Clocks: Coldplay

Clocks

 Former piano students were always requesting the song "Clocks."
They really wanted to learn it and as quickly as possible.
If you do a Google search, you will find beginner and advanced music.

Clocks by Coldplay

I had located a really cool video tutorial on YouTube awhile back.
So, I did a post on the popular song, here.
