Learn Nine Hit Songs of the Beach Boys!
Play the piano and sing along with some of the greatest pop songs of all time!
After more than twenty years of touring as keyboardist for the Beach Boys, the late Billy Hinsche learned the ins and outs of their music as well as anyone. On this fascinating lesson, he teaches the ingenious chord structures, ear-catching melodies and ground breaking "hooks" that have made them one of the most successful rock groups of all time.
With insight, humor and an "insider's" perspective, Billy examines nine of the Beach Boys' best-known tunes, breaking each one down for learning players at all levels. His analysis of their use of unusual progressions, rhythms, key changes, bass lines, arpeggios and other musical innovations shows why the Beach Boys' music has become an integral part of America's pop music tradition.
Pianists at all levels will have fun singing and playing along with these classic rock songs: California Girls, Kokomo, In My Room, Little Deuce Coupe, Help Me Rhonda, Wouldn't It Be Nice, God Only Knows, Good Vibrations and Forever.
