I am often asked questions regarding various music scales, such as Major, Minor, Blues, etc.
So, I thought I would gather up some information for you. Remember this:

Scales played in the correct musical way
are very exciting and rewarding

What are the benefits of playing scales?

Scale practice doesn't make playing songs better. Practicing your scales makes your scales better. Plus, your sight reading and improvisation will improve.

*How do I find time to practice?
*How can I get better at playing in different keys?
*How do I decide/recognize what the left hand chords are in a piece of music?
*How can I play and read sheet music faster?
*How do I decide on proper fingering?
The answer to these and many other piano playing questions can now be yours.

Blues Monday: Trems and Fills

Eighth note run

Tremolo


You can tremolo between the root and the b3 of the key over almost the whole blues progression.

How To Do It


In the key of F: Put you thumb on F, and your 2nd or 3rd finger on Ab. Now roll your hand back and forth between the two notes. It might seem awkward at first, but it will become more natural as you keep working at it. The key is to keep your hand relaxed. If this technique is new to you, be careful not to overdo it in the beginning. It is better to practice new techniques for a few moments frequently, rather than trying to sit down and master all at once.

Practice Trems and Fills


So, practice shaking F and Ab for 4 beats with the right hand while playing these swinging eighth notes with the left hand.

FC/, FC/

FD/, FD/

FEb/, FEb/

Another fill that you can play in the right hand, while your comping with the eighth notes above, are these r.h. single notes:

F up to B, then Bb, Ab, F, Eb, F

Now you're ready to shake once again back and forth, F to Ab... but play these eighth notes in the left hand:

BbF/, BbF/

BbG/, BbG/

BbAb/, BbAb/

BbG/, BbG/

Triplet


A pick up note you can do next in the right hand is this quick triplet:

Enharmonics


F, Ab, G then a grace note, where you slide off F# and land on GC in the r.h. That little F# is an enharmonic respelling of the b5 (Gb) in the key of C. Some people call this a crush tone.

Meanwhile, the left hand is playing this chord change:

CG/, CG/,

CA/, CA/

CBb/, CBb

CA/, CA

Now, we're coming home towards the ending:

BbF/F

BbG/

Bb/Ab

End:

FC/B

FD/Bb, Ab

FEb/F

FC/F

12 Bar Blues


What you're playing is this:

F7 4 bars

Bb7 2 bars

F7 2 bars

C7 1 bar

Bb7 1 bar

F7 2 bars

Matt Redman: Better Is One Day

Matt Redman
Cover of Matt Redman


Wikipedia says, Matt Redman is an English Christian worship leader, song-writer and author. I enjoy playing his songs and I believe Better Is One Day was written by Matt Redman in 1997. Most artists play this song in E but I've heard it in medleys starting in D and modulate to the Key of E.

Chord Chart:

VERSE 1:
     E                            
How lovely is Your dwelling place,
A           B
 oh Lord Almighty
 E                                 B
My soul longs and even faints for You
     E     
For here my heart is satisfied,
A              B
 within Your presence
   E                               B
I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings

CHORUS:
           A
Better is one day in Your courts
           B
Better is one day in Your house
           A
Better is one day in Your courts
                B
Than thousands elsewhere

VERSE 2:
      E
One thing I ask and I would seek,
A              B
 to see Your beauty
    E                                 B
To find You in the place Your glory dwells

BRIDGE:
C#m7                     B  
 My heart and flesh cry out,
A                    B
 for You the living God
C#m7                 B      A   B
 Your spirit's water to my soul
C#m7                   B
 I've tasted and I've seen,
A
 come once again to me
E/G#
 I will draw near to You
F#m7                 B
 I will draw near to You

 So, in the right hand, I'm playing single melody notes. Sometimes this may not be a good thing to double up and play what the singers are doing. Here it is anyways so that you can hear the notes.

E, D#, C#, E, F#, E, A, E, C# B
How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty.

E, D#, C#, E, F#, E, B, B
My soul long and even faints for You.

E, D#, C#, E, E, F, E, A, G#, B
For here my heart is satisfied within Your presence.

E, D#, C#, F#, G#, B
I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings.

Chorus:

G#, B, B, A
Better is one day in Your courts

G#, B, B, G#
Better is one day in Your house

G#, B, B, A/C#, B
Better is one day in Your courts Than thousands elsewhere.

