Song: Take a Bow

Rihanna fan or not, Take a Bow was beautifully composed and written by Neyo and the production team Stargate.

Released in 2008, Rihanna’s single has risen to the top. Men lovers worldwide enjoy this song…there is just something about the sarcastic singer croning to her boyfriend that his “performance” was an Oscar winner. 🙂 Enjoy this first performance of mysterious hands showing us the keystrokes to the ballad Take a Bow.

David Sides does a beautiful rendition in the next youtube video. All is not lost when it comes to the material that can be found on the internet…parental supervision not required : ).

Now, this blog would be incomplete without a video of Hanson performing Mmm Bop. I mean Rihanna performing Take a Bow (very similiar songs, so you can see my initial confusion). Enjoy:

Ahhh yes, handsome guy and a stunning gal (not me…Rihanna) almost always make for a good video. Take a Bow is a wonderful ballad, and I wish you a great deal of fun while you take the time to learn how to play this song.

Throughout this article you will get a fantastic piano tutorial showing you necessary keys to play along with a great explanation of the notes. Now that we’ve gone through and taken the time to learn The Scientist, I think its time we watch a young gentlemen play the song on piano with a fascinating display of camera angles.

Coldplay can seem like a very difficult band to learn on piano, but once you practice The Scientist will become something quite easy. I hope I have assisted you in the teachings of another great song by Coldplay.
