Boogie-Woogie Piano Licks Inspired By Barry Manilow (Video)

I like Barry Manilow.

There, I said it.

I’m a grown man with a beautiful wife and 4 growing children, and I’m a professional piano player.

And I like Barry Manilow.

I can still remember listening to an 8-track tape of his Greatest Hits and playing his songs on the piano as a teenager… watching his numerous TV specials and variety show appearances.

I mean, c’mon. The guy is arguably one of the greatest songwriters of the last 50 years.

He actually sang, “I Write the Songs”!

He also wrote the famous McDonald’s jingle, “You deserve a break today,” the “Stuck on Band-Aid” jingle, AND the “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there” jingle, which is still used today!

These days, I still get requests for “Copacabana,” and every now and then I’ll play “Weekend in New England,” which usually gets everyone reminiscing and singing along 🙂

But I digress…

I promised you some boogie woogie piano licks, so that’s what I’m gonna deliver!

One of Barry’s lesser-known tunes is called, “Jump Shout Boogie,” and I always enjoyed playing it on the piano – mainly because it uses some very simple right and left hand piano licks that sound really fancy.

I’m guessing Barry Manilow isn’t a name that comes to mine when you hear the words “boogie woogie piano,” but this tune really cooks, in my opinion.

That’s why I decided to make this ANOTHER free bonus video lesson to go along with my Boogie Woogie Piano… FAST! online/DVD video piano course. Click Here For Details

And now, Barry Manilow’s boogie woogie piano licks… enjoy!
