T N are presented the chords of the
I key of F sharp and its relative, the key of D
■ sharp minor. Both of the*: keys are regarded
* as difficult for beginners in music to under
talsje, but»with the use of the charts the chords may
be'readily played and soon committed to memory.
Place one of the charts at right angles with the
keyboard", so that thesmall letter D with a dash
above it'on the chart is directly over Don the key
board. Then the white spaces on the chart will be
over the white keys and black spaces over the black
The top, middle and lower sections on the
lower chart represent the three chords, a mastery ,
of which will enable any one to accompany on the
piano any song or melody in the key of E, and
the upper chart represents the chords of the key
of D sharp minor. The black letters are to be
played with the left hand, the colored letters with
the right hand.
Now having placed the chart on the piano,
play the black letter on the top section witrr the
left hand and then the three colored letters in
unison with the right hand. Next play the mid
dle section in the same way, then the lower section
and then return to the top section. The small
. letter D with a dash above it which gives the
chart position must not be played.
The knowledge of the keys and facility in *
striking the : proper chords form the basis of all
musical knowledge. Keep the chart on the piano
until yon are thoroughly Jamiliar with the chords
in the keys given in this week's lesson, and, when
memorized, you are quite as well equipped for the
playing of accompaniments as one who has studied
music for years.
