1. Promo: what for way. - And I play the piano. But I'm not really good at writing as you called me. Noticed. So I hope you didn't listen too closely to what I was saying over there. So what is this school is gonna be about? I've played the piano and I hope you want to learn to play that too. On. If you want to like your own self, start writing your own songs on the piano. I don't really don't have a start. So maybe you have a keyboard or maybe have a no piano or electric piano at home on. You want to get started with somebody? You really like the sound of the piano. You want to play along as you sing a song, Right? Um and you don't know how to do it. So this is what I will teach you. Hear what? I will not teach you its lyrics that your company might have noticed. I'm not the best lyrical person. I'm not the most into this. I do know how how to play this on. Basically, I want to get your study will talk about basic course. So that's a title right off the course. you have four basic courts. Basically, you can play different stuff that you can't change up the order. You can use three off before cords, anything you want, and it will always sound great. Salt each of those four coins I'll go into style it up so you can go and play something really, really sad and like that. So let's go to basically for anyone and beginning who maybe doesn't all the piano. Maybe you're doing a lot of cattle, but you want toe know how to use what you can do all the piano already to get started writing a stop. So this is not just for beginners. Find this for anyone who's interested. So if you've only played classical before the piano, you can skip the theory part on how play these chords and you can just go right ahead into the some theory. That's basically it. If you If you like the preview and gave you their lyrics and singing skills one to craft, feel free to join the course. I'm happy to see you there. Okay, 2. 1.1 Introduction: a little there will come to your first lesson. So this on a quick introduction, we'll talk about how we're gonna go about this, so you might wonder. Okay, so I want to take this how it's gonna work. Basically, we first talk about how pop songs work, right? So we'll talk about pop songs. Only you can change it up into something different. But Tony speaking with talking pop songs, we're talking about how Pops almost are built. Uh, how they are right now. Maybe they are simply than you might think. Andi, how you can, uh, how you can use thes structures in pop songs to go pops up. We'll also give you some. Also give you some example sums off self to use this feature on the system on. Maybe that will give you an idea off. Really help. Pop songs are written and how simple they really all. So that stuff like chain smokers Taylor's with Bruno Mars stuff like that. You know, this kind of stuff is what you will learn to be able to play here. Um and that's basically it about myself if you haven't seen the problem here already. When I was kind when I'm currently 23 23 years old, and I've been playing the piano for a long time, maybe 15 16 years now on. I specialize in playing, but you're so I specialize in playing sums. You're such a stuff like that, and you can basically use the system I used to pay by here to comfort yourself, minus the melody. That's difficult. You know, Maybe you don't want to play that you're gonna sing it and, you know, play the entire thing on the That's playing by year is right tell you play the entire thing on the couch. So you want to use the systems here to accompany yourself to buy your own song, or maybe to play a song that falls within this system. You can't do that. So that's where I came from. I also played classical, so I started out classical, and then at some point I discovered that I wanted to play something more modern on. Then, after a couple of songs which I tried to figure out on my own, I discovered how hey, they're all the same, pretty much basically that he was the same course, just a different order using these four chords, you can play pretty much anything, right? So that's why I'm teaching exactly these four chords. You might have seen this somewhere already. Uh, yes, that's pretty much at all about me. Um, so about how we're gonna do this. And I said, We'll talk about the pop songs, how they work and how they're very similar on Do some example songs that will go into the forecourt schoolteacher exactly how to play them. I'll teach you the different ways of paying them on. Then we'll go into court. Progressions for progressions is basically the order. You play these courses way, change the order, going to specific common orders for you to play around with, and in the end, I'll talk about you can actually lyrics on the fly. So while you have maybe decided all a certain progression, you want to add lyrics on the fly. Or maybe you've written lyrics before and you just want something to company yourself with them. That's totally fine, too. Then you can skip over that part on Ben a quick recap, and that's basically it. Okay, so I'll see you in the next lesson. 3. 