Randy Newman 'She Chose Me' - Piano Tutorial
 
Hello! I'm on my way home from a fantastic weekend at Woodyfest, celebrating the life and genius of the original troubadour, Woody Guthrie. So much fun sharing songs and stories with some of my favorite artists anywhere - John Fullbright, Sam Baker, Abbie Gardner, Sally and George, even Jason Mraz was there

Flying home now to get back into a bunch of film stuff - I'm about to start editing the second episode of Morse Code - and, well, I just got cast as a lead in my first feature Film, a dystopian picture called Land of Tomorrow. Shooting starts in a few weeks, in Kentucky. I play the bad guy.

Ok so a few months ago I posted a video on YouTube for my 'Happy Birthday Hero' series of 'She Chose Me', a song from Randy Newman's latest album Dark Matter. Several people commented on the video, asking for a tutorial. I do like being helpful, so this week I set up a few cameras and broke it down.

And here's the original song for reference, filmed in one take on my front porch. watch
