The Big Book of Five-Finger Positions
- Gateway Editions
Five finger positions on the major, minor, diminished, augmented, Lydian, harmonic minor, and major and minor Blues chords, with a consistent presentation format so the student can focus on shapes and note names, rather than changes in movement and rhythm. Designed to promote note-name identification, L-R hand independence, chord-shape differences, and general familiarity with the most common shapes in piano music. Great for teaching beginners the staff lines and spaces, great for teaching intermediate players chord names and shapes, great for classical musicians who want to know more about improvisational materials.
