About This Class

Play Piano 5:  Play Popular Songs By Ear Using Chord Progression!  Improvise & Put 2-5 Power Chords to "Misty" + 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 "The Way We Were", I show you how to take a tune from its basic harmony  ( I  IV  V7 )  to advanced sophisticated chords.  

"Misty" is a jazz standard written in 1954 by the pianist, Erroll Garner.  The song was originally composed as an instrumentalist following the traditional 32 bar format.  Later, Johnny Burke wrote the lyrics to this tune.

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 "Misty 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: 

  • EbM7
  • EbM9
  • Eb6
  • Bbm7
  • Eb7 
  • Gm7
  • C7 
  • Bb7

  • Bbm7
  • Eb13
  • Abm9
