The 2-5 Power Chord – Use this method to play Standards & Popular Songs by EAR
Have you ever wondered how composers or musicians play such rich arrangements to their songs?
When we open a fake book or look at a music arrangement, we scratch our heads and wonder how composers decide on choosing those chords?
Is it just a matter of guess work of using those chords because they sound good to our ears?
Some professional musicians wish to have a fuller arrangement in their songs, so they try to look for a harmonizing chord to ‘almost’ every melody tone. What is the quickest method to get to a beautiful arrangement without wasting time on guess work?
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.
This course is an introductory course to get you going using 2-5 Chords.
With the 2-5 Power Chord Method, I will develop a new series of Standards and Popular songs to show you how to put in the 2-5 Power Chords.

In each song, I show you how to take a tune from its basic harmony ( I IV V7 ) to advanced chords in other keys. First, we need to establish a harmonic foundation to the song with basic chords so that you understand how complex chords come into play.
I also 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.
