The notes required for an Emaj7 piano chord are as follows:

  • E
  • G#
  • B
  • D#

It can be a little tricky playing all four notes of an Emaj7 piano chord in your right hand. To make life easier, play the E with your left hand thumb. Then use your right hand to play a triad chord using the remaining notes of G#, B and D#.

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