Question: How do you play g sharp on piano!?
i'm just starting piano so i don't really know that much!. so when i'm reading my music and it says to play a g sharp i thought you would find g and play the black key to the right of it!. how come when i watch ppl on youtube videos they are playing 3 different keys!? also what are they keys for it!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
g sharp (g#) is the black key between the g and a!. it is also called a flat (Ab)!.

If some ppl are playing different keys then they must be playing chords or more than one g sharp

there are a lot of g sharps on a piano they are just different pitches in the sme position on the keybord!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Hi Jona

That is the correct note on the right of the G!. It it says flat, you would play the one on the left!.
What you are seeing played is probably the G# chord which has at least 3 notes to it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
