The G7 Chord
Chord Style Piano
Chord Style Piano is the easiest, fastest and most enjoyable way of learning how to play!
Now I didn't create this method, but I have taken what was taught to me some 40 years ago and made it much easier to learn. You won't find an easier piano method anywhere!
The Half Note
In the previous lesson you used the half note. The round note head of a half note is not filled in and has a stem. Half
notes get 2 beats or 2 counts - 1 half note is equal to 2 quarter notes.
The Whole Note
The round note head that makes up a whole note is not filled in and it has no stem. Whole notes get 4 beats or 4 counts. One whole note equals two half notes.
As you learned in Lesson #2, a chord is a group of notes played together at the same time. In today's lesson, you will learn the G7 chord.
In the illustration below, the yellow arrow located below the keys represents Middle C. The G7 chord will be played to the left, or lower than the Middle C key.
In Step 4 of this lesson, you will see and hear the G7 chord exercise.
