Great rock n'roll piano primer

Lots of great RH licks and LH bass lines. The differences between R&R and boogie woogie style are explained, something which was new to me. In a nutshell, if you want to get up to speed on at least knowing what to play, the video is great. That said, it's very hard to play what's demo'ed because of the speed required so be prepared to practice. A lot. It's an old video so the viewing quality is far from HD but it works well enough. The only real annoyance is once in a while, the overhead camera doesn't capture what it is being played high up on the keyboard because it's zoomed in on the center section.

A virtual keyboard and some note displays would be helpful for people that are more visual than aural learning oriented.
