The notes required for a Gmaj7 piano chord are as follows:

  • G
  • B
  • D

It can be a little tricky playing all four notes of a Gmaj7 piano chord in your right hand. To make life easier, play the G with your left hand thumb. Then use your right hand to play a triad chord using the remaining notes of B, D and F#.

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