The 2-5 Power Chord – Use this method to play Standards & Popular Songs by EAR

Have you ever wondered how composers or musicians play such rich arrangements to their songs? 

When we open a fake book or look at a music arrangement, we scratch our heads and wonder how composers decide on choosing those chords? 

Is it just a matter of guess work of using those chords because they sound good to our ears? 

Some professional musicians wish to have a fuller arrangement in their songs, so they try to look for a harmonizing chord to ‘almost’ every melody tone.  What is the quickest method to get to a beautiful arrangement without wasting time on guess work?

I have developed this Amazing 2-5 Power Chord Reharmonization Method to help you gain success to playing your favorite standards. 

2-5 Power Chords are found in many standards and popular movie themes.  They make rich full sounds that will captivate your audience wanting more.

This course is an introductory course to get you going using 2-5 Chords.

  1. You need to learn the TWELVE 2-5-1 Major Chord Progression

  2. You need to learn the TWELVE 2-5-1 Minor Chord Progression

  3. Learn how to play the 2-5-1 Chord Pogression on the  Left Hand

  4. Learn how to play the 2-5-1 in stepwise movement for smooth voicing

Once you are able to play these 24 Two-Five in Major & Minor Chord Progressions, you will find it very easy to understand complex chord progressions that we see in the Advanced Fake Books & Movie songs.


With the 2-5 Power Chord Method,  I have developed a new series of Standards and Popular songs to show you how to put in the 2-5 Power Chords.

  • 1.  Love Me Tender (Aura Lee)

  • 2.  Some Enchanted Evening

  • 3.  Yesterday

  • 4.  Misty

  • 5.  The Way We Were

  • 6.  For All We Know

  • 7.  Over the Rainbow

  • 8.  The Way You Look Tonight

  • 9.  Where Do I begin?

  • 10.  All I Ask Of You

  • 11.  Unchained Melody

  • 12. My Heart Will Go On

  • 13.  Moon River

  • 14.  You Light Up My LIfe

In each song, I show you how to take a tune from its basic harmony  ( I  IV  V7 )  to advanced chords in other keys.  First, we need to establish a harmonic foundation to the song with basic chords so that you understand how complex chords come into play. 

I also put in a section on Easy Improvisation.  I show you different ways to improvise around the chord progressions so that you learn “tone motion voice leading”.  Even when you don’t play the actual melody of the song, you can hear the song in the background when you play the harmonic chord progressions. This is a good ear training program to help you play many standard and pop songs by EAR.

  1. Luis Brito

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.


  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
