Hi Jonathon,

That was an interesting site, although, like you mentioned it is a paid
service, and the videos are informative, but time consuming. Ideally I would
like some music that I could read easily without needing to watch the video.
This is especially good for when you forget a small portion of the song, and
you can go through a text file quickly to find the part you forgot, instead
of going through a video.

I'm still looking for a way to get sheet music that I could actually read.

All the best,

Try HDPiano.  Unfortunately, they are a paid service, but they have some
videos free on YouTube.  You can sift through them by searching HDPiano on
YouTube, and looking through their channel.  They describe how to play songs
very well in my experience.
