Thankyou, I found this very informative. In order to study this more would it be possible to have a printout so that I can see the notation of the left hand.

The purpose of this video is to help you experiment improvising accompaniments to songs you know. The idea of the I - IV and V chords are simple so long as you are very familiar with your major scales. They are built on the notes of the major scale!

Try harmonizing first in C major so you have no sharps or flats to distract you. Then venture to G major or F major (which each have one accidental) until you are comfortable. Then you can venture to other keys.
