Early in this blog, I posted about how a lot of songs use the same three chords, with a video from a comedian playing the chords from Pachelbel’s Canon in D and singing a huge number of songs along with it.
Here’s another video, with even more songs. It’s pretty amazing!
These explain, tongue-in-the-cheek, how to write a block-busting pop song and become rich and famous. Just use four chords!
It’s a lot of fun to play around with chords on the piano and see what songs you can sing along with it, or make up as you go along. The more you work with it, the more you practice, the more you will build your skills as a musician. Have fun learning with your piano!
