Here’s an interactive eBook that I put together as a reference for my Piano Chords 108 series.
This book can serve as a stand-alone reference for checking your piano chords.
The sole purpose of my Piano Chords 108 series is to teach piano students how to memorize all 108 of these chords as they appear on the piano keyboard.
Therefore, this catalog should be used, ideally, only to check your understanding of the memorization system taught here.
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.

Instead, students are mastering a simple technique for calling up the notes of any standard chord immediately in one’s mind -and requiring no outside references!
