The 4 Basic Piano Chords


Many popular songs thrive on just 4 basic chords. It doesn't matter if they were played with a guitar, a piano or even a violin, these four basic chords are fundamental when it comes to song-writing. The reason why we feel as if some songs are similar, is because they share the same chords, but different rhythm. The pattern in which these chords are played should be creative and original, otherwise, many songs would deem as plagiarism. Without further ado, here are the 4 basic chords you should learn as a beginner!


1. C Major Chord

2. G Major Chord

3. A Minor Chord

4. F Major Chord



Songs you can start playing with these 4 chords :
