THE ALL CHORDS MEMORY TRICK

Piano for all – read more now…

If you play all the 3 note major OR minor chords in your RIGHT hand in ‘root’ position (THUMB on ROOT note) you will notice that except for the 4 ‘B’ chords (Bb, Bbm, B and Bm) the other 20 chords ALWAYS have the same colour key for the THUMB and the 5th FINGER (the 1st and 5th of the chord)

Then all you have to memorize are the position of the‘middle’ notes (the ‘3rd’)

With MINOR chords the middle note is to the left

With MAJOR chords the middle note is to the right

Piano chord chart

These agreements provide lessons everything you learn to play chords. We’ll start with the base from the piano chords chart and before you know it, you’ll be able to play your favorite song it be pop, rock, funk, or anything else that comes to mind.

Chords every piano and keyboard player should know the basic chords are major, minor, augmented and diminished, and seventh chords. These agreements are the most common and are relatively easy to play.

These agreements are the root notes root C identifies Others are possible to implement these agreements. For example, a C-major (C, E, G), D. This will be implemented in a D major chord (D, F, A) results.

These agreements are set up by musical intervals. Any agreement:

A keynote
A note a major third (M3) or minor third (m3) of the root
A note a perfect fifth fifth (P5), augmented fifth (A5) reduces or above the root

And a note seventh chords in the major seventh (M7), seventh (M7) have, or diminished seventh (d7) above the root.

Basic agreements:

Major – Root, M3, P5
Minor – Root, M3, P5
Augmented (Aug) – Root, M3, A5
Root, m3, d5 – diminished (dim)

Seventh chords:

7 – Root, M3, P5, M7
M7 – Root, M3, P5, M7
M7 – Root, M3, P5, M7
dim7 – Root, m3, D5, D7
half dim7 – Root, m3, d5, M7

Example:

If we choose a major chord, for example, begins with the selection of a known root. We can choose one of 12 tones, but in this case you would choose, G. The next clue we need is a major third (M3) to the root, which would be in this case the note B, the last thing we need is to be a perfect fifth above the fundamental, which would in this case to note D. Now we have all three notes of our agreement with major: G, B and D.

PIano chords and lyrics for FUN: We are young with tutorial from Andrew Dost

F
Give me a second I

I need to get my story straight
Dm
My friends are in the bathroom

getting higher than the empire state
Bb
my lover she’s waiting for me

just across the bar
C
My seats been taken by some sunglasses

asking ’bout a scar
F
and I know I gave it to you months ago
Dm
I know you’re trying to forget
Bb
but between the drinks and subtle things
C
the holes in my apologies

you know I’m trying hard to take it back

[Pre-chorus]
Bb C
so if by the time the bar closes
Dm C Bb
and you feel like falling down
Bb C
I’ll carry you home

[Chorus x2]

F
Tonight
F Dm
We are young
Bb
So let’s set the world on fire

We can burn brighter
F C
Than the sun

[The Same as the 1. verse]

Now I know that I’m not
all that you got
I guess that I
I just thought maybe we could find a ways to fall apart
But are friends in back
So let’s raise a cup
Cause I found someone to carry me home

[Chorus x2]

Tonight
We are young
So let’s the set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

F Bb
Carry me home tonight
F/Dm C
Just carry me home tonight
F Bb
Carry me home tonight
F/Dm C
Just carry me home tonight

The world is on my side
I have no reason to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
The angels never arrived
but I can hear the choir
so will someone come and carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

[Same as pre-chorus on the 1. verse,except ending is a Fmajor after the C.]

So if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight
