In this lesson, we will show you how to form the basic major and minor chords using the numeral formula.
The augmented chord has a distinctive 'hanging in the air' sound, while the diminished chord has that horror flick sound. As the chord name suspended suggests, the suspended chord gives a suspense feel that needs to be resolved immediately. If you have come so far in this lesson, and you understand the difference between the seventh, the minor seventh, and major seventh, the rest of the chords from now will be quite self explanatory!
1) Try yourself to form the other combinations of chords, like #5(b9), maj11, maj13(#11), and so on. 3) If you have to start somewhere, it will be very ideal to memorise the chord formula before you start memorising every chord 1 by 1. 6) The best way to learn chords is to apply them in a song, rather than to play all of them in series of practise (1by1). A useful point to note is the fact that the 5th of the ii chord and the 9th of the V chord are the same note, making voice leading smooth and easy to figure out! You’ll hear that the additional one or two notes to the chords makes a big difference to the sound that is created when you play the progressions. The more you read about, practice and listen to jazz harmonies, the more you will see and understand just how much diversity there is in the harmonic choices that you have when you are accompanying yourself or somebody else at the piano. Some specific examples of some questions that you will want to ask yourself are as follows.
There are many more questions to ask and I realise now that I will definitely need to do a separate lesson on this topic! Firstly, as always, take these to the grid. Practicing them in this way will give you great fluency in these voicings in all keys.
Pupils with this inclination are in the minority, but there will still be enough of you reading this for it to be worth me giving you this warning.

You could also play the fundamental with the left and the chord with the right hand to learn to harmonize the melody or to accompany a singer or another musician. Study all these progressions of II-V-I in major key and practice to play them on famous jazz standards.
Remember the most important notes of a chord are the third one and the seventh one that determine the mode (major or minor) and the type of chord.
In music and art the complexity is generally synonym of ugliness, unnatural, difficulty of understanding.
For example, I do not like the sound of the sixth on the dominant seventh chord and I do not often use it, replacing it with the fifth or omitting both the sixth one and the fifth.
Besides you can often omit the fifth on the minor and major seventh chords, the fifth or the ninth in dominant seventh chords.
I will publish soon in another pages half diminished ,diminished seventh and altered chord voicings. Here's the problem: I tried some googling for solo piano voicing and stuff, and mostly I get results for rootless voicings or other things. I didn't know how to voice a Fmaj7 in second inversion (CEFA sounds bad), so I substituted with a C6, which sounds fine.
The (mostly) stacked-thirds rooted voicings in your post have their occasional place, but a steady diet of that will quickly grow tiresome.
The basic voicings for jazz piano are, as Mike A says, shells using the root with the 3 or 7.
Actually the reason I did voicings in the left hand only is because I wanted to start as simple as possible, but I'll be sure to try these ones too.


