to teach you how to play piano in a quick way. Okay, and there's a lot of music theory that people can learn that's like so much music theory out there. But not all of that is really useful when it comes to learning how to play songs. This course is aimed at people who want to learn to play quick as, and you don't want to go through the whole process of learning all these theory and they asserted, practice all of that. What I want to do is make sure that you get to playing as quickly as possible, but also that you're able to play in a way that's actually beneficial to. Basically, we're not rushing things, but I'm getting you up to speed as soon as possible. What is that? Because people tend to have a short little motivational span, I myself as well. If I had to learn theory and practice for like, a year before I could play this song, I would never have sought with piano. I started to play a song. That's what I did. It was mad. Wilder was about Yeah, 10 years ago, and I just started to play that song. I didn't know anything about music theory, right? I don't know what the keys were named and all that kind of. So what I'm going to teach you in this action is a bad skills on octaves. They don't necessarily relate to each other that much. But I wanted to teach you by these two things right here. So what I'm gonna teach you about doctors and skills is only soft day. You're going to need in order to boom, get up to the next level and play songs quicker. Okay? And I know maybe a little bit boring, But trust me, if you learn what I teach you in this course, I'm just going to teach you the stuff you need and all the stuff you don't need. I'll chuck that out of the window. OK, So this chapter, it's skills on octaves on. We're going to solve with skills. Did you know that almost any song you hear on the radio consists of only seven notes. Just seven. That's it. I didn't realize that until two weeks ago. From honest. I mean, of course I knew I I kind of knew. But I didn't really realize it like that. Like, Oh, shit, there's only seven notes. There's only seven. And how could it be hard to play a song of theirs? Only seven notes. Right now, you may be wondering, as we watch the piano like Mark in the previous section, you told us there's 12. Like whether I look here or here, there's 12 notes. So what are you talking about? Seven. Well, actually, each of these songs is basically written in a language okay on because there's 12 notes. There's 12 languages, as we will see later on. And then, of course, as many more languages. But I'm not gonna bore you with that. Basically, all we need to know is these 12 languages, and you can compare it with a book. The book was written in a certain language on the first page, and if you flip the page, let's say the first pages French and you flip the page. It's not gonna be a Russian. Okay? The entire book is gonna be written in French, and that's the same with these songs. Once you know which language it is in, you can actually play that song really easily. Okay, So these languages, we call them skills, and I'm going to demonstrate a little bit about that in the next lesson. Then we have octaves. Octaves are intervals. Basically. Now, when I did my theory course on you demean, I don't woman on YouTube as well. I talked about intervals and I told all the intervals 1/3 in the second and Harvard, remember? Okay, the reason I don't do that in this course is because basically, when you play the piano that's not really used for it is just being nerdy. And I knew everything about a piano. I know this is an eighth, and I know this is 1/6 and a little of that little. Okay, I really didn't like it, but what its music theory. So put it in the theory course. This, though, is not a theory course. This is the ultimate piano course. It's how to get you playing as quickly as possible. And to me, knowing about half notes and whole tones and intervals is really not beneficial. It's really not going to help you to play any quicker or any better. So it's Nolan. This course are kicked it out. I get to do that. It's my course. I got to do whatever I want. But doctors I kept in there. Andan active is an interval. It's a certain distance between notes on. I'm going to tell you about that later in this section of the course, so I hope you're ready to forget everything. You don't need to know where the piano and just focus on the stuff that's actually really important. In order to do that, we're gonna sort in the next lesson with these skills. 10. Lesson 2.2 Piano Scales, What's The Use?: Hi guys. Welcome to lessen 2.2 skills. What's the use, as already mentioned? A little bit. And the previous lesson in the introduction skills are sort of languages of songs. Okay, songs are written in a certain language. And yes, some of these songs change language later on in the song. They tend to flip a little bit now and then, but in 95% of the cases, all of these songs you hear on the radio are written in one language. Now, fortunately, these languages are made up off notes and not off words. That means you don't have to learn Russian, Chinese, French, all that kind of stuff. All you need to be able to do is recognize the language. Okay, there's 12 languages, and I'm going to be showing all of them to you in the next lesson, which is major skills. And then we have another one after that, which is minor skills. Okay, so I guess it's time to have a look at the piano and CIA. Would skills are on What? The use of them. It's okay. So I want to play something on the piano. Okay. So if I play that you may like it or you may not like it, but it sounds fine. This is a way that you could play something. Okay, Now let me play something else and tell me if it sends noise as well. So I'm going to change it up. They're really didn't sound a noise at all. Why is that? It's because I didn't stick to these skills because I switched to another language halfway , three slung. And I didn't use to correct techniques to do that. I came. So let's have a look at which notes that was playing. Let's disregard the left hand because the same notes is in the right. So I started here, and then I played this. Okay, so we already have these four notes. Okay. I know it's gonna sign annoying when I pressed them all in, but they will light up. Okay, so we started here, and then there. That's these notes. And then I want to hear. Okay, so we have 1234567 We already have seven nodes as I don't want to hear. But as you remember, the G is also here. Okay, So we have g a B, C, D, E and F Sharp and then g again, the's are the notes in this skill in this language as a work. OK, so if we start on this, see where he usually would sort like that, then we get this sounds a little bit weird. That's not that's not really um, let's drop it down. One note now. No, uh, that's it. That sounds normal. That sounds like this. Ah, yes, that's it. OK, that means that this is a G major skill. You don't need to remember that we'll talk a little bit about it in the next lesson. Okay, now what that does is it gives me a template or language or boundary or a restriction or whatever. And it's basically saying, Mark, as long she played this song, you need to stick to thes seven notes. Remember, I was talking about seven notes in the previous lesson. 1234567 As long as I play any of thes seven notes, it's going to be fine. Let's give that a little test. Okay, now, depending on how good Chua with improvising or how good you are as a composer, this is going to sound a little bit weird or a little bit noise, and that has to do with the court's. Okay, We're going to get to that later. Because as languages and courts that you can match civil mismatch, the courts is going to sound a little bit, you know, like, here. How does that may be here as that may be here and there. Okay, so it's a little muscle minerals. Okay? Not that good. However, it's still okay. It's still in the same skill. If I would go out of these skill, you would get this. Pay attention here. That's fine. And I'm gonna get out of the skill. Who? Okay, let's try another one. Okay, this is a little bit weird, but it's okay on that. Maybe here. Oh, okay. That science surrenders. The reason that is is because these two notes on more part of this scale. So what's the use of skills he uses to basically give you a little restriction? Not some people, then, like restrictions. I actually kind of like it. I like to know within which boundaries someone must say at least on the piano, in order to make it sound nights Now, if you go jazz and blues and all that kind of stuff, you want to break those bands, of course. But for the regular songs that pop songs, the rock songs, the songs we hear on the radio, you want to say within these notes. So all of these songs on the radio uses scale. And when you want to announce a skill, you usually say a songs in the key off blah, blah, blah. So it's in a G major skill right here and we want. And that song is written in that scale. Don't we say it's written in the key of G? Okay, just something to remember. You don't have to remember, But Bobby Knights a key gives you the restriction. A scale gives you the restriction. If you jump out of it, is going to sound a little bit, you know, and jasmine and blues. That's different because they do that on purpose. But when you play pop and rock like hear on the radio, you're gonna want to say, within the boundaries of the key or the skill. Okay, so sometimes they jump out of the key a little bit on purpose. But if you want to improvise? I wanna play his song. Then it's a nice to have that restriction to know. OK, as long as I say in these notes, or if you're trying to figure out this song when you play by ear, once you know the key, it's really easy because you know it's gonna have to be one of these notes. So basically gives you some guidance. Is it gives you some restrictions if you want to make sure that it sounds noise. Andi, that's for me. The main use of skills and Keats. Okay, so for now, let's dive into the next lesson, which is 2.3 and is that we're gonna have a look at all the major skills. So we get that out of the way. It's a little bit boring and tedious, but let's just do it. So you get an idea and then in the one after that will do minor skills. And after that, the main theory bullshit is over, and we'll move on with a really nice stuff. Cool. So I advise you to which all of the lessons, anyway, even though it might be a bit tedious security and no all of the major amount of skills that you can skip it, of course, but let's just get over it rather quick. 11. Lesson 2.3 Major Piano Scales: Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen 2.3 of the ultimate piano course. We're gonna do some major skills on this lesson. In fact, we're going to all of them, and then we're gonna move on to minors skills, and then we're gonna get sort of them playing some stuff because I don't want to do too much theory in the course. As you know, I just want to teach you what's necessary, and then we'll move on. So we get 12 skills to gay three. So let's quickly do that, and then we'll move on. Okay? So have a look at the piano we want. I want to start with the C major skill because it's the easiest skill to remember, because all of the notes that are in there are white. Okay, that is the C major skill. Now, I hope you know your notes because we're gonna get through it quite quickly. We have C d E f G A, B and C. OK, It's always good to practice your skills. Something I haven't done nearly enough. Unfortunately on, we're going to be doing that. I'm gonna be showing you how to do that in less than 2.7, but for now is just the theory. Don't have to be able to play all of that. Okay, so C D E F G A B and C 40 c, my dear skill. Now some people like to move up scales, depending on how many black he's there in there. Okay, so the next one would them be G? Because there's only one Blackie in there. And then there's another one with two etcetera, etcetera. You can do that if you want to. You can ride them down and then practice it in that way. But for me, playing wide keys of Blackie's really doesn't matter anything at all. Okay, some people are really stressed. It is that there's so many black keys in this song. I like it because it gives me some grip, you know, if I just play on the whites, Um, for me, it's harder. But if I can play here and then there, you know, at least I have some some grip. You know, I can put my point a finger in between here, so I It's easier for me to play this court than it is this score because there's no grip it all. I have to guess what he notes are basically, if I'm not looking at the piano, whereas here I can stick my finger in and then I can feel this one. So I have a lot of grip. So for me, Blackie's I absolutely love them, probably even more than white anyway. So I'm not going to be building it up to one Blackie to Blackie's three Blackie's because it gives you the impression or the illusion. I said, Oh my God, if this one, it's a living harder than if this nun and then of this, too. It's harder than ever this one, you know, bullshit is just not true. It's fake fake news on dumb. We're gonna be moving from C to D teach after G to A to B to C, and then we'll do the blacks. Okay, so enough rambling C d E f g A b and C for C major. Now let's move to deep and remember the ideas. We have seven notes and we want to make it sound like this. Okay, so if we saw it on D and we move here, that's I was different. Okay, so we want something else? Something like that. That sounds a lot better. So D e f shop G A B c sharp d. Okay, listen. Okay. Is the same kind of sent e Not that's not it. No, no. Ah, a little Middle Eastern thing. But that's no that. So for each life that ok e af shop g shop A b c sharp d shop e Now what I want to show you here is these skills on. You don't have to remember all off them, okay? It doesn't really matter if you know which scale. The song was written per se to me personally, however, it's nice to see the different variations. And now you know that roid here. As you can see, we have four Blackie's and three wides, you know? So if you were playing in the key of e e major, thank you would know that these are dinners you can pick from. Okay, so that's basically all there is to it. That's really want to f and there's zero shops in this one, but there is a flat has a possible Well, basically, if Everly here c d e f g ABC. Well, this new flats or sharps because it's wide notes and we're not counting the e show or the F flat then d E f g a B c sharp d Now the reason this is a shop and not a flat is really simple. Listen to what I'm going to say if it if it was a flat d e g flat g a B d flat d If I say g flat on d flap, there's no f and there's no sea, so that doesn't make any sense. That's why we sharp the sea and the F instead of flooding the G and the D. K. So listen D e f sharp g A B c sharp d So the same with the F right here. If I would make this an A shop that is going to sound like this f g a a sharp see as to AIDS and no beat doesn't make any sense to me. So that's what we're gonna flat that be. Okay. F g a B flat C d e f g a B C d e f shop g for G. Okay. A B C shop d e f sharp G Shop A. Is B c sharp d shop e af shop g shop a shop and be so these are all of these skills starting on a wide note. Now, what I want you to do, let's see, pulls a video for a bit. Start on any of the white notes. Doesn't matter which one. And I want to figure out a sand like this. Okay, so let's say let's pretend I don't know the skilled. I'm gonna sort on the A right here, and I'm just gonna try now. That's not uh No. No, Uh, that's it. Okay, So want to do that to Troy? As long as you have two. Until you hear it's not familiar. Familiar little thing. Okay, You don't have to get a perfect just right around a little bit with every note. I don't see how for you get, and then you're gonna start the video again because we're gonna do these sharps and flats. Okay. Welcome back. I hope you had a go. I hope you did. Okay. If you didn't, that's fine. You'll get it. You'll get a later on because we're gonna play so much stuff. All of these keys are gonna flow into your system. Don't think about it too much. You don't have to overthink it. It's a little gonna be fine. We're just in Chapter two. We get seven more to go. Okay, so now we have the sea shop, the DIY shop after shop G show open a shop, or is it d flat? E flat, G flat a flat B flat, You tell me. Well, actually, doesn't matter which one you pick, because these skills are going to be the same. Okay, this is one of these things where it has two names again, but basically is the same thing. Now, what is important to understand is that if you pick a c sharp, all of the other notes are gonna be called sharp. Of course. And if you pick a D flat than all of the other notes are going to be called flat so you can not have a D flat scale with an f sharp in there, there will be a g flat. Okay, We're going to see that in a bit. Let me run through them. And that we have done all of the major skills. I want to thank you for your patience. I know it's a lot, but I want to show you at least all of them for the people who want to learn that on def. You do. That's absolutely fine. It's always good to learn some stuff if you don't. This is just a little thing to sit through. You can have some popcorn or whatever. Andi will be out of away in a little bit. So he always thought already. C sharp d shop half f shop. That's weird. Okay, I didn't like that. And it's not true as well because, as you remember from the previous section, hopefully I hope you which that this can also be an e shop. And then it makes sense. C sharp d shop e shop after shop G shop a shop and then all the be wrong here. See? See? Shop. That also doesn't make any sense. Okay, That couldn't be seeing there. And there isn't. It's actually a B shop. Okay, says seven Sharps in this one c sharp d sharp be sharp, f sharp, g sharp, a sharp, be sharp and see shop qualities to remember Now we could also do flats, and if we do flats is gonna be different story D flat E flat F said neither is enough Deflate Deflate F g flat a flat B flat, C d flat. Okay, so you notice how these can change. We have five flats on with the other one. We have seven shops. So changes a little bit. Okay? The reason is we're playing these two nights right here on when you play flats the's on flats. These are regular. Let's let's do let's do DIY shop. Okay, now, this one is a little bit tricky. D shop e shop g. Now, that's no possible. You cannot have g in there because we skip the f so d shop e shop and now have double sharp . OK, it's a bit of a cheat, but you moved from after f sharp and then half a node up. Tiu this one which we usually called G. But it's an at double sharp. So de shop e shop f sharp. Sharp. If you will g shop a shop, be shop, see double sharp case. We do the same kind of little trick right there on Thandie shop. Okay, but you don't have to remember all of these names. Just remember that it goes like this. Okay, so, of course is the same for E flat. Same notes, But then it's gonna be e flat. F g a flat, B flat, C d e flat. So a lot more boring, but a lot easier, if you will. Okay, then. F sharp. Okay, we good. F sharp. G shop a shop, be C sharp D shop e shop and the shop. I'm going to get through the little bit quick. And they're because one old and for the flats, we have the same G flat. A flat B flat. Now. Here. Okay, this is a C flat. Okay, there's an on the B. It's a C flat D flat, a flat on. Now. Here we have an F onto G flat. Okay, Uh, them for G shop right here. G shop a shop. Be shop. See shop D shop e shop. Have double sharp and G shop. Okay. Or a flat B flat, C D flat, e flat, F g a flat. Okay. And then the final one. A shop right here. A shop. Be shop. See double shop d shop the shop have double sharp g double sharp on a shop. See why don't like music theory that much with the double sharps and all the stuff. I really don't like it. I just want to know that I can actually start on all of these notes and make this sound okay. Like it's the same kind of signed. That's the main important thing to remember from this. Okay, so you can now also practice on the blacks now, did you know all of them on? Basically, just pick any note, close your eyes. Go like this. This'll one. Okay, Cool. And they have to do that. And if you got a right cool, if you didn't get a right just right again with the same key until you get it. Okay, So do a couple like 34 or five and then move on to the minor skills in less and cheap 50.4 . 12. Lesson 2.4 Minor Piano Scales: I goes. I hope I didn't bore you to death in the previous lesson. This is 2.4. We're going to go through quite a lot quicker. And this one, I'll promise you. But just good to have a look at all of these skills once. So you know that they're out there and you can actually use them. When when they come up Now, I never name it. I'm not gonna say like are today. We're gonna play a song, and it's in the key of B flat or whatever and then expect you to new it. I just wanted to show you all the different variations and gift you d notation on the notice. Well, safer nadie minor skills. While basically all of the motor skills are the same. It's just a different way of naming them and you stored on a different note. So the sound is not gonna be like this. What is going to be like this, which is a really weird kind of sound, but I just wanted to show you the minor skills in case you're interested in that. Okay, So what's important to remember Is that a minor skills? Exactly the same as a major skill, Not not a major on the letter, but a major skill. That's a major skill that's corresponding to that modern scale that brothers or sisters or twins or whatever. Whatever way you want to call it. For instance, this scale uses the same notes as this skill. Okay, all whites see, now one of them is called a C major skill that one and the other one is called on a monusco , and it's basically the same kind of thing when you're playing it. But right here, you saw it on on a and set off on a C. OK, so all of these skills have brothers and sisters. And how do you find the brother or sister? It's really easy. If you're on a major scale, you want to go to the grand note? What is the grand note? If you wanna see major skill, you undergo TDC. If you're not a sharp major skill, you're going to go to a shop. If you're non e flat major skill, you're gonna go to e flat and then what you're gonna do is you're going to go three. You're half tones. Then how do you go 1/2 tone down. I haven't told you that at all yet because it's so easy. Okay, how do you go? Half turned down 1/2 tone is simply one step to the left on the piano. Okay, cause this would be a whole turn on. This is 1/2 turn. So let's say we want to find the corresponding scale to E flat Major, we're going to go down 1/2 tune another half tune on another half turn eso 3/2 tons. OK, so d flat major skill right here. And the corresponding Mona scale for C mourner right here. Okay. It's got all of these same notes in there, but we start on these C instead of a flat. Okay, so here's the rule. You pick your major skill, you move dying 3/2 notes. So if you saw it on a you move down 123 and you end up there. Okay, You move down 3/2 notes to go for a major to minor, but the notes will stay the same. All of the notes are going to be saying the same. They might have a different name with the physical notes. Are going to be the same. So demonstrating again brought here from C team owner. All of them are whites. Okay, Wide, wide, wide, wide. Right. So they're the same notes the same seven. It's so my challenge to you is to find all of the corresponding minus skills to D major skills. Okay, so you played a major skill, so I'm going to show you one more example. Okay. For D major, you played the major skill. And you now know that all of these notes have to be in there. D the f sharp G a B C shop on D. Okay, you're gonna do the switch. So you gave from Major to minor. Want to three down? Okay, 90 notes are going to be the same. So have to play the same notes. Remember? C sharp D. Okay, so something like that. Okay, it sounds weird. So must be right. So instead of playing d e f sharp g a B c sharp d who played his same names, but we saw it on B c sharp d e after the g A beat. So I want you to find the corresponding now. If you found a minor key and you want to go up. Two major, Of course we have to do is reverse the process. So instead of going from a C 3 3/2 notes down 123 if we saw it on a and we want to get up to major way go 12 3/2 notes up boom and read a major. Okay, what's important again for you? Jonas Centeno said it before. But here we go again, a major and a minor scale that our brothers and sisters twins. Or have you want to call the best friends? Half the same notes