You have 88 keys and ten fingers. What the heck do you play? It’s easier than you might think. Your LH and RH have different roles that should work together to produce a great sounding tune. When you understand the roles each hand plays you’ll be better equipped to play solo piano and make progress. I will dissect the specific LH components in this episode. Enjoy!
- Bullet Points
- 1. Just Chords
- 2. Just Roots
- 3. Bass Notes and Chords your most comfortable with. (Root position, Inversions, Rootless voicings). Practice just using a bass note or a chord per measure.
- 4. 1+7 or 1+3+7
- 5. Combine Bass Notes, Chords, 1+3, and 1+3+7
- 6. If you use 1+7 while playing a tune, try and add the 3rd in your right below your melody.
- 7. Practice each component SLOWLY!
