This next lesson teaches you a gorgeous way to break up a chord with the left hand. It involves lots of notes so be sure you know your chords well.

I have done a lesson on this before, but never in 3/4 time and with a Christmas song. in 3/4 time, you will be playing the Root, Fifth, Ninth, Third, Fifth, Seventh.Those are all eighth notes. Its called a Full Roll and it works beautifully for ballads, I will demonstrate with a Christmas favorite, "Christmastime is Here". If you are playing a song with 4/4 time, you will play the same notes with an additional Fifth and Third going down from the Seventh.
