Personal Piano Professor, Issue#114 -Chord Inversions

Hello Friends!

Learn chord inversions and how to use them.

Hello fellow players,

Why are chord inversions important to learn?

If you only learn your chords in root position than you will spend a lot of time and motion jumping around the keyboard looking for the next root position chord to play with your left hand.

By using "voice leading" and finding the closest inversion of the "next" chord in your progression your playing will become more fluid and harmonically pleasing.

Learn the 12 bar blues progression on piano."

Learning the 12 bar blues progression is basic to understanding the roots of American popular music.

When you see a group of musicians getting together to play everyone seems to know what to do almost magically.

This is because at one time or another they learned the 12 bar blues progression.

While there are lots of variations of this timeless progression the most common is a three chord 12 measure version explained in this lesson.
