Faded
Alan Walker

Easy Piano Cover


"Faded" is a song written by record producer and DJ, Alan Walker and was released in December 2015. Iselin Solheim provided the lead vocals for the song which peaked in the Top 10 in most countries where it was charted. I was the 13th most viewed music video as of July 2021 with over 3 billions views on YouTube.


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

I learned "Faded" by Alan Walker and Iselin Solheim 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 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.
