What about the Peanuts theme?

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Eleanor Rigby?

Only two easy chords (Em, C)

Wow, thanks! I never quite realized that Eleanor Rigby is so simple; I suppose the orchestral arrangement makes it sounds complicated( and awesome)

Oooo! I have some old paino books from the 70s (my dads) that have SUPER simple Beatles arangments of Eleanor Rigby, yesterday, Michelle, and a few others that I can't think of right now, but if you want I could scan them in and post them here.

I liked The Beatles before it was cool. (as in, I like all their music before 1965. I mean, I still like their later stuff but am very picky about what songs I like, while their older stuff I love it all. I am just not a fan of drugged out Beatles. Drugs scare me.)

Oh, and I also have some more if you need any! My family is very musical so we have a TON of random music laying around. Good Luck playing!heart

I can't listen to that tune without thinking...

Thanks everyone for your help, I suppose I could tell a bit of this "test" of mine....

One word-it was horriblea-hard-days-night-ringo-13Like a scene from a nightmare. Platform stage with with bright lights and the "judges" sitting in front of me, rest of the hall was dark. And the piano I was supposed to play was so "stiff", the keys were hard to press, nothing like I was used to, and then some musicians tried to back me up, but they soon gave up. Because I sucked. I tried to play Eleanor Rigby but I just froze because it went so badly, then I tried Michelle, it was slightly better but horrendous all the same. "Have you had any piano lessons" one of the judges asked with an incredulous face.

Needless to say- I haven't. And I'm quite certain that person didn't mean it as "ohh, you are so talented considering your background"a-hard-days-night-john-7. I think I have a clue now how the Idols candidates must feel- especially those that fail.

Well, the good news is, you can only get better! Forget all about the horrors of it, and keep practicing. You'll show them what you can do one day!heart
