fundamentals of neo-soul keyboard



There's a reason we associate the words "silky smooth" with neo-soul guitar. In this conceptual lesson, you'll examine a series of techniques and tools you can use to hone your tone and smooth out your playing.


Listen to any neo-soul song and you'll hear a ton of complex chordal movements. In this lesson, Nicklas pulls demystifies the art of the passing chord so you can breathe new life into your progressions.


But wait, there's more! We have seven additional bite-sized lessons where Nicklas breaks down some of his favorite neo-soul tools and techniques that he uses on a daily basis in his viral guitar videos.


Your primary goal on the first day of class is to learn the basics of chord embellishments in the neo-soul style. You'll also examine chord progressions and other useful techniques to start you on your neo-soul journey. Finally, you'll learn to embellish chords across two levels of difficulty before wrapping up the lesson in a jam with Nicklas.


How do neo-soul guitarists make their chord progressions sound so jazzy and complex? The answer is passing chords. These handy chords present an opportunity to create a melodic bridge between two chords. Certain passing chords can add tension or create a brief and unexpected change in music. When used effectively, they can seriously spice up a song!


Dive into seven bite-sized lessons where Nicklas pulls back the curtain on his neo-soul sound. These are perfect for intermediate and advanced players who want to grab some quick inspiration.

Members of the collective included singer and multi-instrumentalist D'Angelo, drummer and producer Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, producer J Dilla, singer-songwriter Erykah Badu, trumpeter Roy Hargrove, keyboardist James Poyser, singer Bilal, bassist Pino Palladino, rapper-producers Q-Tip (whose group A Tribe Called Quest inspired the collective) and Mos Def, and rappers Talib Kweli and Common.[1] Prior to its formation, Q-Tip, Common, Mos Def, and Talib Kweli were members of the Native Tongues collective.


Hello Giselle!First off, thank you very much for your extensive reviews! Ive gone through every single one of them.Im a complete rookie, Ive never learned how to read a single note nor have I ever played piano, but I wish to start, and I wish to do this on my own.Ive already bought an 88 key digital piano, and based on your reviews, I think that Pianofall is a must for learning the fundamentals (right?).However, I wish to complement it with a more interactive app too. My goal is to be able to read music sheets (not hardcore of course) and have a good general knowledge to be able to play casual songs in my home.Ive been able to narrow it down to the Skoove and Playground Sessions based on your comments. Between these two, which one would you recommend? Which one would you say has better lessons and also better ways of teaching? Or would you recommend a different one?


The CRC music program includes vocal and instrumental components as well as courses on music, history theory and electronic music.

This course is designed as a starting point for students with limited musical experience or for those wishing a basic course prior to enrollment in MUFHL 400. The course concentrates on learning to read and understand (visually, aurally, and kinesthetically) rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic notation, texture and form through keyboard and/or other instruments including voice as a window to music literacy and creativity.


This course is based on conceptual learning which is transferable to all areas of music study. Group activities include ear training, repertoire, sight reading and transposition, technique, improvisation, and written work. Goals are literacy and creativity in music through keyboard application. Recommended for all music majors, pre-school and elementary teachers, and required for non-keyboard music majors.
