Simple Ballad Accompaniment 2 (2/3/5, 1)
This simple accompaniment pattern can be used for Christmas music or other ballads. I personally love the sound of this pattern.
This pattern consists of playing the root note of the chord with the left hand, and the chord written with the right hand, but you will be adding the 2nd to the chord. You will play the 2,3, and 5 together and then moving to the 1 (root) in an 8th note pattern.
Please watch this video to demonstrate what I mean by this. I am demonstrating using "Away In A Manger."
When playing any of your ballads, it's always a good idea to use different patterns within a song for interest. I hope you decide to try it! God bless and have fun!