in them. The notes are the same. Seven roids, seven words exactly the same. Weitz Okay for D Major and B minor. The same notes. Okay, we have a C shop and enough shop in. All of the other ones are white, so that's always going to be the same. That's really important feature on the sand. And then, for now, it's time to forget all of this stuff and move into the octaves, so I hope you'll join me in less than 2.5. This was enough boring theory, and I'm going to show you some octaves, which is technically also fury. But we're going to do the Livermore side, see, there 13. Lesson 2.5 Play Piano Octaves: I always working to lessen 2.5. This is where we're gonna sort on octaves. Octaves for this course are very, very, very, very, very, very important. You're gonna be playing so many actives that if you don't know what a knocked of his right now, But in time you have the end of the course. And if you're ever gonna do to getting off on active, of course. Okay, you're gonna be playing so many artists. I I guarantee you, by the time you finish this course, you will have played at least 10,000 doctors. Can you believe that? 10,000. It's gonna be true. Trust me. So what is an octave? Octave is two things on Octave is simply a distance between two notes. Remember when I was talking about the intervals while basically an eighth is an active? Forget it. I don't have to remember that. That's all bullshit. For me, it's very easy. A knocked of simply means playing two of the same notes at the same time. So you play a low C and a high C, and then you have your distance often active. That's not now the way I play octaves is. I like to play them because this is the same note, and when you play them double, you get a little bit more out of it than when you just play that low one or the high one. Also up here, you get a bit more strength, a bit more emphasis, if you will. So that's how I mainly use them. So the octave there's of course, 12 as well, because we have 12 notes and I'm gonna ask you to name all of them. But let's just play a couple. And usually I play the doctors in the left hand when I'm Francis playing chords in the right. Okay, I'm playing octaves in the left hand. Now sometimes when I want to emphasize something in the right, I might play knocked of there so we can use it everywhere. Cool. Let's start with Lefton. So let's play. See Octave basically play to seize and then a deok tive on e active have active G active A or two B o onda siac. Okay, if you wonder how you spell active, you can see that in the in. The lesson description is somewhat because apparently, me being from the Netherlands I say the wrong way. I don't know. I cannot hear it active, I think I think as they'd find Octo. But anyway, it's o C t a v e October active octo ah are active. Knocked off, we say. Oh, kdaf game engine. So C d E f g A B c. Now pick it up with Right, So right here C e f g a B c. Now we can also do it on the Black Keys. It's actually easier because you have this little you can grip it. Okay. And then right here on that might be nice to get back us. Well, so sorry. Uh, on there, if you having trouble to reach or to stretch when we're gonna practice the octaves in less than 2.8, I'm gonna give you some tips. Okay? For now is just for you to know what and activists thing is the distance between two notes . Okay, so when we play them together, I call that a knocked If you play knocked if you play see active playing that shot blocked play a d flat doctor, you playing? I talked. Okay, then the next lesson I want to talk about octaves again, but I'm going to demonstrate something else. I'm not a use for it. Okay, so let's jump into lesson 2.6. And then after that, we're gonna be practicing or skills and practicing the octaves. And I'm going to give you a little test and listen to poor nine to see if you remembered all this stuff you need to remember. Cool. Let's do it. 14. Lesson 2.6 Jump Piano Octaves: I goes Welcome to lessen six octaves to jump. Now, that can mean two things. That could mean jumping with doctors like that, etcetera doesn't really matter. But that's not what I'm talking about right here. What I mean is, when you jump are productive for you jumped down and walked. Okay, So how does that work? Well, let's say you play something like this. If you want to jump up and active, it means you're Roy Hand. It's not gonna play it here, But you're gonna play it here. OK? So which are actually playing thes? Same thing. But now you played an octave higher. So that's what I mean. Want to say jump up a knocked if you're gonna play the same thing, but you're gonna play it unlocked of higher Now, you can also drop a knocked. If if you were playing here, you can drop down on play there for the left hand as well. Let's say we're playing this. We can come a productive and you don't have to be playing octaves in order to jump up on October car down. If I was playing this, um, let's say here on I wanted to go down an octave. I simply played the same thing, but I drop it A knocked it. Okay, so sometimes you do this when you play a song, let's say right here and then you want to drop it later on, It goes here. Okay. And get some maybe more warm. This might be a little bit more cold. Okay? So you can drop it, adoptive, or you can bomb but are productive if you want to go that way. So that's jumping. Achter Zehr going up and down an octave on the piano For now, I want to move on. See lesson 2.7 to start practicing or skills and then a lesson 2.8. We're gonna practice the hands a little bit for the octaves and then you'll be ready for the test. A lesson. Two point. So take a little break, have some water against you to toilet if you need to. I definitely need to because I've been recording for a very long time. I'm going to see you in a lesson. 2.7 15. Lesson 2.7 Piano Scale Practice: Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen 2.7 off the ultimate piano course. Right now, I want to show you how to practice your scales, and it's actually quite easy, but there's a lot of work to be done if you want to get very fluent at it. As I mentioned before, I haven't done a lot of practicing on my scales myself on I'm a little bit story for it because I'm not that flew in in the skills. And I hope you are actually gonna be, because if you want to improvise and if you want to do some fun stuff with the skills that you sometimes see on the piano, you know when you see somebody like running their hand up in the liberal look coming back it up. That's basically when they're playing skills that does two things that come to practising skills. There's just running a pin and a piano, but there's also getting used to playing in a certain scale. So I want to tell you all about that in this video. So let's have a look at the piano right here, and I want to sort of with the sea my dear scale which hopefully still remember. Okay, Let a two things to practice our high to play skill getting up and down and the other thing to practices. How to play a scale as in playing in a song, right? The main difference here is that this is just a theoretical little thing and it's cool if you're playing in a scene that you're speaking a little bit of what you can get up in them . Okay, however, playing a skill in a song with that I mean basically not missing the wrong notes. As we already notice only seven notes to be played in most of these songs on Basically, let's say we are the G major skill right here. Okay, that means we can only play this black note. Have sharp issue. Remember on these wide notes right here. Okay, so when you're playing that song, you don't want to hit any of the other notes, and basically it's like preset in your hands to that skill. Therefore, it's always good to change skills and while people say, Oh, I usually transpose my songs because what you can dio and also trying to do that later is you can take a song with with a little difficult quartz, which basically is just course with black notes in them. Some people find them difficult on the ultras. Posen to white. So what that does is lets say we have a song that's being played like this. Okay, then what they would do is that's all that's too many black nice here. So we're gonna drop it. Basically played the same thing, but not played a little bit lower. Okay? And what that does your only plain white keys. Now, I really do not advise all this because what a results in is you only being able to play on White Keys and I want you to practice your skills, not just running up in Anna pianos. Most teachers of vice you. I also want you to specifically practice with different type of songs. Okay, so if there's any lesson, let's say you go to PMP. Another call me. Have the look of the the specific lessons that I've got up right there. If there's any listeners say, are we're gonna have six flats in this lesson. Don't be scared. Just try that because it will actually teach you to play in different skills as well. Okay or in different keys, As we might say. So it's skill is something on the piano Key is what key this song is in. It's basically the same kind of thing. Okay, so, for instance, if a song would be an E major, it would have more black notes in there than if differences and C major. So one advice you to practice songs in different skills on especially the easy lessons or something that's really great to do that. So if you have a look at P. Jem piano that come for any of the easy lessons, you can simply search easy right there under all pop up, try and figure out different songs. Also switch between flats and sharps. I know doesn't really matter on the piano whether you play an F sharp or a G flat, which is the same note, but it will get you used to thinking, you know, in Sharps and flats on hard. It'll system works because that's kind of a little bit of a difference right there. Some people are really used to playing flats, and I want to have a somewhere that plays sharps. They get really confused because Theo G. Flat, which they usually play, would not be an f sharp. So they're having trouble to find that so one of the voices to do that there was unhappy practice your skills basically, whilst playing this song basically pretzel type of different songs on Do That, both in the left hand and in the right hand. That's really cool stuff you can do. So make sure to check out a couple of these specific song lessons that I've got on PJM, Punal, com or even on YouTube. Com slash pg and piano. And we'll sort that act now as to the part on the piano which everybody is talking about, how to practice your skills basically all you have to dio it's wrong up and then they case it from here. Um, back. OK, nice. The way to do that with this skill is but playing a thumb point a finger, middle finger and then to pivot below because you're gonna anally pinky. In case if you have your fly fingers right here, you won't have your thumb on this key. So, like that. Okay? Thumb pointer, Middle pivot below thumb, pointer, middle ring and pinky. Okay, then go back. Pinky ring middle points her thumb, not pivot over. May toe points here, some of your back. If you want to continue, don't and only Pinkie, because you're gonna get stuck. Now you need your thumb here against you can do the same thing right there. So here what you do, she's sup on the ring and then pivot on any of the film. When you go back, pivot your ring. I think I like that. Okay, so let's have a practice of that. We'll do it once until here and go back on. Then we'll get all the way here and go back very slowly. Okay? Now, let's go all the way here, All the way up until there. Okay. So you can practice that for a right. But you also want to practice it a left. Okay, that's gonna be a little different, because you're going to start on that pinky on the way. I like to do that. It's like this say, pinky. So basically, the way you do going back right here, you do from the left side. So pinkie ring, middle pointer. Thumb pivot over on. Go back down. 90 trick here is to go slow. Go slow. I'm Parex. Is that speed will come Lay there. Okay. Theun swept to another skills, so maybe G do the same thing. Okay, You can do it anywhere you want right here. If you don't like that, you could also do like this. That's up to you. I'm not very strict on how you place your fingers myself because my goal isn't to become a concert pianist. My goal is to be able to play songs that I actually like to play on parties when I'm having fun with them in the train station and we got a piano right there on that doesn't mean that I don't wanna have a good technique, but it does mean that you have to be reasonable on if you want to have perfect finger placement, allow the time. First of all, what I like doesn't necessarily mean that you like it. On second of all, you're not gonna notice the difference because you can actually play your own stall unless you would want to become a concert pianist and earlier money, like in concert halls, like, you know, like the big the big ones, like this Sydney A prize and stuff like that, then it might be very important for you to get the finger placement exactly right. If your goal, though, isn't to do that. And you simply want to have fun and play. Even if you would want to become a professional piano player in a bar or in a hotel, you don't need to have perfect finger placement. Okay, if you can play the stuff you want to play the way you like it, I'm absolutely fine with that. I've never had any problem with my finger placement. I know it's not always like conventional, like who hang off to play according to the official rules finger placement. But then also, my fingers are quite short, so sometimes I cheat a little bit here and there. For me, the most important thing is that it sounds good, but I'm playing. I don't really care how it looks with my fingers on the piano, but that's a choice you will have to make. Okay, so basically you can practice up and down. You could practice down and up. You could practice up and down and down and up with roid and left. Okay, And then you can also try different things. Like breaking it up. Something like that. Okay, so try different ways to do that. Okay? There's different ways to do that. Both left and right, and then also want you to practice something else, which I haven't really seen A lot. I want you to know, always thought on the grand nerd or in the tonic. Okay, if we do to see my just skill, you would usually soul in the sea. But I want you to start here. Okay? 41 nights only, the C major skills. That doesn't really matter. Okay, Because because this is always gonna be the same what you saw here, that's gonna feel the same. However, when he put black notes in there. So it is going to change, because if you were used to playing it like this, that is really gonna change where you saw it here. You know, you're gonna notice like, Oh, whoopsie. Okay. So that's why I want to do practice also to sort on different notes in that skill. If you want to practice your skills a lot, that's something very useful to do because you're not always going away. You want to do this little scale wrong? You're not always going to sort on the ground Nature. You're actually gonna sort of auto notice? Well known van. Therefore, it's very important to do that. It will also really help you to get all of these different keys that 12 different keys, the 12 different skills in your system instead of just always starting on the nerd. You will be able to recognize the keys a lot quicker because you simply know which notes are gonna be in that key. So you don't necessarily have to start on a certain where do you get So I hope that makes sense to you. If you have any questions about the skills, let me know already help bottom here on the website. But for now, I want to move on to lesson 2.8 octave correct 16. Lesson 2.8 Piano Octave Practice: hi. Going starting to lessen to pollinate practicing directives. Now, as with the previous lesson, there's two parts here that I want to teach you. So, first of all, I want you to Teoh get really used to playing octaves. Andi, even jumping Iraq turns around. And the other thing I wanna teach you right here is to recognize octopus. Okay, So if you're playing in a rod here, then I want you to be very able to jump up to the next jump up to the next jump to the next . OK, so we're gonna practice that a little bit first before I'm gonna explain you how to jump your hands. So I'm gonna give you a couple of examples, and then I want you to do this by yourself by simply closing your eyes and finding in note while being blind whilst whilst holding your hand before your eyes awas having your eyes closed to get a random notes I'm gonna solve right now. I'm just gonna like Okay, what was that? Be okay. So now I have to first of all, jumped down as then jump all the way up to all of the bees. Okay, I can do this with my left hand. I could do with my right and so I can place my eyes. And what do we have? A deep. So I have to go up. Okay. I want you to get up first. Danny, you can go back up if you want. Okay? It doesn't really matter if he had, you know, precisely with your finger. Or if you cross it a little bit like that, that's possible. Okay. But I want you to do, though, is to train your eyes to recognize thes notes everywhere and jumping octaves like that. They were gonna do things all right here. See? Right there. But I forgot a couple. That's one right here. But you cannot see down the camera because the camera only reaches until they're on. Then there's another one right here. And that's off camera as well. So you probably find eight Season your piano. One g 34567 eight If you have a piano with 88 keys, so make sure to find alof that I want to do another one. I've got a left. So I'm gonna go up, go down, and I could go back up like that. A case of practice that maybe like, two or three minutes a day disclosure. Rise ahead a random note and see if you can easily, with both hands, find all of the corresponding notes on the piano. That's one that's practicing how to literally jumper knocked off like I explained to you in a couple lessons again. Now the other things ahead of it, less easy. You're gonna have to practice, actually play these objects. Okay, So what I want to do for that is you can simply practice your skills while student using Octopussy can go do that. You could do with right. You can practice, but playing a nice pattern, which you might have learned in one of the easy lessons on the PJM piano. But come see, active doctor. A active abduct. Okay, No woman, no cry by Bob Marley and so many of us. Okay, you could do that. You can do that. The roid and a swell. Or you can practice both hands at the same time right here. Now, I also wanted to practice Click The Octopus to fling, And basically, So you get instead of playing this, you're gonna get that. Okay, the bottom one is just a quick at any Topol. Okay, you can do like that. Okay. Like that, You can go down, That's all. Okay. Said that might look like this. Okay, something like that. I'm You can also go back down whilst came from the booth, etcetera, etcetera, And you can go from this side, which is a lot harder to to trust me. That's another thing you can do use trying to jump doctors like that. I'm continuing. All right, here. Okay. Right there. So you can do that. You can jump down and you can jump up. These are all kind of things that you can do. The best way for you to practice your left hand is to play any of the easy lessons that I got on the website that I got on the other website or in Eugene. Okay, because it's a fun way to play. You're gonna have to do that. And later on, we're gonna be seeing that when we played courts that these doctors in the left and are very important in the right and sometimes shoot. I think sometimes you play little melody line with a full activity. Emphasize it a little bit. Okay, so it's nice if you can play that right hand with octaves as well. But usually the Roy I'm going to be that quick on the left hand. Later on, we're going to connect to the court. So you play a C chord. Your left hand is gonna be on the sea where you play a G chord. It will be on the G way play d f sharp. A being minor doesn't matter which court you play. That left hand is gonna jump to the correct position. That's what we're going for any next two segments of this course. So very much looking forward to that for now. Want to invite you to have a look at any of these easy lessons that I got a new tube or on the website and practice that a little bit because it's more fun of your practice. Was playing songs then just to do this practicing stuff. I really don't like that that much to be honest. Okay. So make sure to practice that you can practice running your skills with doctors, but what I would definitely advise you to do every day before you play, close your eyes. Pick a random note like this one, and they simply find a with ease notes on the piano quickly, as quickly as possible. Until you think that you've had all 12 notes. Okay, and then move on with your plane because it's good if you do that a couple of weeks to start recognizing exactly where these notes are located on the piano. For now, I want to thank you so much for watching. Let's have look good Lesson 2.9, where I'm going to test you on the skills that you've learned in this section. 17. 3.1 Introduction to Chords Mastery: hi and welcome to Section three courts. Now, this is the most important section off the entire ultimate piano course. At least if you don't watch this, it's gonna be very difficult to which the rest of the course I want advise you, pay attention. Watch all of the lessons in this section, even if you already know a lot of courts. This is a very, very important section, Teoh. So again, this is not a theory course. This is the ultimate piano cause, the course in which I'm going to teach you. How did you play the piano in an easy and quick Web, but also had to progress really quick and courts are going to help you so much with that Now, having said that, this action is mainly going to be a theory bit because it's just important for you to get all of these courts under your belt. And then in the next section number four playing chords, we're going to actually put all of this knowledge to use. Okay, so sit through this one. I've put the most important courts for you to learn in the first couple of lessons. And then there's a couple of bonus lessons later on. If you find that interesting onto do yourselves to yourselves for in your augmented enders and diminished court, Okay, but basically, these courts are gonna be really important. So let me tell you a little thing about courts. Courts are basically a combination of keys, so you might have three, four keys together. Okay, on is just a combination. Now, you don't always have to play them as a combination, but we'll see that later on as well. Okay. What is important for you to understand is that courts are basically ingredients. I like to use them as ingredients. And if you're going to bake a cake, it might be very difficult if you just go into the supermarket. You've never baked a cake before. And your mom or your dad or your grandma asks you Hey, honey, why did you bake a little cake for me? Going to supermarket and get some stuff and you come back with a salami and afternoon smacks. You probably heard kind of make such a nice cake. Even though Islamic eight could be cool Anyway, courts are basically the ingredients on, Just as in the previous section where we have these skills or the keys in which a song is being played. The courts are not so much providing structure by themselves. One courtroom provide you with a little structure. But as we will see later on, corporate Grecians provide a very good structure to you. And once you know which courts are being used in a song that will actually give you a lot of structure as well, it will make it easier to play the piano. It will make it easier to find your way around the piano. They were actually start to see all of these courts just basically like watching the Code of the Matrix. I don't know if you have seen that movie, but it was all green letters. And people who watched that for a very long time could actually see this stuff that was happening instead of the letters. And that's the same kind of thing we're gonna be doing on the piano. So let me quickly show you what I mean. So maybe I will be playing a song like this right on. The reason that it's very easy for me to play something like that is because I know the four chords that I just played on. I know which order they are and never keep him playing them. You can hear that it's part of a song, okay, so I can keep him playing these courts. And we called that a core progression on. I'll be teaching you would. That is exactly later on. But basically, if I know these four chords to four ingredients of evil for these song, then I'll be able to play that song rather easily. I don't know if you ever sat next to a guitarists or people like it never can fire or whatever on one of them wanted to seeing, and the other one wanted to play on the guitar. And I'm like, Oh, if you just play Ah G B Minor A and F Then we got that song. And if you're wondering, what are these guys talking about? While these were basically cords, it's a couple of ingredients for the larger place. So now let's have a look at the piano. It's as I said, there's a combination of notes and you could play wide notes. You could play award in a black node. You can play a couple of black knows there's so money variations out there. Okay, but basically it's a combination of notes. You don't have to play them at the same time. You could play Petr as we will see later on in unless off in section four, where I'm going to teach you how to play with cords. But basically, yeah, it's a combination of and we have a couple of families again for earthy quartz. So they're also we're going to do in this section are gonna be major courts, minor courts, major seven courts, minus seven courts. We're gonna be doing five courts, so it's not five courts now. It's actually five courts. They belong together. Five. Court. I'm going to tell you a little bit about what I call slash courts and then in the bonus sexually good augmented, diminished sustenance. Us four. And there's also going to be times is split up courts, which is very cool, especially if you do that with the left and the right hand working together and inversions . Inversions are gonna be so important for the ultimate piano cores, and it's something some people are confused about. So we're going to do that inversions a lesson 3.4, but for now, but for now would like to move on to less than 3.2. But not before tell you this again. This is a bit of theory, but we're gonna put that to practice in the next section. OK, so this is really important if you want to skip through this, which are really, really, really don't invites. But if you want to skip through, it is you have to at least watch major courts of minor chords. The inversion should have to watch that afterwards, splitting courts and slash courts. Okay, so basically less than 3.23 point 33.4, you have to which them 3.8 and 3.9. Okay. The other ones are also very, very useful. But if you want to, skipper had it to playing songs. Please do me a favor and at least words that because little ways you're going to end up in section for good luck. What is that on? I basically was explaining it in this section. Okay, so lesson 3.2 major courts. Here we go. 18. 