OK... I forgive him for both "Candles in the Wind" and "That's Why They call it the Blues". What an amazing musician...what timing...

Thanks for that Agathis. By the way: cool handle. Where does "Agathis" come from?

You know for anyone remotely into Eltons music (or a complete basketcase fan like me), that site is a must visit.

http://eltonscafe.com/

Correct me if im talking about the wrong site.



[Edit] You wouldn't believe it but I was listening to the midi of that just this morning!

yeah, thats where the mp3 came from. glad to see another elton basketcase on here. i've learned a couple of Glenns transcriptions, they are great!i am trying to figure out which songs off of the new album to start learning. curious which one you will undertake as a pianist/singer from new record if any. (i put on host site because I'm not sure how keen people with sites are to hotlinking directly to songs on their sites...) i've learned most of this one but haven't delved into the In the Mood section yet. Needless to say, some of the rhythms took me a while but are neat when under your fingers.

Oh, do you think I should remove the link?

Um as for me I don't have the talent to play any authentic Elton John songs yet and simple arrangements dont interest me one bit. I bought the Elton John keyboard book and might look at some of those in the future when I get better.

The reason the site interests me so much is that it deconstructs Eltons playing of most of the pieces, and the mp3 and midi downloads are great fun to listen to.

Oh and I've got tickets to see him in concert (the Captain and the Kid tour) next month in Melbourne. I can't wait! :3hearts:
