Playing the Piano for the Rest of Us...: How to Play Chord Music on the Piano

by Victor Aramanda

"Playing the Piano for the rest of us" is a course created for people who want to play the piano without having to commit to years of study and practice before being able to play songs they really want to.

Finally a piano course for people who want to play with other musicians without having to learn to read sheet music, to enjoy themselves or be included in groups, like church groups or bands, or just friends and family.

Most of the piano instruction I have seen falls into two categories… it’s too hard, so you quit, or, it doesn’t teach enough foundational skills and knowledge so the only thing learned is how to play songs that the course taught.

I like the saying, “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach him to fish, feed him for a lifetime”. This course hopes to be part of the latter, for people who want to play and enjoy the piano or keyboard.

Many existing courses teach too much at once like classical piano finger-skills, music theory and how to read sheet music. Students often get lost and discouraged somewhere between reading sheet music and having too hard of a time getting their hands to work together, others teach a set of playing skills that allow the student to play a limited amount of songs or music, but no freedom to find and play what the student really wanted to in the first place.

Classical training is fantastic, but can often times be overkill for people who want to accompany others or want to play and / or sing using chord music. Ultimately the student gets rolled over from too much and too hard of a learning curve, like a wave that came crashing down on their hopes and dreams.

Some training methods don’t provide enough foundation to enable the student to continue growing themselves, at their own pace, as they desire after they’ve completed the course. This course hopes to open the door for people to play the piano and then release them to grow-on!

Learning to read chord music is the difference between a person having to “learn, read and interpret an extremely complicated map with a key of over 20 symbols”, compared to having to read a simple map of “start point, landmark, end point”.

Garage Band Theory – GBTool 08 Chord Progressions: excerpt from Garage Band Theory: Tools the Pros Use to Play by Ear (Garage Band Theory - Tools the Pro's Use to Play by Ear Book 9)

by Duke Sharp

Everything in this book came from Garage Band Theory and there's loads more useful stuff there.

When I first started trying to explain how people can play songs by ear, this is where I began.

I thought that if a player understands that the vast majority of the music we hear is based around about five patterns, which are called chord progressions, and then they learn those patterns they'd be off and running.

Not a bad idea, but what happened is that the student would not really know exactly what a chord is, which has to be explained in the context of a scale... and they wouldn't know what a scale is ... and so on. Turns out this is one of those times that a coherent explanation can't really start in the middle.

But the basic premise is absolutely true. There are only a few chord progressions that can be thought of as the foundation for nearly all the music you'll ever hear, and they're rather simple. And they're all here.

When you learn to recognize chord progressions ... musical patterns ... it becomes quite easy to anticipate the 'next' chord.

When you're doing that, you're playing 'by ear.'

There are plenty of examples and chord diagrams that will let you get right into playing all these tunes and a quiz at the end so you can measure your progress. (use a separate sheet of paper for your answers)

This is non Academic, practical, useful theory for living-room pickers and working musicians who want to be able to think coherently about music in order to ask questions and understand answers about the music they want to play.

The stuff in GBT is about understanding The Beatles and The Rolling Stones,  Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, The Grateful Dead and Vampire Weekend.

It's NOT about analyzing Bach Fugues... but you'll be able to if you want to.

It was written for the 99% of musicians who are NOT music majors by a incorrigible honky-tonk guitar player who plays by ear ... but understands the relevant vocabulary and what's sensible and useful for MOST players.

"Garage Band Theory is a must for any musician." Rodney Crowell

"Don't be put off by this giant book - Duke's got the secrets of the universe in here. Quite simply, this is the most comprehensive book on music theory I've ever seen."
Bill Payne (Little Feat)

"Something for every musician at any level. Especially helpful is the musical notation and tablature for a variety of instruments. This book inspires me to learn and practice more."
Sam Bush

"Garage Band Theory is a veritable encyclopedia of useful tools and tips.This book lifts the lid off the "black box" of music theory and let's the light shine in - and in a fun, practical way.
This is a book which should be left handily lying around the living room, bedside, studio, classroom, (restroom?) - ready to be dipped into at any time for reference purposes or just to improve or refresh one's fluency in the language of music.
A great resource for musicians young and old no matter what your training. For the price of a one-hour lesson, GBT offers a lifetime of learning."
Alasdair Fraser

"Garage Band Theory let me know how little I know... but in a good way.  It's a great book!" Sterling C Ball CEO, Ernie Ball Inc.

"This book is written in the people's key." Kostas

"Garage Band Theory offers you everything you need to know to understand, play and make your own music. Because he is both an accomplished musician and teacher, Sharp's Garage Band Theory is an excellent guide for beginners and more advanced players alike." Sam Barry, author, musician

No matter which instrument you want to play, the advice, inspiration and down-to-earth tips in this book will help you get to your goal.

Duke Sharp draws on a lifetime of experience playing, writing, recording and teaching music.

Garage Band Theory demystifies music theory and, in the process, shows how to apply basic music theory to the art of playing by ear and composition.

The Days of Guns, & Raz's

by Raz Cue

In the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and eighty-five, a little ol’ band called Guns N’ Roses formed in Raz Cue’s living room. And thus, Cue became the band’s first manager... to be fired. With absolutely no hard feelings, Mr. Cue remained a trusted member of G N’ R’s inner circle for the remainder of the decade, allowing him to witness the iconic band tour the world’s stages as they rose to the pinnacle of rock ‘n’ roll. When the Guns N’ Roses party quit being fun for him, Cue stepped away from the swelling ranks of backstage hangers-on so that he might fully enjoy the band’s incendiary performances from a fan-in-the-audience perspective.With good times and fun stories constantly swirling about in his mind’s eye, a few years back, Mr. Cue resolved to set the standard for which all future memoirs should be judged. Four hundred and twenty drafts later, the product of that quest emerged: The Days of Guns, and Raz’s. Far more than a Hollywood rock ‘n’ roll memoir, the book follows Cue’s drug-addled journey from feral child to moral-ish adult. His spinal injury during high school and lifetime of riding a wheelchair, while higher than the International Space Station, are thrown in to keep it all rolling along.Mr. Cue manages to wrap up the whole shebang neatly within the changing landscapes of 1970s through 90s America, all the while showcasing his lifelong love of music and cheap thrills. With an undying admiration for hungry up-and-coming artists, Cue remained involved in the Los Angeles music scene through the mid-90s implosion of the Sunset Strip, so he wedges in a bit of name-dropping from that period, too. If you’ve longed for a caustic, satirical, blue-collar rock bio that delivers a stinging bitch slap to our current insanity-level political correctness, this one’s for you!

In His Eyes: Stories from the heart of the streets

by Michael McMillan

This first book by Michael McMillan spans over 50 years of his life as told through the lyrics from his three solo albums, Cold and Roofless, Faith to Faith and Meet Me at the Cross. The lyrics and accompanying photographs graphically depict stories of poverty, homelessness, crime, vengeance, prison, addictions, love, relationships, infidelity and ultimately forgiveness, faith and a second chance. This emotional roller coaster of life will touch your heart and soul. The stories are real, the people are real and the second chance is very real. Michael was born and brought up in Glasgow. He has seen and experienced both the beautiful and ugly sides of life first hand, as a professional musician, police officer and an addiction counsellor. He rejected religion and found God.
'Michael's songs cover a wide range of issues and experiences which cannot fail to move people who share a common love and will surely encourage those who are themselves struggling. I pray that this book will be a blessing to many' Graeme Duffin, Wet Wet Wet