3.2 Major Piano Chords: Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen three point to you if this lesson I'm going to teach you all of the major courts. So if we would divide the courts into courts, families like major, minor, major seven minus seven or G men, that's us to six courts. Five chords at nine quartz, all these type of courts. But there would always have 12 course per family, because again, there's 123456789 10 11 12 notes. Okay, Now we're going to play a chord. We're going to put the name of the court on the thumb. Okay, for this lesson on that note is going to be on the bottom, okay, cause we're gonna be playing with the right hand. So on the bottom of the piano, already left of the piano. That's why the name of the court is going to be now. What do I mean with that? What I mean is, if I say, see Major than the name of the court is C C major. So you have to prove that, See, on the bottom or on the left of the piano. And if you play with the right hand that's gonna be your thumb. Okay, so, C major, we would sort on a seat half sharp, major. It's enough sharp. So we saw on the F sharp. OK, G major sought on the G B flat major sort on B flat. Doesn't matter which court during these lessons in this section. Acceptable say otherwise, we're going to start on the name off the court. Basically, you could call that d tonic. So if we have a C major court, if you tonic would be this seat. If you have an F sharp major court feed tonic would be the F shop. Okay, so half the atomic or your thumb. So let's practice that a little bit of C major. We would have the sea on the thumb F sharp major have sharp on the thumb e flat major E fly only thumb after major. There we go. Be major Andi, Let's do a flat major right here. Okay, now 40 major chords as three notes per court. So just playing one note is not going to cut it. We have to add two more, but luckily it has a little trick you can use to figure them at. That's why it's important to sort on the tonic with your thumb. Okay, so for major courses, a nice little trick. I'm gonna play this court with my other hand said, Don't be mad. I'm playing the sea right here. Want to find C major? And if I want to find a major chord, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna put three notes in between. So 123 and then I'm gonna play that next note. Roy there, okay, s and I've already find two notes out of the three, as you can clearly see those three notes in between right here. Okay. So we could certainly see with three notes in between on our found the second. Now, if I want to find the third note for major chords only, I'm gonna put another two notes in between and then play the one after that. Okay? It's a roid here of good C major. As you can clearly see, I'm going to re grip. Uh, that's 123 notes in between, Anthony to that, this will always apply to all major chords as longer. Should play the tonic on the bottom of the court. Okay, so if I if I want to play a C major court and I happen to know there's a G in there and I'm starting to play them on a go. 12312 I'm not ending up with the c major, but on broader ending up with a G major. Okay, so whichever no, just saw it on doesn't matter. But that's the court you're going to get. If I want to start on an E flat, that's cool. I'm gonna count 3123 in between. So don't play this one or that one or that one. This is the one I have to play. I counted noted to, and that is the one I have to play on. I will get e flat e flat major. Okay, now, when you play according to such a position, when you play quarters such a position with the name of the court or the tonic on the bottom. We call that route position because it's in the position of the root, the root of the court, which is the name off that court and came rude position right here. Why? Because the name of the quarters at the bottom Okay, We're gonna find out later in less than 3.4 in inversions. Why, that is really important to distinguish. Okay, But since I've now explained to you how we're going to play these courts, it doesn't just apply to this lesson. It will apply to the next one. It will apply to less than 3.53 point 63.7. And to all of the bonus lessons, because for all of these courts, we're going to be playing them in reposition because that is how you can use this little trick to find them. So now that you know the little trick for major courts, I hope you remember Three in between and two in between. We're gonna find all the major courts starting with a C major. Okay, so right here. 123 in between 12 In between. We could see Major right here. Now let's find D major so we can simply scoop over that. Sounds a little wit. Why is that weird? Let's figure out if I got a right. I was playing this isn't that I've got one too. Oh, I don't have three in between. Okay, So already screwed up right there. So from C Major, you cannot simply move to the right and play a D major. Because this is not a D major court. The little world doesn't apply. There's not three in between event too. Okay, so I have to sort ever t 123 I have to go there to f Sharp and then one to in between. Here we go. De made a cases. See, Major d major, I'm gonna do e major, and then I want you to figure out f made your yourself. Okay, e major. Right here. Look. Three in between. And then to now what I want to do is to find f major. So play DF go up three notes and play the one after that and then another two nodes and played the one after that. Okay, I hope you find it. So three notes upper than the note after that will be this one. And then two notes up in the note after that will be this one. Okay. Lets the G major three in between and then to a major 123 in between and then to be major 123 in between and then to the wood ones right here. And then we're back to see Major. Okay, so let's play all of them once. See d e f g a Be on. See? Okay, let me do that a little bit slower for you in case you were trying to play along. So let's go slow. I see. And I play d and now e oh, G A on dboey. Now let's go up to the Black Knights and this is a little bit interesting because as you hatefully remember, we've got two names for all of the black notes. We could this see shop, which is also the D flat. We've got a shop which is also be flat now, luckily, luckily, luckily, luckily for the course, this doesn't matter. Okay, so a C sharp major will also be a D flat major. It's exactly the same court. Okay, so let's again go over these notes, see shop and D flat de sharpened e flat, af sharper and G flat G sharp and a flat, A sharp and B flat. So now the same rule applies fortunately, because to every major court this rule apply, but three between platoon between a You get the court so I could simply play. See shop 123 between. Played the next note on 12 In between. Play the next note right here. Okay, C sharp Major or D flat Major, that is the same court. Okay, then it would be d flat after and a flat. Okay, See shop. We've got C shop. The shop on G shop now D shop 123 In between. Play the note 12 in between. On play the note which is D shop of Double Sharp Asia. Okay, Or it could be flat E flat G beef lines. OK, and then for of shop have shot Major right here. Have shop a shop. See shop Look three in between and two in between again. This could also be g flat major right here. A flat major or G sharp major. 123 In between worn tune between on the last one. A shop or B flat major 123 and 12 So let's go over them one more time. The very last time before moving on to the minor chords and less than 3.3. So here we go C major de e g a and be and then C sharp d shop after shop G shop on a shop or D flat, e flat, G flat, a flat and B flat major. These were all of the major courts. And I'm going to do my best to put all of these courts into one nice combination here on the website. It will be on ultimate piano course dot com slash court chart. Make sure to check that out of the link isn't working yet. I've got a lot to do for this court, so sometimes I forget little things like that. So make sure to send me an email. Will. Probably by the time you're witching, this ultimate piano Corsair come slash court chart. It will be up right there. Okay, so for now, let's had on to lesson 3.3 minor courts 19. 3.3 Minor Piano Chords: Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen 3.3. I hope you enjoyed the previous lesson. Where we're learning the major courts is this lesson. I'm going to teach you how to play all of the minor courts. Remember, from the previous lesson, there's gonna b 12 cords because there's 12 notes on the piano. And again, all of these courts are gonna have the same kind of lay out the same kind of little trick in order to fund these cords. As long as we play them in route position, which ask you hopefully remember, it's with that tonic note at the bottom off the piano. OK, so if you've got no idea what I'm talking about, please have a look at the previous lesson to make sure you get all of that in. And now we're gonna be doing the minor courts. I want to go through this rather quickly because of want to get you onto section four actually going to be starting to play the piano because that's the fun stuff. This is just a little, you know, little knowledge that unfortunately, it's required for you to do the arrest. But let's get through this as soon as possible. So I want to play the minor courts now. For the major courts, we had the pattern three in between. Advantage in between for minor. We're going to reverse that. It's gonna be doing between on three in between. And as you can hear already, the monarch courts are a little bit less joyous. Let's say this one is quite hopeful. Joy. You know, this one is a little bit more sad, Onda. We get that with minor courts now and then. Okay. So basically, we want to sort on the name of the court again on the tonic on countdown to Nodes and then play the next one. So we have these two and then three notes and play the next one seven right here. Okay. C minor. Have a good also do that for D, and it will be here soon. I play all white nights for D two in between and then three e to in between on three f. That sounds quite hopeful. Arm. Let's see. 12312 whips. I made a little mistake. Boarded the dude on purpose right here. That's the F minor Court two and then three. Okay, Gee, Mona. Right here. Two and three in between as then. Note that so joyful. Here we go to in between and three. Okay, Finally be minor. Tune between on three. So let's do them slowly and play along with me C minor d minor e minor minor g minor A mourner on and be morning. Okay, now, of course, we also have them. 40 Blackie's see shop slash D flat, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. So let's do the Sharps C sharp minor league tune between on three in between D sharp minor tune between on 123 in between have short minor to in between and three in between. Judicial monitor, Tune between on three in between and right here. A sharp minor tune between on three in between What? We could have a D flat, minor e flat, minor G flat mourner, A flood mourner on a B flat minor. Okay, so let's one more time run through all of these courts and that we're going to continue on with less than 3.4 words going to get very interesting with the inversions. I'm sure you're gonna want to see that, because that is that is gonna be so good. Here we go. So let's see Black awards through each other and go very slow so you can play along with me and actually do that. Okay? Play along with me Right here. C minor C sharp, Minor. Uh, de mine D sharp. Minor E mon. Ask Minor. Here we g o have sharp minor G Mourner, G sharp minor, A mourner Asia Minor and B Minor. And we're back to see moderate. So these were all of the minor courts. Now we're gonna have a look at inversions on. That's very important. So make sure to which the next lesson less than 3.4 to learn all about inversions. 20. 3.4 Piano Inversions: Hi, guys. Welcome to less than 3.4 of the ultimate piano course. Right now I'm gonna teach you all about inversions. And this this is so good as this is just really important When I wanna composed songs when you wanna play by ear If you want to reach ive music and use a combination of court and the sheet music when you want to learn how I actually learn a new song every single day way in trying to figure out why my court slides above the piano that I have on YouTube or mpg in piano dot com Don't always match with what I'm playing on the piano. This'd is why this is inversions. OK, very important. Remember, how has said in less than 3.2 things is the root position of a court with the tonic at the bottom. And I'm Eva wondering whom. Why do we have to put up note there? And what happens if I don't? What happens if I may be played G c e instead of C G? Would it still be a c major court where the court change, or is it just a different way of playing that same court? Well, actually, fortunately, it's very easy to you Explain. Basically, Accord consists out of three notes in this case, a major. And we only care about which notes are in there. OK, so where us with the recipe? Sometimes you have to put in the border first and thunder, sugar or whatever. This is more like a cocktail drink. Basically, if you get a little bit of lime, a little bit of meant and a little bit of rum, you're going to get your here. Okay. Doesn't matter if you put the lime in first, and then the rum or whatever. As long as all of the ingredients are there, we're going together. That drink. And I'm sure I'm going to get a lot of emails. By part, Tennis is like, Oh, my God, Mark, you cannot put all of that together and you shake it. That's not how it goes. I don't know, man. I'm not a bartender. It that's just how I think of it. Okay, basically, it doesn't matter in which order you put these notes. It doesn't even matter where you play them on the PM you could place right here. You could play a T rod here and you could player here right here always still have our C major court. Okay, but for now, we're mainly gonna be looking at reposition first inversion and second inversion. So we're not gonna be splitting the courts yet. We'll be doing that unless a 3.8 for now, which is going to look at the three different inversions you can make with a three note court. Okay, so c major in rue position because these seas at the bottom or at the left of the piano. Now, when I want to do a first inversion, all that basically means is I'm gonna release that. See, I'm gonna add it to the top, OK? Eso we get e g c So went from C E g two e g c as offset Just now, it doesn't matter in which order you play these notes as long should just play the notes from the court. So whether a play see e g or E g. C. Doesn't make a difference in how we're going to call that court, it doesn't make a difference in how it sounds, except for the fact that this sea is an octave higher. Thank. This one said will sound a little bit higher. Okay, but it will still sound like a Psi corps to see major courts ever play this. That is still the sound of C major. Okay, I would have to go here to get to minor. Okay, So see, major and reposition on, then. If we move these, see, we get into over call first inversion. Okay, so moved to see up to the right, we get into first inversion. We can also released the E and added to the top way have g ce that is still see major court . But now it's in the second inversion. Okay, So rude position producing only top first inversion put the eel the top second inversion And now we can, of course, release the G and put that on the top. And we're gonna have our third inversion basically, but because there's only three notes were back in the room, position looks see, is back at the bottom. So we're back and reposition. So for all of the major and the minor chords, we only have two inversions thief first and the second because after that second inversion , if you're going to do the same trick, you're gonna end up in rue position again. So reposition First inversion, second inversion root position. I would like to do this with all of the major courts. Only for now, because the same principle will apply for minor. I'll just show you one out here. Uh, okay, but basically the same principle applies. But before I'm going to show you all of these courts in all of their inversions, let me quickly show what happens when you take a four node court. Okay? You can, of course, use inversions there as well. All you have to do is release the bottom one. Added to the top. Okay, so right here will be the first version. Release the bottom one and add it to the top. Okay. And release the bottom one and added two d top. And they released the bottom one and added to the top Now, because we have four nodes, I was actually gonna be three inversions. So root position right here, then first inversion, second inversion, third inversion and root position again. Okay. So just so you realize that if you have four nodes in a court, you can actually have multiple inversions. You can have a first, a second and 1/3 inversion. But for now, let's play through all of the inversions of the major quartz. We're going to do that slope. We're going to do the white ones first and then the black ones. Okay, so let's sort of c major on. I want to see the first inversion. So play there for me. 92nd inversion on the repositioning it. Okay, I'll go a little bit slimmer. I remember playing major courts nor minor courts. A D major released the D and added toothy top roid, there is where it's gonna be the case of from here to hear, release half shop and added to the top and now release a and added to the top. Okay, so, uh, let's do the same with E. Major, a Naga Slough after Major. And if you haven't troubled to follow along to play along, but you can actually follow it in your head. But you having trouble to get your finger placement, and that's fine. We're not really playing yet. We're going to do that in the next section, okay? And then I'm gonna teach you how to do that? A little tricks on how to be better at that. But for now, I just want you to to actually be able to see all of these cords going. Okay? So, G major, uh, if you can play long, please do. Or at least give it a go playing a major right now, we're going to be major first version, second inversion and final right there. The root position. So now the city Black Keys. And then we're gonna be moving on to five chords in less than 3.5. - There we go. Now let's move on to lesson 3.5. If you want to watch this back to do it again, that's absolutely form. But keep in mind all we're doing, it's replacing the bottom note. We're releasing it and adding into the top, releasing it, adding a titty top, releasing it, adding it to the top. And we just keep on doing that so you can practice that in your own time if you want to. But I would like to had over to less than 3.5 45 courts 21. 3.5 '5-Chords': Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen 3.5. We're going to do five courts or power chords in this lesson is gonna be very cool. We're gonna be playing them in the left hand, modeling the right and because we're mainly gonna be using them in the left hand. And again, this is another theory Course. This is a course on Hank. You learn to play the piano, so I want to put it in the left hand because that's gonna be the most used to you. So basically a five chord is something like this and we're going again. Start on the tonic. Okay, so this would be a reposition five court, as on a first version. We could have that right here. We don't really do first inversions a lot with five chords. Mainly, we're just playing it in that group position. OK, so we're gonna be doing Ah, 12 courts C five D five e five F five G five a five b five. And then, of course, your a c sharp five de shell five, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And also including the flats. Okay. So, as with all of the other ones with C sharp as a D flat with a D shop and the e flat, etcetera, etcetera are all going to be the same court C Sharp Live d flat five. For instance, this one g sharp five a flat five. OK, it's all gonna be the same notes is use the name that difference. But for now, I want to show you what a C five chord is and why it's called a C five court. Basically, that has to do with intervals. G, when measured from the sea would be called 1/5. I'm not gonna explain your wife because it's really boring, and it's not really lots of used to it. But that's why we call it a five court. Okay, as in the next node will be as see again because in over five course were basicly playing in octu on, then playing that No, that's in the middle. Now, how do you know of its this note or thistle? That's a very good question. Basically, we have yet another pattern s. First of all, we're gonna put six notes in between 123456 and then we're gonna put four nights in between 1234 in order to get our five court okay, are 5/4 stretching 13 notes from here all the way up until there it's 13. Notes were playing three of them. So does 10 notes left that we have to basically no play on. It's going to be six as the four were going to do that for all of them. I'm gonna be playing it here because that feels noise. So we're middle C right here. We're going to go down quite a bit on Let's play now. I want to play d five. Say, let's put 123456 in between us plates That 11234 I have to play that one OK, for E. I have to play. 123456 in between 23 4 on e. Okay for F 123456 On, then. This is also going to be in half because it's always the same. So it has four in between. But it's also these same asleep. Bottom note. Okay, it's up until now cgc d i d e b e fcf And yes, we can actually just keep on walking that way like this. So G d G six in between. And then four A a with six in between. And then 1234 And then we do This sounds really not that nice. And why is that a look? 12345 in between. And them five say that's not the pattern. Way have to be here. 123456 in between. And then four. Okay, It's a sort of we'll see. Play along with me right here. Okay, if you can. On leads revoked to see. Okay, If you haven't trouble to play this there, we will figure that I'd later in section 41 gonna teach your hand to play all of these courts. Just fake it till you make it. So now we're gonna play C sharp, and then we have to put six in between. 