Straddle Inversions for Piano Accompaniment or Improvisation

In this video, I am explaining how to use inversions in piano accompaniment or improvisation. The use of “Straddle Inversions” will enable you to spice up any song you are playing — either accompanying someone or in your own improvisation.   Inversions make a great embellishment to a song!

To get to where you can just “grab” the chord out of the air when you need it, be sure to practice the inversions as I show on the video. Have fun!

    Chord Piano is Fun! is a wonderful and thorough introduction to chord piano, breaking down the concepts and getting students quickly applying the relationship between notes, scales, chords, chord progressions, and songs. Applied theory at its best, since it has you not just read about the concepts, but guides you in understanding and practicing them right from the piano. The book is broken into various lessons which have a focus concept, practice instructions and techniques, places to write in the book answer questions, etc. There are also review sections and worksheets to further reinforce the concepts. There are plenty of song examples in different keys for students to use in their practice.

I’m glad you came to visit!
