In this lesson you’ll learn how to play every variation of a chord of Ebmaj7 on piano, including its root position, first inversion and second inversion.
The notes required for an Ebmaj7 piano chord are as follows:
It can be a little tricky playing all four notes of a Ebmaj7 piano chord in your right hand. To make life easier, play the Eb with your left hand thumb. Then use your right hand to play a triad chord using the remaining notes of G, Bb and D.
Once you’re comfortable, try playing two octave Eb notes in your left hand. You can also play a Bb note in between them both to make the chord sound even more full and rich.
A First Inversion chord of Ebmaj7 uses the exact same notes as the Root Position, but played in a different order. First of all, play two octave G notes in your left hand. Your right hand can then make up the remaining notes - Bb, D and Eb.
