    can i get the piano notes pleaseee

    • amitsn

      Hey ohm. I am not very advanced in piano. Plus posting notes would take a lot of time. Just play the chords I’ve posted and try to play the song. It is not that hard, trust me :)

      • ohm

        thank you for the reply :)

        I don’t play guitar, moreover,am just a beginner in piano !

        if i am not wrong, isn’t it possible to convert these guitar notes to its octave note form directly??

        • amitsn

          You can check online how to hold the chords (which I’ve posted above) in piano and you can sing along with it. Or, using your left hand, hold the chords and then try to play the lead (actual song tune) using right hand (which you’ll have to figure out yourself). This will take some time to master though.
