    I always wanted to learn how to play jazz so I thought fuck it and went out and bought a piano. Considering I have 0 music experience I am somehow able to just hum a little tune in my head and then play it. I've been creating various licks for the last few hours and I love it!

    I don't have time nor I can be bothered with the traditional school so I found a few instructional videos and just learned what the person was playing. Does anyone know where I can find more video of people simply showing how to play various jazzy riffs and licks I can copy?

    Spank you merry touch!

    No, I'm not kidding and I've used Google believe it or not. You would never guess but it is even set as my homepage. It's like searching for a credit card. Everyone wants to sell you their shit with their fake reviews or bias articles. The reason why I started this thread is in case there are some piano players here who can point me the right way.

    Why not just learn standard notation and then look up sheet music for songs you want to play? Standard notation is pretty simple. Also, Youtube has a shit ton of piano tutorials and such.
