A valuable aid for playing the piano. This chart is helpful for both beginners and more advanced pianists. One of the most frustrating things for beginners is losing their place in the music when they have to look down at their hands on the keyboard to change chords. Chord inversions show how to keep the hand in a close range of notes so the fingers can just move up or down one note and allow the player to keep eyes on the music. For the advanced player, inversions create more interesting voice leading between chords.
