Lesson notes

In this lesson, we’re going to learn the song “Happy,” by Pharrell Williams, from the “Despicable Me” soundtrack, released in 2013, and also from his 2014 album, “Girl.” “Happy” is an upbeat, danceable funk/soul tune with an infectious hook. The song received a 2014 Oscar nomination for best song, and also has its own website, 24hoursofhappy.com, with the world’s first 24- hour music video. In this lesson, we are going to learn a complete arrangement of the entire tune, combining elements of the electric piano part, the drums, the bass part, the vocal lead and the background vocals. So I hope you check out this lesson over at totallykeyboards.com. I’ll see you there.
