Continuing on with learning the chords we will need to play our Beginner's Waltz in C Major.

This time we will add the D major chord - the "two chord" (II) in the key of C major. However, we will view it as a "secondary dominant" chord - a "five of the five chord" (V of V). This means we are temporarily thinking we are in the key of G major and the G major chord is our temporary goal. This gives a little more depth or "flavor" to our piece.

In order to do this we will play a D in the bass with the left hand pinky on the first beat. Then the F sharp & A above with the left hand middle finger and thumb for the second and third beats.

Finally, we will wind up on the G major chord again.