1.2 Pop Songs are Simpler Than you Think!: pops ups are simple. Then you think Let me show you help. Okay, so Ellie is the same folk awards in the same order, and I will try to place many songs on them as possible and you can see and guess what they are. Okay, - way right. There's even more weight. So basically, what I'm trying to say is we're trying to show you is that post songs use the same four courts. That's reason why we're doing this. That's the reason why I will teach you these four chords on You can change up the order and basically paid a zillion songs, which which exists already if you want to cover them, right. And you can also use the same four chords to play your own stuff or create your own stuff. Uh, don't be surprised if it sounds similar to existing stuff. That's just the nature of it, like, but some You can definitely change up the way you play it and then make it sellable it for you. But that's how upset was written, right? So pretty much all the same. Okay, 4. 1.3 Example Songs: Okay, so that's not tough. Specifically about some socks. So you're in the early video. I showed you a couple of songs. You maybe know them. I don't know them, but I'm sure that some familiar on this tutorial some songs just to get your freshen up a little bit, which used this system. So let's start off with some three chord songs and I'm going some forecourt songs. So ah, three court, some would be chain smoker. It's right closer, For example, that's another record song will be Taylor Swift's 22 and we go into the standard full court song, for example, of the Mumps way. Maybe another very famous for Quite So maybe the most famous one is some of the most famous Curren's on classic forecourt and three court sauce on Uh, yeah, what? I just did. Uh, I hope my singing wasn't too terrible, but don't enjoy this little demo and no going to before course 5. 1.4 The 3 or 4 chord system: All right, So now we've turned up the perspective so you can see the case better, right? So we'll talk about the three and four court system and how we're gonna fight to name everything. We live in this course. Okay? This is very employed, and I'm sorry I have to do this, but it has to be done. Otherwise you won't understand what's going on. So basically, we only use four courts. Right? So you only need four members. Why numbers? Because we number our course in order, Teoh, be able to take up the order off the court progression. You need to know which course you can pay and which the number where the numbers are called . Right? And the numbers are completely made up, right? That makes sense. If you take See now, see in the middle Here, we call this one. Okay? So if we are in the key off, see here that C is one. And every other key is just another number up or down. Like so. If you take CS one in the key of C, if we're lucky, if d that d a several month, but we'll just do seeing for this moment. So cease one just go. 234567 back. So let's recap if we take the key of C that CS one and the news comes up 234567 Back toe up and the only numbers will need for full court. Off the court sums are 1564 Right, So one fun says, and four and the courts are gonna sound something like this in the DRC. The's other four ports in the key of C Basically a za bonus also teach you the four courts in a different. So in this case, some of you already know from KFC. So why not teacher? Just two more chords and, you know, pay another hole, Keep yeah, that basically and then eso recap the numbers 56 and four, right. You can use this number to play in any key you want, but as this is kind of a beginning, of course, for those who might not know how to play, the piano will only listen to keys. But if you already advanced on, you know, you know your keys, you know, records when you can just basically use the same number of system, the same numbers and played a key. Whatever. Whatever you want. All right, So 156 and four Cool. 6. 2.1 C-Major 1: now welcome to the core tutorials on the 1st 1 will do is where the cure see now Onda will do seem major. Probably the most common all Simples Well know what everyone called court there? ISS. So as you might remember one. Let's see if we are KFC. So seems out one. And the way you play a major chord issue take their base. Not this Gets it to C. C. Major, you take the fifth s basically you come up. 12345 techniques to antic three. So want thes two Thesis a C major chord right and you can move it down, right? Same stuff and notes in the C major court. See G and you can use your right hand to play those corners. Well, all these notes so C, e and G and you might, you know, notice that it's a piano keyboard Keys out with Peter's all over the place and go Seo, throw away the same stuff, right? And you can use the right hand in Paris sandals for practice. I'd probably recommend playing into exactly like, left like this. Remember, c g and C e o Andi, if you're feeling fancy you can. You can pay a different but as long as you can see e g notes, however, order you like it will some like So if I do this thing, do you? What I can do for this all looks so that's we kept peanuts you need in a C major chord R c e and e o think whatever you want, OK? 7. 