In My Life
The Beatles

Easy Piano Cover

"In My Life" is a song written by the Beatles and released in 1965 from their album Rubber Soul. It's ranked 98 on Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time", and 5th on its list of the Beatles' "100 Greatest Songs".

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

I learned In My Life by the Beatles from a lead sheet, which is sheet music that just shows the right-hand melody notes 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.
