adfa,

 

The reason that it is hard to find the sheetmusic for these songs is that any relatively new (70 years or so) music is copyrighted - and the copyright owners do not take kindly to having their works posted and made available for download.

 

Having said that, there are a number of legitimate web sites that sell slectronic copies of sheetmusic, such as www.sheetmusicusa.com

 

Even chord charts or lead sheets fall into the same situation. By searching, you may find chord charts that someone has made based on their listening to a song - but they suffer from two problems - one being copies of a copyrighted work, the other being the quality of the chord chart itself.

 

Older music that is in the public domain is much more available. For instance, most of the works of Back are available. There is even a caveat here - a publisher can copyright their own written presentation of a composer's work, even if the composer's work itself is in the public domain.

 

To further complicate things, the length of copyright and various laws (such as legal remedies, penalties, etc.) are different in different countries.

 

I have not personally checked for it, but the song "Yesterday" as rendered by the Beatles has definitely been published in the past (at least in books containing a collection). BTW - it has been my personal experience that published copies give the very most basic melodic structure of the song, but playing them as written does not usually sound anywhere close to the artist's performance. So for that reason, building up your ability to listen to a piece of music, analyze it, and come up with your own rendition is still important.

then, what is your point you want to make? are you looking down at me because I'm not good as you?everyone must learn to walk before know how to run...

 

adfa, you were already given excellent advice - get a teacher.

 

And when you start a new thread make the subject specific so everyone does not waste their time reading something they would not otherwise respond to.

No guitarists were harmed during the making of this message.

 

In general, harmonic complexity is inversely proportional to the ratio between chording and non-chording instruments.

Have you tried Youtube? Often if you type how to play ______ by ____ someone has posted a vid that can be helpful. Not always but a good place to look.

Picky picky picky. adfa's original question was "can anyone tell me the sites that provides free keyboard notes?" The request is for free "notes". The "notes" are free.

Here you go! You don't even need too know how to read scores. Though I don't think I am smart enough to follow the notation system used in this video. I would rather have a standard grand staff myself.

personally I feel it is really hard to find keyboards notes on the internet rather than piano notes...

What's the difference? :confused:

 

I'm not sure I've ever seen sheet music for "keyboard' that wasn't essentially piano...?

 

Also, sheet music is cheap. You can buy individual pieces for only a few dollars - they sell them for download at www.musicnotes.com - so it's not really essential to have to go find some you can get for free.

 

Music Notes even has some free sheet music here.

thanks stanC..anyone else wants to share with me useful websites that I can get free notes or access for keyboard? personally I feel it is really hard to find keyboards notes on the internet rather than piano notes...

You're welcome. But I'm not sure what you mean by keyboard notes versus piano notes? BTW is English your first language? That may explain alot. . .
