Easy Piano Cover

"Clocks" is a song written by the members of the British rock band Coldplay for their second album titled, A Rush of Blood to the Head, and was released on March 17, 2003.

The song reached #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US and #9 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. It's also ranked 490 on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

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

I learned "Clocks" by Coldplay 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 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 on the bass clef.

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