2.2 G-Major 5: Let's move on to the next one. So we have one right? One. Let's see, let's go to the next one, which is 52345 is a G. In this case, we have a Jeep major, so it's gonna be very similar to the C major. Right? So you take the bass note, let's take best you here you take the fifth just like we did with C. So 1245 I'll be a D on you take the third in the middle. So 123 that makes up G major court on the notes are G B and jean way everyone. I said you can use the same three notes and pay them wherever you want. What right had as well. You can repeat them if you want to, uh, as well. So that's recaps Gene. And if I use my time at the state stuff g E de lower if you want to think this so basically , if you used three notes g, you can wait. Just having a bit of fun with it, okay, so that waas 8. 2.3 A-Minor 6: now for the next one way have six. So 156 So we have one will see, like 1234566 is a In this case, we have a minor, a minor, and it's gonna be very similar because we're only using White Keys, right? It's gonna feel exactly the same as the other course before it. So let's take the bass note A and we caught up to the fifth one, Teoh. 1234 5/5. That's E on. Take the third. So 123 C only one case. So that's your a minor right here. The notes are a C with the same stuff. We see the same stuff A so long as he used way. 1566 a minor. All right, that's well to the next one. 9. 2.4 F-Major 4: Okay, that's how last one, Uh, So we women. We have 15641564 That was a f. We have a major again and asked The floor is gonna be the same receiving. Right? So we take a bass note way, take the 5th 1234 to see and take the third. So 123 a f A exit. That's your f A. So as we kept 1564 was f major. And let's move on to the inversion. There's a scholar. Be fucked. It'd be a bit different. That's really okay. 10. 2.5 Inversions, Add9, 7ths: So how about getting to the interesting part? Right? So when we don't play records, anyone would play something. Versions, basically, Let's first have a look at what they are. How do we define convergence? Basically, if we take a court such as when the key of C that right? So the most common voted chord in the key of C is C and the G. So the one on the fight on the most innovative teaching pickles detect the one first C c major, You know what that WAAS see? E g basically inversion means instead of taking your bass note in this case C for C major, you play a different note as your bottom at los Eso. For example. In this case, if we move everything up one step basically and we play this note as our basement, so are Pinky's gonna be here. Do this s so that's our first inversion off a C major chord notes are still the same SSE major court just a different order. As long as you play the e Asser lower start a second version. What did you play the g? Ask your based on. So if we take notes off the C major chord, which will see e g. We can use each note and play each of them as the basement. Here, Bottom boat on Each of those represents a different inversion. So we have the base vista vision. That's what the on the bottom on we have. The second version, that's what the G on the bottom. So it's basically same stuff. Just sounds differently. Will be diversion of a secret. Now you might wonder, what context does this work? So if we basically take the core progression, let's do it. One. No first inversion off a C major you can see here way it sounds like a completely different court. OK, so we do the same thing for into the same thing for G g. Major. Okay, B and Bs are lower. Lower note here for Pinky Azzam, visually through the base G major. We used to fish division with our base will be with the same thing without bass. Note being the D e o. Okay, some more stuff at nine. Right, Adlan? What's that? That's, um adding even more color into it. So if you have, let's take Chelsea made right MP. If we count. Right? So 1234567 89 Okay, so this is the nine. Basically, you can play this to like this. I can also play. The 99 was basically a two people call it so 212 279 Same note if you pay all of them at the same time. So see, Major headline sounds pretty If you have your left him into it, that's what you Pretty much we kept. The nine is basically to You can also do this energy major. So this is a regular teenager, and this is a major city. Second people the way you can also take the realign Teoh, depending on what you wanted. Okay, Last thing seventh. That's gonna be really interesting. That's what's gonna make your playing some jazzy A bit emotional, a bit mysterious, as the name suggests is gonna be the seventh. Keep its right. So we take our c major? Actually, no, we do. It's only a minor. So, Mr Tutorial, if you apply your seventh court only do this in the minor one. So there's only one minor court we have here. Just a my right. If you do with a major chord that work and end up using back heats, and we are trying to avoid this year. That's a every count. 1234567 right? It's called 1/7 basically just a person basic. A minor at the seven way That's at the seventh key from the base of the 156 In this case, that's G. So for a month or someone that will be a Jesus seven. That's how it works. And if you play a chord progression now, the 156 or one what, the seven and with the animal in it. So with everything in it, it's going like this. I'm gonna pay simple so you can follow. So we have B. C at nine. Major G major. A minor seven way sounds really full, right? So I recommend playing around with those. But don't always play everything right. It's got a little bit too much on. Just have fun. Okay, 11. 3.1 G-Major 1: Okay, that's We're going to your next key here. Well, that was a different key. This if you want to use the black keys, I recommend doing this. If you want to get out of your comfort zone, I think some more chords basically some, of course, are the same. So for this 1st 1 we have G Major. If you want to learn how to play G Major, go to this. See section. Okay. And we'll straight on to the next one on this progression, which is a D major. We just knew that I'll teach you want on the G major, go to the sea. Key of C two throws allergy May dictatorial over there. 12. 3.2 D-Major 5: Okay, now we'll come to a D major chord. So in the key of G one is G five diesel. That's a G two for five. That's a deep major. How can play this? You take your do you hear? Cut up five. So five, take this on and then count Teoh 2.5 city too. 33 actually. So look a confused. I hope I didn't confuse over There s o A d A when you count up 123 straying off. Just ignore the house stuff. Just repent for the notes. OK, D half sorry. Way a song as you place these three, right? 13. 3.3 E-Minor 6: Okay, Here's the next new court, which is a minor. So we had one, which was G Way had five was deep. I have six, which is a minor. You might he way take 50 opposite also. 12345 on 3123 and e g. That's what you might e g and e e. OK, so that's 1566 is an e minor, which you can also play in seventh. What? I will teach you in the following total. Okay. 14. 3.4 C-Major 4: So the last one in the key of G. It's a C major, and you've learned that already, if you haven't, if you have seen the sea for court in the key of C two, are also discover there have a look at how to play the C major courts. A simple one. We're going to go. All right, so let's move on to someone versions. 15. 3.5 Inversions, Add9, 7ths: All right. So let's talk about the inversions in the key of G and asked before we have one. And five are the most commonly inverted ones, right? So you probably know inversions are if you don't go watch the inversions on Line seven tutorial over there on the key of C. So have off one which is a G major. And you can play the inversion like this using G used to be at the base. No way. That's be the geo for the first division. Second would be the so basically, you're just using a different basis. Okay, Next, once new eso won was G five waas d major D made a bit tricky because you need back, but it's the same procedure things your basic de maitre d f sharp A and the first version want me to use the F sharp as our base notes a deficit vision And now, if we use a Azari based wait a second wait base first version 2nd 2nd business A ask before . Same for notes, just using a different one off the three bass notes. So the shop and you can use any of these keys as the basis for reward at the bottom. Okay. And now for the 7th 1 Asai said previously, we're only gonna use the 7th 1 for our minor chords. In this case, that's gonna be 1566 hour E. Wait. Seven spaces. He knows how to count up to 71234567 seven. So, even a seven s e g b. That's your basic plus the seven. Just wait. That's basically all the cools off course you need to have some fun with, right. So in addition to the seven, we also have the at nine earlier, right? So you can add this to to the courts here, Teoh all of them if you want to. So in this case, we have G major, right? Do you made the same procedure? Imagine way you mind the Seventh Way have C major. I have night over there too. Just a quick recap. Because way already did this earlier in the previous key of C tutorials. All right, let's go to quote progressions 16. 4.1 1564: Okay, let's talk about the first calm progression. The most important one, the most commonly used one, Um, which is also known from Let it Be from the Beatles. 1564 Life your slot and you have a look at the number I put there. Find out the courts and the co editorials. You can see that it's CGF might see Major G Major a minor F major off the forecourt in the order I put them Major C Major Junior. Hey, my name Every major. If you add all the stuff in which I just said it's gonna sound like this, let's explore. You can go to Google and search type in 1564 songs and you'll have a list of zillion famous sauce using this court progression. Okay, that's the 1st 1 17. 4.2 6415: Okay, let's not talk about the 2nd 1 which is more commonly used today. The 1st 1 was very commonly used in there to thousands and nineties. But today, people commonly used this one. So it's basically the 1564 But you start with six. So 64156415 and the key of C it's gonna be a 6415 We start on the minor, a minor major C A minor major. If we take all the stuff way, everything. I really recommend you to have some fun with the stuff. I'm not here to teach you the rigid way of playing stuff. I'm giving you information. Needs to basically go crazy. Only he's all the ad nine step and all the stuff like that. Just have fun with it on, like figures do the work. Okay. 18. 