John Lennon’s Imagine is a song with piano accompaniment in the key of C major. These days, you can play a well-tuned piano to his official video on youtube, as we did in class to any number of versions I arranged for the different levels of my adult piano students. In all versions, both hands are to play one octave lower than what’s written.

Slightly more difficult is the following version because I left out the fingerings and the right hand has to do a little more work than before.
To imitate the authentic piano arrangement, we need repetitive broken chords in eighth notes, on the right hand.
Finally, for those whose left hands are powerful enough to play octaves, here’s another version.
UPDATE @ 8th April 2018
Imagine is one of 23 songs we will be playing and singing on Wednesday 11th April 2018 in our thematic ukulele jam session in Historic Lower Mills — the theme is “Easy Beatles.”
