I play guitar, my wife, the piano. We try to play together but are having trouble finding music for the piano. Anyone know of a site that is simular to the many guitar sites where one can get the words and chord for a song but for piano..?

Thanks.

Well, I've seen sites with piano TAB, but it's not sheet music. Piano tab basically tells you what notes to play in what octave: however it is tricky to read at first and it usaully has no rhythm indications but it is better than no music at all.

Http://www.taborama.com has a fair selection of piano/keyboard tabs.

There are MANY sites with piano sheet music but it does cost money.

if you're desperate, you can find some of the more poppy sheet music when searching on limewire or some similar program...

Try http://www.scotthouston.com/ and get his fake book. You have to know your cords because he charts the cords for the keyboard. My wife and I have been using his material with good results.

songs with a piano part, in powertab, are transcribed as a guitar, so if you get powertab software, then find the tab, a piano part (should be) transcribed there, it has tab and sheet music above it so your wife will be able to read it..

Huh? I'm missing something. Just about every song ever written can be bought for piano, with lyrics and guitar chords. The catalogs are thicker than a NYC phone book.

Unless you were looking for free, and then the problem is that it's so cheap to buy ($1/song), and there is plenty of availability, that it's not worth anyone's time to transcribe it.

TAB really/probably started because the piano books didn't transcribe the guitar solos.
