ALL ABOUT THE COMPLETE KEYBOARD CHORD POSTER

The Complete Keyboard Chord Poster shows the fingering positions of every keyboard chord, including the inversions. Players at all levels, from beginner to advanced, can take advantage of this chart’s unique features.

  • Beginners—The chart shows chord diagrams for all the simple, basic chords in all major and minor keys. The poster also includes major scales for each key (left and right margins).

  • Intermediate-level players—As you move from left to right across the poster, chords become progressively more “advanced.” This makes it easy for you to learn new, unusual chords and chord inversions at your own pace, without losing track of your progress. Color bands make it easy to identify each key, and to quickly transpose the chords of a song from any key to any other key.  

  • Advanced players—Even the most expert players usually don’t have all chords in all keys memorized. The right side of the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster shows the fingering positions of extended jazz chords such as 11ths and 13ths, organized so that you can find any chord fingering position in any key at a glance.

"... [I find] your keyboard poster really useful. I use it to take shortcuts to find and learn the notes to complicated chords. This is a real treasure ... I had no idea that some of these chords were even possible, but to see the structure of them laid out so clear, that's what I find so good about it."—Sherry Yates, Saskatoon, SK

"I didn't understand much about inversions till I started using the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster."—Peter Minish, Tulsa, OK

COLOR BANDS IDENTIFY THE KEYS

  • All chords and chord progressions in the same key appear in the same horizontal colour band on the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster. For example, all chords in the key of F are located in the orange band; all chords in the key of A-flat are located in the green band.  

  • Apart from the utility of clear key-identification, the rainbow-like arrangement of the colour bands makes for a pleasing visual effect.

 

30 BASIC CHORD TYPES, PLUS NUMEROUS “ALTERED CHORD TYPES

  • The Complete Keyboard Chord Poster shows the root position, 1st inversion, 2nd inversion, and 3rd inversion for each of 30 basic chord types in each key. The chords are arranged in logical order across the poster. The simplest chords are on the left side. The jazziest (extended) chords are on the right side.

  • Here’s a list of the 30 basic chord types:

Major
Minor
Diminished
Augmented
Suspended 2nd
Suspended 4th
Flat 5th
6th
Minor 6th
Dominant 7th
Minor 7th
Diminished 7th
Major 7th
Minor, Major 7th
7/6
9th
Minor 9th
Flat 9th
Minor, Flat 9th
Augmented 9th
9/6
Minor 9/6
11th
Minor 11th
Augmented 11th
Minor, Augmented 11th
13th
Minor 13th
13th, Augmented 11th
Minor 13th, Augmented 11th
  • In addition, the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster shows how you can alter most 7th, 9th, 11th, and 13th chords, or any of their inversions, without doubling any notes, to create a broad spectrum of variants for these chords. A column labelled “ALT” just to the right of each “alterable” chord type shows you which notes you may substitute in these chords to create “altered” variant chords without doubling any notes in either the original chord or its altered variants.

  • That means, using nothing but the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster, you can play about 8,800 completely unique chords on any keyboard.

  • For example, you may substitute one or more of the following notes to create these unique and interesting altered chords:

-  Major 2nd or perfect 4th in place of a major 3rd, to create
    suspended 2nd or 4th alterations of 7th or 9th chords.
  
-  Diminished or augmented 5th in place of a perfect 5th, to
   create diminished or augmented alterations of 7th, 9th, 11th,
   or 13th chords.
  
-  Major seventh in place of a dominant 7th to create major 7th
   alterations of 9th, 11th, and 13th chords.
  
-  Flat 9th or augmented 9th in place of a 9th, to create flatted
   or augmented 9th alterations of 11th and 13th chords.

  • You can use more than one alteration in a single chord. That means you can play dozens of completely unique variants of a single basic chord (e.g., C7 or F9, or any of their inversions) without doubling any notes in any of the altered chords.

  • And, you can do it without knowing how to read a note of music, yet still be able to identify every chord by its correct name, so that you can return to it later, or incorporate it in a lead sheet for a song, etc.

"Intervals used to stump me. Thanks to your [Complete Keyboard Chord] chart, I understand how they pertain to the structure of chords ... Altered chords intrigue me, so I'm working my way through them ... This poster is head and shoulders above any other music reference I've come across."—Chris W. Lawson, Los Angeles, CA

MAJOR AND MINOR CHORD PROGRESSIONS

  • On the left side of the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster is a special section called Principal Chords/Relative Minor. This section shows you the 6 fundamental chord types that make up the basic major and minor chord progressions in each key.

  • For example, in the key of C, these 6 chords (each of which can be played in root position or as an inversion) are:

C Major
 
F Major
 
G7
 
A Minor
 
D Minor
 
E7

(Major Tonic, or I-chord)
 
(Major Subdominant, or IV-chord)
 
(Dominant Seventh, or V7-chord)
  
(Minor Tonic, or VIm-chord)
  
(Minor Subdominant, or IIm-chord)
 
(Dominant Seventh, or III7-chord)

  • This section is especially useful when writing songs and working out chord progressions. Also, you can use it to transpose the chords of a song from one key to another key at a glance (see below).

