Bb Chord on Piano

Home » Piano Chords » Bb Chord Piano Bb Chord

You can easily play an Bb major chord in the root position by placing your 1st, 3rd and 5th fingers on Bb (under middle C), D (above middle C) and F with the right hand. (If you don't know the numbers of the fingers go to the Basic Piano Fingering Page.

Follow the The Major Chords lesson If you haven't done so yet to see how the Bb chord has the same optimistic or joyful sound as all other major chords because all major chords are built out of the same Musical Intervals.


The intervals which create a piano Bb chord

So just like the other major chords Bb major is built out of a major third which defines the chord as a major chord and a minor third on top of it (Bb-D-F).

If we were to try playing this chord by ear we would probably go to Bb which is the key note of the chord, skip one white key hit the D note, skip one key again and hit the F note. When we'll play these notes together we'll probably figure that we get that famous optimistic sound that defines all major chords.
