Blues Piano Chords: An Introduction
Play a couple of blues piano chords on those keys with a blues lick or two and you’ve got the attention of your listener. There’s something about the sound of those blues chord voicings that just grabs the ear. Combine them with a few blues scale licks and, wow, they just want to hear more.
However, there is another benefit to sitting at the piano and playing the blues at a nice, slow tempo that the player gets to enjoy. Sure, he or she can appreciate what it all sounds like as anyone else would but we’re talking about the feeling one gets when able to confidently play a simple blues chorus over and over again. It can be rather “therapeutic” to the player. A sense of relaxation takes over. If you’re ever stressed, go to that piano or keyboard of yours and have some fun with playing some blues and watch – rather, feel – what happens. The more you play the blues, the more you want to.
