"Alfie" - Burt Bacarach

Learn Burt Bacarach’s beautiful song Alfie. In this lesson, I will break down the piano arrangement note-for-note. We will only be learning the song in the lesson, no improvisation. 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.
