How To Play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on Piano and Keyboard – The Chords

Here’s the video.

The chords for this song are C major, F major and G major. I used major chords only to keep it simple. The notes of the C major chord are C, E and G. The notes of F major are F, A and C. The notes of G major are G, B and D. I have inverted the F and G major chords and this makes it easy for you to play. Because of these inversions you do not have to move your hand too much when changing chords. C major is played C-E-G. F major is played C-F-A and G major is played D-G-B.

Watch the video above and play these chords with your left hand.
