How to create a perfect mini grand piano with a simple chord progression
I like to think of piano tabs as a mini-grand piano.
When you play a piano tab you’ll usually hear the notes of a piano chord.
Piano tabs are the perfect instrument for composing music in harmony.
To create a beautiful piano tab, the key is used for each chord, which creates a natural sound.
For this article, we’ll be creating a mini grand with the piano chords A3, Eb4, C5 and D7.
The key for each of these chords is the same as the key for the piano tabs in the mini grand.
So to make the mini-guitar sound, you’ll need to add the notes from each of the piano notes to create your chord progression.
Start by creating the piano tab A3 in C minor.
You can either use a piano keypad or MIDI keyboard to create the chord progression by adding the notes A3 to A,B3 to B and C3 to C. 3.
Repeat this process to create each of your chords.
Next, we’re going to play the notes in the piano chord progression from the key of C3 and C4, as well as the notes C5, D3, D4 and E5.
You’ll notice that you need to use the A3 and B3 notes for each note of the key.
You don’t have to use them all, just the most important ones.
Add the D3 note and D4 note from each key and you’re done!
You can now play the chords as you normally would, using just the notes you added.
