Going to see Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden this month? If not you can just catch him at the next show since he will be doing a "monthly residency" at the garden! Crazy right? Who does a residency at the garden besides the Knicks!? In any event enjoy this lesson on Piano Man, simplified for beginning guitarists! Get the Chart. Piano Man: Part One Piano Man: Part Two
Blackbird by Paul McCartney is one of the most requested acoustic songs for beginning guitarists. Unfortunately, it's actually quite difficult for a beginner to play. That all changes today with this elegant simplification of the song, now arranged for anyone who can play a handful of open chords. Enjoy! Get the Chart!
Here is a nice simplification of Strong Enough by Sheryl Crow. To keep it at the beginner level, we had to substitute some chords. Veteran players will notice that all of the B minors have been replaced with other chords but the chords work with the melody and at the end of the day that's the big thing. Enjoy! Get the Chart!