123456 So g sharp is gonna be the next 11234 on yet another seashore. Okay. Same road here de shop, a shop on d shop. Then I've shop, see show, show G sharp d shop on G shop. And that right here, I'm gonna have to sink into this wide note right here. The F because we're playing a shop, have on a sharp. It's already in a naff right here. It's an issue up, but let's call it enough for now. Okay, so that's just city black notes for a non play along with me. So here, the next one. And of course, these are also flats because that this would be a g flat a flood five on a B flat. Hey, then it would be beef like beef. Okay, so let's all of them signing on a white and dio like this. Okay, Right here is starting here. Play along with me. - Andi ending here. Okay. CGC. So these are the five chords now. One ahead until less than 3.62 Duty major, seven Corts. 22. 3.6 Major 7 Chords: Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen 3.6. We're going to quickly go through these at a major seven in the morning. Seven because they don't want to spend too much time on them. If you need them, you're going to find them later on in the lessons on YouTube that come or on the PGA Champion will come if they're gonna be there. Okay. If if you're going to need them in a lesson. All mentioned them then as well. So I just want to teach you the pattern, show you a couple of examples, and then I wanted to actually go and find all the other ones yourself. OK, so you could take a piece of paper and write the numbers 1 to 12. Or you could write C c sharp, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And I want you to write all of these cords out as a little bit of a practice thing. Okay, so 40 major seven chord. We're gonna start with any major court okay on were simply gonna add 1/7. And where you gonna find that? What's really easy? We have three in between. Event to or we're gonna do is we're gonna add another three in between on Sunday. Note after that will be the note we need. Okay, so 32 on three. It sound kind of Jesse. It's pretty nice. Um, but that's basically the trick. So you take any major chord at three notes at the top and then played a note after that? Okay. Right here. Safer d major. It will be this one because that's three in between here. Them for E. It's going to be here because that's three in between there, then for f right here. Because, as three between there, a g who that doesn't send correct. So maybe I have to move up. That's a lot better. Three in between there. Okay. So just keep in mind on the right side as long playing root position. Keep in mind, we have to play in rue position. As long as you playing reposition, you're gonna add three notes on the top. Play the one after that and you'll have your major seven court. Let me do one more B flat right here. Okay. 123 in between. And I want you to go and find all of the other ones yourself. So we're still missing quite a few. Write down all of the off the notes C C Sharp, D D Shah pf Ashe are g shop a A shop and be all of them on a piece of paper or your iPad or wherever. And I wanted to figure out all of these court yourself before moving on to the minor sound courts. 23. 3.7 Minor 7 Chords: I goes looking to less than 3.7 right now, we're gonna have a look at the minor seven courts. And I Did you write down all of the courts from the previous lesson? I'm just checking because I know some of you are a little bit cheeky. So be honestly. Did you write them down? Because if you didn't, please go back, right. And then you know it will take you about five minutes. That's really important for the learning process. Anyway, just with the major seven courts. We got a little trick the morning seven or to other than three. And in order to find your its seventh, you're gonna play another two in between On, then play that note. So this one is your minus seven court. Okay. Same for Dio. Put two in between this'll one will be yourself. Okay, let's do G right here. Tune between three in between. A van to now. I also want Teoh a sharp or the flat. So let's do DIY shop right here. Thes sharp minor. And to add right here if you d sharp money or seven. Okay. On DLA zoo a flat. So right here you're a flat minor. Seven. Why? Because there's tune between them three and then two. So now take out that piece of paper from the previous lesson. If you're going it. If not, take a fresh sheet of paper. Right? Die major seven and minor. Seven on. Right, down on the left, C C sharp, D d sharp, etcetera All the way down. And I want you to write down all of the's courts. Okay, so figure them all. I bore yourself. If you haven't questions, you can always contact me via the help with any under website. You're gonna find a below the video. But for now, let's move until that's a 3.8 where I'm going to teach you about splitting courts. 24. 3.8 Splitting Piano Chords: Hi. Go is working to lessen 3.8 splitting courts. We're gonna split these babies up on. We've already been doing this a little bit and I think that's a 3.2 when I told you that you could play. See Right here. Is that a G right here on that on E right here on. We would still have the C major court. That's one thing to split them up like this just to make a point. OK, e g. So it's a C major court, but it's a little way to actually do it to make use of something. So basically what? I'm talking about splitting courts. I mean, you're not gonna be playing in the reposition. You're not gonna be playing it in the first version, neither in the second version or third inversion. If that one exists, what you're gonna do is you're gonna split up your court soap that could lead law exists. We could play an e energy here on then season the left hand. Okay, like this. What I'm doing is I'm playing season the left hand on energy in the right hand. So where splitting 1/4 usually splitting it on between hands. You could also play N. C here on a G active in the left hand. Now, this is not really a C major chord anymore, but rather a c major slash g on. We're gonna learn more about that in the next lesson. But if I would play this, that would still definitely be a c major court. Okay, so these are just a couple of examples now. It's very useful when you want to play a major seven, for instance. But you don't want to play the entire according to right hand. So basically the left hand is going to steal a note. Andi. Usually there will be the grand note of the quarterly tonic. It's if we ever see major seven. What I could do is I could play the season. The left hand on them played the rest right here. Okay. Rocket even laid like that and I will sign like a C major seven. I could even then play this one in an inversion and get to see my just seven here or even here. Okay. And why is that? Because we're still the same night. See, e g and B o k. C E g b right here. A very cool way to play it. See, Major seven court. Okay, so want you to give this in mind? This is just a little examples that you can split your cords and play them in the left hand , play them in the right. But be careful, because if you do the wrong way, you're gonna get a little bit of a different chord, as we will see in the next lesson slash courts. 25. 3.9 Slash Chords: Hi, guys. Sort of adolescent. Three born nine. Right now, we're gonna be talking about slash courts Any previous lesson. I showed you that you can split Accord and I went through a broader quick. I did that on purpose. I don't want to spend too much time on it, because we're gonna be seeing that later on a swell when we're playing these songs. So then we will do a lot more with that. And right now, I just want to introduce you. Toothy slash. You can sometimes see behind a court. So when I say slash cord, it's actually written down lines that let me show you an example above the piano. Right now, you can see a flat slash e flat, but that is actually how you Roy them down. So an a flat slash Any fla basically means you're gonna play your a flat court. Or let's say you played here a flood c e flat, and then you're going to repeat that e flat in the left hand. Okay, s. So you get this type of court now while I'm playing an octave in the left handle. Show you that in section four. Sit and worry about that for now. I could also play a single load in the left hand. But basically, what is doing is it's putting emphasis on that ive flat rather than on the A flat, which is the tonic. Okay, so this'll sends a little bit different than thistle. You could even do with the sea, like here. Okay, So any court with a slash, that means we're gonna put the emphasis on the note behind the slash. That could be another note. So, no, that isn't part of the court s. Oh, maybe like this. OK, but that doesn't really happen, law, because the B flat isn't part off the A flat court. You could see it right there, but it's not happening that off. Okay, you could Francis ce moaner slash See? Okay, which is just a mistake. It just means that you're burning a bit more emphasis on the sea, but basically playing a c major seven court. Okay, so sometimes you see it written down like that. But basically what? I want you to know that if you ever see a slash behind accord, it means we're gonna put a little bit more emphasis on that note And how exactly you're gonna do that you're gonna learn in section for. So don't worry about that For now. I just wanted to introduce you to the concept off splitting chords in the previous lesson and slash courts in this list. So for now, we're gonna be heading on to lesson three point. Senator, I'm gonna test all the selfie of Lund. 26. 3.11 Sus 2 Chords: Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen 3.11. This is a bonus lesson. So you don't have to which it in order to learn the rest of the ultimate piano course. But I think it would be very nice because these are discussed to courts. And in the next lesson, you're going to see sauce four quarts on. They do appear rather rather often. Okay. Rather off, especially the last couple of years have seen more and more of them in pop songs turning up . So it might be interesting for you to learn that, as the rule for these courts is going to be one note in between and then four, OK, so one night in between and then foresee Sort of see, skip one note. You skipped four notes. You're gonna have your sees us to court, so of course there's 12. We're gonna do them all right now. I don't want to spend too much time on them since sees us too, D major, we're gonna drop that down to Roy here. Say, just one in between. And then four. Okay, Now, right here. This'll would in constitute because there's nothing in between. So you have to get a little bit higher. One in between. And then four Rottier thing here. One in between. And 41 in between. And 41 in between. And four. And now we're gonna get a nice one as well. Right here. One in between, and then four on their own. Practice E. Okay, so let's do it slowly and play along with me right here. Okay? Now, of course, we also have the mini Sharps and the flats. I Let's have a look right there. Right here. Elite. That's one in between. And then four, one in between. And then 41 in between. And then 41 and four on draught here. Who? That doesn't saying correct. Now, why is that? Because I have to drop to the F warning between on gun four. Okay, so here, like that and these are all of these sons to courts, so keep in mind, you're gonna put one in between and then for your get yourselves to court. Now, let's move on to less than 3.12. I'm going to show you how to play these subs. Four quarts 27. 3.12 Sus 4 Chords: I go is working to less than 3.12. I hope you saw the previous lesson. The sauce two chords on there. Quite fun to play. Now we're going to do these sauce four quarts. A sauce for court is basically the opposite of a sauce to court. But we used to have one in between any of them four we're not gonna have for in between and someone. So basically, we have sauce to, which is one of between of them. For that, we have minor, which is soon between and then three. Then we have major, which is three in between and then two. And now way have cells four, which is foreign between thumb one. Okay, so sauce for right here for see sees us for Let's move on to D. Look for in between and the one let Ziggy right here for in between and one. And let's to a flat right here. 1234 in between. And then one. And let's do D sharp. 1234 in between and then one. So wants to get that pad out again. Or that piece of paper that iPad or your arm or wherever you put this court's on on, I want you to write down all of the sauce to courts as well as all of these sauce. Four courts. Okay. Now, if this would be a good moment to explain your by the on court Sometimes a set of sauce you see at a sauce means replace and add means to add. Okay, a d d to add another note. So if we have a sauce to write, your if we haven't add to the court would just be your major major chord on you Added that note in eso you playing four notes right now? Okay, same 40 sauce. Four. If you have an ad for you're gonna add that in employed right there, OK, make sense. So it's not really that interesting. We see them very, very rarely. But if you have a C ad thing, you know no, that you're gonna basically that. Okay, so I wanna have a look at the last two bonus lessons less than 3.13 40 or manage courts at 3.40 and 40 diminished courts. Let's head over there right now. 28. 3.14 Diminished Chords: Hi guys. Looking to lessen 3.14. I'm gonna teach you how to apply diminished courts, as in the previous lesson that the augmented courts are a little bit were we had three and three and 40 diminished courts. We're gonna have to and to in between. So sorting on a C, put two in between on then to in between They also don't signed very nice to and two, I could do that from a G e 02 on two on. I could do that from a D, for instance. Right here to aunt, too. Let's ride from an A flat two on two. That really sound awful then they But they're actually very useful known anti transpose from one key to Notre. So again for augmented its three and three and four diminished It's gonna be too and to in between. So what I want to do is grab a piece of paper. These were the lost courts were actually learning like this. And then if this ought accords coming up later, I'll tell you that in section for this was the very lost lesson off this section. So I hope you enjoy this section. I hope you learned a lot of courts, and I would definitely advice to Whenever you're gonna play the piano, take one or two minutes, hit a random node like thistle right here and figure out a couple of quarts. Okay, Figure out the major, figure out the minor, figure out this us to and the sauce four on a. You can figure out the augmented right here on if he diminished right here. You know, just figure out a couple of these cords for one or two notes every time when you play, so you get used to playing. These courts get used to the finger grip. You can do the left hand. You're gonna get in your right hand, whatever you want. But it's important to actually keep on playing these courts now and then. Not the most fun way to learn how to play these chords is in the easy lessons, either on YouTube or on PJM piano that come because you can actually put them to use. Or in the next section, Section four, we're going to be playing with courts, and I'm gonna teach you how to use courts to your advantage to learn songs very quick. So let's head over to section four a roid. Now 29. 4.1 Introduction to Mastering Chords: I go is working to lessen 4.1 of the ultimate piano course. Right now it's time to get down and dirty, because we're going to take the knowledge of the courts from the previous section and apply it to this one in order to actually be able to make some music. Now, if you haven't seen all the lessons in the previous section yet, I want advice you to go back, have a look right there on, then come back here. Otherwise, some of this stuff may not gonna make sense to you now is this is probably the most important section of the entire course, if you grounds. But this section, it's definitely worth the price for the whole course because courts are going to allow you to play almost every song in an instant. Okay, so in this lesson, I'm gonna introduce you to playing courts in the next one. We're gonna talk about core progressions, one of my favorite lessons of the entire course. Then a lesson 4.3 will will do left hand courts and less than four point forward to right hand courts. Then unless a 4.5 I'm going to show you what my basic set up is of when I am actually playing chords when I'm playing courts in the left hand in the roid and what will actually do to play my easy lessons as you can find them on YouTube. And then I want to demonstrate some left hand Pellerin, Synthroid, hand patterns and a 4.8 we're going to combine left and Reut. Then unless the football now, we're gonna play a couple of songs and less of football in 10. I want to talk about a standard chord grip that's also going to be very important. If you want to pick up on these courts quick and then a lesson 4.11. I'm gonna test you to see how much you actually learned in this section. And what do you should go back or not? Okay, so basically, if you would see previous section, you know, I know what a court is, but you probably don't really know what you could do with them, so want to demonstrate a little bit about that? Okay, As I've told you before, most of these songs are build up out of seven notes and also most of the popular songs or build up out of four quarts that sometimes there's a couple more. 456788 is usually the max that will be the max except of songs actually change key. And we'll talk about that later on because as well. But let's just say it's song has four quarts. Okay, we could, for instance, have a look at someone like you by Adele. The's four courts are basically repeating over and over and over again, and you get the entire song. For someone like you, by doubt, that means that if you know these four quarts, which are a major C sharp minor, um, have sharp five on de that you know how to play the entire song from the previous section. You still remember these four courts? I could tell you. Hey, how about if you play a C sharp minor ash up five and then a d Chord D major court, what would you get? And then you could simply step behind your piano and a root position. At least play these courts, and they wouldn't really sound like Adele yet, but at least you would have the courts right now. Later, Roman, I'm gonna teach You had to learn a new song every single day and all that kind of stuff going to use these inversions that we did in the previous lesson. So then you would simply keep this on the same and that you might have this one from here. Teoh here. Ok, she want to say close. That happens a lot in songs that you want to stay close to where you first played then to here and here, Okay. And then all of a sudden, it sounds quite a lot like someone like you by Adele. Then if you play the pattern, okay, you already hear that song. Say, that's why it's really important to learn these courts because basically, and you're gonna get better and better and better and better at this once, you know, four quarts of once, you know, the core progression is we're going to see in the next lesson you're able to play that song pretty quick. Okay, So even in the basic core layout, which I'm going to teach you in lesson 4.5 and less than 4.5, I'm gonna teach you that basic core layout I could just sell you. Hey, play a C minor have shown five d so evenly basically out you will be able to play that song for some people to sing along to. And then later, when you're gonna buy these utterance that I'm gonna teach you unless of 4.6 on 4.7, you'll be able to make it even a bit more cool. You would actually be able to play the original version, the original intro of Adele Someone like you just because she noted courts, and you have a little bit of experience with these patterns. So that's what I want to prepare you for in this section and practicing courts and playing chords. And then in the next section, I'm going to teach you how you can actually find the correct inversions to correct patterns and all that kind of stuff because it isn't really that hard. So that was just a little introduction. Basically, all you have to understand is if you which this tar section and you saw practicing, I would definitely advice to have a look of my easy lessons that I got for free on YouTube or on PJM piano dot com if you want to be able to download them, so get us much practicing is possible because thes easy lessons are gonna be so easy for you to play after a little while. Well, we have to understand is you get a bunch of chords, boom, you play them on. That's it. OK, so now let's have a look at less than four point to what we're gonna do the corporate Grecians. And after that, everything will hopefully start to make sense to you on it's gonna be a lot easier. 30. 4.2 Piano Chord Progressions: I go. It's work unseen. Lesson 4.2 in the ultimate piano course right now will teach you about course progressions . The very most important thing about this entire course is to understand core progressions. I'm going to spend a little bit of time here. You might think I already get it, so I want to move on. That's absolutely fine. If you get it, move on to the next lesson. But this is the most single most important thing. If you don't understand this, you're not going to be able to compose songs. You're not going to be able to play by ear. You're not gonna be able to play a new song every single day as I do. This is the most important lesson off the entire course. Okay, so watch it. Watch until the end, even if you think you already know it. Orchard till the end. And if you get bored, Yes, you can move on to the next one, but keep him on. This is the most important lesson. So what is a core progression now in pop music? These court progressions are basically describing which courts are being played. When whoever road someone like you by Adele. He wanted to have the same courts every single time. So he's sort of that with an A than a C sharp minor than half shop five and then a d and then he would give back again, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera for the entire song. It would never change. Okay, so core progression is demonstrating what court to play when and usually these corporate aggressions are rotating in most cases, in most cases, in popular music. Right now you're playing the verse in one cor progression and then the chorus in another core progression. Okay, and if you don't know what a verse and a chorus is, we'll get that later on. But basically you would play a piece of the song like this and then a piece of the song like that, and they would go back to this and go back to you that, and go back to this and go back to that. Some songs have the same core progression. Fujian's horror song and some songs are a little bit more. I would say cool, you know, a little bit more unique, and they have four or five or six core progressions and these songs will be a little bit harder to learn because you have to remember all of these progressions. So how does the progression look like? Like I sat with someone like you by Adele. Eyes sought out on on a Vegas to C sharp minor. Have shop five on D. Ok, if you keep on playing this, you get that song, okay? Off course with a pattern in Detroit. Them. But that doesn't matter, because the court is gonna be the same, like Okay, now there's a couple of things that a core progression needs to describe. If you want to do it correctly, if you want to do the way we're going to do in section five k one, which courts are being played to, How many cans that you play each court three, which inversion rd courts in. And four. If there's something that's different than the usual stuff. Okay, maybe the left in place, something else. You wanna have that in there as well? Ok, so that's the kind of stuff I want to see in a corporate Grecian. If you give that to me, I would be able to play that. Okay. If you give me four quarts, for instance on. Then you say you have to play the 1st 22 counts and the lawsuit four counts. And then you would say, Okay, this is gonna be that a version that is going to be in that inversion. There's gonna be that inversion that's gonna be in that inversion on in the left hand the loss courtship to play power cord instead of an octave. OK, that will be enough information. I could play the song now, you don't always have that information in the next couple of sections. I'm going to demonstrate to you how you can actually figure all of this stuff. I by itself and with some experience, you get better at that, Okay, you'll play them