List of Piano Chords

The clickable diagram below shows 136 of the most common piano chords. For each of the twelve piano keys, I show eight different types of chords, Major, Minor, Diminished, Augmented, Minor 7th, Dominant 7th, Major 7th and Diminished 7th. For the black keys, I show two different spellings of the chords, one with sharps and one with flats.

Each of the chords below links to a page with an interactive tool to hear these chords and move them around the piano.
