Lesson 9: Understanding Chord Titles

You may have noticed that chords come in 2 parts.
1) The key.
2)The chord symbol.

You learned about key signatures in the last lesson. They are important for you to figure out what notes are in a chord. You have also learned about scales. That will also help you in chords.

Here's the video lesson about understanding chord titles:

Now to practice. First, practice finding these chords:

1. C, Cm, C4, C7, CM7, Cm7, C6.

2. G, Gm, G4, G7, GM7, Gm7, G6.

You can check if you have them right on this page:

Next, find another song that you like. Try and figure out the chords for it. Try playing it.

If you missed checking out the chord course, go to Piano Power Chords.
