An interesting approach to HARMONY - The Floating Fifth Chord

In this Piano accompaniment exercise, we use the fifth chord played with a strong rhythmic foundation and then improvise a floating left-hand technique to create emotional harmony with minimal movement. The lesson is developed for the "Solo Pianist”. You will learn how to play a two-part melody along with the left-hand accompaniment. The notation can be download at our Patreon page.

► Download Notation (PDF) for the piece of music we are working on in this lesson:

2:22 Start with the 5th chord with an off-beat 1/8th note rhythm

6:32 Change the bottom note (Chord quality changes)

15:29 Change the top note (Chord Movement) 17:26 Slow version of the composition
