Thanks

Man I love them Vintage Vibe restorations! I also love their custom slabs. One day I'd like to have one.

As for the style; I'd say any Chord style course would do it depending on your skill level. I might just look on YT for a tutorial of lady madonna and learn it that way. Learning the tune will teach you skills that are transferrable to other tunes in the chordal style.

This song is a bluesy boogie-woogie style.

Transcribe! https://www.seventhstring.com/

Download the youtube video and play it using Transcribe! to slow down and loop small sections of the video over and over until you get that tiny piece of it and then on to the next tiny piece. Though Transcribe! has long been used on MP3s, for the last few years, it has also worked equally well on video files too. From there, just continue working with youtube videos that show the hands playing the parts on the piano as the one you referenced does.

I think youtube itself may provide some of this functionality, but with Transcribe! you have complete control and can EQ the sound so you can hear what you need to hear to figure it out.

Hi

Lady Madonna was inspired by Humphrey Lyttleton's (British Jazz Trumpter and broadcaster) "Bad Penny Blues". So the inspiration is essentially boogie-woogie. And although anything works on a Rhodes piano (I love them) it's not a style I'd associate with that instrument.

Here's a couple of links to some I like.

https://www.musicgurus.com/course/introduction-to-blues-piano-paddy-milner

https://www.musicgurus.com/course/improvising-blues-piano-part-1-with-tim-richards-basic-principles

Both of these are from the same company, and you could pay for the sets of lessons.
I should point out that I haven't done that.

However some of their material is available free, either legitimately (or not).
So you can check those out to see if you like what they are offering.

There are thousands of free blues and boogie instructional videos on YouTube. Quite a lot are very good. Normally (but not always) if they are well filmed and professional looking the tuition is the same. A wobbly camera and low quality filming, may mean the instruction isn't that great either (but again not always).

So I'm not sure it's worth paying at all, given the amount of free material out there.
But you'll have to sift through the free material......

Cheers

If it is boogie woogie that you want, then check this guy out:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClw8Huc_XZcz46GJh5Z0wuA/playlists

All his videos are free on youtube and you can purchase the PDF books that go along with them. He has a lot of videos in which he performs in public places around the UK, but look at the playlists to find the teaching series. That is where you will find information on how to purchase his download PDFs to go along with the videos - a much less expensive alternative to the more expensive lessons at other sites, but still a very legitimate instructor.

Another good Boogie-Woogie resource is Arthur Migliazza. He has a website with free Boogie Woogie lessons, plus a Youtube Channel and a book for piano. It's worth it to check out some of his blues/boogie performances, he has a really nice smooth smokey piano technique which is can be quite challenging in this music genre. (you know where there can be a whole lot of banging going on)
