You Don’t Know Me
Learn how to play You Don’t Know Me by Ray Charles on the piano! Follow along with your teacher Devon in the best tutorial online.
In this lesson, Devon walks through a rather obscure live version of this song that features the piano more prominently than the original recording. If you’re a fan of “The Genius Of Soul” then you’re bound to walk away from this lesson with some new tricks up your sleeve. You Don’t Know Me is a bluesy songbook style piece with an AABA form, meaning there are two ‘A Sections’ followed by a bridge and a final ‘A Section.’ In this case, after one cycle of AABA, Ray Charles jumps back to the bridge and closes it out with the final A section and ending.
