Free Piano Lesson Country Piano Fill

In todays Free Piano Lesson, I want to cover a very nice piano lick that is used mostly for country music fills…There are several variations of this lick that is played on thousands of country and gospel songs all over the country. And consist of using chord patterns and voicings to enhance the sound of the fill.

Fills like the one in todays Free Piano Lesson that I am getting ready to show you are very popular in todays Southern Gospel Music for artist like Jason Crabb and Mike Bowling and Country Music for artist like Alan Jackson, George Strait and others…

Just a couple of notes before we proceed. Below you will find this example. LC4. In our Free Piano Lesson today, the letters and numbers stand for (LC4) (L) is for Left Hand. (C) is the note to be played and (4) is the octave in which to play it. So C4 would mean play piano note C in the fourth Octave on the piano. More on this down below…

Free Piano Lesson

Today’s Free Piano Lesson will be in the key of C but I highly recommend learning all progressions in as many keys as possible. Also, all chords listed below should be played on 8th notes count… So to make sure you’re not playing the lick when the vocalist is singing… This is what Piano Fill Means… Piano is filling up the space in between the singing. 

Also notice that in every example I play C notes on both the low and high end of the piano…

———————————————————————————

The voicing of these chords is what make the tone so nice.  and this sequence of chords also allows you to break this lick up as others have and make a couple of fills out of it for example…

Just use chords 1, 2 and 3 by their self and then use 4, 5 and 6 by their self…

I would highly suggest experimenting with this idea and coming up with different ways to improve on the pattern yourself and always remember to put your touch on the lick…
