Piano Lesson - Chinese New Year Song "Gong Xi Gong Xi"

Posted by Yoke Wong on 1/28/2013 to Piano Lessons

Chinese traditional new year song “Gong Xi” was written by Chen Gexin in 1946 to celebrate the triumph in Sino-Japanese War. Later the song’s lyrics were changed to celebrate the Chinese new year (lunar new year).

Download and print the Piano Sheet Music.

This song uses C minor scale (To learn more about minor scales).

You can master the melody of GongXi GongXi by practicing C minor scale with your right hand. As for the left hand, you can use simple broken C minor and F minor chords.

For those who are more advanced, you may break apart the C minor and F minor chords and use more syncopation rhythms.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Bonjour YOKI et félicitation pour tout ce que tu fais pour les débutants comme moi. J'ai aimé gong xi gong xi, je l'ai même téléchargé. Merci pour la partition il serait souhaite que ce soit la même chose avec la vidéo. Nous ne voyons pas bien le jeu des doigts, joue lentement en premier et normalement la deuxième fois et souhaitons aussi avoir la vidéo comme la partition. Merci Benjamin

Thank you so much for that Chinese New Year Song I just heard. My daughter-in-law was also a Chinese/Malaysian and used to live in Johor Bahru. She is now married to my son and living in Australia. She is a wonderful daughter-in-law and I love her very much. When I go home for a visit I will gift her with a piano to take to their new house. She used to take piano lessons when she was young. I know she will love getting back to playing the piano again.
