How do you play piano chords?

I have a small amount of musical ability.


Answer by  JohnHolmes (2660)

Every cord has its own set of single notes that make them up. You can easily find out what these are online or in almost any music book. Once you learn them you will be able to play any song beautifully.

You can get a chord chart online, but if you learn the scales, chords become easy to figure out. Get a chord chart and look at it.

Standard chords (called triads) are played by stacking 3rds. Essentially it means you play one white note, skip one, play one, skip one more and play a third one. This forms a triad chord.

To play chords on a piano you will need to have your fingers relaxed and loose to be able to play multiple keys at a time. to start you will want to try out a C major chord which is extremely basic. Practice playing that chord to get your fingers used to playing piano chords.
