In this video we will explore how to play a B flat Chord on the piano:
The B Flat Major Chord is made up of 3 notes: B flat, D, and F.
If you’re reading a chord chart, you’ll see Bb. What that really means is you are to play a B flat Major Chord.
To find B flat, locate the group–of-three black notes. B flat is the highest black note of the three, or, the one furthest to the right.
The D is the white note between the group-of-two black notes.
The F three white notes higher than D (include D when you count the notes). Or, another way to find F is to play the white note to the left of the group-of-three black notes.
Obviously you can use any fingers to play the three notes, but to train yourself like a piano player,
Your left hand pinky will play the B flat, the middle finger will play the D, and the thumb will play the F.
In the right hand, your thumb will play the B flat, the middle finger will play the D, and the pinky will play the F.