in the repositioning, gonna and and like, there's a kind of and you tweak it a little bit and then you'll be able to figure that out . But basically, that corporate Grecian is an instruction on how to play the song. Okay, so let me give you the core progression for the first part of someone like you by Adele. Okay. On that you can play along with me. You can learn this song in the meantime, whilst we're doing this, Why not? So I'm you play a C shopping E for a You have to played four counts. Okay? And then G shops see shop E for four counts. Have sharp C sharp f sharp. Four counts on ADF shop for four counts. Okay, so I already know the courts Any amount of counts. So 123123 12341234 Hey, one of the things that you could also add your progression. But it doesn't really belong to the progression as the pattern in the Ryder. Okay, the progression is really Would is being played when and how many times. Okay, So which courts? How many times has basically the progression and then the rest is all dress up. The rest is all tweaking at making a nicer Say, this is the main progression. A c sharp minor have shop five. And for four counts of pop, that is it progression for someone like you by Adele. Now, if you want to tweak that, you would say OK, but in the right hands you need to play this pattern three, four, and then we have to the next one to three four to three four on 123 She, um that's we're going to see later on. Unless a 4.5 normally, I would play an octave with all of these course right here. But when you play someone like you that you're not playing octaves, Okay, so in the core progression, you might write down 40 left hand. You play basically half a five court right here, okay? As I'm right here on here and then de a d So in someone like you by Adele, the left hand is actually not a normal left hand as we will play it. Okay. Ah, lot of the times you see five quarts in the left hand or octaves, OK, But in this somewhere, seeing Andy thank G shop Andy have sharpened, see shop and say that's a little bit different than normal. So I could write that down in my core progression as well. But again, that's not necessarily the point of the core progression. And the core progression is two things. You definitely want to make sure which courts to play When how many times will play them now? It's also possible that you have in between courts. Okay, so you could friends have this. 123 Something like that. Okay, that's also possible. So 123123123123 Whatever. Okay, Something like that. That's also possible. Core progressions can be all kind of stuff, but usually in about 90 I want to say 94 or 95% of these situations, you'll have four chords in every core progression. Okay, sometimes as five in something like this, where you play three chords and then one van jump over to the other. Or sometimes you only have three. Because one of them is being played twice as long. For instance, you go this. Okay, so you play the eight toys is loath. You could also have one in the middle. So a nice example of that is clocks with Coldplay right here. Wait. We're actually playing this court ones and then scored twice. Luke here. Rio on, then things court ones. Okay, so the core progression there would be a flat B flat, minor beef. Monroe again on an F one. OK, for 22222 Okay. Said two counts per court. Another one is where we're actually playing a B flat chord and then an IV e flat again on then. Okay, like that. Say that's an example off. Ah, core progression with three courts where the middle quarters being played twice a slung. You've also got a lot of other examples where the 1st 1 was being played twice as long when the last one, it's all possible. But usually there's going to be eight or 16 counts divided in groups of four, four times for 16 or two times four, said groups of two for all of the courts, two times for his eight. So eight or 16 counts, that's what we're usually going to see. But for now, I think that's enough. Suffered by the court progressions. I hope you feel I learned to play someone like you by Dow, even though I went over really quick. I wouldn't normally do that if I wanted to teach you the song, but basically just wanted to show you how to do the core progression. So for now, wanna have a look at less than 4.3 to check out the Reut hand courts? Okay, let's have a look. Roy, There 31. 4.3 Right Hand Piano Chords: Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen 4.3. I know the previous lesson was a lot of information, but we're going to spend the rest of the entire course toe work that out. OK, said. It's gonna be a lot of suffer back or progressions. And I'm sure you're going to get that. If for some reason you don't understand it or you have some questions below the video, that's always a little button where you can ask for help. So just click there, submitted ticket on the I'll respond Roy there. Okay, but for now, But for now, I wanna have a look at the roid hand for the courts. So we're playing our courts in our left hand or in a roid hand when we're just playing courts in a normal way by playing courts. Okay, on what I like to do so like to play them in Mauroy hand quite a lot. It's not just me. That's a lot of people who play courts in their right hand and this stuff like this, um, parts of the Caribbean where basically playing a bunch of courts look, court, court board and another court. Okay, so sometimes the roid and is playing quartz like that with little notes in between. And when I do my easy lessons, usually the roid hand is just playing these courts. OK, so you could, for instance, have this as a song. So I could, for instance, play these chords for two kinds for court to get a song okay like that. That is a possibility. And I do that quite often. And then I would pair it up with the left hand right here. But how we do that, I'll tell you that unless a 4.5 okay, But for now, it's important to understand that you can play these courts as a block right here could also apply little pattern, and we'll see that later in less than 4.6. I think a little pattern of clocks by Coldplay a small is the pattern before of someone like you idle on. We got multiple patterns for that. Okay, But what I wanted on the Senate's that in both these cases, the right hand is just playing a chord. So when we're playing these courts right here, or whatever playing these courts thing or whether we are applying a pattern, we're just playing that full court in the right hands. Okay, Now, sometimes you don't play full court. Sometimes you do what I did before with pirates. Okay? Where you play a couple of separate news in this case, A and C. And then Okay. Where you played separate notes in between the court. Now you can do that in a song like this. Parts of the Caribbean. There's other songs. Were is being done their songs. Where your plate playing a court. I'm like that. Okay, so you break the court. It is something like that. Okay, that's also possible. So you don't always have to play that full on court the entire time. As a block, you can split it up by pattern, and we'll talk about that later. But you can also put notes in between the blocks. OK? Differences. Right here. What we're doing is we're playing two octaves and then all of a sudden accords and accords . Okay, so then you're playing lyrics with courts, and it's always very cool to do that To put lyrics in a court because of makes it sound way more fooled makes the science really noise. It's a little bit tricky to do that when you're improvising in the beginning. But later on, you'll actually get used to that. That's really cool. Okay, an easier way to do that would be this. Where basically ceilings the D from the court looked the court were playing is a B flat major court. I'm playing B flat. Evan B flat right here. D hasn't been played yet, so why don't play that in the roid hand? Okay, so maybe right here like this. We could do that. Okay. And then we're using the's courts in a completely different way than what we have been doing before. We're just playing them as a block. Cases sometimes. I just wouldn't provide some background music for someone to sing to Roy. Here. Let's see. What do we got on that? I'm playing a full court. Sometimes. I wanted the lyrics. Then I split that up. Sometimes I want to do pirates of the Caribbean where Putin notes and then accord. Sometimes I want to do some vocals. Indie cord. Sometimes you just want to use that court. You emphasize something, Okay. When you're playing this, you you could do something like that. Okay, so let's say you want to play this. Why not use in court? Okay, you're still getting that melody line or eso you can use according the right hand in a lot of different ways. Now, wanna have a look at quartz India Left hand are going to keep it a little bit shorter right there. Because basically all of the suffering been doing in the right. We can also do in the left. But then they left. I'm usually doing some other stuff, so let's have a look at lots of 4.4 left hand courts. 32. 4.4 Left Hand Piano Chords: I got a little to lessen. 4.4. I want to talk to you by the courts in the left hand. I have you seen the previous lesson? I know it was a little long, but I wanted to demonstrate some different kind of stuff that we can do in the roid hand without actually sharing all of the parents that I'm going to show you in less than 4.6. And without telling you too much about this stuff that I'm gonna tell you in section 567 and eight. Basically, I don't want to give you too much information just yet. I just wanna give you an idea of what is going on. So therefore, the left hand, I'm going to take it a bit more short. Basically, the main courts that I'm playing in the left hand, our actives, which are not really courts, but I like to put them in here. Anyway, I also play five courts. Okay, um, five courts with a little note in between right here. Ok, but what I like to do a lot of times a supply pattern to match with the right hand, Okay? But I'm going to tell you the patterns later on. So they left him mainly actives on sometimes five. Okay, very rarely do I play something like with someone like you, like by Dell. Play a little. This isn't really accord, but basically it's an interval. But I guess you could call it a cord if you can. One was the note in the right. Okay, Play these little to finger thinks on Look back to five court again. So that's the main stuff that I do in the left hand Now when it comes to courts, okay, and there's a bit more information that I don't want to share yet because I want to build this up in a chronological way. So let's finally moved to less than 4.5. Where can explain to you the basic structure of higher play these courts and these easy lessons? Because the easy lessons are the lessons you're gonna want to follow the most in the beginning to get used to these courts. Basically, it's really simple. Guys, if you get these courts inside your head, you're going to be able to play all of these songs. Yes, Maybe it will be in a basic way. Maybe you'll just be playing this. You go like, Oh, that's a little boring, but at least you're starting to play these songs now. This, for instance, is already know woman who crab about Morley. Okay, so if you know these basic courts right here, c g a minor And here again, See, just walk down 49 to play No woman no cry by Bob Marley. It can go that quick later on. Okay, so take my voice on. In the beginning, it might be a little bit struggle, e, but have a look of the easy lessons on you. Cheap. I've got about 100 modern ones, and I'm not and 50 of the all the ones. Okay, So make sure to check that out there on YouTube. Com slash pgm piano. If you want to dance with them, go ahead to PMP. Another comic in Dana's. I'm right there, but for now, I wanna have a look at less than 4.5 33. 4.5 Piano Chords + Piano Octaves: Okay, guys. So I'm glad to see you're still with me. And right now, we didn't lesson 4.5 quarts on octaves, and we're going to put them together. We're gonna play courts in the right hand and octaves in the left hand and together that's going to give a really nice blend of sounds. You've already heard a lot because it was already doing in a little bit on. Basically, I'm going to demonstrate to you how we do that. So whenever we play quartz and octaves in most of these situations, let's say you play your quarter reposition, right? You got the tonic, the name of the court, the ground nodes basically on the bottom. Okay, that is the way we're gonna do a couple of quarts right now, so let's There's something fun. Let's sort of t o g back to CEO right here. Um, we're gonna my start with left as well. So one should play c and G f i c e g b d. Have I see on c e g, namely left hand, we're gonna match the ground note or the tonic of the court. So, sister playing See, we're gonna play a C octave in the left hand. Okay, then, as we move up to F, I want you to play an active and then for G You're gonna play a G andan. Okay, so now I know this might be a little bit tricky in the beginning from, you know, this kind of perspective where you have to do two things at the same time. But this is something you want to learn a lot, because this is really important. So we're gonna go very slow, then go and teach you a couple of tricks to do that. Okay, so, first of all, the right hand, as you can see, isn't even changing posture because see, e g those to ward notes in between were moving it over to F. So it is also tube ordinance in between. Right here on G. There's two ordinance in between, so you can just keep that in the same grip. All we have to do is place it in the right position. So you just gonna keep that in the same grip? Basically, all you have to do is place it in the right position on the piano case. You can lift it up. Basically, play that. Let's do that slowly. Okay, So store here. Lift off. Scooch over. Play again. Uh, right here. Okay. Now for left, we're gonna do octaves. Okay. So hopefully you remember how to play. Actors play and note on the pinky and only some. It's gonna be the same note. And what you have to do is relax your hand, okay? Relax your hand a little bit so you can actually play that wanted. Then be up here because gonna be very annoying to play. No, I'm actually allowing my hand to drop suit. A c active move up to a knave. Active G active, active on the sea Arctic. Now, this is gonna take a little bit of time to get some time as well to get these standard grip of an active. Okay, Once you have that, you can just put that on the piano on played anywhere. It doesn't matter where you play. The black notes are going to be a little bit closer together, basically, once you have the grip. Uh, okay. On that grip is always gonna be the same for the wild keys. Because the distance is the same. No matter where you play your octaves. Okay, so we're simply going to match them. Played his Samak tive as renewed of the broad hands right here. Okay, we're gonna do that with a whole bunch of other courts. We could include ports with black notes right here. Okay. Play f a c who can apply little inversion half B flat D g c B flat d on Have a see who welcomed little bit quick there. So let's do it again. F a c have be fled d g c back to FB flood D and F A c Ok, ok, left hand is not gonna play the name of the quarter. Okay, now again, on average that the bottom bud, This is not the reposition of the court. So I have to put that a route first B flat, t half, because it's a B flat major chord. So the 11 has to play a B flat octave. Ok, then see was in G c e Say that also wasn't in reposition. So see e g with the SIAC. Okay, so we sort on f go very slow takers longer Should have to to find the correct knows. Don't play before you got it. Make sure all of your fingers on the correct notes. Now play it. Okay, let go. Make sure your fingers are on the correct notes before you play it. OK, Go back. Thing is in the correct notes. Check them all on fingers only. Correct notes. Check them all. Yes. OK, now we're going to do it again. Make sure your fingers are on the correct notes. Guys, check them all that. Okay? Sonatas, Idiot. A win again. Right here. Very confusing. So you can toy around with that a little bit. Basically. Would have wanted to learn a summation that left hand up with the roid hand. And I'm gonna be talking about that in a Let's see, 4.8. Could be talking about that unless of 4.8 that we actually want to link them together like they belong together. Okay, Now, sometimes you don't play the ox of that corresponds city Name of the court, for instance, the song if we have a look at the courts, we got d flat brought here d flat, major. Then a flood says for I hope you saw these US four videos. If lets us for a regular. A flat on af Maja Corluka Roy. Here, major. Okay, so d flying a flood says four. A flat on a major is a major nodes. Minor minor. So don't worry. If you can't find out these courts really quick, we'll get to that later. Okay? In a section 567 and eight will do a lot of that. But for now, what I want to realize is with God d flat in case so the note would be d flat brought here . We've got a flood salesforce city No, would be a flat, a regular, a flat said, you know it again would be in a flat. And then mourner said the note would be in OK, but if we look at the left hand, we've got D flat. So that's correct. But now we're playing an e flat were not playing in a flood doctor. Otherwise it would sound like this right here. Now listen to the difference, Or this that sounds more like Viva la vida. Why is that? Because the second cord is an a flat surface. Four slash e flat. Okay, so doesn't e flat behind? Remember when I said these slash courts in the previous section. When there's a slash the no that's behind that slash is the one that we want to emphasize. And when we play the chords in the easy lessons or in lessons like this on, we want to match up the road in the left hand, like this or here. We want to play the name of the court with the left hand for the octave, except if there's a slash, because then you have to play whatever is behind that slash. Okay, now, in 99.9% of the cases, whatever is behind these slash is going to be a no that's already in the court. So let's check a flat D flat on the flat and yes, indeed D e flat active eyes. Part of this court. Okay, says that's what we're playing that that means that if somebody tells you high, let's play d flat. A flat slash e flat a flat ends on F minor that you would have to play this a foot slash e flat a flat on have minor. Okay, if somebody tells you Hey, play d flat a flat serves four slash e flat a flat. And then f Marner, you would have to play this and you get OK because you then have to put that other active in the left hand. Say, that's important to remember. We're going to combine left android, usually with according to the roid hand octave in the left. And then if there is a slash that octopus is not gonna be tonic is not gonna be the name of the court, but it's actually going to be whatever is behind that slash. So I hope that's clear. Basically, if the snow slash play the name of the court, if there is a slash play, whatever is behind the slash, but for now, on the move on to less than 4.6. 34. 4.6 Left Hand Piano Patterns: hi goes struggled to less than 4.6 left hand patterns. Right now, I'm going to show you some of the patterns we complain, the left hand and harder buildup I keep in mind and give you some building blocks in this section. But I'm not actually teaching you how to play specific songs. I'm doing that on YouTube, but in the next section and Section six, we're gonna be working more and more towards that and what I actually want to do. What I want to achieve is that you get to be able to play all of these songs you want, even without my help eventually. Okay, that's my goal here. So I'm going to show you a couple off left hand. Parents. I just want to demonstrate that there are parents for the left hand, and then which pattern specifically you get to play. We'll get to that later on, and I'm also teaching that in all of the individual lessons on youtube dot com slash bijan piano. OK, so let's just have a look at the piano and do a couple of patterns. One of the most basic patterns is just playing a single note So let's say we have the courts. C g a n f than you could just play a single note. Okay, that is a pattern 40 left hand. But that's actually core progression. Just playing one note at a time. Okay? Another pattern. Another thing we complain left to see. Play octaves. Okay, There's also stuff where you go back and forth, okay? Or the other way. Like thousands. Okay, you could be together, and then just a thumb is all of my most favorite patterns for the left. And to do that a lot playing active and then just the thumb. Give that a little good. Sometimes we do like, this kind of sounds like with or without you. Okay, Sometimes we use the middle note as well. So play a five corps. Basically a second little higher. Sometimes you played like this where you play the bottom note of the court of the five chord metal. Note the top one on the middle one again. I think you do the same. Sometimes we play the bottom one and then the top two. Sometimes to play the bottom ones. It's up to for three times. Do that quite a little swell. Okay, this happens. That's where you play the bottom one and then you go back and forth between the top two. Okay? Another thing that we see quite off. That's why I play the five chord and then go up to the next No tickets if you play. See Major C G c E C g and then g d g b g d. Okay, like that. And that's of course, a lot of variations. Later on, when we're gonna be playing by ear when I'm gonna teach you how, actually learn a new song every single day. It's gonna be our job to identify these courts. So we know that there's a c a g on a moaner in Africa, even though that might be a little bit tricky for you. Right now. Later on, I'm gonna teach us some very easy tricks to find these courts. Okay, so let's Presuppose. You know, the courts already see g a on, but you want to get that order sounding. You want t to sound like this song like we do with it like we did with Adele. If you hear this, it still doesn't really sound like this song. You need to apply that pattern and it's the same right here. So then you can choose from all of these patterns the ones I just showed you. And there's even more, of course, to find the thing that really suits the song. Or, if you want to change the style of this song que way, for instance, have a very rock song or what I did with the de Sposito, for instance, basically, player, a basic pattern like this make the song very soft. Okay, so, for instance, if we would want to play with or without you by you too. These aren't the official course, but we could use this. Okay, so you can use the patterns in the left hand. Teoh pick something that sounds like a song. One of the patterns that also really like And nowadays, five toys, Which is of course, a little bit more difficult to dio jump. I don't want you to really about this kind of suffocate. Just relax. Sit tight. I know that I'm going through door quite quickly because this, to me, is still kind of theory. And I don't want to spend too much time on theory. We're going to spend a lot of time on the practical bit and we'll do that later, OK? In the next section, I'm going to teach you how to combine left and right like a pro. And is that section I'm gonna take it very easy. I want you to practice a lot of suffering there. For now. I just want to get you through this stuff, give you a whole I d. So now, basically, if you think about off what we've been doing so far, we have these skills which were basically showing you which notes to choose from a K seven notes in a song. Usually which notes are they are These are the only knows you can play that we had the cords on, that we had the chord progression on. What I didn't tell you is that if you basically take these core progressions, all of these cords will fit into that skill. Okay, I'll get to that later on A swell, A little bit more in depth. So basically, if you know that skill consists of seven notes are you have to say to these seven notes, they know there's a core progression and these courts are also sticking to these same seven notes. That all makes it a lot easier for you to find these songs on in the beginning is gonna be tough because you don't know any chord yet, but we're going to be doing a lot of practicing. And I'm going to show you a lot of cool stuff later on where you're going to be able to remember a lot of these courts. Even if you don't remember the name, that's fine. But we're gonna be talking about regular court grips later in less than what is it? 4.4 point 10 and less than 4.10. We're gonna be talking about standard chord grips as that is going to help you so much to put all of this information together. Okay, basically, we have a song. We put it in a skill so we know which notes to play. Then we have a core progression with four quarts. These four course will usually be in that skill as well, because of the core progression, you know, when to play which court and how many times to play it. And then now we're gonna apply those patterns City court. So you know how to play that specific song taking into candy inversion and the pattern. Okay, so, basically, as we will see later us well, in a play by ear section, there's a couple of things you have to do in order to play a song. No de skill, no de corps progression. Know how to play the chords in the specific inversion and then applied the pattern. And that's only four steps and you'll be able to play a song in an easy way, basically playing those courts. Then, later on, we're going to be able to build out of those patterns into, actually lyrics or melody lines, and they only even be able to play those as well. Okay, so there's just a couple of steps in order to play almost any song out there, especially the song she heard on the radio. And that's what we're doing right here. So right now, I want to head over to less than 4.7 where I'm gonna teach you by Roy hand patterns, and I'm just going to demonstrate a few of those because we'll be talking about it later on as well. So let me demonstrate a couple of these road in Paris in the next lesson. 