Embellishing a basic chord to get a harmonious bass part
« on: July 21, 2019, 10:33:11 PM »
If you know your left hand chord but are playing a piano and not a keyboard, how do you get a 'basic' chord to sound anything like a piano being played?  If you just hold the chord down you get the harmony, but no movement.  Holding your chord down on a keyboard will give you a plethora of sound, all created from the STYLE you are using.  But if you do that on a piano, the piano will sound 'dead'.

See how the demonstrator gets a harmonious 'moving' sound with chords played on a piano.
