Elton John, "Lion King”
Transcription and Fingering: Renato Bellucci
This is a tremendously beautiful and majestic song by one of all time most inspired British composers: Sir Elton John. The piece requires a good understanding of the use of "levers & pivots" in order to be performed flawlessly. Levers & Pivots allow the left hand to move more precisely because they optimize the movements of the left hand and help choose the best set of muscles and tendons for each fingering scenario. Typically, there is always a point of contact between the left hand and the fingerboard. This point of contact is usually either a pivot or a lever. The hand is in its most unstable and prone to error when no left hand finger is in contact with the fingerboard. Can You Feel the Love Tonight is a great tune to add to your list of movie soundtracks, one that will gain you some very well deserved cheers from the audience.
