How to play chords on piano (Cómo tocar acordes en el piano)

In this video, we will learn how to build chords. Chords come from scales. That´s why is very important to learn the scales very very sufficient, because the better you know your scales, the easier it is for you to learn the chords.
The chords we´re going to discuss in this video..We´re gonna learn how to do the Major chord, the minor chord, diminished, diminished 7th, half diminished, augmented, 6th, 7th, 9th chord, the 11th chord, 13th chords, Major 7th chord, Major 9 chord, minor 7 chord, minor 9, minor 11, suspended 4th, suspended 2.
Starting on with some of the chords on the key FC, our scales numbers are number 1 to 8. For example in the key FC, the C scale is (he plays the scale), that is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
So, one thing that is important to remember is that chords are predominantly buillt of your odd numbers. When I say "odd numbers" I mean starting from the number 1 and then you get all the other numbers, so there will be 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13. 13 is the highest number that you need to go up to. And where I get the 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13th from is also gonna come from what we call extended major scales or extended scales. For example, in the key FC we say: "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and then, we say 8. And we know that our 8 and our 1 are the same note. So, we are in the key FC and therefore, your 8 is a C as well as your 1 is a C.
So, that be the case 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and the key going would be 9, 10, 11, 12, 13.
So therefore, if here it´s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 8 and 1 is the same. So, there would be 9 and 2 would be the same. So, in the C scale, your 9 would be a D or you can think as well as 2. Then your 10 is the same as the 3; 11 is the same as 4; .....