  • These are the chords that make up the harmonic scales on the Chord Progression Chart.

  • For complete information on chord progressions and how they work, consult How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, available at:

CHORD TRANSPOSING

Suppose the chords of a given song are in the key of D. The chords might be, for example:

D, Bm, F#7, Dm7, and A7

  • How can you quickly find the equivalent chords in a different key, for example, the key of G? And how do you finger the chords in the new key?

  • Here's how, using the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster. The red horizontal bar contains all the chords for the key of D. The grey horizontal bar contains all the chords for the key of G. So, wherever any chord appears in the red bar, just play whichever chord appears in the same column in the grey bar.

  • Here's the original chord sequence in the key of D, followed by transposed chords in the key of G:

Chords in Original Key (Key of D, red bar):

D, Bm, F#7, Dm7, A7

Chords in Transposed Key (Key of G, grey bar):

G, Em, B7, Gm7, D7

  • You don't have to do any mental calculations to transpose the chords from one key to another. Just look at the colour bar corresponding to the key you want to transpose to. Then play whichever chords appear in the same columns as the chords in the colour bar of your original key. That’s all there is to it.

"I'm going through my fake books and transposing the chords to keys I can sing with. I'm usually pretty lazy about musical chores like this, but the [Complete Keyboard Chord] chart makes it so easy!"—Clair Wang, Peterborough, ON

LEARN NEW CHORDS WHETHER YOU READ MUSIC OR NOT

  • The Complete Keyboard Chord Poster shows both the fingering diagrams and the musical notes that make up each chord and each inversion. So, whether you read music or not, you can learn to play any chord.

"Never seen anything like it. I used to look up chords at web sites, but that was always a pain. So this chart is practical. It looks great too, by the way."—B. Kucheran, Madison, WI

~ • ~ • ~ • ~

 

MAJOR SCALES IN THE LEFT AND RIGHT MARGINS

  • The left and right margins of the chart incorporate diagrams of all 12 major diatonic scales. Each scale diagram shows the name of each note within the scale.

  • However, the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster is not nearly as useful for scales as the Guitar & Keyboard Scales Poster.

~ • ~ • ~ • ~

"I've paid a lot of money for chord books, and none of them have half the stuff that this chart has."—Rick G. Fenske, Winnipeg, MB

TWINS: THE COMPLETE KEYBOARD CHORD POSTER AND THE COMPLETE GUITAR CHORD POSTER

  • Although you play keyboard, you may be interested in learning guitar chords and scales. The Complete Guitar Chord Poster is the twin of the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster.

  • The two charts match each other in content, size, colour, and layout. The same information is located in the same places on each chart. So, if you play one instrument, you can learn to play the same chords on the other, using the twin chart for the other instrument.

HOW MUSIC REALLY WORKS!

If you don’t yet have a copy of How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, you can read the first 6 full chapters for free at this website:

For Performers, Students, and Instructors:

  • Most aspiring professional musicians and instructors can sing or play an instrument with considerable proficiency. But they don’t understand much about how music itself really works.

  • If you want to get ahead as a musician and/or instructor, then singing or playing an instrument expertly is not enough.

  • If you aim to make a living (or at least part of your living) in music as a performer and/or instructor, you’ll do a lot better if you understand the important aspects of how music works. For example:

-  What separates a brilliant melody from an ordinary one?
-  How do great chord progressions work?
-  What makes a lyric emotionally powerful?
-  How is it possible to create a unique, original, signature
      sound and style
?

  • All of these topics, and a lot more, are extensively and clearly covered in How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, the world’s single most useful and authoritative book for performers, songwriters, and music students.

  • How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, is equally useful whether you read music or play by ear (like most performers and songwriters). You don’t need to know how to read music. In fact, the book has no music notation—instead, everything you need to know about creating emotionally powerful music AND lyrics is spelled out in clear English, with hundreds of illustrations and examples.

  • If you don’t already have it, you can purchase How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, in print or PDF format, from this order page (phone, online ordering, fax, or mail):

For Songwriters:

What's the status quo in original songwriting everywhere?

Lame melodies. Run-of-the-mill lyrics. Boring chord progressions.

How come?

  • The sad truth is, 99.9% of songwriters fail to rise above mediocrity. Frankly, they’re simply clueless about effective songwriting technique. They have no knowledge of the techniques required to write brilliant melodies, effective chord progressions, and powerful lyrics.

  • If you write songs as a solo artist or member of a band, you’re one in a pack of millions. Anybody can write mediocre songs—which is exactly why the world’s awash in second-rate, forgettable songs.

  • Writing brilliant songs takes real know-how—which is what you need if you expect to break away from the pack and get noticed.

  • With How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, you can acquire that know-how. You can quickly start learning effective technique: how to create brilliant tunes, how to construct brilliant chord progressions, how to write brilliant lyrics.
