Relaxing Easy Piano Cover

"Blinding Lights" is a song by the Weeknd, from his 4th studio album titled, After Hours. It was released in November 2019 and reached #1 on the Canadian Hot 100, becoming his 5th #1 hit.

The song was in the Top 40 in the US on the Hot 100 chart. It was ranked as the number one Greatest Hot 100 Hit of All Time by Billboard on November 23, 2021.

My goal is to always create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play.

I learned "Blinding Lights" by The Weeknd from a lead sheet, which is sheet music that just shows the right-hand melody and chord symbols. (see example below)

I improvised the left hand part by using blocked and broken chords, and I played a simple, single-note melody line with my right hand.

Before I knew any chords, it would take me weeks to learn a new song. After I started learning chords, I could learn a new song in less than an hour. I was able to do this because I no longer had to read the music notes for the left hand.

  • Knowing chords allows me to create my own piano arrangements. Now all I read is the right hand melody on the treble clef.
