With these books you can learn to accompany songs on the piano in a smooth way. You don’t need to be able to read music. Instead, you learn the chords with images that are easy to understand, like the following:
With the pictures you can quickly master the chords. You can accompany a first song after half an hour.
Each lesson will take about 30-45 minutes (depending on your skills of course). Part I contains thirty-six lessons and Part II contains another thirty-six. So in total there are seventy-two lessons. In each block you will learn new chords and new songs to play. Here are the table of contents of part I.
This app features countless songs from artists such as Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, Alicia Keys, Queen and The Black Eyed Peas. The songs are from different styles and periods. These songs have all been hits, so you’re probably familiar with most of them.
Of all the songs only a part is treated, in order to keep the lessons concise. Mostly the chorus is shown, because that it is the most recognizable part of the song. However, in some occasions another part is chosen.
In these lessons you will learn among others: Major and Minor Triads, Seventh Chords, Major Sevenths, Ninths, Sus4 Chords, Six Chords und Slash Chords.
You can order the book from Amazon, for example on www.amazon.com (Part I and Part II) or on www.amazon.co.uk (Part I and Part II). The books are available as paperback, hardcover or eBook.
