So yet I'm going to be during structure in this class and I'm very excited and happy to share this musical journey with you. Welcome. 2. C major chord: in this last, we are going to their how to play major courts. We're going to learn not only how to play major courts beginning from any note as the root , but we're going to understand the structure of this is very important. Courts have structures that you really need to learn northern to really understand and be capable to play. From any note, we're going to begin with the C major court. We need to understand that. Try it. Try a beginning from seeing seeing is the root. So the next note in this court is going to be E because you have want to tree so the South earth and the next note it's going to be the gene because it is. Want to treat another third from sea to eat. You have 1/3 and from C to G, you have 1/5. So this is try and the seat. Try it. If we want this court to be major, we need to have a structure from this key to the next one. You have a distance. This distance is called half step. From this note, there's no you have house step. So from this note to this note. You have one whole step. What we're going to do, we need to have from seeing two way need to have two steps or 4/2 step. So from here, I'm going to count 1234 And this is the correct note. And from here, we're going to count to tree 12 tree on. This is the major court E c E. So and it's a way to find the structure off. Major court is to count from the route to the third. You need to have 4/2 steps. So 1234 on from the third to the fifth, you need to have three health steps. 123 Eso This'd is C major. In this case, you don't need to add any musical accidental should you just need to lay this notes White keys. And this is the C major court. But you can actually play eat another position. This is called inversion and have to do with the voicing the white and with place all the notes this is seeing me getting. But I can play also instead of playing three notes or I'm going to do is this see the note . I'm going to play the note right here, and I'm going to play a scene. See? Thesis, the first inversion. This is sudden pressure, the same notes, the same court. But we are going to We're playing this in different order. But because me I'm playing the same notes is a still C. Major Corp. And the second inversion goes instead of playing right here, this e I'm going to play it right here. So Jean c e this'd is the second inversion off c major. So this is the root of a seizure. Because I begin right here that through the route on then first and second inversion I going to recommend you this way of practice with both hands First Stribling the root position playing. You can't name the nose. You can say See the genies right hand c e seem tried this several times. There were going to play the first. I'm very sure it is going to be g c e g. Seen first from here. See, Jean now I'm going to play second inversion Jean Seen seen Jean. You can try this several times. Make sure that you feel confident after playing each hand before trying to go to the next inversion. So see major position first inversion thing second and Berisha off C major. 3. G major chord: Now let's learn how to play the G major court following the same procedure that we followed in the C major court. First, I'm going to find to try it. G's J is going to be the root. So right here is the B note. This is the third and the fifth Beak. So the try it is being me and I need to have from the route to the third. I need to have four houses, so I'm going to count 12 tree, for this is the correct note. And I need to have 3/2 steps from B to the 12 tree. So Jean being and this'd is the G made your court right here. I have G Major, try to practice every commander you're playing this route position to use finger number 13 and five. And right here, five tree and one is a very natural decision because you don't We're not playing any black key, so it it's easily done right here. There's no problem. So this is the right decision. First, a seizure. I'm going to play being Benji right here to play it right here. Three me thinking being being G try practice in this several times us many times as necessary. Gold your own pace So you can really go understanding what you are playing and practicing this. So the second decision is going to be the second inversion I'm going to begin. What I'm doing is I'm going to pass. But this be note I'm going to play it right here. So I'm going to play the G and B right here. The g m B. This is the second inversion right here. I was playing me thinking and I'm going to play this be no time going to play it right here . So it's going to be Tonto Eso Reppas Seasia No first inversion being the gene being second in version B g g. This are the three positions or the three inversions that G major has. So God, you're on pace Practice speech one before playing both hands at the same time 4. D major chord: Now let's learn how to play the major court. What we're going to do following the same procedure we're going to play, we're going to find a try at first mean going to 1/3. Want to tree if 123 b A are the notes off to try it? But we really need to make sure that has the structure that it's required to be a Major Corp While we're going to do, we are going to account from the route to the third. I need to have four house steps. So this is the route 12 Tree four. This is interesting because I was playing the try it right here at