Hi friend, Hello, this is Jermaine Griggs here, the Founder of HearandPlay. I would just like to personally welcome you to my 13−day "Chord / Progression of the Day" series and congratulate you on your decision to study various chords and how they are formed! Listen ... what I am about to show you will literally change your thinking of "chords" forever! ... and with nearly 2−weeks ahead of us, we've got lots of studying to do! I would also like to point out that I try my best to provide some of the most useful information from my 300−pg course (www.HomePianoCourse.com). However, if you feel that you need additional exercises to supplement the online lessons that I provide to you, feel free to read about my new 300−pg The Secrets to Playing Piano By Ear course as it includes 20 chapters of insider secrets, techniques, principles, concepts, and tips to playing the piano by ear. Does that sound like a good deal to you? So don't forget, if you feel the need to study the daily topics "even further", please visit the Hear and Play Home Page 6

#1 of 13 "The Famous 2−5−1 Chord Progression" a) Dmin9 Chord (pronounced "D minor ninth chord") Bass = D Right hand = F + A + C + E b) G13 chord (pronounced "G thirteenth chord") Bass = G Right hand = F + A + C + E Note: This is the same chord above but since the bass is different, the chord is titled "G13" instead of "Dmin9." c) Cmaj9 chord (pronounced "C major ninth chord") Bass = C Right hand = E + G + B + D Now, play each chord consecutively (right after the other)... Dmin9 −−> G13 −−> Cmaj9 *** This type of progression is commonly heard in jazz and worship music! I hope you enjoyed ... *** 7

#2 of 13 "The Minor Ninth Chord in C#" Bass = C# Right hand = E + G# + B + D# I like to use this chord progression in a "1−4" turnaround. For example, it creates a nice groove when you change the 3rd finger from "B" to "A# (or Bb)" Now, if you do this, you must also change the bass to "F#." That is why I call it the "1−4" turnaround because "F#" is the 4th tone in the C# major scale. Basically, you switch from the C# minor chord (the third tone is a "B" natural) to the F#13 chord (the third tone is simply lowered to "A#" and the bass to "F#). Here is a summary: C#min9 −−> F#13 (Bass: C# Right hand: E + G# + B + D#) −−> (Bass: F# Right hand: E + G# + A# + D#) Try it out ... I think you'll agree that it's pretty "groovy!" 8

#3 of 13 "The Ab Major Ninth Chord" While I have titled this tip "The Abmaj9 Chord," it can literally be played in all 12 keys. Instead of playing the regular Ab major triad all the time, why not add a ninth tone to it? Here's how to do it: The Ab triad is as follow: Bass = Ab Right hand = Ab + C + Eb Remember, the ninth tone is the same as the second tone. It is just an octave higher. However, my trick is this: a) I don't link playing the ninth tone as the highest note (only sometimes when it sounds needed). b) I prefer "squeezing" it into the middle of the chord. The chord sounds much more complete this way. c) The ninth tone is Bb d) So, simply squeeze it in after the Ab (look below): "The Ab Major Ninth Chord" Bass = Ab Right hand = Ab + "Bb" + C + Eb Now ... replace your regular Ab chords with this one and notice the difference! 9

#4 of 13 "The Shouting Chord" I ALWAYS (I mean always) play this chord at church when playing during a jubilant period of the worship service. It's simply a dominant chord with an added "flat 5th" tone. Now ... the trick is that you don't play all the tones of the dominant chord. JUST certain tones sound right and I'm going to show you which ones they are below: In Ab Major: Bass: There isn't a particular bass for this chord. It can be played over a "running" bass if it is being used as a "fill−in" for shouting music OR ... it can be played in a blues progression. Keep in mind that this chord is just a "fill in." Play it when it "feels" right... Right hand: Ab + D + Eb + Gb Note: This chord should be played on the upper part of the piano (not too high but definitely not too low). Test it out at different locations for the best possible sound, ok? Here's one more trick with the chord above: If you play the "D" just a split−second before the rest of the chord, it creates a nice "blues" effect. Try it: Ab + (D) + Eb + Gb Note: (" ") means to play JUST that one note a split−second before the rest of the chord. It sounds great! Good luck with this one. 10
