A funny piano lesson plan for kids
This story/idea came about when I noticed the fingering of the first inversion of the V7 chord. In the key of G, this would be the D7 with the F sharp in the bass.
It looks like this on the staff:
And the fingering looks like this:
I mentioned that it’s like you are picking up an icky tissue. My students never laugh so hard!
So, it’s now become known as the icky chord. Which is a lot easier to say than the V7 in the first inversion.
By the way, this can be used for any V7 chord in this inversion in any key.
