I play the piece in my head and follow along, while at the same time listening to my playing and following along the sound coming from my own hands. If they both fit together, I know my timing is right.

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

I'm glad I could help. And yes, you do need to actually "read" the book, in addition to playing it; that's how you'll pick up the subtle explanations and details that are sometimes provided at the end of some songs.
