The Scientist’s verses and chorus are not longer than we expect from rock songs. Also, the verse tunes are repeated every two lines. So, it shouldn’t take you long to figure out the whole song.

Tips: Despite the repeated tune, learn the lyrics and notes of every line. Even when the notes sound the same, the timing is always a little different.

Difficulty: It’s an easy song to learn, even for beginners. First, learn the place of each key on the piano. After that, you’re good to go.
