About This Class

Learn to play LH Stride and Ballad to the Chord progression of Yesterday by Ear. Put in 2-5 to Yesterday for jazzy feel

Play Piano 4:  Play Popular Songs By Ear Using Chord Progression!  Improvise & Put 2-5 Power Chords to Yesterday + WORKBOOK

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 "Yesterday", I show you how to take a tune from its basic harmony  ( I  IV  V7 )  to advanced sophisticated chords.  

"Yesterday" was composed by Paul McCartney during the Beattle's tour of France in 1964.  However, the song was not released until the summer of 1965.  Before it was released, the title was originally called 'Scrambled Eggs'  but later the Beattles wanted it to be a one word title and that's how "Yesterday" came into being.   

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 2-5 Powr Chord Rules & Chord Substitutions to "Yesterday Improvisation".  

In this song, I teach you how to use 2-5 Power chords to reharmonize the song from the harmonic basic chord foundation.

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

  • CM9
  • Am7
  • FM9
  • D7/F#
  • G7
  • Bm7
  • Bm7b5
  • E7
  • Am7/G
  • Am7/F
  • Am7/E
  • Db7
  • G7b9
  • CM7/B
  • G7/B
