Lesson notes

In this lesson you'll learn Counting Crows' "Holiday In Spain," from Hard Candy (2002). "Holiday In Spain" is a mellow rock ballad in D Major, with a catchy piano- centric hook that precedes each verse-chorus pair. You'll learn the piano accompaniment for each section, including the harmony as well as different rhythmic patterns to use in each hand. Because the tune has a pretty straightforward form, most of your focus will be on the subtle differences between different instances of each section, and on different ways to give your accompaniment some variety.
