I watched this live version of "Your Song" and I can't really play by ear that well, and I was wondering if anyone had sheet music for this or knew of some sort of Sythesia Style tutorial... I want to play it EXACTLY as it sounds in the video.

None of the tutorials I have found match the EXACT same tune as this one is the video.

Here's the link to the video: https://youtu.be/mTa8U0Wa0q8

Thanks.

This site might interest you

It has many popular songs on piano, and the Instructors take you step by step. "Your Song" is one of the songs.

No two performances of "Your Song" are exactly the same and none of them are exactly the same as the original recording. That's just not how Elton works. If you want to play it exactly as in this video you will have to figure at least some of it by ear at least to the point of noting in whichever music you use where the differences are.


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

Why do you like that version so much? There are live versions on Here and Now album and Live in Australia that I think are much much better.

I don't think you will have much luck finding a transcription for the version in the link you provided.

If you know your chords and can play arpeggios up and down, then you could move up and down the keyboard and try different inversions until it sounds close enough to what you want.
