About This Class

Play Old Standards by EAR using CHORDS!

Play Piano 2:  Play Love Me Tender (a.k.a Aura Lee) by EAR using advanced chord progression! WORKBOOK provided to do fun exercises.

I have developed this Amazing 2-5 Power Chord Reharmonization Method to help you gain success to playing your favorite standards.  

__________________

2-5 Power Chords are found in many standards and popular movie themes.  They make rich full sounds that will captivate your audience wanting more.

In this song Love Me Tender, I show you how to take a tune from its basic harmony  ( I  IV  V7 )  to advanced sophisticated chords.  

This song was made popular by Elvis Presley when he adapted the tune and wrote his own lyrics to 'Love Me Tender."  The melody lines are actually taken from "Aura Lee", which is a senitmental civil war ballad with music written by George R. Poulton and lyrics by W.W.Fosdick. The song is about a maiden. 

First, we need to establish a harmonic foundation to the song with basic chords so that you understand how complex chords come into play.  

I also put in a section on Easy Improvisation.  I show you different ways to improvise around the chord progressions so that you learn "tone motion voice leading".  Even when you don't play the actual melody of the song, you can hear the song in the background when you play the harmonic chord progressions. This is a good ear training program to help you play many standard and pop songs by EAR.

Learn New 2-5 Reharmonization Rules & Chord Substitutions to Aura Lee.  

In this song, I teach you the melody, chords, and reharmonization note-for-note using 2-5 Power chord method.

This "Series to play poplular songs by ear" aims to give you practical instructions to playing rich sounding chords even to a simple tune such as this one.

In the full arrangement of Aura Lee, you will be playing these chords: 

  • CM7
  • F#m7b5 
  • B7
  •  Am7 
  • D7, 
  • Db7,
