So anyway, this beautiful song has been in my head recently and I thought I would work out an intermediate piano arrangement of it for you all. I hope you enjoy it. The arrangement has some classic solo piano techniques that work great for ballads. The left hand is mostly arpeggiating roots, 3rds, 5ths, and 7ths while the top of the right hand covers the melody and the some chord tones and tensions below it. I stuck with mostly the original harmony on this one, aside from a few tritone substitutions in measure 6 of the A section (or subV7s as we like to call them at Berklee!). There's also some interesting chord tensions -- check out the b9 on the Bb7 and the #11 on the D7 in the A section. In the bridge check out the 9 on the G-7 and the 9, #11, 13 on the C7 in the bridge.
When your practicing this one, really try to bring out the melody and let the chords and bass sit underneath it in volume. Be as expressive as you can with dynamics, it makes all the difference!