When you change the chords just a little and add more flavor, like playing A2 or Bsus, it makes the sound fuller.

 to see Your beauty
    E                                 Bsus
To find You in the place Your glory dwells

C#m7                     Bsus  
 My heart and flesh cry out,
A                    Bsus
 for You the living God
C#m7                  Bsus      A   Bsus
 Your spirit's water for my soul
C#m7                   Bsus
 I've tasted and I've seen,
A2
 come once again to me
C#m7
 I will draw near to You
A2                     A2/F#m
 I will draw near to You
  
I've also played the song, Better Is One Day, in the key of D.

Vanessa Carlton: A Thousand Miles (Chords)


A Thousand Miles
A Thousand Miles (Photo credit: Wikipedia)



A Thousand Miles was written by Vanessa Carlton, an American singer-song writer in 2002. My piano students enjoyed playing this song, from the easy version to advanced. Let's take a look at some arrangements to the song, A Thousand Miles.


1. Chords by Joan’s Genius 2002



INTRO: C F G // C F G //  Am G // Am G
(this pattern corresponds to the piano riff she plays throughout the song)


VERSE 1:
C                 G  
Making my way downtown
        F           G                       C F G C F G
Walking fast, faces pass and I'm home bound
C               G 
Staring blankly ahead
               F              G               Am
Just making my way, making my way through the crowd

[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/v/vanessa-carlton/214023.html ]
BRIDGE:
Am  F  G
         And I need you
C   F  G 
         And I miss you
Am  F  G           F
         And now I wonder
   Am      G      Am     F
If I could fall into the sky
   Am        G          Am   F
Do you think time would pass me by
      Am       G          F
Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
           C    F   G           C F G C F G Am G Am G 
If I could just see you tonight


VERSE 1:
     C                 G
It's always times like these
                F                G           C     F  G  C F G 
When I think of you and I wonder if you ever think of me
      C               G
Cause everything's so wrong
              F           G                Am
And I don't belong living in your precious memories
(repeat Bridge)


CODA: 
   Am    G
And I, I don't want to let you know
Am   F
I, I drown in your memory
Am   G
I, I don't want to let this go
Am   F
I, I don't....
(repeat Verse 1 & Bridge)


OUTRO:
   Am      G      Am     F
If I could fall into the sky
   Am        G          A    F
Do you think time would pass me by
      Am       G          F
Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
           C    F   G                
If I could just see you 
           C    F    G                 
If I could just hold you
  C
Tonight

Amsterdam was written in 2002 by Guy Berryman, Jon Buckland, Will Champion and Chris Martin.
 Before I move on to this song, you might be interested in some previous posts on Coldplay songs, if you're a fan!

4. Yellow

So, I like playing Coldplay's Amsterdam in the Key of Eb with a 4/4 meter.
Here's a different key with the online chord chart @ http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/c/coldplay/amsterdam_crd.htm

verse:
D        A        E           G
Come on, oh my star is fading
D       A         E         G
And I swerve out of control
D   A     E              G
If I, if I'd only waited
D        A         E               G
I'd not be stuck here in this hole.

*play intro and repeat verse*

chorus: 
E                    G
But time is on your side
              D        A 
It's on your side now
E7                        G    
Not pushing you down and all around
          D         A 
It's no cause for concern


*intro again and verse*

*chorus till end*

Friday Freebie: Music and Apps


I've been using this app with my grandson before school starts up again. I'll be sharing this one with piano students. Be sure and check this one out.

Teach-your-kindergartener-music-theory-with-kinderbach-ipad-app




Learn about Finale SongBook here. I'm just starting to play with this but a blogger friend and piano teacher has lots of experience with this App. Read about it here.

Are you looking for free sheet music? Here's a few for this week:

Free Sheet Music: Can-Can

Defying Gravity

William Tell Overture

Broken Chords

In many styles of music including Country, it is common to play the bottom note of the chord, followed by the upper notes of the chord and keep alternating between them. This is known as a broken chord style of playing.

C Chord played in the l.h. would be C then play EG together.

Once you're comfortable playing C as a broken chord, try moving between the chords C, F, and G.

C Chord: C, then EG

F Chord: C, then FA

G Chord: B, then DG

Then end with CEG/ C

Just starting up, brand new is Jazz Intensive Training Center.
