The notes required for an Fmaj7 piano chord are as follows:

  • F
  • A
  • C
  • E

It can be a little tricky playing all four notes of an Fmaj7 piano chord in your right hand. To make life easier, play the F with your left hand thumb. Then use your right hand to play a triad chord using the remaining notes of A, C and E.

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