It sure is nice that they don't tell you at amazon.com that the much needed CD for Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Book 1 is NOT included...

I don't suppose anyone would be willing to rip and upload their cd?

Thanks. This is so frustrating!

Heather, if all you want the CD for is to see if you are playing correctly, you can find all the songs played better than the CD on

However, if you want it so you can use it as an accompanyment and play along, you can purchase the CD separately from SheetMusicPlus.com. Possibly from Amazon also.

I gotta warn you that the quality of the CD is somewhat lacking. It doesn't sound like a piano, but rather like a tinny toy keyboard with other toy instruments backing it up. I have the CD, and only use it if I'm stuck on one of the couple of songs that are not on PianoNoob's youtube series. He goes from the first lesson all the way through book 2.

Thank you! The YouTube videos will be fine. I just don't know how all the pieces are supposed to sound. Makes it hard to know if you're doing it right if you don't know how it's supposed to sound.
