Zayn Dusk Till Dawn ft. Sia Easy Piano Notes -Tutorial

Welcome to another easy piano tutorial. We will take a look at the song, Dusk Till Dawn by Zayn featuring Sia. You will find notes for this song below (in letters), starting with the notes of the melody, followed by the left hand part.

Since the notes below do not really indicate timing and length of note as sheet music would do, you would need to be familiar with the actual song first of all. Listen to the song many times until you have a firm grasp of its melody in your head, then check out the notes below as well as the video tutorials. The notes below are the same as that of the video tutorials (and the song for that matter).

Learn 10 Types Of Piano Chords Fast In 1 Easy Lesson

The following lesson, Learn 10 Types Of Piano Chords Fast In 1 Easy Lesson, is based on a video lesson. I’ve put it in text format as well for your convenience, and you can also watch the embedded video below.

I’d like to welcome you to another piano lesson. In this lesson we will take a look at ten different types of chords. These are chords that you should absolutely know. We will start with major chords, then move to minor, diminished, augmented, suspended 2nd, suspended 4th, dominant 7th, major 7th, minor 7th, and major 6th chords.

I will simplify this. This topic is often presented with difficulty, but I’m going to make it very easy for you. I will do this in the key of C major. I will show you how easy it is to form these ten types of chords. No hassle. No stress.

Let’s learn how to play ten types of chords and we will do it easily and quickly. First of all, we will start with the C major scale. The notes of the C major scale are C D E F G A B. C is note 1, D is note 2, E is note 3, F is note 4, G is note 5, A is note 6 and B is note 7. To form chords, you start with the major scale.

Video: Learn 10 Types Of Piano Chords Fast In 1 Easy Lesson

We will mainly use the C major scale for this lesson but you can form chords using any major scale. For instance, you can start with the F major scale, F G A Bb C D E, or the G major scale, G A B C D E F#. As long as you know your major scale, you can use the formulas we will take a look at in a while to form your chords.

The first chord we will start with is the C major chord. Remember we’re using the C major scale. The notes of the C major chord are C-E-G. I’m using notes 1, 3 and 5 of the major scale to form the major chord. C is note 1, E is note 3, and G is note 5 of the major scale.

The next chord you will learn is the C minor chord. I’m using notes 1, the flatted third (flat 3) and 5 of the major scale. The notes are C, Eb (E flat) and G. So instead of playing the third, I’m playing the flatted third. In other words, I am playing the middle note a half step lower. So instead of C-E-G (1-3-5), I’m playing C-Eb-G (1-b3-5).

By the way, to take your piano playing to the next level, click here to learn about the Piano For All piano course. This course will help you play better.

We already know how to play two types of piano chords, the major and the minor chord. We now move to the diminished chord. To form this chord, you play the first note of the scale (or the root), the flatted third and the flatted fifth. The notes of C diminished are C, Eb and Gb. The formula is 1-b3-b5. E is the third and Eb is the flatted third. G is the 5th and Gb is the flatted fifth.

The next chord you will learn is the augmented chord. To form an augmented chord, you play notes 1, 3 and #5. The notes of the C augmented chord are C, E and G# (G sharp). G is the fifth and G# is the sharp fifth. It’s as simple as that.

You now know how to play four different types of chords, namely, major (1-3-5), minor (1-b3-5), diminished (1-b3-b5) and augmented (1-3-#5). In terms of notes, it’s C major (C-E-G), C minor (C-Eb-G), C diminished (C-Eb-Gb) and C augmented (C-E-G#).

We could have formed piano chords (keyboard chords) using the F major scale, F G A Bb C D E. So using the formula, 1-3-5, the notes of the F major chord are F-A-C. Using the formula, 1-b3-5, the notes of the F minor chord are F-Ab-C. To form Fdim, use the formula 1-b3-b5; these gives us the notes, F, Ab and Cb. To form Faug, use the formula, 1-3-#5, and this results in the notes, F, A and C#.

Let’s form these four types of chords using the G major scale, G A B C D E F#. Notes 1, 3 and 5 of the G major scale are G, B and D; this is a G major chord. To form G minor, play notes 1, b3 and 5 or G, Bb and D. To form G diminished, play notes 1, b3 and b5, or G, Bb and Db. To form G augmented, play notes 1, 3 and #5 or G, B and D#. It’s as simple as that.

We will now take a look at two types of suspended chords They are suspended 2nd (sus2) and suspended 4th (sus4) chords. Let’s go back to the C major scale. C, D and G played together is a C suspended chord (Csus2 chord). C is note 1, D is note 2 and G is note 5. The formula is 1-2-5. Move from a Csus2 chord to a C major chord to hear how beautiful it sounds.

On the other hand, C, F and G played together is a C suspended 4th (Csus4) chord. You play notes 1, 4 and 5 of the major scale. C is note 1, F is note 4 and G is note 5.

Let’s form suspended chords using the F major scale. To form an Fsus2 chord, play F, G and C. F is note 1, G is note 2 and C is note 5 of the scale. To form an Fsus4 chord, play F, Bb and C. How about the G major scale? For Gsus2, the notes are G, A and D. For Gsus4, the notes are G, C and D. Remember that it’s 1-2-5 for a suspended second chord and 1-4-5 for a suspended fourth chord.

