Technique for playing chords Saturday, August 06, 2011 10:41 PM Many of you have asked me to put up some tutorials for playing the piano. Like I said, I'm no expert. If you listen to my first song "papa kehte hain" and the most recent one, "main agar kahoon", you'd know what difference practice can make. Same keyboard, same player, no offical keyboard lessons - but 1.5 years of time between both the songs, which is long enough for practice.

To play a song,

1. You need the notes - you have them here 2. You should hit the notes with the right tempo - keep practicing 3. Strike the chords - hardest part, if you really choose to play chords

This post addresses task #3 above.

Again, there are two ways to play chords, if you consider an electronic keyboard:

1. Hitting the chord keys all at once and turning the "accompaniment" of the keyboard to ON, 2. Playing the keys using rhythmic patterns.

#1 is the simpler of the two. Again, co-ordinating the left and right hands requires practice. Rhythmic patterns are harder to play. When I get the chords (left hand) right, I miss out on the notes (right hand) and vice-versa. So, I choose a keyboard style and play the chords using method #1 - this gives the effect of playing a pattern, without the actual finger movement.

After researching on the Internet, I picked up a technique using which chords can be played at ease, with minimal effort. Presenting it below, with pictures..

Lets say you want to play C-major followed by A-major in succession..

C-major:

A-major:

C & A one after the other:

Notice the left most red dot and the right most green dot. That's the entire span of keys your fingers should move across to play both the chords.

Instead, if you confine yourself to just one octave like this:

C-major:

A-major:

C & A:

Now look, your fingers just need to dance on 7 keys. Do you see the reduction in effort? That's the way I play!

Ideally, when you play a chord, say C-major; you should start with the root note that is C. Hit the 4th key from there which is E, and the 7th key from root, which happens to be G. C-E-G is the sequence. But, as per the technique shown above, you play: G-C-E. There is a difference in sound between the two, because in the 1st case an upper scale G is used, while in the 2nd, the lower G is played. Minor difference, but for time-pass players like most of us, that's pretty much acceptable.

So, dear piano-enthusiasts, try this out.. I'm sure you'll be more comfortable with chords henceforth.

Dear readers... Saturday, August 06, 2011 10:27 PM Post edited on 13th May '10:

Dear visitors, After a two year break I joined work. Happy about that, but sad to say that its been like 6 months since I played something on the keyboard. The only time I ever touch it is when I dust it :) So people, I really can't honor your song requests at this time. Thank you for visiting! Hope my blog helped you. ~Manjusha

Earlier post:

My dear loyal visitors,

I appreciate your taking the time to navigate my blog and leave a word of appreciation on it. Thanks you, thank you, thank you so much! One thing that's common among most comments is request for more songs. Well, when I started this blog, I had all the time in this world. But today, as I type this post, there are hazaar other things I'm pre-occupied with and sadly, playing the piano has taken a back seat. :( One new song a month is all I can learn. I already have a list of songs that I really really want to learn 1. tere liye from Veer Zaara 2. khuda jaane from Bachna Ae Haseeno 3. saanson ko saansein from Hum Tum 4. tanha tanha from Rangeela 5. guzarish from Ghajini 6. aaona from Kyun Ho Gaya na 7. om jai jagdish - aarti song 8. kondalalo nelakonna - Annamayya keerthana 9. main agar kahoon from Om Shanti Om 10. nenani neevani from Telugu movie Kotta Bangaru Lokam 11. jadoo hai nasha hai from Jism This list is in no particular order. Also, many of you have asked for notations for new songs. Well, my timeline in India stopped in Sept '07. That's when I moved to the US of A. I don't keep myself updated with what's new in bollywood. So, henceforth, I'll add a link: "Request a Song" wherein you ask-I answer :) This would be once I'm done with the above list of songs.

Once again, thank you all for those nice words and encouragement! Piya bole Monday, April 27, 2009 11:26 AM Prelude:

Ninnu kori varnam Friday, February 27, 2009 5:16 PM It's a Telugu song for the first time. Something I wanted to try, ever since I started playing the keyboard. A time-less number from the 80's movie Gharshana (Agni Nakshatram in Tamil). The non-Telugu/Tamil speaking visitors, you've got to watch the YouTube video at the bottom of the page. I'm sure you'll love it!

Finding the notes itself was a Herculean task. I can't imagine playing this with chords. For it to sound good, I chose the Saturday Night rhythm on Yamaha Keyboard.

