Fats Waller, Oscar Peterson, and Scott Joplin.
They’re some of the greatest pianists of all time, and they all played stride piano.
Stride was a hugely popular form of jazz piano in the early 20th century. It’s not easy to play, because it involves jumping your left-hand around the keys (or striding – hence the name).
Because of this, it’s also a fantastic way to improve your keyboard familiarity, accuracy, and your understanding of how chords are made and how you can play them.
