108 Piano Chords

FREE PDF eBook: A Visual Catalog of 108+ Piano Chords – PDF download

Greetings from Kent!

Today, I’ve just published a FREE PDF PIANO CHORD BOOK that I recently put together, as an optional reference catalog for myChords 108 series of video-based tutorials.


YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT RIGHT HERE (from this website):

Chords108′ Reference eBook – A Free Piano PDF Chord Catalog from ‘Piano With Kent.’


IMPORTANT:

Although this book can be useful by itself, as a handy reference for checking your piano chords, that’s not really my intended use for it. Why is that? Well, the true, intended purpose of my Chords 108 series, including this new, optional course supplement, is to help teach piano students how to ‘permanently learn’ all 108(+) of these chords, as they appear on the piano keyboard, without any external reference.

Therefore, this catalog should be used, ideally, only to check your understanding of this ‘non-rote’ chord memorization system. That way, you will quickly learn how to call up the notes to any standard chord on the piano, without needing ANY kind of reference!

MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Chords are listed alphabetically. Each chord is spelled out by using a simple image (consisting of dots on a keyboard, indicating which keys/notes make up the chord in question).

 


In a nutshell, all the standard three and four-note chords are illustrated!

 


HERE’S A LIST OF ALL THE CHORD TYPES ILLUSTRATED IN THIS BOOK:

Major triads (all)

Minor triads (all)

Major 7th chords (all)

Minor 7th chords (all)

Dominant 7th chords (all)

Diminished triads (all)

Diminished 7th chords (all)

Half-diminished 7th chords (‘Minor-7 flat-5’) (all)

Augmented triads (all)

//////////////////////////

Fear not!

When you see the sheer number of chords in this collection, don’t be overwhelmed, because we’re not learning these by rote! That’s right, I’ll say it again: There will be ABSOLUTELY NO NEED to memorize each chord by rote.

Instead, you will master a simple, pattern-based technique for calling up the notes for any standard chord, immediately, in your own mind — meaning, no outside references will be necessary!

Enjoy!

  1. The link doesn’t work 🙁

    Is there a way to download the book or buy it I would like to have a paper copy if possible.

    You should consider selling your material on amazon. not sure how all that woks but I do believe there are others like me who want to learn how to play but are looking for a shortcut because were too lazy to learn how to read traditional music.. lol

    1. Hi Michael, I’m sorry about this bad link! Sometimes I make a change to the website, and I inadvertently break a link somewhere, which is what happened here.
      I will fix that, thanks so much for the heads up! RE: BOOK DOWNLOAD, here is a link to that PDF Chord Catalog. And thanks very much for your suggestion of selling my stuff on Amazon. I have researched that option pretty thoroughly, and I decided against it, for several reasons that are specific to my needs.
