L.H. Chords - Eb Position
Top 10: It's good to keep track of how many chords you have learned. Why? Because students who see consistent progress are doing what it takes to become a piano player.
There are many different types of 7th Chords. So far, throughout this course, I have been teaching you 3-note 7th chords.
However, 7th chords actually contain 4 notes. The two most common types of 7th chords are dominant 7th chords and minor 7th chords.
So far, you have learned the C, G, D, A, E, F and Bb major chords, which are all 3-note chords. (see illustration below)
To make each one of these major chords a dominant 7th chord, just count up 7 notes from the root note. (see illustration below)
The 7th note up from the root note is the note we're going to add to the chord, which is why we call it a 7th chord. There's a little more to it, but that's basically how you build a 7th chord without getting too complicated.
For beginner piano students, it's a lot easier to start out playing 3-note chords than it is to play 4-note chords, which is why you have been playing 3-note 7th chords.
