In this 30-minute video lesson you'll become familiar with chord inversions while also learning to play the FULL song 'Natural Woman' as performed by Aretha Franklin (written by Carole King).

  • Your tutor, Ruth, will begin with an easy-to-follow demonstration of chord inversions and then guide you through the iconic song section by section.
  • This tutorial requires a basic understanding of forming major and minor 3-note chords. But, if you're not there yet, you can simply watch Ruth's fingers on the piano and see exactly how to play it.
  • Each video has the option of watching in slow motion for easy practising.

Learning chord inversions can seem scary at first, but in the context of this iconic soul tune you'll pick it up in no time and learn a new song to boot!

Kia ora! I'm a lifelong pianist and piano-music enthusiast from New Zealand! After my music degree, I cut my teeth as a developer and presenter of the highly successful Rocket Piano method (teaching 90,000 students worldwide), then spent 7 years as music editor for Europe's largest print music publisher.

While working in the industry I noticed a lack of accessible, easily-digestible piano resources online. So in 2016, after moving home for the sunny beaches of NZ, I began creating online courses with the primary goal of making the piano quick, simple & fun to learn: Piano Picnic was born!

Three years later and I've taught over a thousand students how to make progress on the piano without becoming bored with the whole thing! My specialty is coaching piano in a way that feels like a friend is at the piano with you, motivating you toward real progress!
