This is yet another great example of what can be accomplished by knowing your chords and combine them with a nice set of basic-pattern combination.
Bruno really pours his heart out in this song, touching the hearts of ladies all over the world. Bastard. 🙂
Wanna do the same? Play the piano like he does! Here's how.
Oh, and you might wanna learn how to sing a little ;).
In the tutorial video below, I'll show you:
- The Intro
- The Verse
- The Chorus
After this becoming an immensely popular tutorial, I've made an updated version for it, filming and adding two new videos:
- A Cover / Tutorial where I play the song in its whole. Perfect to see how all the parts fit together and how it would sound when played as an entire song.
- Part 2. As this first version lacks the bridge (initially I figured you guys wouldn't care to much about playing that) in the Deluxe version of this tutorial, which can be found here in the Couturians' Lounge member area (not yet a member? sign up for a free profile [popup type="iframe" link_text="here" href="https://piano-couture.com/join-library/" /]!), I've completed the lesson by adding a second video showing how to play the bridge.
Both of these videos + additional downloads: the complete chord sheet, traditional sheet and MIDI file, can be found in the Couturians' Lounge member-area as this months free entry. That means everyone with a free profile can access everything from this one too!
Check it out here.
Or, if you just want the complete chord sheet, you can get that without any profile by just signing up for the newsletter here:
