The Beatles

Relaxing Piano Cover

"Something" is a song by the Beatles. It was written by George Harrison, the band's lead guitarist. It was one of two songs that Harrison contributed to the 1969 album titled, Abbey Road.

Just two weeks after Abbey Road was released, the song was issued on a double A-side single. It was paired with "Come Together", making it the first song by Harrison to make it to a Beatle's A-side.

My goal, as always, is to create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play. I learned "Something"by The Beatles 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 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.
