Broken chord patterns are the classic way of learning and practicing keyboard chords. Broken chord patterns help you recognize the keys and train your hand to find the chords and move easily between inversions. Even better – broken chord patterns are ‘nearly music already’, so you can add a rocking bass line and be tapping your foot as you practice!
This Broken Chord Patterns 1 page is part of Musicarta.com's Patreon subscriber content.
Please dive right in and try it out – but you
may get more out of the module if you have studied the Finding
Inversions modules which build up to the Broken Chords pages first.
Click through to the first Finding Inversions lesson here and work
through the series.
Here's how we get from inversions to broken chords (ascending only).
Now repeat the process descending.
Finally, stitch the two halves together and practice playing up and down continuously.
Now go on to Page Two of this series,
to start to have some fun with it!
