In my dreams I am an incredible musician who can shred on any instrument. Then I wake up, and I am still a beginner. But, you gotta start somewhere, right? Please help me expand my keyboard repertoire.
I'm no talented musician, but I sure enjoy pretending to be one. After spending a few years on guitar and ukulele, I recently decided to expand my horizons a bit. I bought a badass Casio keyboard from the 90's from some dude off Craigslist a few weeks ago, and have been happily practicing away on this POS.
Problem is, I'm having a bit of trouble thinking of more songs to learn! What are your favorite piano/keyboard songs that wouldn't be too difficult for a bit of a beginner to pick up?
I can read music, but I have also been using youtube tutorials to help me with tricky parts. My taste is eclectic and I've been working on songs from classical to pop to indie and everything in-between. To give you a better idea of my skill level, here are a few of the songs i've learned so far:
-Minuet in G (Bach)
-Let it Be
-Hallelujah (Rufus Wainwright arrangement)
-Mad World (Gary Jules)
-The Cave (Mumford and Sons)
-The way we get by
(Spoon) This song is awesomely badass and probably my favorite thing to play. Recommendations for more fun songs like this would kick ass.
So friends, what next?
