Hey guys 🙂 

So, I've been playing with this song for the second day now and I really like it as it's something that sounds decent even if you're a beginner like me 😀

I decided to make a tutorial video for it, which I apologize for in advance, since this is the first time I ever try anything like this and it's 3 AM so my English is really broken at this time and I'm trying to do way too many things at the same time (count strings.. remember their names.. try to say the names of the notes.. number of the fingers.. and play violin at the same time lol). So I kinda overloaded my mind there when saying F# instead of C# (even though I was supposed to say Db, since on violin there should be some theoretic miniature difference between the two) 

But in any case despite the poor production work the video functions as intended and I hope that even someone who's a super beginner and has no idea about sheet music can play it.

I also recorded the chord progressions I played for my attempt at the song (in my progress thread) and I'm including it here so you can practice with that.. It's just some really really simple recording (I'm a beginner at piano too...) 

Enjoy and please post videos of you playing it! 😀 


 P.S: I also included the sheet music I had... It's pretty low quality, but readable... We used this with my music teacher when I was learning singing yeeeears ago 🙂 The chord progressions with pencil were made by my teacher so I can practice at home with the guitar (we sang it from G) and I just simply transcribed it to F and wrote it there with a pen.

Awesome @Ferenc Simon Thanks for this. I thought your tutorial video was done well.

This will be a fun song to add to my practice schedule!
