Learn to Play Pink Panther

Pink Panther

It seems everyone wants to play The Pink Panther! Written in 1964 by Henry Mancini, it remains an all-time great! It should be played moderately slow and mysterious with a swing rhythm. I couldn't find a free piano chord chart online but here are a few resources that may help. I will add my own chords on this post in hopes that it will be somewhat helpful to you.

If you read sheet music, here are a few riffs from the song.

Or if your familiar with finger style on the guitar, here is the guitar tab.
