Like learning to play the guitar, playing the piano is also one of the most sought after skills. A good thing about learning to play the piano is that you can get the basics of playing the guitar as well, owing to the relative chords. If you want to learn to play the piano, you need to get some piano lessons regarding black and white notes, octaves, pitches, etc. One good piano lesson for beginners is to learn to play scales and individual notes. Note that the left hand plays bass notes and chords, and the right hand is for lead notes. Therefore, playing piano songs on the lead octaves will really help you in mastering your leads.
