This song is in 3/4. That means that there are 3 beats in every measure, and that a quarter note gets one beat. So, you can fit 3 quarter notes into a single measure, like the right hand in measure 22. Or, you can fit 6 eighth notes into a single measure, like the right hand in measure 3.

To learn the right hand part of the introduction, use your thumb to play E, F, and G, and use your 4th finger (ring finger) to play all of the C’s. The rest of the right hand introduction will fall into place if you concentrate on your thumb for E, F, G, and your 4th finger for all of the C’s.

The rest of the song isn’t too difficult. Use the sustain pedal throughout. In general, you’ll want to reset it every measure. The section starting at measure 74 is the peak of the song, so play this part louder and then bring it down for the outro at measure 90.