4.3 4565: Okay, let's not talk about all 3rd 1 What's gonna be a three court? Hey, simple. Right on. Decide closer from chain smokers or any other chance number something for that matter. They only use same three course, releasable, um, it's gonna be. And if you have C e. Guess it. Major Major G major on back again. So, basically usual up, though. In terms off numbers, we have 4565565 for five cents. Five. You get the idea. Also, I'm on purpose not showing you how to do this in a cure, G, That's for you to have some fun. OK, just use the numbers. 456 way way. Also do play around with the rhythm I can teach you with what you have to figure out for, like, this Have too few hours. The rhythm on the dumpy stuff for yourself. Okay, 19. 4.4 1545: OK, do it. Let's do another three. Court 11 which we had a devil, which was Taylor Swift, 22 major. Okay, terrorists with 22 Really happy chord progression. You, if you want something said, maybe avoid this one. 20. 4.5 1645: Okay, that's the one next one, which is C major six uh Medio major. So 1645 great for sets off split 1645 sets off. 21. 4.6 Make your own chord progressions!: Okay, So here's your last lesson. Court on Corporations on the key. As I said, multiple times help you cut. That is to have fun with it. So I gave you some example corporations which you can use for biting stunts like 156464151545 Stuff like that use them as you wish about The key thing is using these four course to complete them in any order you want. It's gonna some great. So if we take the key of C now on the four courts were seeing a for any order we like and Houston versions. So remember, if I say 15 you can use the five version one on five g major like this. But if we used the inversion, which is using the base not as G, but asked B in this case, this was a major years. This be as your based on like this, right? If we use that instead, it's got so like this wager. It doesn't have to be as rigid as this so you can write a song and within the song changed it called progressions Very common. Let's start off with one, and I bet you have a different one on the course, you have another, different one, so you can use three corporations I wanted to do the same. Ology is everything you've learned inversions seventh at nights on the cords, national together. If it sounds good, it sounds good. You can use it. So don't think about doing something wrong. If you hear something that sounds off young, you'll hear it. Like if you just check everything based on the four chords, you're gonna have a blast because you have such a huge variety of stuff to play, okay? 22. 5.1 Left Hand Playing Exercises: So here's a little tutorial on how to actually play the court. So this is some additional stuff. If you want me to add more stuff, just let me know. OK, so let's start up worth 100 way off actually playing because because some of you might be beginners. We don't know how to start. So let's start with one handed and I'm going to two handed. We'll do this simple first and maybe get into a more advanced way of playing this if you want me to. Anything stepping. So it's kept standing with the one handed. So we do the 1564 in that order in the key of C right and just want you, Teoh the way you're letting the courts right like this. I wanted to just use your head like this. You can either play with your pinkie, your middle finger and your index finger, or you can use your thumb himself. Here in Next thing works both works. Maybe for some of your this eyes a little bit more uncomfortable. This so that's the basic steps. So basically all of the courts and see it's gonna feel like this. So we have one with C major. Five US. John Major. Same stance. Exactly the same. A minor. You just move everything. One key up, everything to now. That's the way you plan. So let's do this again. You can also play with your thumb. So, Pinky, Uh, nothing. I felt just like this. The courts do what? Your London and see that was. See e g. Its one five six. That's one playing with you. So when you want todo public so you can just play this stuff Easiest. Well, I say like, Hey, I saw you. You were standing there. I don't say the sun sucks. You're better than you can do Better than that. Okay, Second way is a little bit more complicated. Maybe a little bit more challenging. Maybe for your left hand eyes. Two octaves instead. So I call this the open court variant. But where you play this issue, take 156 for gun rights of C major tech. See, when you take the other C, which is an octave above the sea here. So if you might have difficulty reaching this, but this is important. So you might want to let this on you take the G in the middle of next. Basically this steps so we don't play the It's just open chord. So it could be minor. Oh, Major. But it works either way. So, like this C g c on you move everything up. So what was C? What was G? Same stance. Don't move G. And then a Exactly the same. You don't even have to move your first. You just have to look, Teoh. That's probably the easiest way to. So I want you to have fun with that, okay? And I'll see you in the next. 23. 