V-log pattern lesson: Top two – bottom.

Free "6 Layers"-Framework


A free workshop to learn how to finally actually sound like those pro piano singers/songwriters, without ever needing sheets.



The Pop-Piano Method

Hack the Piano is the essential guide & backbone to all my lessons. Get this bible of Pop-Piano, learn to understand the language of music and express yourself just like the pros, without sheets by chords, by ear, by heart.


Hi All!

This week, another short, highly useful, video-lesson.

It’s meant to -once again- show you the might of patterns and actually learning you a (new) pattern, as well as give you a preview of what you can expect in both the current course, as well as the upcoming, brand new, video-based-six-week bootcamp course to learn pop-piano basics.

A note to my current course followers: you might recognise the pattern from this video, but I think the extra explanation given here can help all of you too.

Also, I tried to throw in some different chord-progressions for all of you to practice this pattern with.

I actually meant to make the video even shorter than it turned out, with no extra talking / explaining, just showing you the pattern, but when I started filming I felt obliged to clarify a bit by talking.

The new course, however, will be a mixture between me giving you ‘talking lessons’ – video’s (longer video’s where I explain more, like a true one-on-one piano lessons) and very short, to-the-point video’s with no added b.s. (talk) like you current course followers are used to loving.

As said, it’ll all be video-based.

The lighting-up keys, however, will be added to all video’s in the new course.

Ok, on to this weeks lesson:



Top two notes – bottom note.


  • In the first 2 minutes are meant to explain some basics and repeat the pattern of a couple of weeks ago.
  • At 2:18 the new pattern starts.
  • At 3:53 I start playing it over a different chord progression.


At 5:47 I start ‘fiddling around’ (as I describe it myself :)). Who can figure out the chords there? I dare you, that’s this weeks trivial question! Put your answer in the comments below this post.



Questions? Remarks? Show me how you play this song! Please leave a comment below!
I’m also very curious which tutorial you’d like to see next!
