In our first course, Piano Building Blocks: "Learn the 24 Most Common Chords", we learned the 24 most common chords - the building blocks of all music. Most popular music can be played using those 24 common chords.
In time, though, playing only the basic version of each chord can become repetitive or dull. You begin to notice that what you're playing isn't as interesting as what you hear professionals play.
Chord inversions are the solution. By rearranging the order of the notes in the chords you play, all of a sudden you open up a huge palette of colors and textures at your disposal. Not only that, but chord inversions make it easier to play smoothly between chord changes, eliminating awkward pauses as you leap from chord to chord.
Why wait? Sign up now! If you're not already currently using inversion techniques, they will completely revolutionize your piano playing!
