If you check out our other lessons, you’ll see that I talk quite a bit about Music Theory, Chords, Chord Voicings etc. And the truth is that it’s best to first get a solid musical education on the piano. That way, you can be musically creative, and do anything you want on the keyboard!
The concept of “Muscle Memory” is a concept that teaches your hands to play chords and fills on the keyboard without having to think about it – that’s why it’s such a powerful technique.
Here’s an example where “Muscle Memory” might be really helpful-
Let’s say you’re playing in some sort of musical situation, and you find that you’re way over your head. Maybe you’re playing with a band, and the tempo is really fast. Maybe you don’t know the material real well, etc.
In this case, are you going to have a lot of time to think about each chord or chord voicing? Probably not. This is where “Muscle Memory” comes in. Check out this piano lesson video – we’ll be explaining how the use of templates can really get these chord shapes out of your head and into your hands!
In this second half of the preview for this lesson, we’ll dig into some of the specifics. We’ll look at the section detailing what a template is, and how they are used.
In addition, we’ll also look at the section of this piano lesson that deals with Right Hand techniques. Enjoy!
