In this lesson you’ll learn how to play every variation of a chord of Bbmaj7 on piano, including its root position, first inversion and second inversion.
The notes required for a Bbmaj7 piano chord are as follows:
It can be a little tricky playing all four notes of a Bbmaj7 piano chord in your right hand. To make life easier, play the Bb with your left hand thumb. Then use your right hand to play a triad chord using the remaining notes of D, F and A.
Once you’re comfortable, try playing two Bb notes in your left hand, one octave apart. You can also play an F note in between them both to make the chord sound even more full and rich.
A First Inversion chord of Bbmaj7 uses the exact same notes as the Root Position, just played in a different order. First of all, play two octave D notes in your left hand. Your right hand can then make up the remaining notes - F, A and Bb.
