This is coming from session 17: 'Gettin' the Blues', specifically when you get to the workshop and are learning the 'Pop Progression'
This is not too big of an issue, & I'm sure somewhere in my mind I'm missing a simple detail which is why I'm not understanding something right NOW that I probably already now, but I'm the real OCDish/quick to stress type.
I start stressing before I even begin to looking for the answer, the following is the piece in question:
I'm no where no a professional yet, & am self teaching (i've made tons of progress since starting from complete scratch 6 months ago, no music/instrument experience at all) & I know that I usually can figure things out if I just keep going, eventually I cover something later on that helps me understand prior points of confusion, but like I mentioned the OCD is driving me crazy, & I've been sitting at the piano all day stuck on this in semi depression, lol.
In total the instructor (Will Barrow) plays a total of 27 chords, which makes sense by what's written on the staff. The 13 displayed chords x2 (because of the repeat symbol) + the resolving Eflat, what's confusing me is at the top of the staff, which from what I understand shows passing chords, & also that from what I heard is what Will Barrow is stating/instructing for the piece in the video, yet he's only playing the chords that I see illustrated in the staff. For example in the 2nd & 3rd bars I see that on top of the staff it's showing D & then C. I don't see that in the treble clef staff though. As I wrote this, I began thinking it may have something to do with the left hand in the bass clef, & the bass clef notes? Maybe passive chords(notes) can be played within both the treble & bass. I don't know I'm confused. Can someone confirm my recent thinking, or explain this whole situation? Thank you.
