Lesson Info

In this series of lessons, Doug Showalter will teach "Just the Way You Are", by Billy Joel. After an overview of the song and a peek at the acoustic tones, we'll break down the main motif of the tune. The A section is up next - done in two different rhythm styles - followed by the B section, which is also presented in two styles. We'll detail the C section, then the outro, before we do a play along performance and a jam along.
