"Ain't No Mountain High Enough"

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”: In this lesson, you will learn the keyboard part that was played on the classic recording “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. This is not a solo piano arrangement of the song but rather a transcription of what was actually played in the studio by the keyboard player on the recording. You will learn this song in parts, breaking the music into 4-8 measure sections making it easy to learn and easy to memorize. So purchase this famous track, put your headphones on, and get ready to play along as a member of the band as you add this great tune to your repertoire!

There will also be little explanation of how the arrangement was created. The goal is to just learn the song note for note. The skill level needed in order to play Alfie would be intermediate to professional level. It’s pretty intense with a lot of notes in it.
