In this stage, we are going to learn some basic chords. Chords; a group of 3 notes played simultaneously. Although there are a wide range of chords, the most common are the major and minor sets, which are distinguished by the spacing of the chords. You can hear the different sounds in the clips below of a C major and C minor chord (don’t worry about the notes for now, just listen to the difference in sound).
This exercise is a simple chord sequence; C maj, G maj, A min, E min, F maj, D min and C maj. Try completing this with both hands.
These are the chords used in the music score above.
