In this lesson you’ll learn how to play every variation of a chord of Fmaj7 on piano, including its root position, first inversion and second inversion.
The notes required for an Fmaj7 piano chord are as follows:
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.
A First Inversion chord of Fmaj7 uses the exact same notes as the Root Position, but played in a different order. Play two octave A notes in your left hand. Your right hand can then make up the other notes - C, E and F.
