New Video Piano Lesson On Major Piano Chord Variations

Here's a new video I just shot for the online piano instruction site It features some cool way to decorate major chords using the 9th. The basic idea behind this piano lesson is to give a player some new ideas when they see basic piano chords in a chord chart. 

Instead of just playing triads the whole time there are lots of simple ways of creating variations. This provides some different textures and definitely cooler sounds than the plain old triad approach.

You can add the 9th in your chords to and play them as block chords or you can also arpeggiate the chord shape too.  If you use inversions of these new chord shapes there are even more possibilites. It's a great way of making a lot of music with simple chord progressions. Try it out and I think you'll have a lot of fun with this technique!
