The lesson video and playthru cover Sarah McLachlan’s arrangement of Joni’s River. The reason for this is that her’s is a guitar-based arrangement so it’s more natural under the fingers than an arrangement of Joni’s piano part.
However, I’ve also arranged Joni’s piano part and tabbed it out and that tab is included as a bonus for those that want to try it. It’s certainly playable.
