A free workshop to learn how to finally actually sound like those pro piano singers/songwriters, without ever needing sheets.



The Pop-Piano Method

Hack the Piano is the essential guide & backbone to all my lessons. Get this bible of Pop-Piano, learn to understand the language of music and express yourself just like the pros, without sheets by chords, by ear, by heart.


In this tutorial I’ll show you one of the most-viewed acoustic tracks of John Mayer’s show “where the light is” – his hauntingly beautiful performance of Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’

Hi Guys! How’s it going?

Free Fallin’ is an immensely popular song from John Mayer’s “Where the light is.” A live CD/DVD where John shows himself from three different angles: acoustic singer-songwriter, bluesrock(funk?) trio and fullblown pop-band-artist, all with an equal amount of unreal skill. It is one of my favorite musical registrations of all time and has made John one of the few men able to steal my heart – yet many moons ago.

Here I show how you can copy Free Fallin’ a guitar-only (well, three guitars actually) tune on the piano – something that just never get’s old, does it?

Lastly, this post marked the 100,000 subscriber milestone, for which I would like to express a million thanks to every single one of you that has supported me over the past few years! Unreal. Thank you so much.
