Piano Lessons for Beginners: Part 1 - Getting Started! Learn some simple chords

Good tutorial on simple chords in C major for harmonization.
I vi IV V (C Am F G)
Many songs use this chord progression.

The video shows good voice leading in moving from chord to chord. One thing that might be helpful to find chords is to always find them in the ROOT position first and make a note of the notes (root-3rd-5th) and be aware of the two inversions.
In other words, a C major chord will ALWAYS ONLY have these 3 notes.
No other notes exist concerning the C Major chord.
However, any three note chord has a first and second INVERSION.
Here are the three positions for any triad (3 note chord).
I will use the C major chord as an example.
Root position: C E G
First inversion: E G C
Second inversion: G C E

You will have a doubling in the left hand of the root note of the chord.

For good voice leading, when moving to the next chord, keep all the common tones between the chords and move what ever is left over to the nearest chord tone.
If there are no common tones, just move to the next chord in the simplest way possible, do not make large JUMPS from chord to chord. This is not good voice leading and it makes things harder to play if you jump, plus it does not sound correct.

I hope this video helps you to get started on your chords.
