Hey guys, my Mom brought me home some sheet music she found over at SheetMusic-Free.Com, which she's love me to learn for her and play! She's not a musician, and this is the first time she's shown me any support! Apparently she's of a generation where not openly denouncing one's ambitions and interests is the same as showing support, LOL! Anyhow, the song is not really difficult by any means with the exception of the very last chord, which is rolled! I can't figure out how the heck to play it, because the interval of the bass-clef chord is a twelfth! I have big hand and I can reach an interval of a tenth, but for the last note on top of that bass-clef chord I'd have to use my right thumb (#1), but them I cannot reach the G-flat at the top of the treble-clef chord. The chord reads as follows: F2-C3-F4-E4 G4(nat)-B5-D5-Gb6

This makes me wonder if the transposers and transcribers writing down these artist's music ever actually play them to see if they are reasonable for most peoples' hands, or if they just write the proper chords down and call it a day. LOL!

The chord has a wavy line, which means the notes are not played together like a standard chord, but one after the other quickly, starting from bottom to top. Think of a guitar strings being plucked, or a harp’s strings.

You don’t hold a note after it is played.

Great song, BTW!