Finding the chords of a song Saturday, August 06, 2011 10:43 PM When I started playing the piano, I had absolutely no clue about chords. Infact, I used to wonder how do people play using both their hands, when I struggle to play with just one. One fine morning, I felt it's about time I learn chords. I was so enthusiastic that I even placed holds on a couple of books in the library that teach you how to play chords in less than a week! Read exhaustively on chords, rhythmic patterns and stuff, only to realise its too much for me. Since I'm just a "bathroom singer" kind of keyboard player :), I thought I'll play chords as and how I like. I sat down for about two days, read some material, the basics I should say and devised a chord-determination algorithm. Surprisingly, it yields good results most of the time. And that's why I decided to share it with my visitors. Here you go! Step 1: Identify the notes of the song corresponding to the tune. The song will include only those chords which are combinations of these notes. Step 2: Analyse the song, line-by-line. Divide each line of the song into logical segments, call each segment a measure. There's more to a measure of a song that what is mentioned here. For simplicity, I'm calling a segment a measure. A measure can typically include 3-6 notes of the tune. Now the question is, where do you set the break points inorder to get measures of a line of song?

Here's the simple rule of thumb: Follow your intuition! How I look at it is, I set the breakpoint at the transition of the song from one scale to another. Now, "scale" is yet another technical term like "measure". Pls note that all these terms are used in a very general sense in my context.

Lets take an example. "Yeh mera dil" from Don. Yeh mera dil pyaar ka deewana ------------ -------- ------Deewana deewana pyaar ka parvana ------- ------- -------- ------Aata hai mujhko pyaar mein jaljaana --------------- ---------- -------.... Listen to the song keeping an eye on the segmentation above. Sounds right? I play the first line ("Yeh mera dil pyaar ka deewana") using only three chords. The original song might include many more, but the tune can be contained in three chords. I guess I'm sure of that. Step 3: Having identified the measures, the next task is to map each measure to a chord. The rule for this is, the chord that correctly maps to the measure should include as many notes of the measure as possible. For instance, look at this:

Yeh mera dil D ED EC

The chords C and Aminor include both the notes E & C. But how ironical, I play Dminor chord for this measure. An exception in the very beginning! Well, its like this. Generally, the note with which the song begins determines the "scale" of the song. Most of the chords would be centered around this note. Try playing this measure with C, Aminor and Dminor. You'll see the difference yourself. Here's what I do. I have this simple chords table which I drafted out.

Step 3.1: Given a measure, using the table above, I identify all possible chords (only major, minor and flat) that include the notes of the measure. I then set the "accompaniment" of my keyboard to ON, and play the notes of the measure with each chord. The chord that perfectly carries the tune of the measure is the one I go with. Somewhat a brute force approach, but for a layman like me, it

sure works. Step 3.2: Once you get a rough idea of the chords for a line (like "yeh mera dil pyaar ka deewana"), play them in sequence without playing the notes. If you can identify the tune by playing just the chords, your chords are right! Otherwise, use your judgement and tweak the chord combination by reconsidering those chords that you've discarded in step 3.1 above.

Repeat steps 3.1 and 3.2 for each line of the song.

Step 4: That's the end of the algorithm! Powered by intuition, Driven by sharp ears (Quotation courtesy: Infosys :D)

Mapping between western notation and carnatic Saturday, August 06, 2011 10:44 PM There have been requests for adding carnatic notation for songs on this blog. I'm pressed for time now, so I'm just presenting the mapping between western notes and carnatic swaras. Check back in a month or two, and you'd sure find the carnatic notations for each song that I upload.

The carnatic swaras are as follows: * s - Shadjamam

* r1 - Sudhdha Rishabam * * * * * * * * * * r2 - Chatusruthi Rishabam r3 - Shatsruthi Rishabam g1 - Sudhdha Gaandhaaram g2 - Saadhaarana Gaandhaaram g3 - Anthara Gaandhaaram m1 - Sudhdha Madhyamam m2 - Prathi Madhyamam p - Panchamam d1 - Sudhdha Dhaivatham d2 - Chatusruthi Dhaivatham

* * * *

d3 - Shatsruthi Dhaivatham n1 - Sudhdha Nishaadham n2 - Kaisika Nishaadham n3 - Kaakali Nishaadham

And here's the mapping:

Ajab si Friday, October 10, 2008 3:49 PM Playing this beautiful song involves too many black keys, which is difficult for me :). For my convenience, I transpose the keys by a factor of 3 each time I play. Pls note that the song actually starts with the note G#, even though my notation starts with F (left shifted by 3).
