How To Play Left Hand Chord Inversions


Left Hand Chord Inversions: LadyDpiano


How To Play Left Hand Chord Inversions on the Piano


Chord Inversions are helpful when playing the piano so that you have more options for playing. Here you will find tips on how to play a chord inversion with your Left Hand.

We will start with a C chord. The notes for a C chord are C, E, G. This is also called the root. The  C chord will always be C, E, G no matter how you rearrange it. Just like 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, no matter how you rearrange the numbers. Play the C, E, G with your 5 finger (pinky), 3 finger and 1 finger (thumb).

Step2

In order to play the 2nd inversion of the chord you need to rearrange the 3 notes. For the 2nd inversion, the notes will be in this order, E, G, C. Use your 5 finger, 3 finger and  1 finger.

Step3

The 3rd inversion is the same notes rearranged again, G, C, E. There is just a little change in the finger numbers, though. Use 5, 2 and 1.

This same format is used for every chord. Have your fingers use the same pattern for all the chord inversions.

How to Put Chord Inversions Together 


For jazz, rock, guitar, piano and everything that involves playing or writing music, chord inversions are a must know. They give you the ability to create a better flow to the song and to make it easier to get from one chord to the other. You've probably heard the expression, Smooth Chord Progressions.

The basic concept to keep in mind with chord inversions is that you are simply taking the notes from the regular stack of notes and moving them to a different place on the guitar, piano or staff.

Practice playing the major chords in different inversions. Inversions of a chord use the same notes, but place a different note in the bass. For example, a C major chord is C, E, G. The first inversion of the C-major chord is E, G, C. The second inversion is G, C, E.

PIANO CHORD FINGERING for the LEFT HAND:
The same principle as the right hand, just reversed.

BASIC IDEA FOR CHORD FINGERING for the LEFT HAND:

Chords are every other note so use every other finger.  5-3-1

CHORD INVERSIONS:  

Using C chord inversions for examples: It's all about spacing.

FIRST INVERSION C CHORD = E - G - C   Use 5-3-1

1.  E TO G = 3 note interval  E - F - G, smallest grouping of notes
2.  G TO C = 4 note interval  G - A - B - C, largest grouping of notes


FIRST INVERSION CHORDS SHOULD USE FINGERING 5-3-1. 
This is very easy fingering in the left hand, because when playing
G and C, we can use the widest range in our hand the 3 to the thumb.


SECOND INVERSION C CHORD = G - C - E  Use 5-2-1
1.  G to C = 4 note interval, G - A - B - C  largest grouping of notes,
2.  C TO E =3 note interval, C - D - E  smallest grouping of notes

SECOND INVERSION CHORDS SHOULD USE FINGERING 5-2-1
WHY? G to C is the largest grouping of notes, so we have to
accommodate that with using the 2 finger on C, adding more
space between our fingers.


Remember, the basic principles of fingering is to use your fingers and hand
in natural positions.  Always think of how the black keys are used in your
songs, and how to use the tight and open hand spans.  I've used the scales and chord fingerings to help you get this idea.

How To Play If by David Gates


David Gates: If


Such a beautiful song, If produced in 1971, with Words and Music by David Gates. You can listen to more songs of his on Jango. He has a very distinct voice and style. David Gates is an American singer-songwriter, best known as the lead singer of the group Bread. A wonderful CD with 20 songs you won't want to miss, David Gates Songbook. I'm thinking of my Kansas City Cousins today who have been married for 57 years. Seems so rare now but oh, so precious! Today is Jan's memorial service and indeed, she was a bright star in our family. Her husband Dick, how he loved her so. I can just picture him singing this song... So hard to say goodbye. This is a love song dedicated to my cousins, Dick and Jan. Love you! xo

Level Two: Student Guide


Level Two: Student Guide for Second Year Students


Once my students complete Level 1 piano lessons, they continue on with Alfred's Basic Piano Library Lesson Book: Level 2. In case you missed the first post of Level 1 overview, you can find it here. Basically, the goal is for students to learn measures, bar lines and counting. Reviewing high and low notes with groups of 2 black keys. Learning that neighboring fingers play neighboring keys is essential, along with feeling the pulse on half notes with steady rhythm. Basically, we cover five finger patterns, a few major keys, many basic chords and some students learn chord progressions!