the natural F. But I need from the D to the third to have 4/2 steps 12 tree. So I need to play this. No. So instead, off playing natural f, I'm going to play f sharp. So this is going to be the necessary note if we want this court to be major. So the end sharp. And now I need three health steps from the F sharp to the next. Notes are going to be 12 tree right here, so I don't need to change this to notes from try it. But I need to change the third. So the third is going to be if sharp the f sharp and a This is the major core right here. Be sure and a This is the major in route position. You know the first inversion. I'm going to pass this the two right here. So I'm going to play f You're A and B Always tried to keep the natural procedure. Avoid playing with three fingers. You can play like this or like this. It depends on the size of your hand. So f sharp A and the first position. Then I'm going to play this picture. I'm going to pass right here. I'm going to play a d and s for me. It's very natural to play with finger two and four right here. This is the major court second inversion. So right here Thistles The room position, then sharp a d Right here. First pressure, then a picture The f sharp. This is the second inversion. So one last time This is going to be sorry. Major First inversion second impression on this is that second all the positions fall The major court remember if sharpens required everyone this court to be major 5. A major chord: Let's learn how to play a major. Well, first we need to find to try it. That the A triumph is going to be a plane right here. A 12 tree. This is 1/3 123 thistles. The 50 a seeing me are the notes off the try. It's is it a try it? What we need to no is that we need to structure. And we need to have 4/2 steps from the route to the third. One, 234 So this is a note and I need to play c sharp because I need to have right here. Want to tree four? This is the route route, and the McClaren is going to be C sharp now, from the third to the fifth, I need to have three house steps. So 12 tree I come to train at this is the the A major. Get watch it right here. And things to notes are the same. But this note the third needs to be C sharp. So right here, right here, but rep position. And now I'm going to play the first inversion. I'm going to play C Sharp E Anthony c Sharpie and thing right here. No, I'm going to play second version being A and C. Sure this is the second inversion you can play. You can use his fingers to. It depends on your hand. So right? Decision First CEO second inversion right here. So you find playing both gas thing. Root position. First inversion second inversion. Make sure to practice each hand many times. It's very common that sometimes we are not. We cannot play with the same confidence one of the hands with one of our cans. Sometimes we are struggling. That's absolutely normal. McKay. Sometimes with the 10 I cannot play as well as your break, and but that is absolutely normal. So try to practice. Go slowly, Beach can separately before playing both hands and before playing fast. 6. E major chord: Now let's learn how to play the E major course. First, we are going to find a triad is right here with the m E note e want to treat? This is the 3rd 1 tree. This is the fifth e g. And being this'll is the Try it Now let's check the structure we need from the route to the third. We need to have four house steps are going to come right here. Want to tree four? So this is the necessary note right here. The third miles being sharp. So it's going to be a g sharp because I have This is the road. Want to tree for sure? No, From the 3rd 12 tree This is the fifth. So I'm not going to change route and the fifth button The third is going to be G shock being G shirt and this is the major core I'm playing right here. G sharp and B. You can't change like this. Actually, you can breed your own exercises going at your own pace, not playing too fast in order to really control on Know what you are playing now let's play the first inversion this e I'm going to play right here. So the first impression is going to be d sure me and in like, left hand sharp beginning right here thinks is the correct first inversion. Second version is going to be being e and G shirt. And right here being mean Ngige thing is the first inversion Second, I'm sorry. This is the second invasion. I mean, we're going to play this one more time. You major reposition your first Inbursa j? Sure, creamy second inversion bring me. And this is the major court with all its inversions. 7. B major chord: Now let's play be made your course. We need to find a try. A first still beginning. Read here from the B note being find 1/3 12 tree, sir. And 123 The next note. This is the fifth being being. And if you are the notes from the beat, try it right here. Now we need the structure of the major court. So we are going to count. This is the roots are going to count 45 steps 12 tree for this is the third, the sharp. And then I need to have four. Remember? Want you 34 So the third is going to be the sharp, then want to tree? This isn't f shot. So I have bean the shirt thing. This is the B major court. You have to be careful because this court has two notes that must be played right in the black. Keys to notes are black keys in this court. So for me, the sharp and be sure right here you have all right and you have This is a rep position. Then first inversion the sharp. Sure, then being and the sharp Maybe you are not going to be that comfortable or you're going to feel a bit weird because this is not as natural past or the courts. But do you really need to practice this God your own pace on Try Always play and relax. Don't stress your hand too much. This'll is the second inversion. So if I want to play both hands, it is going to be Oh, being shirt first. This is a rep position, then first impression and and then the second inversion. I think that this is the first court that you really need to practice a little bit more, trying not to stress relaxation or with your hands, your and your fingers. Because it this court doesn't feel as natural gas or their courts as C major or G meteor as an example. 