The Three Most Popular Chord Progressions (Full Piano Lesson)

How To Use Inversions To Play Popular Songs

Lisa Witt - Apr 23, 2019

Welcome to your pop chord boot camp! This 17-minute lesson takes the most popular chord progression of all time and helps you to gain confidence by playing it in different ways! You will explore reordering the chords as well as using inversions to help you move smoothly (or not so smoothly) between the chords.


New Ways To Play Chords


So many of my students come to me asking for fresh new ways to play their chords and progression to make them more interesting and help them get out of a rut. This boot camp does just that by presenting you with different inversion and chord combinations as well as different ways to play them!


A Triple Win


This lesson is a win-win-win. How often can you say that?! You are working on a chord progression that shows up in thousands of songs, you are developing keyboard familiarity and dexterity and training your ear to connect to the ways inversions change the way we hear the chords we play.


A Full Lesson With Time To Practice


This lesson is presented in a boot camp style. This means that I want you to play along WITH me as you watch. I’ll talk you through all the chord changes and walk you through each change so you know what is happening and why it sounds the way it does. Work this video into your weekly practice routine and repeat it often until you can play along with me with a smile.


Happy Practicing!
