Hi guys, i've not yet got piano reductions but i've heard samples and i've fallen in love with them :D thing is though, can you get like...tabs for piano? im getting a keyboard for christmas and i really want to try and play some of those songs... i know its just as simple as taking the chords from the song and playing them on keyboard but i feel Mike did alot more than that, so is there anyone out there that has some written manuscript or something ? or maybe just knows the chords etc?

any help would be great:D

I believe a book is being worked on - or is slated for production soon.

I'll keep you updated when I hear more.

Yeah, it would be a lot more complicated than just taking the chords and playing them. Piano is not an easy instrument! :D

Mikey, is it likely to be transcribed by a third party, or will the book be produced from Mike Keneally's/Steve's original scores?

There's no such thing as piano tab, but something most people don't know is that Finale has a product called "Finale NotePad" that you can use to create your own very basic scores of things and share them with your friends.

You can get it online at http://www.finalemusic.com

You can too tab on piano. You can draw a piano but a black dot on which key to play, or you can write which keys to play like this

Key# from right- 22 22 34
67

Is the production of the music book of Piano Reductions vol.1 going on? :roll:
I know it's difficult for me to play,
but I hope to play the tunes on the piano, which is the only one instrument I can play a little. :mrgreen:
I'm waiting it comes out. :)
