I’ve written out a list of 30 tracks in root position using triads in the original keys with the verse, chorus and variations marked clearly for you so you can play them right away.

As there are 12 major keys, artists and bands choose their keys depending on many things, the singer’s vocal range, instruments etc. This can be a bit overwhelming when you’re starting off the piano trying to figure out these songs and keys, as flats and sharps can make the piece really hard to play and hard to work out on the piano. That’s why I’ve prepared this video to show you how to play these 30 tracks in various keys, to help you play in different keys and therefore you are learning to play more chords on the piano. Also I wanted to show you how many songs use the same progressions. These are only 30 I know there are many more. Do you know a – VI – IV – I – V Song ?
