They say a picture is worth a thousand words. How about an animated picture? The animated image below shows some basic chords on a piano keyboard in the key of C.
Practice moving between the chords using both hands.
You will notice that the C note remains the same for each chord. After all, that's the note that all those chords are built from (of course you know that's called the 'root note', right?) When practicing, release all three fingers from the keyboard to play each changing chord. Or... play by holding the C note down and moving your other fingers to create the new chord shapes.