5.2 Right/Both Hand Playing Exercises: Okay, So now that you've mastered the one handed well, like this, that's not good. 200 players. So you remember how in the 100 way we started off like this? Like this. So I want you to exactly the same thing with your right. Right? Remember how we had a visit? The beginning index finger like this when you do the same thing with your right hand, so see e g for C major. So that's a family. See your melting early on your pinky. Andi On what? You just do the same thing. Same stats. So what five was SG on a minor on feels exactly the same. My soul. All right. A after the same thing with the way we did this on the left things case. You also take this. See Thea other level off the active on your older courts, right? So same staffs. Your hand. That's the same movement. I don't have to move your fingers so someone see index finger G c g a again what? Six four on? One important thing about this is don't cramp your hand don't like don't keep it like this with your muscles. Text in between you can actually relax you're having. So if you keep it like this, you'll get crapped. I'm gonna be alright. So eso tense. Relax. Already tense. Relax, Goto a relax. And that's the way. So now you have both hands Can play this now. How much to combine them? So first us both hands to the same. Right? So see? Okay. I like to play with this a bit. You don't have to play the g here or here. Doesn't matter. Thanks. That's what Both hats against something with this way. So what? The course now it gets interesting. Now, this might screw with your head a little bit, but I promise you it's gonna stop. Epic. Right. So remember how we started with the left hand like this and actually want you to play? That's him like this. Now, with your bike, I want you to play like this so I actually don't have spacing. So let's move this down. Adoptive. Open courts with your left hand on your playing normal, Cole C g. Feel free to do exactly as I do is just beginning. Right. So what might result from that? Let me give you an example. You might recognize this Some for this case, actually, both hands like this, and it's not It's quite not quite the same. But if I just change it up a bit, you can see how it sounds. So don't just just ignore the keys, Okay? But it's not like this, right? You recognize way. Uh, so now that you can do this way if you want to weigh and then now you can actually I recommend your left hand to use this stance. Right? Because if you do too close together and a note that too low, it's gonna solve really pushy. You know what you want? You can play like this. The cool thing is, you can also play versions. So Okay, so that's open seat right hand first on Christmas Eve. So that Waas, let's recap. I want you to move out g. Same posture. You can do the inversion on a minor too. So, basically to stay posture everywhere way. Wait a second, G c c. Change it up. Right way regular G way just on For the more advanced of you. You can play the at night staff and all the stuff in between. So at all everything together. You end up with what I showed. You will show you in that sound like this off course. They don't have to play everything at the same time. Way seven way things, E. I hope you like this little extra. 24. 6.1 Happy Song Style: So that's no briefly touch on some styles so we can categorize them into sad and really cheesy. Right? So, for happy, we want to start with a major, usually. So if you take a look at our court charged. So one time 64 works. 6415 dozen because six is a minor. Basically, everything that stuff with one or five is good off course. Play major stuff sadly as well. But I was happy. Starting on a major is usually the best way. For example, you see major way. Wanna play? This is also don't use the pedal if you have one. We don't have that. You don't have a pedal that good, right? That was a panel jump a little bit, Do a little bit of jumping A little bit of a little way happy, you know a little bit faster The dump your 25. 6.2 Sad Song Style: Okay, Look at the office. If it gets that song for this, you can start on a minor. This definitely makes it sad, but you can also start on a major and play it safe. But in that case, you have to play really slowly and softly, right. Use the pedal with the sustain pedal if you have or hold the keys down as you as long as you can. For example, if we take 1564 again, okay, as tight as possible using the pedal. Wait it out to 6415 with stunning out miners myself off the same way. So studying minor is a key to, um, make it reading. It's sad. Don't tell us loudly. Don't slap the keys and used to sustain That's happy. 26. 6.3 Cheesy Song Style: I love or something fun. Maybe you want to do this, but it definitely fun for me. It's basically applying everything in black. So if you want to make yourself some really, really, really cheesy, then you play all the inversion to pay all the seventh notes. You play all the at my stuff and you make it sound set. Right? So if you want to make something so happy, cheesy stuff that easy make it sound sad. Really? So make it Some said it was all of the things. What I taught you inversion seventh at nights and you're on top of the cheese. Right? So it's got sound like this. I'm gonna try to really, really take it. Take it to the top right here, see if you can figure it out, OK? To see way. That was too much cheese for me. Right? So you get the idea, Okay? I don't know. It 27. 