Oh and did I mention… By the end of the video you WILL be able to play your very first chord progression!
As always I put a lot of thought into how these exercises build in layers so…
►First we look at moving the fingers as a scale. Moving up and down the notes evenly. This develops strength and smoothness in the playing. GO HERE… 1:00
►Secondly we look at a similar exercise but using arpeggios, or broken chords. This is amazing because now we venture into the realm of actual music. (Think someone like you by Adele) GO HERE… 4:12
►Third, we look at a simple triad (chord) and work on a few ways we can keep a steady rhythm going. This is great for developing your sense of timing. GO HERE… 6:27
►The fourth exercise takes this chord and shifts it around to different positions on the keyboard to create a really nice chord progression. This will be your first piece of actual music! GO HERE… 8:22
►And lastly, we take the chord progression from exercise four and play it slightly differently to give you some variety and develop your left and right hand coordination! GO HERE… 11:13
