Tips for playing Level 3 "For una Cabeza":
This Level 3 arrangement of "Por una Cabeza" plays the melody with the right hand and harmonic accompaniment with the left hand. There are no specific hand positions where you can stay for the whole time like Level 1 and Level 2. A few helpful fingering numbers are suggested for the right hand. The damper pedal is necessary only at the end. Even though it is written for piano solo, you or someone else can sing along. The separate Spanish lyrics page is included in the PDF file. This level of arrangement is high enough that it really starts to resemble the original. You can refer to our free complete audio sample on the top of this page. Enjoy!
