EZ Piano Method

EZ Lesson 31
The Sharp Sign and New Chord, D7


When a Sharp sign is placed in front of a note, it means that we must play the key immediately to it's right.
I will explain this more fully, but first, here is what the sharp sign looks like.
As an example, let's look at the note 'F sharp' to the left of Middle C.

This is the black key, in between F and G in the blue section of your
keyboard template

When F sharp is written in music notation, it looks like this:
The first use of the note, F sharp, in these lessons, will be in the chord, 'D7'

Here is the D7 chord in music notation.
D7 chord
This chord is played using finger numbers, 5, 2, and 1, of the left hand, as shown in the video below.

The notes, Middle C, and D, are shown side by side, because if they were on top of each other, they would overlap, and be confusing to read.
Just the same as in the previous chords, all three notes are played together, at the same time.
