The notes required for a Dmaj7 piano chord are as follows:

  • D
  • F#
  • A

It can be a little tricky playing all four notes of a Dmaj7 piano chord in your right hand. To make life easier, play the D with your left hand thumb. Then use your right hand to play a triad chord using the remaining notes of F#, A and C#.

Once you’re comfortable, try playing two octave D notes in your left hand. You can also play a A note in between them both to make the chord sound even more full and rich.
