Not what I expected based on page 1!

The first page is well written. It appears as though the entire song will have a very good piano arrangement. Unfortunately ALL of the "actual" piano part gets dropped when the vocal part begins. In other words, the first page is accurately written for piano. The rest of the song (which you cant see in preview) has the piano playing the vocal line and very little of Bruce Hornsbys piano part from the recording.

The Way It Is

Such a cool song, but pretty difficult. What I've been able to play has sounded very cool. Once I've got the whole thing learned I'm sure it will be way worth the effort!
