I grew up in the 70s and 80s listening to Elton John and Billy Joel. I started piano lessons to learn Piano Man but instead I spent 4 years playing a bunch of songs I didn't like and had never heard.
I bought Piano For Dummies and other self-teach books as an adult, but they got me no where. Tried some youtube video lessons but they weren't that organized. I came across this site about a week ago and learned Free Bird and a Beatles song. Why didn't my childhood teacher show me this method? Cool site!
