A Thousand Years Lyrics: Heartbeats fast Colors and promises How to be brave How can I love when I’m afraid to fall But watching you stand alone All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow One step closer I have died everyday waiting for you Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you For a thousand years I love you for a thousand more Time stands still Beauty in all she is I will be brave I will not let anything take away What’s standing in front of me Every breath Every hour has come to

Part 1 of Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven in C# minor. Hey guys, hope you enjoy part one. Please leave me some notes on how to improve my tutorial videos – Any comments are appreciated. Here are all the notes for Part 1. This should be used in conjunction with the video as this will probably be hard to follow if just read by itself. I’m hoping this isn’t too complicated; if it is please let me know and then I’ll try to make it better. Notes to the left of the slash are what the left hand plays and what’s right of the slash are what the right hand plays. Notes that are together with no commas in between are to be played together (as can be seen by octaves in the left hand). If there is a dash to the left of the slash, nothing is played in the left hand. When there is a x2 or x4 with the notes, only the right hand is to be played that many times. Hopefully this can be of help, if not I’ll try to make it easier to understand. icon smile How To Play A Thousand Years Piano Tutorial / Sheet Music (Christina Perri) C#C# / G#, C#, E x4 BB / G#, C#, E x4 AA / A, C#, E x2 F#F# / A, D, F# x2 G#G# / G#, C, F# – / G#, C#, E G#G# / G#, C#, D# – / F#, C, D# C#G#C# / E, G#, C# – / G#, C#, E x2 – / G#G#, C#, E, (high)G# CG#C / G#G#, D#, F# – / G#, D#, F# x2 – / G#G#, D#, F#, (high)G# C#C# / G#G#, C#, E – / G#, C#, E F#F# / AA, C#, F# – / A, C#, F# BB / G#G#, B, E – / G#, B, E BB / AF#, B, D# – / AB (long stretch), B, D#

  35. whisky6291 says:

    Yes. A very good job done but a bit too fast. Also camera angle was not best. Could not always see the keys you where playing. Sometimes on Youtube we can slow the video down but cant on yours. Any idea why. Thanks.

  40. CherrySplash2 says:

    what grade is this?

  41. 700tbm says:

    Good, but you could position the camera above the keys… at times it’s hard to see what you are doing. Also, slow down a bit, we are in no hurry!
