Somewhere over the rainbow chords are fairly straight-forward to learn.
Most famously associated with the film The Wizard of Oz, ‘Over The Rainbow’ has also been played by many great jazz musicians over the years.
The tune follows an AABA form and the chord changes are quite repetitive making it an easy tune for beginners to learn and memorise.
We will start off with some very simple voicings and then add some bigger two handed chords.
Because the A section of the tune repeats itself 3 times, we will look at some interesting chord substitutions that can be used to liven up the tune and add variety to the performance.
This Somewhere over the rainbow piano lesson is designed for beginner jazz piano students.
