Play Piano 13:  Play Popular Songs By Ear Using Chord Progression!  Improvise & Put 2-5 Power Chords to “My Heart Will Go On”  + WORKBOOKS

I have developed this Amazing 2-5 Power Chord Reharmonization Method to help you gain success to playing your favorite standards.

_________________________

 2-5 Power Chords are found in many standards and popular movie themes.  They make rich full sounds that will captivate your audience wanting more.

In this song “My Heart Will Go On”, I show you how to take a tune from its basic harmony  ( I  IV  V7 )  to advanced sophisticated chords.  

My Heart Will Go On” is theme song of the Titanic Movie in 1997. The music is written by James Horner, lyrics by Walter Afanaseiff and recorded by Celine Dion. This became Dion’s biggest hit and one of the best selling singles of all time.

Here’s the Secret to this Song:  This song has a distinct chord progression: C  Em7  F  C.  Learn this chord progression well to play many mellow love ballads that are found in many  standards.

We are going to follow a Play by Ear Procedure:

First, we need to establish a harmonic foundation to the song with basic chords so that you understand how complex chords come into play.   You are going to improvise the song with basic chord progression by EAR.

I put in a section on Easy Improvisation.  I show you different ways to improvise around the chord progressions so that you learn “tone motion voice leading”.  Even when you don’t play the actual melody of the song, you can hear the song in the background when you play the harmonic chord progressions. This is a good ear training program to help you play many standard and pop songs by EAR.

Second, Learn 2-5 Powr Chord Rules & Chord Substitutions to “My Heart Will Go On Improvisation“. 

In this song, I teach you how to use 2-5 Power chords to reharmonize the song from the harmonic basic chord foundation.  

  • Learn how an easy chord progression of using 2-5 standards chord progressions. 

  •  Learn how to create half-step chromatic movement to create beautiful sounding basslines.  


In the full arrangement, you will be playing the song in Key of G with the following chords: 

  • C6

  • Em7

  • F6

  • CM7

  • G7b9

  • G/D

  • FM9

  • Fm7

  • Bb7

  • Am7

  • Gm7

  • C7b9

  • F#m7b5

  • B7

  • Dm7

  • D7

  • C6/9
