What to Expect

I am a pianist, photographer, gamer, gadgeteer -- sum it all up I'm your hobbyist! So expect things to be posted here regarding these hobbies.

I currently own a Yamaha PSRK-1, Nikon D90, a PS3, an iPad, VAIO which all make up my day. I'll be using those to put stuff here in these blog.

What to expect? Personal compositions and transcriptions which I make available for other people to enjoy. Some photographs that I want to share from my occasional travels. Games that I'm currently playing. Gadgets that I've acquired thru the course of this blog.

Join me as I start this new hobbyist site!

How to Play "How to Love" by Lil Wayne

One of the new songs by Lil Wayne, "How to Love", has been riding the top charts for quite a while now.  It's pretty easy to play with the piano or keyboard, the only difficulty is that most of the melody is quite "rapped" and he does it significantly fast to be able to play it on the piano.

Here are the chords that I use for keyboard/piano:

B - BM7 - EM7 - Em6  (This cycles from start to finish)


For the guitar, I put the capo on the 3rd and use this chords (just a simple transpose of 3 half steps for the piano/keyboard chords)

G - GM7 - CM7 - Cm6 (You may use Cm instead of Cm6 for simplicity)

The Lonely by Christina Perri

Christina Perri has brought us the song Jar of Hearts, and now she is with another big hit titled "The Lonely".

The sample music is below.



The chords are fairly easy.

Stanza:
Gm - D - Eb - Bb, D (2x)
Eb, F, Bb, Gm, Eb, F, D
Chorus:

Just Can't Get Enough by B.E.P Partition



This one song I heard from Black Eyed Peas is really easy to play on the piano.  I have the notes here.  The site requires to sign up to view the files.  Don't worry, it's free to download, no spam emails.  I placed it at $0.  I will be placing the free sheets here in the future. (As of now, even though the file is set at $0, paypal requires at least $0.01 to get the file -- sorry about this but we're trying to fix this issue.)

You could also buy new sheets from this website.
