Piano Amore presents...
Dave's Personal Homespun Series Piano playing concepts you'll cherish for a lifetime! Hello! Dave here. Are you looking for an easy way to "get your feet wet" with playing
cocktail piano? Are you able to play some 7th chords? Would you like a nice foundation upon
which to build more lush sounding 9th, 11th, and 13th chords? Or do you have some playing
experience and realize the value in getting back to basics? If so, you want this.
Complete Easy Formula Revealed In Less Than 15 Minutes
Here is what I had in mind in this edition of Sneak Peeks... I wanted to provide a simple concept... a "minimalist's way" of approaching those 7th chords
in a way that automatically prepares you for more when you want those more rich & spicy sounds.
If I could simply get the point across to you within a short amount of time, have you go to your
piano or keyboard and start applying it right away, then the benefits could start being
enjoyed right away. Sprinkled throughout the presentation are some additional
flavorful chord voicings that you'll want to incorporate into your own playing as well.
So Simple It Escapes Many
I really wanted to get across this idea of simplicity. You see, it's quite normal to
want to learn all the "fancy" chords, etc., but let's face it: when it comes to
making music, it's more about balance. So, in this brief yet important
session, you are served with a key that will open your first doors
to sounding "pro" while playing those favorite standards of
yours as well as tossed a few extra appetizers on the side
for your own personal contemplation and addition
to that piano playing "toolbox" of yours.