8. F major chord: we're going to learn how to play the F major court. This is a pretty simple court because it doesn't have any musical accident to just need to go to triumph on. And if you check the structure, you will find that that's already the correct structured off the major court. So it's pretty simple you go to if you like f a scene with first inversion, then I'm going to pass this f right here. So first inversion is going to be a C and if and thistles the first inversion on second version, then this A. I'm going to play it right here. So it's going to be see if a if they see a A C F and see if a first lady right here see first inversion a scene F c. See if a f seen second inversion remember that you can create your own routine to practice this, but it's pretty simple, and I ever continue to play this court with finger number one, three and 55 tree and one 9. Bb major chord: Let's learn how to play B flat Major court. This is the B. Try it being the but because the road is going to be the flat. I'm going to play the Black Keys. This is B flat. And if I check the structure, I will see that from here. How to count for 12 tree for So this is the third from here. Going to count to tree 12 tree. So this is the fifth Ni flats being and thistle is the correct fingering. And this is a this on the correct notes First membership and then I'm going to play this B flat right here. So first number shown is going to be I mean, if I mean right here on second inversion. I'm going to play this right here and I'm going to play. And so this two positions first road position, first inversion and second inversion. If I play this both hands don't I see that I have right here meet me FD being me everything first This is a root position Then first inversion be every if me the f me definitely the second version of me right here have to be me 10. Eb major chord: that we're going to tell you how to play the E flat major court first, I'm going to play the e triumph is a Steve Gee and me, but because of root iss e flat, I'm going to write right here the key Blackie. So this is e flat If I count to 412 tree for 4/2 steps. So this is 1/3. And from here, 12 tree, this is the 50 it's going to be both the root and the fifth are going to be black keys. So be careful with this because you maybe can feel a little bit uncomfortable playing this . Or but you can't play with his fingers 1 to 4 or one tree and five ask you wish depending off your hand. So this is the ruth position, then the first inversion. I'm going to play this e flat right here, and I'm going to play G e flat e flat. I recommend you to play. Was fingers want to, and four because you will have more control in your sound. When you play like this, then this G I'm going to play it right here. So I'm going to play B flat e flat and G on.

E e flip through the second version right here. You can play with this 4 to 1. If you want me need energy right here on this is the E flat major court. Remember that you can, uh, take considerations about your How do you feel when you're playing each court? And if you find that there is a a specific court that you don't feel very comfortable, you can practice that more times than the other court, so you can really have control. I learned those courts very well. 11. Ab G# major chord: Now let's play the a flat major court. I'm going to play right here. This is the route, the triumph, a see and meet. But because the root of this court is a flat, I'm going to be in you right here. So I have a flat. Then account for 1234 So this is going to be the third natural seat.

Db C# major chord: I want to show you how to play the the flat made your core. Remember that discords in Armani off C sharp Major, I'm going to re fair. This too when I'm when speaking. Referred to not referring to notes ass the flat. So I'm going to play the d try a thing is a and remember that the root is D flat. So I'm going to lay it right here in the Black Keys. So be flattened, going to counter for for half steps. 123 forms. There's going to be natural left and then 12 tree a flat. So my d flat major core It is dif that if on a flat right here, simply use this three fingers if you want. And this is OK then I'm going to play this on the flat right here.

So what I'm going to do, I'm going to play the triumph. If they see then remember that the route is going to be f sharp. Eso if I count to four and would have 123 4/2 steps. So this is 1/3 then want to tree? This is a gift. Something important is that this court has it's notes exit with accidental with sharps and or flats and you need to play this with black keys. So if you feel major are going to feel very comfortable playing this. But just practice this and you will get this without any problems. So, first, this is a procedure.
