The Birthday Song – Corrinne May

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

Many people came across my site because of Corrinne May‘s songs. Since I started this site, I happened to know about this talented singer/ composer and blogged about her. Never did I expect after transcribing her On the Side of Me and posted on my blog, I keep on receiving comments and suggestions to come up with her other songs.

Actually, transcribing Corrinne May’s song is relatively difficult. Unlike other songs, Corrinne May’s songs are very sentimental, soft and instrumental. It’s really near to unplugged performance. Therefore I tried my best to produce the utmost original transcription that I can.

This time, the long waited “The Birthday Song” from Corrinne May is finally available. Seems that this is the most anticipated piano sheet after “On the Side of Me”. I know that there are more, and maybe not this one. So many requests, but really, I can only do them one by one…

By the way, any volunteers to help me out?

The piano sheet is designed in 2 sections: The main melody and the piano accompaniment. It’s very useful if you can play and sing at the same time. I’ve added the piano tabs and lyrics as well, again, a very good indicator to follow the music.

A brief summary of this piano sheet:

  1. Piano sheet is in its original key, i.e. G Major
  2. Lyrics and piano chords included
  3. Main melody and piano accompaniment separated

You may find the piano sheet at the end of this post. Do download it and enjoy. This is one of my favourite works, not difficult and yet it sounds very professional.