35. 4.7 Right Hand Piano Patterns: how goes sort until less than 4.7 roid. Now we're going to be doing Reut hand patterns now. Deeds are not limited. Okay? I'm just showing you a couple of examples. So you get an i d of what we can do the right hand. But later on, I'm gonna share you more and more and more. And if you have a liquid YouTube, com slash PG and piano, all of Melissa's up there would demonstrate the specific pattern 40 specific song that we're playing. Okay, Now, keep in mind, I'm just making all of this stuff up, okay? These patterns, patterns then really exist. Artists make of the patterns as well. Okay, It's not like you have to play things pattern, or you have to play that we can improvise a little bit right there. But if you want to play a song exactly the way the artist is playing it, that all you have to do is mimic their pattern. But they could have also gone with another predator. Okay, They just chose a specific pattern. And that's why this song sounds like that. So I want you to take it a little bit easier yourself The most important thing is to play the correct court at the correct time, as in the correct inversion of possible. And then you basically have these song, the artists or the musician Ortiz, singer, songwriter or whoever is playing it then picked a pattern to make that song sound really cool. Okay? And we are of course, going to play those patterns as well. But just keeping one that that is the part that they literally made up, the one like on its signs Conical I'll do this. OK, but anyway, let's have a look at the right hand. Let's say we have a cord A C chord less did the same chord progression as I showed in the left So C g a monitor and f Okay, we can just play those courts in a block like this Waken leave out notes by just playing octaves way could also just play a single note on on again. You don't have to remember these Let me repeat this one. You don't have to remember these because I'm just showing you a couple examples So you know that they exist. Okay, You could also go for a double one right here. Now, this is a little bit cheeky because I'm playing my game with, um Okay, right here. Okay. Or I could pick these two. I k right here. Then I could play a notary version if I wanted Teoh or I could play five. Court gave. That is also pattern. Now, I can also spread on the court. Okay. There's so many things you can dio. Okay, um, like with someone like you by Adele Border one. Just keep in mind Is that a lot of the times of the right and is gonna play a certain pattern for all of the four quarts if you realize what the pattern is, so you can simply play that song. Okay, you get apologize, but one republic just playing thes course on applying a basic pattern of the top two anti bottom water. Okay, etcetera. Sometimes the right on this plane, the courts with little notes in between. Okay, that's also possible. It's all right hand patterns that so much stuff going on. So I'm gonna be teaching you how to do many of Thes Corp veterans in the lessons on YouTube in 40 specific songs. So you always have the exact pattern that you want to play for that specific song. But I'm also gonna teach you a lot of them in the arrest of the lessons Roy here and Yeltsova piano course. Because I'm gonna be demonstrating you quite a lot of stuff here we're gonna be practicing active place of and then I'll put in different courts because I like to practice along with actual songs. I'm gonna teach you quite a lot of songs in this course as well on dial, Just pick them Whatever song I find useful at the moment, all teacher had to play that song and we're gonna be applying the left hand as thyroid hand pattern that is useful to that song. So now we're gonna be moving on to less than 4.8 Are want you before you go there, take a little break, get to the bathroom. If you need to have some mortar, eat something I don't know, take a bit of fresh air because the next lesson might get a little bit frustrating for you . It may also not be. I mean, you might be lucky you might be able to do that already, but in the next lesson, we're going to do something really cool. Combining left a roid and making auto fixations. It's a term I thought of by myself. So don't worry about it. You could also call it auto match matching hooking up left and right, however you want to call it. I didn't care. I made the term up. But the thing we're going to do is actually something really important. And if you're going to learn that now you're gonna thank me for it so much later because this is the thing that will make you be able to walk up to any piano and ask somebody hate name at any song. Doesn't matter which one and I'll play it for you right now. So make sure to check that out. We're going to take it through a couple of levels and the next lesson we're going to the first level, which is good morning, the left in the right, hands on the patterns. And then later on, I'll teach. You had to find the correct courts in a cheeky way and then later in this section, playing by ear, you're gonna have to be a bit more advanced in order to do that. They're going to be able to play pretty much anything right off the bat. So I want to thank you so much for watching this. Take your little break. Okay, Take a little break and then add on to less than 4.8. 36. 4.8 Combine Left & Right Hand: I go is starting to lessen 4.8 of the ultimate Piana Clausen's this lesson. I want to talk to you yet again about combining that left and the right hand while we're playing courts where we're playing courts, in theory roit. And it's gonna be a little bit different than when we play a lyric. Okay, let me show you what I mean with them by showing you the difference right now. So let's say we're playing a simplified version of Hit the Road, Jack. No way could have caused Also do that with Octave in the left hand. Um, Roid. Now, Roy and I were playing the court and active configuration, which has seen all of my easy lessons. Okay, which is the active in the left hand on a chord in the right hand. Okay. Night. That court doesn't have to be a reposition as they are right now. Okay? It could also be different, for instance, right here. Okay, but it's gonna sign a little bit weird like that if you want to play this song. So if you play the lyrics, it's more gonna be something like this. Okay? And that could save on Okay, Where's with the courts Where we just play this'll allowing you to sing to it yourself. OK, so that's the difference that I might with easy lessons on vocal lessons. If I do vocal lesson on YouTube, you will have the lyrics in your right hand. You have the vehicle on in the right hand, but for now, one of sick to the courts. And then in the next section, Section five, we're gonna be doing a lot of lyric work in the roid hand on also livermore quartz because basically, we're gonna play little songs right there. Okay, so for now, what I want it on the sand is that it would be very handy if you change your roid hands that your left hand actually jumps to the correct court automatically. A case as you can see, no matter how I proved my Roy hand, my left hand automatically jumps toothy, correct court to the correct octave. I have to say, OK, that works like this. I'm basically adjusting my right hand and my left hand is jumping to the correct active. Okay, I don't really have to think about it that much, because because my left one is basically trained to jump to the correct octave. Now, is that handy? That's handy because you don't have to with your left android hand. At the same time, you can just picture right hand in a certain position on the left hand Will follows suit hatefully. A case should trained correctly. So how come we've practiced that? Basically, it's a matter of playing a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of courts and that left hand on an unconscious level, I'm going to talk about conscious and unconscious levels in the in the next section. That's a 5.1. But on an unconscious level, your left hand will be linked to your right hand capes if you plays them. Roid here in a certain court that left hands actually going to be jumping. And of course, I'm not playing. It's a little bit harder, but yeah, that left hand is automatically jumping. I'm not really thinking about my left hand that much right here, for instance, this would be an a slash c sharp. That is when it doesn't come in that handy. Okay, because you would have to overrule your left hand because Normally, it will automatically go here. Okay, We've seen that example right here. Okay? Because normally I will get right here. If I don't really pay that much attention to my left hand, it would automatically jumped it. That a flat active. Okay, so basically, what I want to do is I want to play some of the courts in the right hand, and I want to see if you can get your left hand on the correct octave, and we're going to do that quarter bid to get you up to speed on that. But yet again, the only way to really practice is about playing a lot of songs on. We're playing a lot of these core progressions from the easy lessons or from these songs were going to do in the next section, and you can get up to that level. Okay, It would just be so noise if you could do that, because because it's gonna make playing so much easier, even even after a little while. You're going to play. These corporate Russians may be placed something like this and that left hand would just keep on doing that. Like no matter whatever. What All the thing. You're doing your left and will be playing that. Okay, So very nice thing to put in your left hand. So let's play a couple of quarts. I'll play 1/4 of the right hand on what I want you to do. So play the octave that matches on the left. Answer didn't pay changes to the right. I just want you to play the matching active on the left. Okay, I'm going to start with rue position courts, so you only have to watch on my thumb. Basically, on that note is going to be indicating which octopi have to play. Right? Here's if I play this, you have to play this note, which isn't a you play the octave. Okay? I am then going to play the Octopus Well, so you can check if you have the correct one. This is the middle C. I'll be playing my courts in this area so you can play your doctors in this area. It doesn't matter if you play active here or there or there. That's all fine. But this area might be a good area to stick with. Then, after a little while, I'm going to change things up. I'm gonna play courts and inversions, and that's gonna be a bit more tricky to see if you can keep up there. Okay, so here we go. Root position. Courts only play deductive matching. If you're playing this'll you're correct. OK. Uh, yeah. Okay. I hope you can keep up with this. Uh uh uh, if not, don't worry. It's it's not the easiest thing in the world. And I'm going to change it up and play inversions. That's okay. Give you a bit more time to think. See if you notice what this is. You're playing an advocate of your correct. OK, Uh uh uh uh Ah, uh uh huh. Okay. I can Totally insanity. Having trouble to keep up. This is normal. Okay, If you be able to get them all, you're doing extremely well. But what I want you to do so wanted to keep in mind. This lesson is up in the course on after doing section five and six. And if you've been practicing a little bit, maybe a month or two months later, I wanted to come back to this lesson. I'm going to do a couple more for you and I'm pretty sure you're going to be able to play a lot more than than you will. They were able to do now. So let's do another 20 or so that will be moving on Celesta for porn on. We're gonna play that song. Hit the road, Jack. With a couple of quarts. I'm going to show you a little transposition right there as well, just for the heck of it. And that will be going to less than 4.10 when we're gonna show you a little trick on standard chord groups. And the lesson 4.11. That test is coming up already. So that's 20 more courts. See if you can keep up and that move onto the next lesson. Uh, really? - Ah . Uh Hey, guys. So that's about enough practice for now. Let's move on with the next lesson. 37. 4.9 Play Your First Piano Song: I got something to lessen. 4.9. I'm going to teach you how to play here. The road, Jack in a very easy way. Just here to get some core practicing. Okay, so the first way we're gonna do it is we're gonna play an octave in the left hand plane. A active a g active on active andan e octave. You can already hear that like that. You can also have a look above the piano. You can see the courts right there. Okay. A moaner g f and e minor. Okay. On the left hand, as I said before, is simply playing the octave the correspond city name of the court. So a g f e a g f e Nice. The right hand is gonna play all of these courts and root positions. Say very easy. A ce right here. G b d f a c on e g b. Okay, So Rod is playing this on. All you have to do is keep your hands in the same grip and moving down. Okay? Now we're gonna play together with left. You can do it slower if you need to get slower. Just play along with me right here. I will. Can a kick up speed pick up speed a little bit right here and now we're gonna slow down again. Ah, now we're going to do something noise because we're gonna play roid first and then left. Okay, Now we're gonna play left first and then right. Which one do you like better? Right? First or left first, all I left first a lot better. So if you having trouble, you can play a single hand. But I want you to actually get used to playing octaves. So take it very slow and go here. You could also play the right hand in the same court. 40 left hands. OK, but ideally, you would be moving like this. So this is a core progression. So that is a core progression. Were just running through these four course that we've good above the piano. So now that we had a little bit of practice, I wanted transpose them to the original court. So we've got a flat, a flat slash g flat, a flat and e flat. It's no the easiest courts in the world. But I think you're ready for real. Okay, So the left hand is gonna play a flat, and then when it's a slash room, they have to play whatever is behind that slash So a flat G flat than a flat. I hope you remember that from the first section we have on F road here is that a flat is half a node lower than the AF. So basically, which usually called that an E, but right now is being called on a flat. Okay, so left is going a flat g flat a flood on zan e flat. Okay, so, uh uh uh Right here. Let's give that a little goat play along with me. Ah, Uh huh. 90. Roy hand is gonna play a flood, Mourners. So a flat see flat right here in e flat. Okay, then you're not going Daniels saying in a flat, See flat e flat. And then I'm gonna go to flat right here. Remember, this is normally a neighbor. Right now it's an f flat on, then e flat. No one would say that sounds really weird, but when you add in that left hand, it actually makes quite a lot of sense. Okay, eso Let's give that a little go here we go slowly, right and say the same right? If you haven't done, is just practice your left hand. First them practice the roids and I put them together slowly. And now let's see if we can do right. Left droids Left, Right, left, right. Take it easy as you have, Teoh in order to play. Okay? So practice that a couple of times. I want to now head over to less than 4.10 to tell you everything about standard chord grips . 38. 4.10 Standard Piano Chord Grips: I always looking to less than 4.10 of the ultimate piano course Right now, I'm going to share you the secret of standard court grips. What does that mean? While basically it means that I'm gonna be talking about the Roy Tam. Predominantly? No. We have a couple of grips. Even though there's more than 100 of courts weigh more than 100 of chords, a lot of them actually look a lot alike. If we, for instance, have a little right here, this one looks a lot like this one. This'll this'll this'll this'll one and even this one right here. It doesn't mean that the same one, of course, because we have major or minor minor major Bangor mourner who this is diminished on, then major again. OK, but that doesn't matter. All I care about is how your fingers feeling the piano. And when we look at that, it's exactly the same. Okay? Because we on every core right here with good two notes in between. So that's what I like to call a standard chord grip on. If you get used in this, Andi put that in your system and played like a lot of times your unconscious will get used to this kind of grip. Okay, Another one of these standard core groups. Is this one right here? Okay, because we have a right here. We have the same shape here. We have the same kind of shape here, here, even here who that is in a Norman it court everywhere. But also here, the dimensions, this one before on then here again, of course. So right there, even there. Okay, even there. And it's so Stephen there, that's a little bit off, because the Black Knight you can kind of get away with that. I'm right here. Here. So these are all kind of the same grips. Okay, You can get really used to that. Then there's another one. This one right here. Okay. You can play it here. Played here. Um, let's see playing here, playing here, even playing here, OK? They are all kind of the same grip. There, there, there. They're Vera que on by playing thes, but basically layering them on top of each other instead of playing five different chords. It's basically the same kind of court. Even then, the grip varies a little bit, right there. Of course. More than what I did right here. Thea idea is the same. Okay, there's another ones. Ones that go this way. Right here. Okay. Okay. This also looks a lot like this thing. We have groups like this one on this one. There's not that many of the going on because you get into the augmented Rome there. But anyway, standard grip, since well, right here. Then we have this one on this one. They're a little bit different than the other ones. We have a lot of grips like this one. Okay, Right here. Here, here, here, here, there. Almost a love. Them are always the same. Okay, of course we ever saw us grips right here and then here on dhere. Okay, so there's a lot of these grips which are not unique to one court. They're actually re occurring in other courts as well. Right here. It's always the same. Is this? It's looking a lot like this. And this and this this'll on. If you can get used to the idea that it's not just 100 85 courts or however many chords there or that we regularly used, then you can actually start identifying these ribs a lot sooner, okay? And the more you play them eyes this, for instance, is also quite a standard grip right here. Okay, the other way. The other way around here, here, the more that you get used to the fact that we actually play the same sort of grips all the time on the piano, the faster you'll be able to pick that up. Okay, so when you're unconscious to register that mainly that almost all of these grips kind of liquor, like we have, like, seven or eight different shapes. But apart from very menu differences, they're all the same. So from how we're going to head home see less than 4.11 the test of section four. 39. 5.1 Intro to Combining Hands: Hi, guys. Welcome to section five of the ultimate piano course. Right now I'm gonna be teaching you to think that, miss, if you wanna learn so damn badly combining your left android hand together so you can actually play all of these amazing songs. Now, I just want to talk you through We're going to do in this'll section of the course. Basically, I'm going to use a couple of songs as examples on practice himself. With that, I'm going to show you some different examples here and there and show you how I combined my left and my right hand. I'm also gonna give you some basic tips on good morning. The left in Reuters that you may not have thought about on. I'm also gonna explain at which moment you want to combine your left your right hand because a lot of people just don't know when to start combining. So what explains that? First of all, want to talk a little bit of back combining the left and the right hand? You see, I really like magic. All kind of magic card, magic show magic. It's all really cool. And in the past, I've purchased some magic tricks and the waiter works is you purchase a trick online, you get a video and they demonstrate how the trick works. And then at home, you can actually do it yourself. And somewhere I was always hoping that they would just say, Leak. It's not a trick. It's really, you know, like if you do this and that, then this will actually happen. It's not a trick, it's magic, but unfortunately it never. Wasit was always just a trick on if you did trick than it would appear it like magic. Now, unfortunately, with combining left and right, it's exactly the opposite. You think that there is a trick to it on when you do that trick like magic, it will come together and work. Actually, combining left and right is true magic, so it's not a trick. It's a click on at the moment that it clicks. It will become true magic for you because you're watch your hands moving on the piano, almost as if by themselves. That's really weird. So the main issue here is that we as human beings, especially guys as you know, have a lot of difficulty focusing on two things at the same time, Okay, focusing on two things at the same time. It's gonna stuff way. Have to draw a square with one finger and then do a circle with the other one. Like air. I also really cannot do it. It's just really difficult stuff is this kind of thing, you know, and that's just the way it's going to be. But as you're going to find out in the next lesson, there is actually a way to store stuff in your muscle memory, and that is going to help you, because that will mean you will only have to focus on one hand at a time. One of the other things you can do this instead of focusing on your right end of whole time and playing your left automatically or focusing on the left and playing the right automatically, you can actually switch between hands really quick now than when that requires your attention. So you're going to see that as well. And apart from that, if you do happen to have a driver's license, I don't know if you've been driving for quite some time. I assume you may have been, especially if you're like me from Europe. We drive all of the course with a stick with a manual. Okay, I know in the States and in Australia and in some other countries, a lot, of course, have automatics. But if you drive a manual, you have to do to clutch with your food and your break and your gas battle with the other food, and then you have to do the stick and you have to steer. You have to which all the mirrors that so much stuff going wrong. And probably by the time right now, if you've been driving for a couple of years, you're having a chat with your friends. You're looking at buildings, you're doing all kind of stuff, and you're not really focusing on driving. As a matter of fact, sometimes you'll arrive at home and you think, Oh, my God, I can't remember the last 20 minutes of driving like did I even stop for the red lights and all that kind of stuff? What happened at that moment issue were kind of in a little trance, as we might say. OK, and when you play piano in the hands start to bland, you also go into a little light trance, a little meditative state where you will see your hands moving. But you're not really thinking about it anymore on the hands US move and they don't even seem to be your hands. So if you can get through that site, it's really cool, cause you can actually enjoy listening and watching yourself played a piano. Now this will only happen with a lot of repetition and with Southern gonna explain in the next lesson. So if you want to learn more about that, make sure to have a look at the next lesson at which we're going to talk about unconscious and conscious levels off alone. 