You are about to learn:
Artist:
Billy Joel
Song: Piano Man

Throughout the site you have most likely discovered many piano tutorials. Now we are going to experience the song Piano Man which has been done by Billy Joel and accompanied by Elton John some occasions. This song is a great display of great musician multitasking with the use of a harmonica, the piano of course, and vocals.

The first video that you will experience will be a fabulous piano tutorial which will take you through the entire songs piano parts. If you take a look at this gentlemens youtube site you will discover he does a lot of piano tutorials, each being just as good as the next. Lets take a look at his well layed out tutorial.

He does the tutorial so well you will be able to go through it just a few times and have the song pretty much down pat.

Throughout the world you will discover many covers done of Piano Man but none quite like the next video you will take a look at. He is capable of doing all the things that Billy Joel does himself, including the harmonica and vocals. It is one of the most amazing covers I have ever seen in my entire life.

Now that you have sat here through the tutorial and one of the best covers ever, I think its time we take a look at Billy Joen himself and a special guest known as Elton John playing this song live. This is a great version of the song done by these two amazing singers.

All the camera angles of that video were done fantastic. Hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. I know I have been singing this song in my head all day long since I watched this video.

Now that we have learnt the fascinating song Piano Man it is time to rest our fingers and begin our next upcoming tutorials. Bookmark this blog, there are new posts coming your way.

Coming up soon will be a treat of newer songs coming from Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and many more.

Piano Lesson #18

View all previous Piano / Keyboard Lessons

You are about to learn:
Artist:
Vanessa Carlton
Song: Best Behaviour or Only You

Now it is time to take on the piano tutorial for Best Behaviour or Only You which has been written by Vanessa Carlton. There is so much to this song that it has been split into two different tutorials to assist in your learning. Once you get playing though you will get the hang of things quite quickly.

Its time to start the piano tutorial, the first part will explain the keys you will be using and what you will do with them. Take your time, you will get the hang of things eventually.

This first lesson was very helpful in the playing of Best Bahaviour or Only You, now I hope this second video tutorial will be even more helpful. Enjoy,

When you put the two videos together after a bit of practice with each then you will soon be getting the song down. Now that we’ve completed these piano tutorials its time to take a break and watch the song all put together by a wonderful pianist. Sadly this song never made it onto Vanessa’s newest album so there hasn’t been a video created for it. Hope you enjoy watching this pianist play the song, quite fascinating.

Now that you’ve gone through the tutorials and watched someone else play the song I hope that gives you enough hope to put this piano tutorial to great use.

~Chrissi~

Up next will be some more wonderful songs from Coldplay, if you have any requests just let me know and I will get them done for you!
