Difficulty Level: Intermediate Genre: Classic Rock, Soul

Ray Charles is a true musical genius, in an era where the word “genius” in used a little too freely. Blind from the age of seven, Charles first learned piano from a neighbor, then studied music at the State School for Deaf and Blind Children in St. Augustine, FL. After moving to Seattle, he soon began making an impression that soon went worldwide. “Hit The Road Jack” was a number one hit in 1961.