40. 5.2 '4 Levels of Learning': Hi, guys. Looking to lessen 5.2 right now I want to talk to you about unconscious and conscious levels off learning. Basically, we have a conscious mind with whom we're focusing constantly on if you don't believe you have an unconscious mind. Well, I hate to break it to you, but you do on the unconscious mind regulates stuff like your breathing. And yes, you can interrupt your breathing if you want to. Just don't breath for a little while and you will interrupt that it's helping you to blink the eyes. And yes, again, we can keep the eyes open if you want to for a long time, and I will start to hurt. But yes, you can interrupt it. But there's also stuff that your unconscious is doing, like regulating the amount of sweat you produce. Your blood pressure, your the whole digestive system. Okay. It's not like it's sitting on the cash. You gotta come. Yeah, I'm gonna ask one stomach to maybe use, um fluids and start digesting my food. No, that'll happens. Boy itself. Okay. Regulate your breathing when you're sleeping, and it takes you through the different stages of sleeping. It's also the part that makes your eyes close When somebody is actually trying to put their fingers in your eyes, That is your unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind is constantly doing all kind of stuff in the background. Ever work. So if we know that it might actually be cool to store some of the information of a song they were playing in the unconscious mind so we don't have to consciously focus on it. And that's exactly what we're gonna do in this episode in this lesson. Okay, So what? I want your unconscious now it to do is to pay specific attention to this lesson because I'm going to tell it had to store all of the information. So you're going to be able to learn lessons a lot quicker whenever you use this method. And even if you don't, your unconscious now will start to understand how to do it. So even if your conscious mind is being a bit thick, your unconscious can start to pick up these kind of things, Coop. Okay, so want to talk to you about the four levels of learning? Basically, whenever we learn a task, we have four different levels on Let's put them on the screen right here. We've got unconscious incompetence. We've got unconscious incompetence, conscious incompetence, conscious competence and unconscious competence. Again unconscious incompetence of means that if you're not paying attention to it, you cannot even do it. Okay, But you don't even know what it is. Whatever you want to do, so you simply cannot do it. Then we have conscious incompetence that this is a situation where a lot of people are in when they're consciously trying to do something. Okay, when they're consciously trying to shoot a basketball through a hoop, they're not able to do it. Okay, if there unconsciously trying to do that like that, just doing something else in there, throwing a basketball, I'm not even thinking about it. Then usually there won't be able to do it. But if you're consciously paying attention to the ball, you look at the Nat, you throw it on of Mrs all the time. That means you're consciously incompetent. Even when you're paying conscious attention. Not constant, but conscious attention to it. You're not able to make that shot. Then we go into conscious competence. Okay, The next level a level where a lot of people get stuck at it means if you're really paying attention, if you're conscious with that ball and with that hoop and you throw it, you're able to put it in OK, if your conscious you're able to do it, maybe not every time. But I love the time you, but a lot of the times you are, that means the way of starting to play a game. Andi stuff happens and you're trying to focus consciously, and it gets really hard. You're not able to make that shot. Okay? And then above that unconscious competence means that even if you know paying attention like maybe you're paying attention to the defense of just somebody coming in, you're able to shoot that ball through the hoop. OK, unconscious competence is where we want to get. It's where most people say it takes you 10,000 hours balloon something. OK, that's the level of unconscious competence. I didn't think it has to take that long at all. It definitely didn't take me 10,000 hours to learn like a specific piano song by Jack. It's going to take a couple of hours for you to be able to play a lot of piano pieces. Of course. Now why is it important to know of these four levels? Basically, it is important because when you make that switch between consciously competent and unconsciously competent, which means paying attention to the peace and being able to play it and then not having to pay attention anymore but being still being able to play it like maybe even order a coffee . In the meantime, OK, whilst your hands will just continue right in between, there is where you wanna start, combining your hands. Okay, so that means that if you figured out the left hand a little bit and you figured out the roid hand a little bit, you're not gonna wanna play them perfectly before you put them together. A lot of people in practice, that left hand, perfect thing, that right hand perfect, and then they fit them together. The problem is that the molding, the blending part, has already happened. Okay, It's like if you take an ANC, you put the AG white on one side and the yoke on the other side. Then you begged them separately, and then you try to put them in anomalous. It's not gonna work, OK, they've been baked their solid right now, they're not going to change anymore. Or do you want to do is have the AG and mix it and then purred in the pan and bake it into one solid amulet, if that makes sense, okay, You're paying conscious attention to the left hand. Your pain quenches attention to the right hand. And when you do so, one of the time, you're able to play it like half the times harder times, 3/4 of the times you're able to play it, but you're not able to play it every single time. Okay, sometimes you still mess up. That's the exact moment when you want to start blending them and when you want to start putting them together. Now, of course, this means that you will drop again. Okay, your success rate will drop. So if you have been able to do two out of three times, two out of three times separately, then put them together, you drop back dancing, maybe one out of 10 okay. And this can be very frustrating, but this is the point. You wanted to feel couple of times together, right? Because then you can start to learn how to actually played together. The new connections in the brain will be made with the two hands together and not the two hands separately. So if we have a look at the piano, let me demonstrate something right here. So maybe I want to play river flows in you That a little bit right there. Okay, Now, if I'm practicing, I know that I have to play this on this with the left hand. Okay? With Roy. Have to play. Okay, Now, maybe I'm quite OK on the piano and I can play that all in one. Go. That's absolutely fine. What it would then do is just give it a go. Okay? And okay, that's okay. And then just put them together and you're done. OK? But it's also possible that you know that experience yet, so you may want to focus on left, okay? And sent on road. Wait, wait. There are go. Ok, then, when you've done that, a couple of times should be okay. I managed it that song to put it together. So then you're gonna wait that they don't work? Wait together. Okay. And then you want to build it in like that. Okay, So you're not gonna do this until the end of day until you go there. Perfect. And then do this because it will For always be two separate things in your hat. Okay. When you blend them, you wanted to be one piece, one armload. Okay, not for the next bid. So you want to go right here? Maybe. No. There. All right. Okay. So maybe you you can't get it, But you have to think about it a little or here. Okay. And some for the Roy NGO. No, wait, no, etcetera, etcetera. You get the point. OK, I'm basically faking it a bit here, of course, but that's what you want to do. You want to be struggling a little bit then when you get it, I'm even having trouble because I only noted when I play lesson right together, okay? Because I made an omelette out of it. I cannot play it just in the right hand. So that's really frustrating to me. Oh, I don't know. OK, anyway, when you them play together, you can then start to merge that. And if you make a couple of mistakes, that's fine. Because when you will get that click, left and right will be together and your blood will be formed. I have your lawyers, that metaphor for now. I want to move on to the next lesson where we're going to show you how to practice that left hand up to the level that you're ready to combining with, right? And then the lesson. After that, I'm going to demonstrate how you want to practice your Roy hand so that it's ready to be combined with the left. Does that make sense? Let's head over to less than 5.3 left first. 41. 5.3 Start with Left: I go is looking to lessen 5.3 left first. Now, basically, in this lesson, I want to demonstrate a little bit of seven. I have to be very careful because in the previous lesson I explain to you that I don't really like the idea of learning left and ride separately all the way, OK? Because you're gonna have to stop at a such a moment and blend them together. So I want to just say this one side enough to repeat it for rest of the lesson. This lesson is demonstrating to you how to learn your left hand up to about 75%. Okay? And if you take it all the way, if you want. If you want perfection, allies, your left hand, I'm no. If that's a word but kind of science. Cool. If you want a perfect analyze your left hand, you're gonna have trouble getting their Roy handed. Okay, So learn left until you kind of knew it and then move on with right and then blend them together. As I was saying in the previous lesson, okay, But anyway, if you're gonna learn laughed, here's a couple of tricks, so I hope you watched the court lessons. Okay, Especially five courts. Ah, lot of the time. Like if I take the example of river flows in you, the left hand will be doing this. Um, okay. Which are basically five courts with a little sidestep here and there. Okay, look, there's a difference between learning with your hands on learning with your head. Okay, In the beginning, you're gonna have to pay that conscious attention, and the later your unconscious will kick in and it will store stuff in your muscle memory, as we might cite. Okay, The muscle memory simply means that you've been doing something so many times that it's stored in there. Okay, we're opening a door. You're not really thinking about grabbing that handle and turning it and opening it. Now you're just opening that door. When you're walking around your house at night, you you're able to find the light switch is quite easily because you simply know about where they are. A lot of times, when you're going out of bad at night, you don't fall down the stairs because you kind of realize where everything is and has the same on the piano. But before You know that you're gonna have to actually learn that consciously with your mind paying attention to it. So how do you learn your left hand easily whilst looking at it? Because that's basically what we're gonna be doing. We're gonna be looking at that left hand. Well, in a lot of cases were actually going to be playing five courts. So this offers is f sharp. C sharp. F sharp is a part of river flows in You Okay on, If you have to learn all of these notes separately like this, um, on here, that is gonna be a big bit of a mess because she have to learn all of these notes separately. But if you look at them in court thin all of a sudden, it becomes a lot clearer right here on their can. A you might say, Mark, you played D A E. And then later on, Okay, I'm not gonna be able to reach that. But I played a c sharp. Yes, that's right. Sometimes, sometimes a composer changes the courts a little bit, but usually there's some kind of court to be found there. Okay, in a lot of the pop songs, you will find just the regular courts like a five court here. There, there, there. Okay, that makes it very easy. If you recognize the courts, all you have to do is remember the first note, for instance, or the last note or whatever you want to focus on. And then the rest of the hand will fall in the right grip. Remember, from this standard grips, the 5/4 is one of those standard grips. I just know the distance. So you only have to get one finger in the right position, and then you'll be able to play that quite easily. Now, for river flows, you were going to need a little bit more conscious attention because on the second and the third chord, we're not playing A Five Corp or actually playing something else. Okay, right here. That would be a decides to Okay, instead of a D five, like I'm playing the even on putting it up there So you would have to consciously make the decision to go from a five chord to this one of five corporate just a little bit further, Okay. And then right here, you have to consciously pay attention to that c sharp before continuing right there. Say, if it was just these courts, let's for let's, for example, say that it already scores. OK, you can just play a five course. That would happen with lots of these songs. Of course, I had to pick this one, which is a bad example. But, you know, it kind of works. So that means that I would just play these courts like this a couple of times on that it would sword walking them. Uh, okay. Now I may want to actually, before this guy gets into more system too much, I would put in the exemption. So right here, I would move up, okay? Or you could go here and then there. What? You're gonna have an issue right here? So play that and then here. Okay. So that left hand basically want to get a good mental on the standing off. Where to get, Uh uh, Okay. I'm also releasing my left pinky when I have to look, releasing your pinkie could enter and stretch this just simply as soon as you have that one . Released the pinky on plays that Okay, now I want you have the idea that you can. And it was going on. You have to start practicing that left, remember? But what I want you to do. So I want you to get to the conscious level of being able to close your eyes. Look at the piano and simply if you want, you can use those red lights that I use, but simply light of the keys of each court. Say so. Okay, I'm gonna play my first court. Or you could see your handle their like, See your hand on the piano. Okay, That's the 1st 1 You don't have to know what that called. Would you could, if you want to. 2nd 1 I have to go up to the C sharp and then this one. Okay, so you at least consciously know exactly what you play. Then what time you're gonna do that? You may have taken a little break in between or not, and that's enough. That means you've got your left hand down. And now it's time to move on to your right. I like to do my left hand first and then do the right because a basil of my lessons on the courts, the courts you can see above the piano. OK, that's what I like to do because it gives a lot of structure. And when you have the structure in the left hand, you know exactly where to proving. You're right. So that's the way I like to do it. You could also sort on right. That's absolutely fine. But remember, do not learn it all the way until it's perfect. Dean's hard time. It has to be a little off, even if the the notes are correct. But the tempo is just a little off. Doesn't matter. That's when you want to start blending it with left because she want their final plague to only happen when you're playing your hands together. Never when they're being played separately. Okay, so for now, let's move on to Lesson 5.4. I guess that's called then, right 42. 5.4 Then Play Right: hi goes, so goes the lesson 5.4. Then right, as you've been able to see in the previous couple of lessons and I really, really, really want advice you to which, especially at some 5.2, which is a little long. But it's really important that you understand that stuff also, because you're unconscious needs to pick up on the stuff that I'm explaining right there in less than five point to explain to you by the different levels. And then unless a 5.3 explains, you had to learn the left hand first. Okay, now I just want to say that, yes, there are different patterns that you could play in the left hand. Sometimes you're playing doctors right instead of this kind of stuff, but it doesn't really matter what you have to play. A lot of the times the left hand will provide you with the structure. So that's why we want to start right there and get you up to about 75%. Then you combine it with right. That's also up to 75. You drop down to 25 is in one in four times that will work and the rest that wound, and then you take it up again. Okay, so for Roid, let's stick with the river flows in you. We want to play this. Okay, So, basically in the right hand, we usually have to do with a lot more tempo kind of things. And also the notes. Whereas compared to left what? It just really nicely. Let's suppose there all five courses, they would go like this. You know, that's quite easy to play and ride with, spreading that we're going close and then all the way over here, them back and forth. So the roid hand is usually doing a little bit more delicate work than the left. Okay, Usually not always, but usually that's the case. So for right, you're gonna space a little bit more attention. So you know it. So again, you wanna learn these notes off by heart? Okay, I'm sorting here. Now, basically, in my mind, this is an a chord, Okay? Leaving at that e. But basically, I'm playing an a chord right here. A c shop and a okay, which makes it easier for me to remember. Okay, now, I went playing in a five. Okay, so again. I'm using these little tricks, these little courts to help me remember where to play. It's not just a random notice. It's not a coincidence that this isn't a on a five. Okay, in combination with that after making for a very noise half shell. Morning, 7/4. Okay, so a C shop, a G shop, a g shop A. Now I want to basically get familiar with this, because that's where we're gonna have to start. So I get that. And then I'm trying to find out my fingering, okay, My finger position So I could do this, but it's not really logical. So I'm trying to figure out what will be the most efficient way to play this with my ring thing Resort here. My film is still here. And then what I like to do is Allied to play with my point of finger. Okay, some people might do like this. That's absolutely fine. But I just like to play with nine point a finger. I'll move that over a bit. Okay. So I'm trying to figure out my where do I place my fingers? Okay. Just talking around a little bit on when I figured that out that I'm gonna play it very slowly. Um, I'm gonna cut the peace and half, so I would dio craze up until there, I'm only gonna played, like, two or three times a little bit, even if I don't really get it. Even if you go like you know, then, as I still want to continue on to the next one, because again, you want to have that blend in your droid and you don't wanna have to little parts that are not connecting because they don't get the same ideas with left and right, But now in your right hand so you be able to play this, and then you're like, Ooh, shit. What have do you know? Oh, on there. Too late. OK, so you're gonna practice our first bed a couple of times. Hopefully, you get it like this, but that basically depends on your level. Right? Has seen you in a pickup later on. You're gonna be quicker and quicker and quicker with this stuff. Okay, so let's say you played like this slowly. You really have to focus. I think about it to three. It's accounting it and then you go here and then here. Okay, so then you want to do so You get used to that. And now you want to get used to the lost Be right here to connect that to their. Okay, So you basically want to make this bland so that everything fits together. Okay, even if you played in this kind of rhythm, okay, then you want to solve working on the rhythm a little bit, so my order is to figure out the notes first on, Then I want to figure out my finger position so I might even go like this. Just so I know. Just have a mental picture. That's my strategy. Okay? I have a mental picture and an auditory thing. Like I can kind of hear how it's going right now. So I have those, too, and then I want to practice a little bit that I want to practice the next bid. Okay, then I want to start linking, and then I want to stop paying a lot of attention to the rhythm. That was Sue Lights, and I have to do it again. That one senate. Okay, so now that I've don't that I'm actually ready to blender with left. Okay. And that's when you get the massacre. That's when everything is going to go to shit some bits. If you're lucky, you get something like that. Okay. And then you go. Okay, Wait. Thes two first event together right here, because you have to figure out Wednesday, play together. I want us before that one. OK? Okay. Something like that on. Basically what you want to do right now is be very patient when you put them together. I'm gonna talk to you about that. They were in the next lesson, blending left and right. 43. 5.5 Blending Left & Right: Hi, guys. Organs the lesson 5.5 blending left hemorrhoids. I hope you saw the previous lessons. 5.123 and four is really important that you do before watching this one. Okay? No skipping. If you do, you might actually do more damage than good. So make sure to have back if you haven't seen the other ones yet. I want to talk about blending your left and your right hand a case. And I were basically good. Pretty good on the signing of what's playing left. Uh, we have a conscious representation of that either in the form off what you're hearing. So you're hearing the notes, but we have a picture right there. Or even if you want to do it by feeling the keys, Okay. By noon, where to? Place your hands. That's absolutely fine. Us? Well, okay, So why do you have a grasp on it, where you can see where you can listen to it in your hand, That's all. Fine. Same for a ride. Now, warning Do is before we played perfect in both hands is blended. Okay, that sometimes it goes a little bit quick. You might notice that song is quite easy to play for you. It's maybe not easy to remember or to all play add ones, But it's easy to play. Then what I would just do is just always play together, like just starts instead of doing left android. You just go like left. Has to be kind of here and right ages through something lies that Okay, that's absolutely fine. Well, basically, we want to be a their point where you're not gonna be able to play perfectly with two hands yet. Okay, So what you need to do then, is slew down. Relax, slow down. This is going to be a bit of a situation where usually you get frustrated. Slowdown, play it slowly and try and play it as perfectly as possible. Not the temple, but at least the matching. Okay, so what you do, she played, like, extremely slaves. You have Teoh. Sometimes that makes it harder. Okay, But sometimes now, this is also the moment where if you figure out that you made a little mistake, you can sue corrected it. Okay, so maybe you forgot a note on the right hand and a notably left found This will be the times it with the men right here. Okay, so go slow here. On here. Okay. Now, I just made a little mistake, and that's absolutely form, because that's the face where ring were No playing this song correctly yet. Okay, we're trying to blend the right here, so give again. Even slower. Okay? Not for somebody like me. I'm mainly played the piano by hearing okay, I get feedback or literally, and then I adjust. Based on that, it's very difficult to play really slow because because basically, I lose all sense of rhythm and it's it's just like, Okay, I kind of lost that, OK, but if you're somebody is very visual and you would put a blindfold on, then you're gonna have a lot of trouble to be walking erect, argue. So it's that kind of idea. But then for a sounds for me on the piano of a place slow, I kind of lose where I am on that. It's really difficult for me to keep it up. And then when I hear Rebecca go like, oh, shit, that was very bad. So for me, it actually doesn't always help to play it slow. Except if I really look at the piano, so I have to play it so slow that I can watch both my left android hands at the same time. So look back and forth, okay? Doing and like that. So sometimes it's actually get to speed it up a little bit on feel okay. Now, what are they wanted to do is to get up to this speed before you're actually able to do that. Okay, Okay. Making little mistake right there. That's that's an issue, K. So they have to slow down. Okay, that's signing quite a ride. So what I want to do is to play with this. Always thought I'd slow if you feel you get it. Or if you feel you're going too slow, then speeded up quite a bit. If I'm going this slow, I'm having so much trouble really focusing and getting everything in on time, so I would pick it up a little bit. OK, but if you having trouble with your fingers with the finger placement that you might have to slow down. So what I want you to do so experiment. Not just now. But every time we're learning a new song with different speeds. Okay, sometimes it's helps even if you played quicker than the original song, so you can do that at the blending stage. If you missed side a couple of notes, you played anything that sounds really weird. Check it out again and this is the time to put the extra notes in before we actually lock it down. Because once you've been playing, there's a couple of times it will get sword in your muscle memory, whether you like it or not. And it's gonna be a little bit tricky together that Okay, so that's why it's very important to have the blinding sage make sure you know exactly what you do and play slow enough. So did you play the correct notes? And if you make a mistake, go back to the beginning. And sometimes if you make a mistake, continue on anyway. Okay, I'm gonna be talking to you a little bit more about that. In the next lesson. 