Adele: Rolling In The Deep

English: Adele

 A lovely moment at the Grammys for me was hearing Adele belt out, one of my favorite songs,
Rolling In The Deep. I like her, plus her communication I saw on an interview. I just had a very brief moment this a.m. to walk through the music myself. Next time, I'll have it memorized. It's pretty simple to play. It's a fast, peppy song filled with power chords. It was nice to have Adele back with us after taking some time off for vocal surgery. I have not posted about Whitney Houston yet but I plan to after her memorial service, with respect for her family. As many of you know, she was one my favorite artists, along with the rest of the world! We all thought of her and felt very sad. WE will always love you Whitney... more later.

So, here I am on my Yamaha Motif ES8.

Music Chords

In music, a power chord Play (also fifth chord) is a chord consisting of only the root note of the chord and the fifth interval, usually played on electric guitar ...  Power chords are often performed within a single octave, as this results in the closest matching of overtones. Octave doubling is sometimes done in power chords. Power chords are often pitched in a middle register. If they are too low, they tend to sound unclear and boomy. When played too high they lack depth and power.

Play these Power Chords in your left hand:

C5 = CG

G5 = GD

Bb5 = BbF

Then your adding both hands with r.h. chords and single bass notes:

Ab = Ab/AbCEb

Bb = Bb/BbDF

Gm7 = G/BbDF

G = G/GBD

Cm = CC/GCEb

Abmaj7 = AbAb/EbGC
