In this lesson you’ll learn how to play every variation of a chord of Dbmaj7 on piano, including its root position, first inversion and second inversion.
The notes required for a Dbmaj7 piano chord are as follows:
It can be a little tricky playing all four notes of an Dbmaj7 piano chord in your right hand. To make life easier, play the Db with your left hand thumb. Then use your right hand to play a triad chord using the remaining notes of F, Ab and C.
Once you’re comfortable, try playing two octave Db notes in your left hand. You can also play a Ab note in between them both to make the chord sound even more full and rich.
A First Inversion chord of Dbmaj7 uses the exact same notes as the Root Position, but played in a different order. Play two octave F notes in your left hand. Your right hand can then make up the other notes - Ab, C and Db.
