Man, NOW it starts to get FUN!
Chapter 2 of the Piano For All piano lessons method focuses on Blues and Rock and Roll. This chapter/lesson was relatively short, but quite deep in terms of material. Before one is done with this online piano lesson, you will have learned no less than 5 different, standard blues and rock rhythms.
As with the first lesson, the emphasis here is on getting you PLAYING piano right away. The music theory is kept to a minimum so that you are not bored or bogged down with learning, when you could be PLAYING! And I mean “play” in every sense of the word, this is a fun lesson! A few of the songs you will be able to play and imitate after working on the exercises contained: Great Balls of Fire, Blueberry Hill, Get Back, Honkey Tonk Woman, Jailhouse Rock, and many many more. This really is the backbone you need to learn how to play blues and rock piano. You are going to want to pull out your boombox and play along with these hits right at your keyboard . . .
While I do have some experience in playing blues and rock piano, I still picked up a few tidbits by reading the lesson and watching the videos. Frankly, when I was teaching myself how to play blues piano twenty years ago it would have been nice to have had access to such a simple, easy to use, easy to learn method.
I’m going to keep working my way through the lessons, but CLICK HERE to learn more about Piano For All and how it can help you to learn piano online.
