    I am going into my 3rd year of piano lessons as of January 2009. I started late in life at middle age. This song is a little challenging for me as far as getting the left hand timing correct but with that said it has been fun to learn and...

    not extremely difficult. I love the music played at weddings therefore I want to learn as many in the future as I can.
