This should be a quick addition to your piano “bag of tricks.” This riff is easy to add to your repertoire and sounds good with the right chords. In the video, I demonstrate the fingering pattern, how to play it in different keys, and how to play it with several variations.
I play this pattern frequently, so I thought I’d share it with you! If you’re interested in how to develop your own melodic playing, be sure to check out my full-length piano video course, Fluent Piano.
P.S. I’m also excited to debut a new setup for these piano tutorials. I’m just using a different spot in my studio, but aside from better lighting, it will have a couple advantages. One, I like that there’s no keyboard in between us, so it feels more personal. Two, this is where I keep my keyboard when I’m not doing a video in the old location. So, less setup hassle for me will hopefully mean you’ll have more of these videos coming your way!
