Matt then reveals how to go beyond the basic triads you already know by playing seventh chords, ninth chords, and altered chords. You start improvising melodies using various scales and modes by playing along with Matt. Learning to improvising is such a great skill to have when it comes time to write memorable hooks and melodies. Continuing with the course, you learn to read lead sheets, you discover different ways to play open and closed voiced chords, and you learn the specifics of playing different keyboard sounds (acoustic and electric pianos, organs, analog synths).
