Four Memories. There are many ways to memorize chords, scales, rhythms and tunes. We have several memories to uses. Fill them all.
Two Chord Groove. A nice groove with only two chords. Just swap two parallel triads, major and minor or visa versa. It gives a poppy/gospel sound.
Very usable to study triads and there inversions.
Moving Two Top Notes. With moving only two notes in the top of a chord the whole thing starts to groove. Add a bass and there you are.
Pedal Point is a nice technique to make tension for an intro, interlude or coda. One bass and on top shifting chords is, with some good timing, all we need.

Bass Notes Extra. Another bass 3 instead of 1, it gives a more classic sound and it's lovely to experiment with and gives a nice and better control over basic chords.
Moving Pedal Point. A pedal point can be static but also moving, just give it rhythm. A percussive lefthand gives another vibe.
Happy Birthday, an arrangement in five parts from easy to more colorful versions. The Sheet music is Available Here.
