"She's Got a Way" is a song by singer/songwriter Billy Joel. The song was first released in 1971 from his first studio album, Cold Spring Harbor.

Joel also released it as a single in 1981 from his live album, Songs in the Attic, where it reached #23 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1982. The live performance was held at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, Massachusetts.

My goal is always, to create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play. I learned "She's Got A Way" by Billy Joel 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 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.
