    Hey,

    I'm a beginner and learning the piano scale and notations from a teacher so i wanted to peruse and I went on the website to look at the piano arrangment for Don't Stop Me Now by Queen:

    http://www.e-chords.com/guitartab.as...3446&keyb=true

    and at the bottom there is the piano notation however when i play it there is a strangeness in sound. I'm not entirely sure. On the scale at the bottom i follow it thus playing F, Am7, Dm7, Gm7, C7 etc. I use my right hand most of the time.

    What am i doing wrong?

    All comments are very much appreciated.

    It probably sounds **** because those are just block chords shifted up and down the keyboard, without and real voice leading. Can you not play the bass note in the LH (or whatever note the bass in the track is), and change the inversions of the chords in the RH?

    Make them up. You'll probably be better off if you leave out the 5th in each chord as well.
