Eternal Flame
The Bangles

Easy Piano Cover

"Eternal Flame" was written by Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles and released on their 3rd studio album titled, Everything.

Hoffs teamed up with Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly, who were considered very seasoned songwriters. Upon its release, the song become a #1 hit in nine countries.

My goal, as always, is to create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play. I learned "Eternal Flame" by The Bangles from a lead sheet, which is sheet music that just shows the right-hand melody and chord symbols.

I improvised the left hand part by using blocked and broken chords, 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.
