Hi and welcome to Blues Piano Sheet Music,
I started this Blues Piano Sheet Music website and YouTube channel because I realised there were other piano players all over the world that, just like me, loved Blues Piano but just couldn’t figure out the notes or didn’t have the time to.
Yeah, I can already hear the critics, “Blues comes from the soul, it shouldn’t be played from notation.” “The best blues players can’t even read music notes.”
Yes, there is a lot of truth in that, but I figure less than 1 in a million was born with that gift. Born with the blues running through their veins. Born with an acute ear and a sense from a bygone era, the feeling to lay-down some cool blues on the piano.
Ask yourself, how many young blues piano players can you name? After all, there’s 7 billion people in the world. I say we should “Keep The Blues Alive” even if we do need to learn it from sheet music, and you’ll find the more you play it from sheet music, the more riffs and techniques you will learn and in time you’ll be playing your own cool piano blues.
Sure there’s been plenty of blues piano instruction books written in the past, mostly aimed at the beginner pianist and they can be a big help when you’re starting out, but there’s never been a really good resource for advanced piano players who want to get their teeth into some real professional sounding blues, and I mean complete note for note transcriptions of the best blues piano tunes out there. In the past I spent a lot of money on books but I still struggled to take my blues piano to the next level.
Now you can finally learn to play just like your favourite blues artists, and I mean really impressive sounding blues piano. As well as music from legendary blues artists like Otis Spann, Dr John and James Booker, I’ll be sharing with you some of the best blues piano around today. My aim is to “Keep The Blues Alive” and to make more people aware of the great rising stars in Blues and Boogie Woogie like Chase Garrett, Luca Sestak and Dan Popek. You can get lot’s of awesome piano blues and boogie from these very talented young guns on iTunes and they can all be found on Youtube. Check out our News & Tips page.
In the future I’ll be posting more news, information and links about blues piano, so stay tuned and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, Blues Piano Sheets, for updates and new sheet music.
So while you’re learning to play the blues don’t forget to support these future Blues Legends and together we can “Keep The Blues Alive.”
Greg, Blues Piano Sheets.
