LoL I tried to search for "accords" and I did not find a thing!!!! :P

Try "Piano Tabs" :)

Doing so, I ran across this:

"Riders of the Storm" (by The Doors) chord progression

I'm not sure if this is what you are lookng for, but it's a start, no? :)

Research them yourself, then post them here.

Here's a start: The "We come to honor" in TTLG goes Am F C G (it's really in another key but the "distances" between the chords are right - I don't recall the correct term right now).

I figured out how to play Rise on the piano. If someone can help me tab it(I've never tabbed before) I will gladly put it up. :)

Just write the accords on like a text document.

Well, you don't use tabs when playing keyboards...

BTW, it's "chords", not "accords". ;)

Piano tabs

Well, you don't use tabs when playing keyboards...

Just wanted to let you know, there is such a thing as a piano tab.


The first kind of piano tab I saw was in a book where they used lines to represent black keys and spaces to represent white keys. This creates little groups of lines in twos and threes. There was a diagram of a vertical piano keyboard to the left of the "staff" to serve as a kind of "clef". They used filled noteheads on the lines or spaces to indicate wich keys to press.

It looked something like this: (attached image)



While looking online, I also found completely different kinds of piano tab that I've never heard about before today. See Wikipedia's article on keyboard tablature.

The first method in the article uses text and is more compact than the tab method above, so it makes more sense to use it online. It uses lowercase letters (cdefgab) to indicate natural keys and uppercase letters (CDEFGAB) to indicate sharp keys. Each line has a number in front of it to represent which octave it's in.

3|---|-c-|-d-|
2|-b-|-a-|-b-|
2|-G-|-f-|-g-|
2|-e-|---|---|


There's a second method in the article that just uses individual numbers for every key, but I don't quite understand the explaination of it.