On to the next level... Level 2! By the end of the school year, children will perform a memorized solo and another contrasting style piece. They are able to understand more music symbols and vocabulary at this level. Moving on...

Jazz & Blues: Faber & Faber

ShowTime Piano Jazz & Blues: Level 2A - Elementary Playing

Functional Skills

A. Rhythm and Pulse Development: count aloud the rhythm of the quarter, half and whole notes and corresponding rests, and dotted half notes with metronome at 72.

B. Sight Playing: 4-8 measure piece in 5 finger position.

C. Keyboard Facility: Prepare 5 pentascales or one octave scale (major or minor, hands separate and together). Keys: C, D, E, F, G. Play a triad in each key. Know Cm, Fm, Gm, Dm, Am and Em. To form a minor chord, lower the middle note of a Major chord one half step. 

D. Applied Theory: Be able to play for the teacher, intervals of 2nd - 5ths on white keys, up and down. Sharped and flatted notes. The goal here is to play Melodic and Harmonic Intervals. An important concept here is that playing harmonic intervals should be softer than the melody. The melody should be clearly heard. Know chord inversions, too.

E. Written Theory: Be able to write about

* Number of beats for quarter, half, whole notes and rests and dotted half notes.
* Counting in 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 meter.
* Drawing sharp, flat and natural symbols; recognizing forte, piano, staccato and legato.
* White and black key names on keyboard.
* 2nd - 5th intervlas pictured on keyboard and staff, white keys only.
* Names of the notes on the grand staff from first line bass G to fifth line treble F.

I wanted to make a note here that many students learn V7 chords, Augmented and Diminished Chords at Level 2. I've written several posts, Augmented and Diminished Chords and Augmented Chords: When and Where To Use Them.

F. Listening: Able to answer questions verbally

* Forte, piano, legato or staccato sounds. (understanding dynamic levels).
* Direction of 5 notes (up, down or repeating).
* Identifying steps and skips played for you.
* The beat of a song (by clapping along).
* Which one of two descriptions matches a piece played for you.

It is important for students to understand and observe staccato articulation. Phrasing and dynamic shading is necessary. Students employ a "down-up" wrist movement. Plus, knowing how to play Allegro and Allegretto. Technical training is more important than just working at scales and finger exercises. It should include practice for pianissimo and fortissimo, crescendo and diminuendo. Here are a few terms taken from Level 2...

Music Dictionary

accent - play this note louder

eighth rest - one-half beat of silence

fermata - hold this note longer than usual

flat - lower the note a half step (the nearest key to the left)

half rest - two beats of silence

natural - no sharp or flat, just the letter name (a white key)

ottava - play one octave higher than written

pick up note (upbeat) - an incomplete measure. A pick up note leads to the first full measure. Often the last measure will also be incomplete. Then, the combined value of the first and last measure equals one complete measure.

quarter rest - one beat of silence

ritardando - gradually slow down

sharp - raise the note a half step (nearest key to the right)

slur - musical phrase, idea with connected notes

staccato - lift quickly; short and bouncy

tempo - the speed of the music

tie - curved line connecting the same notes, hold for the combined value of both notes

time signature - two numbers at the beginning of a piece (one above the other); top number indicates the number of beats per measure, while the bottom number indicates the note receiving the beat

triplet - 3 eighth notes to a quarter note

1st and 2nd endings - play the 1st ending and take the repeat; play 2nd ending, skipping over the 1st ending

pedal marking - depress the damper pedal (right foot pedal) after you play the note or chord; release at the end of the pedal mark

pedal change - Lift the pedal on the beat and depress immediately after

repeat signs - Play the section within the repeat signs again

whole rest - a whole measure of silence

Be sure and check out Jermaine Griggs  Home Study Course. It's a great theory workbook filled with lots of core music concepts and it's about 300 pages. The big workbook covers many music principles that you need to know for a good foundation in understanding music. Playing all kinds of chords in songs is so important, too. Another approach to learning is hearing these audio cds, Chords 101 & 102
