It sounds hard but this guy makes it look easy. Sorry if this is a repeat. This is my first time in this area of the FDP.

This tune brings back memories from my childhood. I know people who don't play guitar but can play Stairway to Heaven. Is it even reasonable to think that a self taught (non music reader) guitar hack could bang out this song on the piano?

And so it is.

Yes, it’s completely reasonable. I’m a musical dunce, have no formal piano training, and yet was still able to play it fairly well after some *serious* practice.

It even inspired me to learn Guaraldi’s “Great Pumpkin Waltz.”

Thanks for the response garp. I may give it a try. Is there such a thing as "TAB" for the piano.

Listen to Gary Hoey's driven guitar version, then try to pick out the notes on piano...

" Is there such a thing as "TAB" for the piano."

Yeah, it's called notation. there's only one place to play each note (unlike guitar). Spend a few days learning your lines and spaces and you'll be on the way.

I play it on guitar by tapping the melody w/right hand on the g string and the bass part w/my left hand

Not too hard to learn, unless you use heavy strings/high action, yet impresses people to an amusing degree

actually you just play within the triad of the chord and the scale. So your hands dont really move all over the place as much as you think they do.