5.6 basic pointers on combining 44. 5.6 Piano Playing Posture: I go, It's working. Cillessen 5.6. This is detail. I'd lesson This is the relaxation lesson. I'm sure you cannot see, But I'm I'm relaxed, man. Like this'll is the lesson where we're just gonna have a little chat, you and me. And we're going to talk a little bit about how you want to actually play piano. So I'm no expert on this because I am self tour. But I did have a couple of lessons. I'd like four or five piano lessons in my life on in the 1st 2 lessons, we mainly talked about posture. Okay, so ah, lot of pianists sit up straight in and they have their arms like this. I don't if you can see, but they have their arms like this. Shoulders, relax. Some people are really, like going like that, you know, during the hair toss when they're playing heavy metal on piano. I don't know for me, I noticed a lot that when I'm combining left and right, and I'm struggling and it's not really going well and I take a little step back sort of speak that my shoulders air here. Okay, I'm in a cramped position. Not really playing. Relax. My hands are like fish, you know, like Crampton's of at that time. It's a good moment, Teoh. Either take a break or just realize that you're being a little bit stressed and take it easy. Said at least drop their shoulders like Mato. Relax. The shoulders have to be completely relaxed and just hanging. OK? It's the arms that do the work. Shoulders have to be relaxed. Neck has to be noise and relax. If you got a stiff neck, ask somebody to give you a little massage or something. Okay. Have a little hot water with some lemon. Okay, take it easy. Because where you're playing like this, you're just It's impossible to get really nice sign of it out of the piano because you're playing in a cramped position. So you want to relax? Take it easy. Just chill out on. Make sure that all of the muscles right here are a smooth and relaxed. Okay. Same goes for the hands. You wanna have soft and relaxed hands. If you have dry hands, like right now, get some dry hands. You might use a moisturizer at night. This might be a little weird if you're a guy. You never done that before. I personally don't do because they don't get that droid. But if the droid they they're not a supple as they could be. So you might use a moisturizer in the winter when it's called. A lot of people show me warm up exercises on the piano. That's all cool if you want to do that. I actually made a video on that a couple of years ago. What I just do is, if I have cold hands, I draw a little bath for my hands, so I just, you know, in the sink or whatever. I put some hot water in there, and I know very hot. Okay? Like, yeah. Maybe maybe 36 of 37 degrees or whatever that is in Fahrenheit, if you calculating for an ID like body temperature. And I slowly put my hands in there or I put some ordering there. That's not cold. Neither heart put their hands in there and then put on the tap with some hot water to slowly rise the temperature in the in the sink. Okay. What that does is it makes my hands really nice and warm because in winter. Sometimes you really don't realize how cold your hands are, and it's very difficult to play with cold hands, so you always want to make sure your hands are warm. I saw one of these amazing Penis in the Netherlands, and he was having giving an interview and he was wearing gloves inside and they were like, Dude, why you're wearing gloves? Well, when I get home, I want to be able to play the piano and I don't want to do warm up exercises for 20 minutes . And I'm like, Dude, just put your hands in the sink with some hot water and always smooth as you ever want them to be, say that's a negative. I also want to give you some tips on how to actually put the left on the right hand together. If you make a mistake or an error, OK, what I want to do in the beginning is to just play through it and try and play through it. Except if you make that same mistake a couple of times because she don't want to miss sake to get locked into your system. Okay, so if you make the mistake once play through it. If you make it again, I would go back to the beginning. If you then make the mistake again, slow it down and see if you can get the mistake out. If you then would make the mistake again, I wouldn't go back all the way to the beginning. But I would actually pick another point because again, we don't want to keep him playing the same part because of who get locked into your muscle memory. So let's say you make a mistake right here. You play it hoops. You make them to save you. Just keep on playing. You played again. Hoops. You make the mistake again. You go back to the beginning. You slow it down way down, Okay, you play through it really slowly. If you would then still make a mistake. You go back, but not to the beginning. But, like maybe let's say here a couple of notes in front of it and slowly play that until you don't make that mistake anymore. Then go back to the beginning, played slowly. If you don't make it any more pickups and speed and played if you don't make that mistake again, doesn't matter. You just keep him playing. You did that for, like, maybe two times. If you're so maybe mistakes slowed down again and do the whole thing again. Okay, Basically, we want to keep the unconscious and the muscle memory guessing where we are so it doesn't lock it into place before it's actually good. I also wanted to have some fun when combining left or right. Play around a little bit, sometimes play a different tempo on purpose, just to fool around if you like. A This is fun. It doesn't sound like the actual song. We just played in a little bit of a different tempo before it's being locked in. But again, don't do that too often or with that other temper will get locked into your muscle memory case, exude once or twice and then continue on again. It's also very important to take breaks, take a break now and then, and also take a break from a song. If you've been working on a song for like a couple of these on, it doesn't really work. Pick a. Not a song to do in between so you can switch between songs. It's very useful to switch between songs with different keys. Okay, so if one of them is in C major, just playing all of the white keys, you may want to switch it up to playing an A flat key or something like that, a key with a lot of black notes in it. Hey, because she wanted to keep your hands guessing in the process, Way is still learning until they actually locks into place again. So that's just a couple of tips. If you're having trouble, let me know there's always the help button on the website, or you can contact me on Facebook or YouTube or wherever on I'll try to respond to you about. Since you're part of the course, I always want to make sure that you get a response as quickly as possible. So therefore, it's best to leave a message right here. You're going to the via Facebook or on the website, and I mentioned that you were part of the course that will always help for me to prioritize your question. So now we're going to head on to less than 5.7. We're going to give you a couple more pointers, and that will finish up 45. 5.7 Piano Combining Tips: I go is willing to lessen 5.7 of the ultimate piano course. I just want to give you a couple of ideas right here. So if you want a practice combining left android, you can do it with the easy lessons, the easy method with which is an octave in the left hand and accord in the Reut hand, that is one of the easiest things to practice. You don't really have to practice all the combining that much because you're just playing all this stuff together. And if not, you're basically drumming on the piano. The K If you're going to sort to do that, there will be the easiest for you on. I've got some practice lessons for you on YouTube. I've also got some practice lessons on PJM piano that come okay, there mainly going to be the same lessons. The benefit of PM piano. That calm is that you don't have an rt which through, and you can dilate the lessons to your voice so you can watch them offline whenever you want. And also you're supporting me into creating more of these lessons. Okay, but a lot of the lessons are available on YouTube for free as well, so you can check that out, check out the easy lessons in the beginning to start there and get used to playing. There's octaves to get with the courts, but you can also check out vocal or original lessons, which will have more of the intricate stuff going on in the right hand. Okay, in a vocalist on teaching the instrumental part in the left hand and the vocal line in the right and in the original lessons I'm teaching, you had to play an original piece like maybe, or a movie theme or something like that. I'm teaching how to actually play that on the piano Now. I wanted to do some of the practice songs Roy here in the cores, but actually, I think it's better if you pick your favorites because it's always nice to play a song that you actually like so you can do the river flows and use song that I showed you before. It's a little bit tricky to play if you've never played before, I would definitely advice to have a longer one of the easy lessons. First, I've got a playlist on YouTube with the Easy Monday lessons. They only consisted of four chords on that. It's really going to help you to practice that with just a couple of quarts, which is going to make it easy for you. For now, I want to move on to lesson 5.8. Keep in mind, you can always ask me questions. Vita bottom below the video on Facebook always mentioned that you're a part of the ultimate piano course on that will always help to get a quick response him. But for now, I want to go to the test where I'm just gonna test if you actually know exactly what you have to do when you're combining your left and right. 46. 6.1 Learn 1 Song Per Day: Hi, guys. Welcome to lessen 6.1 of the ultimate piano. Of course, in this section I'm going to learn you how I learned a new song every single day. This is the main section that gave me the idea to create this course. So I really hope you're gonna like it. As always, if you have any questions at all, make sure to message me. You can do that on facebook dot com slash pjm piano or violin below the video. But for now, I want to start explaining you had his work. So basically the reason I'm able to learn all these songs quick and let me clarify this for UK. There's a couple of levels that you could do. You could say an easy lesson in easy lesson. All that I'm doing is playing chords hemorrhoid hand on doctors in the left. Okay, that is quite easy to do on. You will be able to learn a new song like that every single day. If you have the basic piano skills of playing that octave and playing the courts. Okay. And you can practice that in the previous couple of sections. Combine that with my easy lessons, you'll be able to learn a new song every single day. Okay, however, it would also be cool if you can learn a new vocal song, every single A, which is where we played the instrumental part in the left hand and a focal on in the right . That is, of course, a little bit more difficult than just pounding at these courts. Okay, then it's also possible to learn a new original lesson, and this is kind of depending on your level. If you get a good level of playing, you'll be able to do that. And especially if you listen to pop songs and songs on the radio, that's gonna be relatively easy to do because all of these songs have basic or progressions , and that makes it just so much easier to do. OK, then, if you get to that next level, you'll be able to play classical music, blah, blah, blah, blah. So I basically want to focus on the vocal lessons in the pop music area. OK, so all of these songs you hear on the radio, whether it's rock or pop or R and B or doesn't matter, like all these kind of songs that you would like to play on the piano. How do you learn a new song like that? Every single bite. Now, this doesn't mean that you have to learn new song every single day. It simply means if you acquire these skills, you can learn a new song very quick. That's basically my goal to make you play a lot of songs, and then you can pick the songs you like and practice them a little bit more. So what I'm gonna teach you here is what I actually do when I have to learn a new song in order to create a lesson for you guys. And it's very easy. Basically, we can have a look at a frame. I'm going to put the frame up right here. You have sections of the song so you could have an intro. Aversa, Courage and maybe a bridge. It doesn't really matter if this is exactly what is in the song. OK, it could just have a verse and a chorus and a verse and a chorus. It could have an intro. Precor is and then a version that the not lovers. But let's just keep it simple. Let's just say there's four sections to this song you have to learn, which is intro verse, chorus, Umbridge. Okay, then, for all of these four sections, you're gonna have to learn four things. Okay, so you only have to learn 16 things in total. If you have a song that has this layout, first of all, you need to know which key the song is being played in. Okay, you don't need to know the name of the key, but you actually need to know all of the notes in there. Remember when I said every song comes this side of seven, it's only or most of the songs do. So you need to find a seventies. Okay, The second thing you have to do she have to find out which courts are being played on, in which core progression. Okay, So which courts which order? You have to figure that out. How long you have to play each court. The third thing you have to do is if you want to play an easy lesson. So you're playing the courts in the roid and you want to find the inversions. And if you're not playing an easy lesson, if you play an original lesson or a vocal, and you want to play a parent in the left hand that you're gonna have to figure out the parent for the left. So the third thing to figure out is the pattern for the left hand. Or if you're playing the court in the right, the inversion and the fourth thing you have to find out is if you're playing an easy lesson , the pattern for the roid hand, okay, because the left hand is gonna be obvious. You just play those octaves so you have a name version in your right hand and 90 to 90 pattern. Or, if you're playing a vocal lesson, you're gonna have to figure out the electrics that you're playing in the right. Okay, so you could basically sum it up, learned a key, the core progression, the left hand and the right hand high. That's also how you could sum it up. So let me give you a quick example. Roy here, off a song that was playing before apologize. But one republic, we have these courts. Okay? And I'm going to show you later high know that we have these courts. Don't worry, that will be fine, but we have these courts, so I can simply figure out the key like this, which might confuse you because I just said that the second step is to figure out the courts. Right. Well, I'm going to demonstrate to you how I do this all at once right now. But later on, I'll chop it down. Okay? No de cords off a song. I can simply play these courts and figure out the key. Okay, so we have these and then right here. Okay. Here, there. That means that I'm playing FIS. Note. This'll one with this one. This one, This one, This one and this one. Okay, that is a key that I'm playing in. All of the other notes will sound. I came. So this'll sands cord noise. And it has all of the notes e flat, F G a flat, B flat, C, D and e flat. Okay, there it could be an e flat, major. Okay, I don't have to know the name of the key, but at least now I know that all of these notes are a safe, so that's important to know whenever you want to learn a song because now you know which notes to play on which not to play Thes are saved, the other ones aren't. Then you have to figure out the courts. I already knew the courts for this song, so it's quite easy on again. I'm going to demonstrate to you how to do that later. So just sit tight. But I would need to figure out the court. These are courts, okay? And I basically I can already play is in a basic setting a case after seven until you can already play it. Then if I want to play an easy list and I have to find out the inversions, if I wouldn't be doing that, I would be playing the courts like this. Okay, on. That's correct. Now already knew the correct inversion because I just told the lessons. So that's easy. I put on the right inversion, and now all I need is the pattern on Don't ever want to play the easy lesson. The easy. Wait. Okay. If I want to play a vocal version, I have to figure out the lyrics. Okay. Again, Again, again. I know I'm going very, very quick, but I'm just demonstrating a little bit in the intra right here on Alex. And I will take the whole of the rest of this section to explain to you what I'm doing, OK, but these are the steps I find out the key. I find the courts. Then when I wanted to play in an easy way, I find out the correct inversions and the pattern and I was done. I could already play Yes, for the vocal version. Had to figure out a better for the left hands. And I chose a very basic pattern right here and then for the right hand. I was just playing these livers. Okay, like that. I'm going to demonstrate to you had to do that later. But for now, this was the introduction. Now, you kind of have an idea of how I actually build a lesson up like that. What's very important to remember is that I'm basically creating my own little Mcflurry or whatever in a like your your Sunday or your favorite ice cream, right? You put in a little bit of ice cream and put on some top hang some whipped cream or whatever. You can basically make the whole thing yourself. You can make it your own version because you're doing that left hand. You're doing that right hand separately, right? You're discovering them and you're trying to figure out the way you like to play it on thing. I put that Okay, so I don't really teach from sheet music anymore. I just crab the courts. I listen to these songs and I play the lyrics. Onda. That's it. That's how I make my lessons. So now the challenge is up to you in this coming section to learn how to do that. And I'm going to help you all the way through. Let's move on to Lesson 6.2. 47. 6.2 Findig Piano Keys & Chords: boy, did we go quick in the previous lesson? Right now, you're in less than 6.2. I'm going to show you a couple of ways to figure out how to find the key of the song and the courts. Okay, for me, the easiest way to find the key. It's a listen to this song and then just play along with the lyrics a little bit. So for this song, it's I'm holding on your rope. Give me 10 feet of the ground holding on your rope Got me 10 feet off the ground. Okay, so then I would know that at least these notes are in here. OK, So actually, one of the easiest ways to find the key is to find the court's first. I know that's in rivers, but basically there's some overlap between this section and the play by ear section. I don't know if you're very good at playing by air. Like if you listen to somebody sing, would you be able to mimic that on the piano? Yes or no? And if you know that my basic strategy wouldn't really work, So I'm gonna teach you something else, just to be sure And then, if you want to learn to play by air version, we're gonna have that in the play by your section. That makes sense. So the reason I want you to find a key first is that you actually know all of the notes that are in the song on which notes to play on which night you can choose from. On which note you should not choose from one playing. Okay, now, of course, depending on this song, sometimes the key can change, and sometimes that can be special notes in there. But let's just say the majority of the song has just seven notes, as always. Okay, so it's our job to find their seven. It's so the first thing you have to do if you want to use more basic tactic is to find the courts because the courts will holding notes of the keep. You can also do the other way around, find the key and then use that to find it course. But I find it easier to find the court's first Okay, a couple ways to do that. You can listen to the song to the base notes and then find a course like that or you can cheat, which is what I love to do. You are lofty cheat when it comes to learning new songs very easy. You go to Google, you type in your song and then behind that, you type in courts. Okay, so let me demonstrate. You will. That looks like OK, guys. So let me show you how that works. You simply go to Google. And you, for instance, type in, let's say umbrella by Rhianna and then you type courts. Okay, Now knighted Asian cities sores here, which is really nice A C versions, version five version to you and you don't know what version that is because you haven't clicked on that yet, So you're going to check it out now? Usually, if you see thes these harder courts, that's an indication that it might be the correct key. Not always there. So the first thing I always look for is here. Kapo first frat. If it says that it means that it's definitely not the original key because this Kapo on the guitar is actually changing the way to guitar sounds. It basically means that all of these courts are wrong. However, the core progression could be correct. OK, so this is at least a good indication now. You can also see that right here, yet have Major C E Mourner and a minor, and that will repeat. And then you could see f c g a minor. So now you know that the verse is a little different than the chorus. You can also see if there's a bridge here. They call it the middle eight. Luke. There's a B Flat Rider FCC, so that's definitely different. And that we have an outro which is the same as the verse. So we want to search for another one. Let's see this one. Okay, here you see completely different ones. A Mourners Si g n f. Now there's no Kapo notice here, so it could be the correct courts, but still, that's no guarantee you case India section of transposing I will talk more about that. We have version two as well F c e a minor. So we can also try a different version This one right here. And as you will see, this one is up now, right here on the interlude. That's a little bit different on. And then we have the bridge. We see these same courts right here as on the first version. Okay, so that's how I cheat are basically find out these courts right on. Then I check right here on the kapo. It you know, it's not good. So you even have the transpose buttons. So you can just you can change them like this, right? And all of the courts will actually change, So you can use that as well. If you have to transpose a song, you don't have to do it manually. It's actually this is a real like this, this web
