UPDATE 2022: Check out the video tutorial on how to play this song. Check out my YouTube channel for other similar tutorials.
Now that I’m getting a hang of using this transcribing software, I thought I’d try out another favorite Death Cab song that’s fun to play on the piano. This is basically just the intro part, but just enough to at least get the gist of the song. This song is fairly easy and can be learned in just a few minutes. I’ve also been working on finishing Transatlanticism, which is taking a bit longer, after all it’s a 7 minute song. I’ve got the first 4 minutes or so done, with the exception of all the little nuances, and if you’re keen on the piano, once you get the basic chords down, you’ll pretty much be able to play the last 3 minutes of the song. Anyway, here’s What Sarah Said off of Plans. And as a side note, I have no idea if anyone else has these songs already written up somewhere else on this vast Internet. I learned how to play these two DCFC songs (along with a few other other songs I’ve figured out over the years) without the use of any other medium, just a CD player and piano and a lot of time and patience. That having been said, these transcriptions are not note-for-note, but as close as my ear can hear it. And hopefully good enough for anyone else wanting to impress their girlfriend when they bust out their musical talent and play some sweet Death Cab.