The next chord you will learn is the dominant 7th chord. The notes of the Cdom7 (C dominant 7th) chord are C, E, G and Bb. The formula is 1-3-5-b7. The flatted 7th is Bb. Not B, but B flat. B is the 7th and Bb is the flatted 7th. B flat is one half step lower than B.

Let’s take a look at another type of chord, the major 7th chord. To form a major 7th (maj7) chord, play notes 1, 3, 5 and 7 of the major scale (1-3-5-7). The notes of the Cmaj7 chord are therefore C-E-G-B. Clearly, C is note 1, E is note 3, G is note 5 and B is note 7 of the major scale. For an F major 7th chord, the notes are F-A-C-E. For a G major chord, the note are G-B-D-F#.

You will now learn how to play a minor 7th (m7) chord. To form a min7 chord, play notes 1, b3, 5 and b7 of the major scale. The formula is 1-b3-5-b7. For a Cmin7 chord, the notes are C-Eb-G-Bb. This chord is really a minor chord plus the flatted 7th. For Fm7, it’s F-Ab-C-Eb. For Gm7, it’s G-Bb-D-F.

The last type of chord we will learn is the major 6th chord. Play notes 1, 3, 5 and 6 (1-3-5-6). Therefore, C-E-G-A is a C6 chord, F-A-C-D is an F6 chord and G-B-D-E is a G6 chord. You play the root, the third, the fifth and the sixth of the major scale.

I want you to practice these ten types of chords (major, minor, diminished, augmented, sus2, sus4, dom7, maj7, min7 and maj6) in different scales. Use this lesson as a foundation to practice forming chords in different scales.

Ten Types Of Piano Chords That You Should Know And How To Form Them

Here’s the transcript for a video lesson I made entitled, Ten Piano Chords That You Should Know And How To Form Them. You will learn how to form chords quickly and easily on piano and keyboard. You can watch the video below.

Hi and welcome. In this lesson you will learn how to form ten different types of chords. By the way if you haven’t subscribed to this channel, I invite you to do so. Subscribe here: YouTube.com/pianokeyboardlessons.

Okay, let’s go. The ten types of chords we will learn are major, minor, diminished, augmented, sus2, sus4, domininant 7th, major 7th, major 6th and minor 6th chords. Now don’t let all these terms confuse you; it is really easy. I will show you how easy it is to learn all these ten chords. It is really easy! Okay? Nothing hard about it. Don’t be frightened.

(We will also learn about minor 7th chords. I did this piano chords lesson on the spur of the moment without any script and ended up not including the minor 7th chord. I will include it here.)

The first thing we’ll start with is the major scale. We will use the C major scale for this. This is the C major scale: C D E F G A B and you go to C. C is note 1, D is note 2, E is note 3, F is note 4, G is note 5, A is note 6 and B is note 7 of the scale. Then we go to C which is the same number 1 in a higher octave or you can call it 8. But it’s C D E F G A B, a total of 7 notes. We will use these 7 notes to form the chord.

Watch the video: 

By the way, there are different major scales. But it’s really the same thing. There’s a D major scale (D E F# G A B C#). There’s an F major scale (F G A Bb C D E). There’s a G major scale (G A B C D E F#). Okay? But (for the purpose of this lesson and to keep things simple) we will use the C major scale.

To form our first chord, the major chord, you use notes, 1, 3 and 5 of the scale. So C-E-G is a C major chord. C is note 1, E is note 3, and G is note 5. It’s that simple. You play notes 1, 3 and 5 and this is how you form a major chord in any scale, whether it’s a C major scale, D major scale, F major scale or any other. Just play notes 1, 3 and 5 of the major scale.

By the way, to take your piano playing to the next level, click here to learn about the Piano For All piano course. This course will really hep you play better.

The next chord we will learn is the minor chord. To form a minor chord you play notes 1, flat 3 (b3) and 5 of the scale. So C-Eb-G is a C minor chord. C is note 1, Eb is note b3 and G is note 5. (b3 stands for flat three or flat third.) So instead of playing the third note of the scale, you play the flat of it which is a semitone or half step lower. So 1-b3-5 gives you a minor chord. Remember that C is note 1, D is note 2, E is note 3, F is note 4, G is note 5, A is note 6 and B is note 7. So you play notes 1, b3 and 5 and you have a minor chord. Pretty simple.

The next chord you will learn is the diminished chord. To form a diminished chord, you use notes 1, b3 and b5 of the scale. So C-Eb-Gb is a C diminished chord. C is note 1, Eb is the flat 3rd, and Gb is the flat 5th. Eb is the flat third because it is a half step lower than the third note of the scale. Gb is the flat fifth because it is a half step lower than the 5th note of the scale. That’s all it is. So 1-b3-b5 gives you a diminished chord.

