We’ll build on this piano chord with unique new voicings that bring powerful new sounds to the keyboard.
Another highlight of this video keyboard lesson is expansion of the blues scales. To this point, we’ve looked at using standard blues scales to develop solos and blues riffs on the keyboard.
By learning a simple technique (see video), you can play another version of the blues scale over any dominant 9 or dominant 13 chord. By doing this, you’ll incorporate many of the higher scale extension notes into your solos and riffs on the keyboard.
“Chromatic chord movement” is another tasty trick we’ll be studying. This technique is not only very useful on the keyboard, but it’s also a great chord voicing exercise for your hands.
By learning to move chords chromatically, you can establish an “endless groove” on the keyboard. A benefit of working with “Chromatic chord movement” is that it really helps to cement the shapes of chord voicings into your hands.
We’ll also be digging into the very exciting world of learning to create your own new chord voicings. Rather than simply hunt for new voicings, this lesson will show you effective techniques on the keyboard to modify existing chord voicings to create brand new sounds!
