Using the Piano Chords Dictionary, I have created a minimum set of chords which could be used as a base for learning to play piano. Now, that I am more active in the Lao music community, finding what I need is much easier and cheaper too. I have compiled a piano chords chart containing the two most important chords that you will ever learn, the major and minor chord.
The reason for this is because each chord is a derivative, or built from, the major chord or minor chord. The Cmaj7 contains the exact same notes as the C Major Chord, with only one additional note. This is just one example of how once you learn major and minors you can then use the foundation of those two chords to start building more difficult and complex chords. There is a whole lot more then just knowing the notes in the printable piano chord chart, such as Fingering, Inversions, and so on. You could download the keyboard chord chart from this post and start practice playing them. After many hours of frustration I was able to locate a website in Los Angeles that offers to sell Lao music styles. If you would like to share yours with the community please shoot me an email and I will post it. I've been in concert band in high school playing the trumpet, french horn and trombone and I'm not an idiot when it comes to music but I've never been as good as others, I could never invest the time others seemed to have. I'd certainly love to, though having no piano at hand anywhere in my family, and the lessons themselves being far too expensive--or too far away--it's a long time before I'll attempt such an endeavour.

I would suggest you start out with learning these chords first – Dm F Gm Am C Bb – When you learn these five chords you could play just about all Lao country songs out there because with the keyboard you could use the transpose button for scaling the notes. Because of the density of the black keys in the chart, you should be careful not to print these charts too often.You can also lower the density of the printing in your printer settings.
I never learned theory or anything like that, I read the notes on the sheet that was in front of me in whatever key it was in, I can't transpose or anything awesome like that. You can learn to play any piece of music if you have the notes in front of you and enough time.
Anyway, if you're not interested in all that theory jargon, you can teach yourself to play Piano and probably bang out a song in the first few days. You will be able to recognize each chord and the shape that it makes on the staff without reading the notes individually or taking the time to study the sheet music. Search through the printer settings and find where you can adjust the quality of the images.
I'ts not something you really need to know before you start, you could begin playing and slowly adding to your theory knowledge and still play some pretty complex songs. I can play Joe Pass or  Steve Howe pretty competently, but for the life of me I could not properly tell you what a mode is.
Theory makes it easier, but just knowing the notes on the piano and how to read music is enough. And if I want to get the chords for the song I would mute all the channels except for the guitar chord. Use a lesser quality printer setting to use less ink.Print out the printable piano chord and leave it with you at the piano.

Basically my question in this overly long topic for a simple question is how much does theory and such factor in a pianist playing? I got really sick of not knowing this shit, and so I've been learning this year a bit more seriously then in the past. It seems any pianist I've met always knows like every cord and are just generally fantastic musicians. I know that there are some people who play without any theory just by ear but I can't even imagine that.
I play and enjoy music so much more because of this. You can do as you want and just play - and you'll get really good - but you'll always be stuck with paper in front of you. If you want to be the kind of person who can sight read anything, or play music just from hearing it, then there are only two possibilities: 1) you have to be a musical prodigy with natural talent or 2) you need theory. Like just simpler songs, I'm not trying to master moonlight sonata or anything of that caliber. Learn to play all of the major scales, then the minors, plus their chords, and you'll be in pretty decent shape. There are so many runs and sequences in music (especially popular music) that are just parts of a scale or notes in a chord. Being able to pick them out as you're going makes learning and playing a piece of music much easier.
