If you haven’t done so already, I highly recommend you watch and listen as well to the video. Be sure to also scroll down to explore a bunch of extra to help you learn more about this left hand arpeggiation pattern and playing this Beatles piano song. If you want an example of how to do this please watch the video above or take a look at the first F chord in the Yesterday sheet music. Essentially, you arpeggiate a left hand chord by playing the bottom note first, then the top note, then the middle note, and then the top note again…just like we do in the video above.
Often times the alberti bass features block piano chords more toward the middle of the piano. If you’re a beginner to piano and want to learn more about how to play these block chords out my lesson on lesson on the F major piano chord and the C piano chord. If you want to learn more about how to use the 9th check out this lesson on how to decorate major chords using the 9th. I hope you had fun with this Beatles piano lesson and had fun learning the left hand arpeggio pattern. If I get enough requests I’ll teach you how to play the B section of Yesterday in another lesson.
Steve many thanks for showing this tutorial on the Beatles song Yesterday hopefully you will do some more Beatles Tunes or what about Jealous Guy by John Lennon.
Hi Steve I would appreciate to send the whole song of yesterday, I’m learning a lot with their lessons.

Free Online Piano Lessons – Discover How To Play Piano in a Way That Fits Your Busy Lifestyle! A page of music has a lot of symbols and notations that are easily interpreted when you know a few basics. When you learn how to read music, you also need to know the rhythm a piece should be played. Note: This simple explanation only applies when the top number is 4 and under- simple time.
A sharp () is a sign which is written in front of a note and raises the pitch of that note by one half-step. The flat, sharp and natural symbols are referred to as accidentals and only affect the note in the same octave in which it has been written. There are times when a composer may want you to flat (or sharpen, #) all of the B’s, for example, in a particular piece.
As you can see, the speed notation is the composer’s attempt to convey the feel at which the piece should be played.
Playing the piano seeks to express and convey emotion and feeling through the music; so many times the composer will user emotional words and leaves it up to the musician to translate that into an appropriate tempo. The numbers above the notes on the treble staff are typically for the right hand and numbers about the notes on the bass staff.
Liberace would always play his piano with ascending or descending notes or keys in a sweeping motion using his thumb or other finger running it right down or up the piano keyboard in very fast motion.
I am beginner and find it damn easy to follow though I may have to read many times with practical to digest the whole lecture. What the deal with that rest note with the 2 dots on top of those 2 notes how does that effect them? On the end there is a whole note yet there's a half (correct me if I'm wrong cause wiki says its a eighth note but it seems to not sound right) why is that there? Thank you everyone for posting on my last post but I think I should have put the piece I wanted before asking questions. There can be up to 7 sharps (or flats, which look like a flattened, lower-case 'b') in the key signature, and they always appear in the same order: sharps are FCGDAEB.
This is different from a tie, which connects two or more of the same note written in series, simply by extending the rhythmic duration. The double-dotted half rest (which has a duration of three and a half beats) at the top of bar 2 is kind of a weird editorial decision, but it indicates a second voice, so that the rhythmic durations in that bar do not collide.
The 2 hash signs at the beginning of each line is the key signature, and is dictating that these will sharp (raise by a half step) all notes on those lines (F and C raised to F# and C#). The eighth note at the beginning is a note that is just applied before the first measure as a pre-addition (prelude) before the first measure starts. As indicated in previous point, the first note has duration only one eighth, but the bow above means that all the notes under the bow will hang together (not separating them with a noticeable attack). The double-dotted half measure is to fill the void before the eight note preluding the next measure. Note: With all the explanations in mind, you will see that the first 2 measures are basically equal to the next 2 measures.

The major piano chords are considered to be the optimistic chords (This is a very general statement).

