Easy Piano Cover
"Up Where We Belong" is a song recorded by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes for the 1982 film An Officer and a Gentleman. The song was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US and sold more than one million copies.
My goal is to always create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play.
I learned "Up Where We Belong" by Jennifer Warnes and Joe Cocker from a lead sheet, which is sheet music that just shows the right-hand melody and chord symbols. (see sample below)
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.
