    The left hand in the sheet music is a heavily-simplified version of how Joel played it. But that gives you the opportunity to create your own version of this piece. How difficult it is obviously depends on your skill, but I think with the modified left hand, and if...

    played accurately in full tempo, I'd give it a 4 or 5 on a scale of 1 to 6 (6 being very difficult like Liszt Rhapsodies or something similar).

    Nice copy, and clear format. Key of C major, ragtime style, lots of repeats.

  • July 15, 2008 Great sheet, but some corners were cut

    Overall, a very helpful aid to learning the song. It looks hard when you first open it, but it's repetative, and once you have the timing, its fairly straightforward. A fun song to play, and sounds very impressive. My one complaint is the usual story--simplifying the music. The...

    bass line leaves a lot to be desired, and even some of the subtle details that makes Billy's playing great are absent. You have to go to a recording and try to figure out the additions. I wish all sheets were like the keyboard series of transcripts. But overall, very good.
