Hi all, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "Piano Man", as made famous by Billy Joel. This is a classic track that we'll learn on acoustic guitar campfire style, adapted from the piano. Any acoustic guitar is suitable for this tutorial.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about dynamics, piano style chords, and a steady strumming pattern.

We are in the key of C, a 3/4 time signature, at a tempo of 174 bpm.
