Chord Over Chord Technnique

Many of my music note reading students have gone on to playing chord charts. They are
gaining more understanding of slash chords. When playing the piano by ear, the exciting part is that you can play a song different each time through. This way you're
breaking up the monotony, which makes the music more appealing to the listening ear.

One way to do this is using the chord over chord/octave technique. This technique is done by playing a certain chord , like G Major, with the right hand and a different chord, E minor (Em) on the left hand. another way is to play the root octave with the left hand and not the chord. So, you could play either E octave or Em chord at the same time you play the G chord with your right hand.

The chord change would be written like this: G/Em if the chords were used on each hand or G/E if the right hand is playing a chord (G) and the left hand is playing an octave E. Since the right hand is usually playing a higher tone, it's chord is listed first to indicate it is over the left hand. Here I'm talking about the pitch. This chord change G/E is called G over E.

Now you have created a fuller sound. Normally, the change would be Em in the song, but using the previously mentioned technique, one has achieved a much more fuller sound. If you play Em, that's o.k. but playing G/E the next time you come to the same chord change creates a fuller and different sound.

The chord change G/E and G/Em is actually a split of the chord Em7
