Lady Gaga

Easy Piano Cover

"Shallow" is a song written by Lady Gaga, Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson. It was performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper and released on September 27, 2018 as a single from the film, A Star Is Born.

The song topped the charts in more than twenty countries and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song -- and as of April 2022, it's the 23rd most streamed song on Spotify.

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

I learned Shallow by Lady Gaga 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.
