  2. The Piano Chord Book says:

    I understand. I would suggest that you start the song on middle C. Middle C
    is the C closest to the center of the piano keyboard, a little more than 3
    octaves up from the lowest note on the piano. If you start the song on
    middle C it will be in a good register. The notes would be as follows
    (right hand finger #’s in parenthesis) C(1) – C(1) – G(5) – G(5) – A(5) –
    A(5) G(5), F(4) – F(4) – E(3) – E(3) – D(2) – D(2) – C(1), etc. I hope that
    helps. Thanks for watching!

    thanks for the reply 🙂 but how will i know if im gonna place my finger in
    in C(5right) then next to F(4)

  4. The Piano Chord Book says:

    The note C should always be played using finger 1. When you put your right
    hand thumb(1) on C and lay the rest of your fingers across the keyboard,
    letting them fall naturally each on a key of their own, they should look
    like this: C(1) – D(2) – E(3) – F(4) – G(5). Using this as your basic
    position should help you finger the whole song. The only adjustment you
    will need to make is when you reach with 5 to get to the A. Hope that
    helps! Thanks for watching!

    my home work from my piano teacher is to compose a short song using the 4
    chords ive done that easily but i dont no how to write double beat chords i
    need the first 1 & in G if that makes sense ? does any one no ????

  10. The Piano Chord Book says:

    Hello Jenn, I’d love to help you but I am not sure what you mean by double
    beat chords. When you are notating a chord on a staff you stack the notes
    on top of each other. This signifies that they occur at the same moment.
    So, if you had a G chord that occurred on the “1” and the “&” of a measure,
    it sounds like you are referring to eighth notes. That would be G, B, and D
    stacked on top of each other, written two times and connected with a bar.
    Hope that helps. Thanks for watching & God bless!
