The ‘appoggiatura’ chords

How can we apply everything we learn about ‘appoggiatura’ to the world of chords?

In some pieces there are often ‘magic’ moments even using very simple chords. How can we obtain such a result?

All we need to do is to change the chord itself by using one or more ‘appoggiatura’.

In this way we will be able to get many new chords. And finally obtaining also an ‘appoggiatura’ chord.

We will cover all these topics in today’s lesson.
