    Lennon literally wrote this song in one brief morning on a Steinway piano. He described the genre as a piano ballad in a rock category. Rather than sitting down on a chair contemplating about life, Lennon attempted to declare the freedom of hunger, agony, religion and from politics.

  • Emotional Communication Reflection

    exactly what note to play and how long to hold the note for similar to Guitar Hero. This seemed like it would be very easy to do and learn how to play.
