Piano Chord Chart For Augmented Triads

Here we have piano chord chart of the augmented chords (triads) in all 12 keys. It's just a chart until you make use of it.Sit at the piano and play these chords... have fun with them! You will master them before you know it. Play them as you observe their shapes. Take your time and enjoy the process - always! As always, I encourage you to play each of the chords in both hands, in all three positions - Root Position, 1st Inversion, and 2nd Inversion.

Special note: notice the "x" in the B Augmented chord. This is a symbol for a "double sharp," So an "F double sharp" is actually played as a "G." Since chords are built "in thirds" the distance (interval) between the letter "D" to the letter "F" includes three letters (D, E, F), the "Fx" is actually the theoretically correct way of notating the chord.  For the same reason, the E Augmented chord has a "B#" rather than a "C"... and the A Augmented chord has an "E#" rather than an "F."

Fingerings to use are as follows...

Left Hand Root Position: pinkie, middle finger, thumb
Right Hand Root Position:: thumb, middle finger, pinkie
Left Hand 1st Inversion: pinkie, middle finger, thumb
Right Hand 1st Inversion: thumb, middle finger, pinkie
Left Hand 2nd Inversion: pinkie, index finger, thumb
Right Hand 2nd Inversion: thumb, middle finger, pinkie

If you would like to accelerate your progress and boost your confidence when it comes to playing these chords in Root Position (after that the others are easy), get involved with
Piano Chords 101 Then you will approach this piano chord chart with a new perspective.