The next chord we will learn to form is the augmented chord. Play notes 1, 3 and sharp 5 (#5) of the scale. Sharp means to go a semitone higher while flat means to go a semitone lower. So Gb is the flat 5 and G# is the sharp 5 of the scale. Nothing hard about it. C-E-G# is a C augmented chord. C is note 1, E is note 3 and G# is the sharp fifth.

To recap quickly, C-E-G (1-3-5) is a major chord, C-Eb-G (1-b3-5) is a minor chord, C-Eb-Gb (1-b3-b5) is a diminished chord, and C-E-G# (1-3-#5) is an augmented chord. So we have these piano chords covered.

The next chord we will learn is the sus2 chord, also called a suspended second chord. All you play is note 1, note 2 and note 5. The formula is 1-2-5. C-D-G is a Csus2 chord (C suspended 2nd chord).

Next, we take a look at the suspended fourth (sus4 chord). Play notes 1, 4 and 5. 1-4-5. C-F-G is a Csus4 chord (C suspended fourth chord).

So far we’ve looked at six types of chords, namely, major (1-3-5), minor (1-b3-5), diminished (1-b3-b5), augmented (1-b3-b5), suspended second (1-2-5), and suspended fourth (1-4-5) chords.

The next chord you will learn how to play is called a dominant seventh chord (dom7). To form a dominant 7th chord, you play notes 1, 3, 5 and b7 of the major scale. 1–3-5-b7. C-E-G-Bb is a Cdom7 or C7 chord. So instead of playing the 7th note you play the flat 7th note. For the C major scale, instead of playing B, you play B flat.

The next chord you will learn how to form is the major seventh chord (maj7 chord), which consists of notes 1, 3, 5 and 7 of the major scale. 1-3-5-7. C-E-G-B is a Cmaj7 chord. For C dominant 7th, you play the b7, Bb and for C major 7th, you play the 7th note of the scale, B.

Let’s now take a look at the minor seventh chord. The formula for this chord is 1-b3-5-b7. It’s really a minor chord plus an added flat seventh note. So in the case of C minor seventh (cm7), the notes are C-Eb-G-Bb.

We will learn two more keyboard chords. They are both 6th chords.

We start with the major 6th. What note do you think we must play? You have to play the 6th note, right? The 6th note of the C major scale is A, so A must be included in our chord. A C major 6th chord (Cmaj6) is C-E-G-A. You play notes 1, 3, 5 and 6.

And lastly, the minor 6th (m6 or min6). I’m sure you guessed it; you play a minor chord and you add the 6th. C-Eb-G-A is a Cm6 chord. The formula for this chord is 1-b3-5-6.

The major sixth and minor sixth chords are used a lot in Jazz music. Pop songs don’t usually make use of these two chords. But it’s a good chord to know because it’s very easy to play.

You can do what we just did with these piano chords in any scale. All you need to know is your scale, and remember what numbers to play.

So let’s try it in the G major scale. This is the G major scale: G A B C D E F#. G is note 1, A is note 2, B is note 3, C is note 4, D is note 5, E is note 6 and F# is note 7. To form a major chord as we saw earlier, you play notes 1, 3 and 5. G-B-D is a G major chord. To form a minor chord, you play notes 1, b3 and 5. G-Bb-D is a G minor chord. To form a diminished chord, you play notes 1, b3 and b5. G-Bb-Db is a G diminished chord. To form a G augmented chord, you play notes 1, 3 and #5, G-B-D#. To form a G7 chord you play notes 1, 3, 5 and b7, G-B-D-F. To form a G major 7th chord, you play notes, 1, 3, 5 and 7, G-B-D-F#. To form a Gsus2, you play notes 1, 2 and 5, G-A-D. For Gsus4, it’s notes 1, 4 and 5, G-C-D. For Gm7, it’s notes 1, b3, 5 and b7, G-Bb-D-F. It’s pretty simple.

Let’s try one more scale, the F major scale. The notes of this scale are F G A Bb C D E. F is note 1, G is note 2, A is note 3, Bb is note 4, C is note 5, D is note 6 and E is note 7. Major: 1-3-5 (F-A-C). Minor: 1-b3-5 (F-Ab-C). Diminished: 1-b3-b-5 (F-Ab-Cb). Augmented: 1-3-#5 (F-A-C#). Dominant 7th: 1-3-5-b7 (F-A-C-Eb). Major 7th: 1-3-5-7 (F-A-C-E). Minor 7th: 1-b3-5-b7 (F-Ab-C-Eb). Sus2: 1-2-5 (F-G-C). Sus4: 1-4-5 (F-Bb-C). Major 6th: 1-3-5-6 (F-A-C-D). Minor 6th: (F-Ab-C-D).

Practice your piano chords in different major scales starting with the C major scale. C major, C-E-G. C minor, C-Eb-G. C dim, C-Eb-Gb. C aug, C-E-G#. C sus2, C-D-G. C sus4, C-F-G. C7, C-E-G-Bb. CM7, C-E-G-B. Cm7, C-Eb-G-Bb. C6, C-E-G-A. Cm6, C-Eb-G-A. I hope you understand this. It’s pretty simple when you think of your chords like this.