7.1 Adding lyrics on the fly: Okay, Great. You are now set to write your own song. If you have lyrics already, great uses stuff. You're fluent ear after you've played around with it a bit, and if you have your suffering down to strike, sit around with it and have fun with it. If you don't help lyrics, I recommend just to have some fun by improvising right? So basic you to take forecourt or three chord progression. Mr 15 Export. Simple like 64 on normally like not sad or happy or anything like that. Just a ceased little effort as possible for pain on any given day like this, if you want the simplest way possible, let's do this. So as it sat in the title, keep it as simple as possible. Make it simple, because that's the way you get into it. Once you sick and tired off the simple stuff, we've got to make it more complicated. So let's explore and it starts to stop blabbing all stuff. So let's make it really cliche and do what chain smokers do and just sing about random, random stuff like about girl about plays, about food or something. Let's go, baby. You with me. And I was like you. Oh, you wait, just go nuts. Okay? That's why I wrote in the course that you might need some vocal. I need some local experience before this if you want to get started. But definitely that's the way to go. That's we have fun, huh? Make it as simple as possible. Just have fun with it. If you're really serious. Songwriter, you can use this on. I have, like, around here in your head. You're feeling really bad about something. You're feeling awesome about something. Have something in your head you want toe put to music are productive into music. Then you can use the same method, right? So if you have something when you said you can see about your friend or whatever works the same way instead of me fooling around singing about random stuff. Okay? Okay. You made it this far 28. 8.1 Quick Recap: final lecture. That's still a quick recap. So you got the idea off how this works. If you don't want to listen to everything again by recommend bidding up records, you have to know the course is oil. If you wanna do you wanna know pain, It's so know your four chords and KFC may be in the Cube G. Any for advanced. You know them anyways. Already. Right. So one fax 64 these four chords You need to know them. That's the bottom line off this course once you know them. OK, maybe listen to a couple of pop songs and fight to assign these chords to the songs because , most likely, double fit can also typing into Google like 1564 songs. 6415 songs. Anyone get a huge list off salt? Um, just to get a feeling foot. Eso. Once you have your cords down, you can go play around with some corporations like 15646415 1545 Stuff like that payment within. Just improvise. Have some fun with it on. If you've chosen a progression, you can then go and shoot some style place so happy or cheesy. And, uh, you said that you can so you can take a corporation way. And then you can start adding of lyrics if you already have their base, your entire thing on those lyrics to just affect around core progression. If you think it doesn't sound good, no problem. Just use another one. Just one of mine which actually here You can't just pain wrong with the 1564 chords in whatever order you want. You can also pay courts multiple times so like one for a 545 You pay five twice, right? No problem at all with that. And then just play court according to your lyrics or like me If you crap at body lyrics you don't have ones before have you can try to improvise them while you play a lot. Also the way to the end If you want Teoh, want me to teach some stuff? Maurin depth. If you want to live in some war death, you think something's weren't expecting? Well, let me know I add it on. Don't forget to leave an honest rating. It really helps me out If you want to learn all the courts. Right? So we have 1564 if you want to learn. 1234567 Wanted all that. Check out my other course. It's called the piano chord ladder. Okay, on a message me if you want, if you want some more specific information about that, or maybe even give you All right. So dispatchers messaged me about the camcorder. If you want all the course, that gives you a huge repertoire and you can do anything with that and also extend your improvisation game and you're something game. So this is just a really basic one for somebody. Specifically, if you want to really extend your game, you can also have a look at that. I also have another course on how to play the piano by ear, which does involve singing but doesn't want the courts. So basically, you learn this first before courts. Then you learn all the seven cores in every key. And then you go and play the songs by here if you want to. So stuff like it's not like that, right? Cool. Thank you very much for learning. Don't forget to even honest rating and have their problems. If you want to know something, let me know. Okay. I'll see you next week.