So I would basically skip the D key with my 2nd finger and play the E key with my third finger.
When I play these three notes together C,E and G I'll hear that familiar optimistic sound that connect in my mind with major chords. First try to find the major third interval with your 1st and third fingers of your right hand. In the piano tutorials I'm going to present the chords that are playing a part in the tutorial.
People want to learn how to play chords in order to be able to play any song they desire easily. Once you learn the symbols and understand how they are formed, you'll see that they are not so complicated. In order to learn how to read piano chords, you must learn what all the letters, numbers and symbols mean.
To make the C major chord, you take the first note of the C major scale (C), the third note (E), and the fifth note (G).
Recent ArticlesLearning Piano And The Importance Of Realistic ExpectationsUnrealistic expectations all too often result in frustration and discouragement.
Would you like to learn a super cool left hand piano pattern to help you expand your piano arrangements? I’ll show you how to play the verse (A Section) of Yesterday and teach you how to expand these chords. A very important part of learning contemporary styles is to listen as well as read the music.
This left hand arpeggio pattern I teach you in this lesson is actually quite similar to an alberti bass pattern.
Along these lines if you wanted to simplify this arrangement more you could just play block chords in your left hand and note even worry about arpeggiating. The left hand piano pattern I teach in this video could theoretically work well at different tempos but it will particularly work great on ballads.
If your hands are too small to grab the expanded left hand chords just roll your hands and use the sustain pedal to help you.
Notice how the melody starts on a non chord tone (the 9th of the chord) and then eventually resolves down to the root.
If you want to learn more about some pop piano techniques I also recommend you check out this piano lesson on Margaritaville.
I recommend you spend some time practicing Yesterday and also applying the left hand arpeggio pattern to other songs you enjoy.
If your audio is not syncing with the video it has something to do with your current setup.
The Staff with the Treble Clef combined with the Bass Clef make what’s called the Grand Staff. They do not affect the same note in other octaves unless they have been labeled with an accidental. In such a case there is a shortcut that eliminates the necessity for using a flat symbol every time a B appears. Looking at a page of music and understanding it will be easy once you know these definitions. In order to post comments, please make sure JavaScript and Cookies are enabled, and reload the page. In this case, all F's and C's are sharped unless they have an accidental (sharp, flat, or natural) next to them. The first dot tells you to add half of the length of the rest to the rest.The second dot tells you to add half of the half to the rest (a quarter). Because a beat in this piece is a crotchet, half of a beat would be a quaver and that is where you get the quaver F#. It indicates that those notes form a phrase, and should be played so that they are connected together. This is being done to connect the chord on beat 4 of bar 1 so that its duration extends through bar 2. The eighth-note (or half-beat) pickup note at the very beginning is called the "pickup to bar 1"). It's a bit counter-intuitive when you get into other time signatures, but that's just the way it is. It would be impossible to sing it as written - you can't rest and sing simultaneously !
Imagine an F note (on piano) as the white one to the left of 3 blacks - this F gets sharpened and is now played as the left one of the 3 blacks.
That line is a phrase line - if you were to sing the tune, you would not take a breath till you got to the end of that curved line - it's somewhat like a comma in writing. It's supposed to mean do nothing till you play the next note (another F# !!), but since there are other things going on, and the music isn't split into SATB, it's a waste.
This could be written by a double-dotted half pause first to give a full measure, but how you see here is more common when it's just a sort of quick prelude into the first full measure.
You see that there is an extra bow on the last quarter note in the measure that ties over to the whole note in the next measure, which means that this is basically the same note that should be played as one without separation.
We'll focus on triads, especially major and minor triads, which are the most common chords.

If you're interested in more practical understanding of the subject, I recommend Learn & Master Piano with Will Barrow. We’ll also talk about some piano technique tips to help you grab the left hand piano chords more easily. Please also note that I simplified the melody in this arrangement to make it a little easier so everybody can play it. If you’ve played classical music before you should be quite familiar with this concept. By starting the melody on a non chord tone Paul McCartney creates a really subtle need for resolution and it propels the arrangement forward. It’s been used in hundreds of popular songs in both rock, pop, classical, jazz, and many other genres. Whether you are learning to play the piano through the classic method or the chord method, you’ll have to be familiar with how to read music.
This is why a natural is needed, just in case you happen to need the same note again in the same octave but without any variation in tone.
In some case, the dynamic level is related to the mood; in other cases the mark is much more direct. Now the error: on a piano, legato has nothing to do with pressing gently and softening the attack.
You do not need to sustain every note you play until the end of the slur; it simply indicates a melodic line.
If there was no rest there, then the whole-note chord would have to be an eighth-note shorter to make room for the F# eighth-note pickup to bar 3.
This is notated as a separate voice ,which means that the first part of the measure, the voice that belongs to the eight note needs a double-dottet half rest to fill the first part of the measure. This way of doing it normally indicates a separate voice, but is here done to indicate that the eight should be played before the two whole notes end because they should last throughout the entire measure.
This means that the first dot will add the duration of half of the half pause (which is a quarter). Make sure you’re running the latest version of your browser and restart your browser. We do not use or store email addresses from this form for any other purpose than sending your share email. To cancel a flat or sharp, a natural ( ) is placed on the staff before the note it is to affect or when a new measure begins. They are generally at the beginning of a measure (and at the beginning of the music) and usually located in the space between the treble and bass staffs. Think of it as taking a half of a beat from the last measure and tagging it in front of the first measure.
Every now and then it reads ff at the beginning of a giant slur, and Beethoven (for example) has the habit of placing sfs under slurs. The way it's written, that bar has a bottom voice that plays the F#-A chord for four beats, and a top voice that rests until playing in the last eighth-note in the bar.
So, assuming we're still talking about bar 2 or 4, the double-dotted half rest above the whole note indicates that there is a second voice above the whole note, thus none of the rhythm of that voice will conflict with the whole-note chord below it.
All these are white keys on the keyboard(natural notes); there are no flats or sharps in a C major scale. Also, the videos are in HD so there is a possibility that your internet connection may lag a bit. If the same note is always going to be sharp or flat, music writers use key signatures to indicate once and for all (see below). Once set, it’s in effect until another dynamic symbol is display or for the entire piece. Do note, however, that some editors would have considered that to be obvious, and left out the double-dotted half rest. C sharp and D flat are the same key and will produce the same note when played on a keyboard. The last 0.5 beat is the eighth note at the end to add up to the full 4 beats in the measure. 9x12 inches.It wouldn't be Christmas without the beloved animated classic A Charlie Brown Christmas!
