This week we start the study of Percy Mayfields, "Please Send Me Someone To Love", written in 1950.
For this version of the song we are learning it with a bluesy semi-gospel feel and a hint of gutt-bucket blues thrown in for those of us that love that style. :-)
If you started from the beginning of my lessons here on Sonic Junction, your left hand should be gaining strength by now. Many songs that I have chosen to teach and play here on this site are repetitive in the nature of the left and right hand movements, but are different in the styles in which they are being played. For example, once you have mastered the very first lesson, "High Heel Sneakers" (left hand) this lesson, and moving forward becomes so much easier.
Again, turn that metronome on and get to play don't forget to think left hand, left hand, and finally left hand again!
