Learn Blues Piano

Blues Piano

Learning to play blues on piano has been some musicians' dream.

It is not really difficult to learn to play the piano. Almost every individual loves music. Some like rock music, pop, jazz, alternative, rhythm and blues, and many others. Whatever style of music you love, you can play it on the piano. For you to learn to play different song styles on the piano,  our suggestion is that you try Blues Piano for a start. It has easy to remember patterns and you can do lots of things freely with it.)

What exactly is blues piano? It is a music style and once you learn to play it on the piano you will have fewer troubles in learning to play other music styles. Keep on reading and by the end of this article, you will know a great deal about blues music and playing it on the piano.

To start with, you must know 12-bar blues. This is a very common progression if you want to do blues piano playing. To play this particular blues form, most pianists make use of seventh chords. A song is uslly broken into 3 sets. Each of the set consists of 4 bars. Start by playing the song on the C key. We shall use this key to illustrate theI7 (C7) in the C key. Then the IV7 tone (F7) and the V7 tone (G7).

The initial set is played as I7-I7-I7-I7 (C7-C7-C7-C7). The next set is played as IV7-IV7-I7-I7 (F7-F7-C7-C7). The final set is V-IV-I-I (G7-G7-C7-C7). Use your right hand when playing these three sets on the piano. To come up with a sound that sounds just like blues piano, try to master playing 7th chords.

For your left hand, follow the 8 note pattern in crochet (quarter notes) form. The pattern is like this: | I-III-V-VI- | VIIb-VI-V-III |. Right hand meantime plays the C Chord with the left hand notes will be played as | C-E-G-A- | Bb-A-G-E |. While for the chord F, you will be playing | F-A-C-D- | Eb-D-C-A |. Remember to play the F chord with the right hand. For the chord G, you will be playing | G-B-D-E- | F-E-D-B |. Again remember to play the G chord with the right hand.

Try to examine the chords and notes played both by the left and right hand. If you already know the different piano chords and notes, learning blues piano can be very easy. Before anything else, you will have to master 12-bar blues in the key C. Once you have mastered it, you can try playing it using other keys.

If you want to establish a good foundation in playing the piano easily especially "by ear", you must learn to play the blues first. Many successful pianists started out by playing blues and then they slowly (sometimes quickly) made their way into playing the music style that they love. Once you develop a strong musical foundation(especially the ability to feel music - also called musicality), the new lessons will be so much easier. Learning the different music styles is challenging but if you can play them with elegance and grace, your audience will love and praise your performance.

Find a good teacher that can teach you all the things you need to know about blues piano. If you can't find a piano teacher, you can use other methods like using DVD or CD programs, online piano lessons, and a piano guide book' or write to us via the form below. The learning process will be solely determined by you. If you are serious with playing piano and if you are determined to master your lessons, you will soon learn to play blues piano. (You may just want to get a competent teacher to check if you have acquired the musicality. Best is just to write to us and then we video skype to see if you have "got it").

You see, it may takes some time before you can play really good. It might even take years of learning and constant practice (but I doubt it would take that long with the guidance of a competent teacher). By exerting enough effort, time, and money  (and under the tutelage of a competent teacher), you can be a very good pianist.. I guarantee it (T&C apply).
