Aspiring piano players can now hone their skills by playing the music of Tupac Shakur, courtesy of The Tupac Shakur Collection, a sheet music song book for piano/vocal/chords that spans his entire career. The release of the sheet music comes on the eve of the eighth anniversary of Shakur, who was gunned down in 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Titles in the book include such hits as “California Love,” “Brenda’s Got A Baby,” “Dear Mama,” “How Do You Want It” and others. In addition to sheet music for 15 of Shakur’s top songs, the 84-page book also includes the lyrics to the late rapper’s songs as well. The collection is also approved by his mother, Afeni Shakur.
This brought to my mind the scenes on "Happy Days" where the Cunninghams got together around the piano for singalongs.