Here's a question: Suppose I deliberately want to keep the comping in the left hand, do you suggest to stack all the voices in one hand or to play just the shells (1-7 and 1-3, these are the shells, right?) and leave the rest out? But unless you're soloing and therefore comping for yourself it would be unusual to play comps in the left hand alone. I know I can play a rootless dominant anytime, because the tritone is sufficent to make it sound like a dominant, but do you mean it can work with other chords too? If you're playing solo, you can't get away with using rootless voicings indefinitely, but you can certainly use rootless voicings as part of the mix.
As you know, this is an express lesson, and we suggest you should not be bothered too much about the theory behind everything for now, therea€™s too much to absorb. It is important to know the rest of the other more complex chords actually derive from either a major or minor chord. In summary, there are four basic types of 7th chords a€“ Dominant seventh, major seventh, minor seventh, diminished seventh. The seventh flat fifth and minor seventh flat fifth are altered chords, with a flat seven and a flat fifth on a major and a minor triad respectively.
Leta€™s put it in an easier way to understand, the 9th, 11th and 13th is mathematically the same as the 2nd, 4th and 6th. If you follow the formulas accordingly, you should be able to form any combination of chords! Because there are more than a few hundred different chords, you won't be able to remember all of them until you are very experienced. In part 1, we started with the 3 notes needed to identify the quality of the chords and played only these – the root, the 3rd and the 7th. It is crucial to your musical development that you become aware of these choices, and that you are able to make sound, tasteful harmonic choices, depending on the musical situation that you find yourself in. Well, make a point of listening to jazz records and consciously registering certain things that are going on.
However, we are now at a point in this series where we need to apply these voicings to tunes (see part 3).
Practising isolated chord progressions in systems like the grid, or any systemic practising like scales, patterns etc.
Systematic practice of any kind, whether it be harmonic as with these chord progressions, or melodic as with scales and sequences, is purely a means to an end. The most important thing is that you find a way of learning music that works for you and that you enjoy. Its aim is to provide quality free piano lessons, as well as to review the best premium lessons on the web. Keep in mind the chord of the left hand must be played as near as around the central C(C4) and it has to contain the central C inside (in virtual way, if the C does not belong to the chord), to avoid cacophony. Certainly there are also other chords besides minor seventh, dominant seventh or major seventh: in another pages I will treat about the half diminished, diminished and altered seventh chord voicings (with augmented fifth and ninth or minor ninth). Therefore you should never miss these two notes in the chord, except if, for example, you need to play a sus4 chord: in this case the third is omitted leaving the place to the fourth note. So you do not need to exaggerate in the use of dissonances inside chords, even if you are playing some modern jazz. I am a guitarist, I have no problem in improvising a melody, but I need some help with comping.
Ita€™s more important that you are able to form the chords quickly and be able to play them first. If you like to practise on these chords, you should start with the 6 basic chords - C major, F major, G major, D minor, E minor and A minor. The suspended chord is also commonly known as sus4, and that 4th note is the note responsible for that suspense.


The minor seventh flat fifth is also commonly known as half diminished seventh, which is commonly used in many Jazz chord progressions.
So if you have a chord C add9, ita€™s a€?quitea€™ the same as adding a 2nd note to C chord.
Sometimes when chords get a little huge for example a Cmaj13, you should break it up into 2 separate chords, and learn it that way.
I will go into this in more detail in a future lesson, but for now, let me at least give you some direction in how to improve in this area.
It will massively increase your musical awareness and help you to become a more tasteful and musical piano player. We practice these things so that we can be more fluent in our approach to learning and playing music, not so that we can become more able to play increasingly complex exercises! However, as a rule of thumb, I would say that you may be placing too much emphasis on systematised practice if you are spending more than 50% of your practice time on these things. It is the best book on jazz piano playing that money can buy, it’s as simple as that! They are chords that derive above all from Bill Evan’s voicings in which the ninth is added into the minor seventh chord, the sixth and the ninth into the dominant seventh chord. What they lack is the spice and momentum of voicings that jazz musicians have evolved and found most interesting over the years. If you play that in your right hand with either an F or D in your left hand it will sound fine. In most popular styles, the suspend chord usually resolves back to the original major chord. And for chords with more than 4 notes, there are several different chord voicings to play with. Another example, although there are 12 dim7th chords, every four dim7th chords are completely identical to each other. I strongly recommend that you do study that lesson before continuing on to this one, even if you are an experienced jazzer. If the pianist is accompanying a soloist, how are the voicings related to the timbre and range of the solo instrument? It is because of how effective this kind of practice is that it holds so much appeal, but you must be careful that it does not become an obsession. And when you play a song in a key of C, these are the 6 basic chords you will use more often than any other chords. In the next few page of this lesson, the rest of the other chords that you will be learning are either alterations or additions to the 4 basic triads. That makes life so much easier, because you only need to memorize one dim7th chord to know all four dim7th chords.
How does what the piano player is playing relate to the other things that are going on in the piece at the time, and the general characteristics of the piece? All kinds of systematising in practice are very attractive to this student, and practicing systems and exercises can become an obsession. The danger is that you end up spending so much time on practicing and learning technical exercises that you don’t spend enough time on practicing and learning actual music pieces!
Practising the 3 note voicings in the way that I recommend provides a foundation for harmonic fluency that you will enjoy for years to come!
