This lesson is definitely for the more advanced players but there are some real gems among these piano hacks, expertly taught and so wonderfully played by Corey Taylor, one of the finest players in the YouTube gospel genre.
I’ve watched this video several times and now I really need to get busy and working on some of these hacks myself. Let me know how you get on!
I like Josef’s teaching style and enthusiasm and this is an interesting and very simple technique that makes simple chords sound very much richer and more interesting. He demonstrates how playing a power chord (root and fifth) in each hand is used in a number of memorable Coldplay riffs.
Jeff is a great teacher and player and the subject of reharmonization fascinates me and is something I am working on improving myself. Jeff shows you a few tricks to change the chords of a traditional tune sound much more contemporary.
Here is a detailed review of all of the musical intervals demonstrated on the piano keyboard. For each interval we’ll study how it is constructed, listen to the characteristics of the sound and play some songs that utilize each interval.
Follow up the video with a fun musical quiz that tests your ear training and knowledge of the intervals. I’ve created 20 questions to test how well can you hear intervals played on the piano, and if you can sing the intervals when asked. Best of luck!
Another piano lesson in the form of a demonstration how to play 5 of my picks for the most epic electric piano riffs. I’ll show you an overhead view of the piano, plus falling note and musical notation displays.
