Whoa! Wanna know a chord? Check this download-able chart out

Post by JohnA on Fri Sep 05, 2008 4:43 pm

Chords have been giving me a bit of a headache trying to work out which chord is which and how to make a chord etc.... And that's just with Major, Minor triads let-alone diminished, augmented, suspended, major/minor sevenths etc....
But while reading about chords in wikipedia I came across this awesome link that allows you to create a printed sheet of EVERY, and I mean EVERY, single chord for the keyboard. Check it out here:

For the keyboard?

Nice find though.

Its actually easy to figure out what chord is what if you learn the formulas. Smile

I don't think it is any different for the piano! They do have the same keys after all...

But just for some practice for you, work out the augmented chord of 9th 3rd inversion in Bflat....GO! you've got 3 seconds....3...2...1 times-up!. Laughing

I cant play that with my hand. Thats like 3 keys with two fingers and eight keys with my palm.

The "keyboard?" thing was a sarcastic joke. I always argue that Im a pianist, and not a keyboardist. Smile

The case I got my piano in said "digital piano" and I practice with settings on grand 1. Therefore - I am a pianist. Very Happy

I know the formulas for triads, maj/min/aug/dim.

And I think I know the same for 7th chords too. Andrew teaches it in one of his lessons. Smile

Glad I could help. I might buy the proper print version as I think it could come in handy at times, especially when trying to get accustomed to new chords.

re: Christian: Hindsight after reading I thought you might be being sarcastic! :lol. My Grand Piano is amazing...A pure keyboard M-Audio keystation 88es! It doesn't even have a synth so the computer has to make the sound for me. It does sound very real though. I use garageband on the mac which has a Grand Piano EXS file... basically a true digital recording of every key recorded on the piano rather than a digital sounding synthetic sound. Sounds great when I pipe it through my stereo. Saving the pennies though to buy a baby grand one day.

A yes. The dream of owning a grand piano.

I had one in my classroom last year. Also had a concert pianist come play it and I sat 0,5m from him and the keys. Very Happy

Off potic! Razz
