Syncopation, syncopation... one more syncopation. This song has a lot of them. Syncopation is a very nice technique of making song "rolling" nicely, smoothing edges of measure beats. It is also an excellent exercise for hands, as they become more "independent" of each other. (BTW - blind printing on the computer keyboard require similar skills, so it is helpful in many aspects!)

Note - we moved it down 1/2 tone from the original key (to make it easier to play), but you are welcome to get it back from within the tutorial. Great melody and really nice song by Keane. Enjoy!

Piano Tip of the Day
Do you know what is the difference between transposition and modulation? Here is the answer - transposition is changing the key for the entire song , modulation means the key is changed inside the song. All our tutorials can be transposed to a different key.
