In this lesson you’ll learn how to play every variation of a chord of Eb major on piano, including its root position, first inversion and second inversion.
The notes required for an Eb major piano chord are as follows:
Start by playing two Eb notes in your left hand, one octave apart. Once you’re comfortable, play a Bb note in the middle with your left hand second finger.
Then use your right hand to make up the rest of the chord. Play a G note with your thumb, and a Bb with your second. Then stretch your fifth (pinkie) finger up to a high Eb.
A First Inversion chord of Eb major uses the exact same notes as the Root Position, but played in a different order. A good way of playing this is with two G notes in your left hand, one octave apart. Then play a triad chord in your right using the notes Bb, Eb and G.
