Sombre and melancholic chord progression almost as serious as Rachmaninov.
From the first time I heard this song, I knew I had to play it. It’s got a good melody and pretty simple format.
http://youtu.be/cRNG0G94Wfw I’m trying this out, the rhythm latched on and came naturally. But I am still not sure whether it is the right rhythm or backing for this ballad. Also I think it would benefit from backing vocals or someone doing the harmony to “fill out”. What do you think.
http://youtu.be/Fdep1w4JyE0 This song always reminds me of the beach (because of the video). It is in original key of D. The changes are almost the same throughout. Keep a rocking rhythm, like the sea waves, very tick tock.
Very easy but still impressive. This is a great piano song. Intro is C/F/C/F and the verse is the same. If you are a beginner, it is probably easier to sing the melody of the verse and play the chords rather than play all the chords and the melody together (more advanced).
The most universally sung song of all time, in every language. You will be able to play this at least once at year, heh heh! Guaranteed. THE CHANGES: E / / |B7 / / |B / / |E / / |E7 / / |A / Am /| E / B7 / |E / / ||
‘…His most intellectual close friends get to call him T.C….’
1984 song by Tears for Fears. Tips #1 Learn the melody first, until you can play it flawlessly. Tip#2 Learn the bass line before you put it all together. Tip#3 play very slowly, one note every two seconds. Then put it all together and it’s magic.
A child-like tune is always simply, catchy and easy to play. Learn to play the melody flawlessly first. Master the left hand rhythm second.
