Another extended piano chord you need to know!

      Hello again, and welcome to the next edition of the newsletter. I hope you are enjoying learning about all the chords in the world -- and we're going to cover them ALL before we're done -- you'll know more about chords than 99% of the people in the world -- believe it or not, it's true.

    If you recall the first week we learned about the three chords you absolutely, positively CAN'T do without.  Then the next  week we took an airplane ride over Chordland just to get the lay of the land -- the overview of the world of chords.

     Then in the next  weeks lesson we showed you how easy it is to learn ALL the major chords (there are 12 of them) and be able to play them in seconds -- not hours or days or weeks or months or years. Some people go through their entire lives not being sure about what such and such a major chord is -- and it's all so unnecessary, because you can memorize them in just a few minutes, and learn to play them in 12 seconds or less - one second per chord. I have had many private students over the years who could play them all in as little as 5 seconds -- one little gal (she was about 12 at the time) had particularly fast hands, and could play them in - believe it or not - 3 seconds!  I have slow hands with fat fingers, and yet I can play them in something like 5 or 6 seconds.

     Next  you learned how to easily turn major chords into minor chords just by moving one key one-half step -- by lowering the 3rd of the major chord.

     Then we learned diminished triads -- just by lowering the 3rd and the 5th of a major chord 1/2 step.

     Then we learned inversions -- how to stand chords on their head.

     And finally, we took up augmented triads -- formed by simply raising the 5th of a major triad.

     Last week we learned about  major 6th chords. They are 4-note chords -- the root, 3rd, 5th -- just like a major chord, but you also add the 6th degree of the scale to the major triad. The 6th is ALWAYS one whole step above the 5th -- never a half step --  so they are real easy to find.

     Today we will change those major 6th chords into minor 6th chords just by altering the 3rd 1/2 step -- in other words, a minor triad with a 6th on top.

     So please go to the web page where you can both see and hear minor 6th chords:

     Enjoy!

     Blessings,
