Click on the chord name. Chords are organized according to the symbols that you will see in popular sheet music. This is a beginner's list that covers chords through the 7th chord, such as C7. For more complex chords, such as C9, see the Chord Substitution List. Beginners are advised to learn chords through the seventh chord (such as C7) before venturing further into complex chords.

Below is a sample entry from the PIANO CHORD DICTIONARY:

Diagram of C major Piano Chord

The C chord is comprised of white keys. It is the first chord you should learn. It is also called "C major." This same chord may use a variety of chord symbols in sheet music, such as C ma and C maj. As a beginner, think of it as the center of the universe.

Click here for a more detailed sample page.

The actual PIANO CHORD DICTIONARY includes lots of other valuable information that will help you learn to play piano, such as suggested right hand placement, and acceptable chord substitutions for more complex chords. All the terminology that you will encounter in popular music chord symbols is explained in simple terms that anyone can understand, and see in the diagrams such as the one above.

For example, beginners should know that chords marked with a "9," such as C9, are best played in a simpler form until facility has been gained in playing more complex chords, such as "9th" chords. Thus a beginner is well advised to play the symbol C9 as C7.
