keys lay out
by: Anonymous

Lynne whaz going? I've always loved the way pianos sounded growing up. I always fooled around on my keyboard but never got learn. I have a pretty good idea of the sound so am not tone deaf. Anyways. I was wondering if you could please send a layout of the chords as they are laid out on the keys.

Hi, Casey--Unfortunately, I have no way of doing such a layout. If you will visit:

Absolutely Free Piano Lessons and go to the "Beginning Piano Lessons", you will be taught the names of the keys. From there you can figure out the chords.

Best Wishes,
