Hi folks,

I am in a desperate need of this tune in MIDI (preferably so I can load it up into my digital piano) or any other format.

I've listened to quite a few versions, but none of them has enough or any piano at all. I've tried Roberta Flack and Fugees. Apparently there's one out there where R. Flack sings with a piano accomp. Any idea?

If anybody knows web link I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

Marek

Try this one - I fixed the link......

I found the right file, but didn't preview the link before posting. Thanks, Bob!

You can't direct-link to a file on that site, but here's a link to the page that includes that song:

I have a beutifull version of that song (sheet music). I've even thought of playing it for the recital. It is more an intermediate level piece but I play it by lopping off a bunch of the more difficult chords and improvising on the easier single notes.

I can play it and record it for you if you like, or I can see if I can somehow let you "borrow" the score.

BTW, it is the Roberta Flack score, NOT the sampled fugees!

MSH,

that would be great if you could "somehow" (I like that ... :-) ) let me borrow your sheet music and record yourself playing it. BTW what key is your music sheet written in?

KAM,
I will listen at home to your rendition. Thanks a lot for now.

Marek

Thanks
