"The Scientist" is a song that is awesome to learn on the piano for a couple of reasons.
It sounds really cool (it's a beautiful song), and it's SUPER EASY to learn!
There are really only four chords in the whole song (surprise surprise). And the main theme really only has three!
Dm7 (in 3rd inversion - which just means that the 7th is at the bottom!)
Bb (in 1st inversion)
F (in 2nd inversion - which is basically the same chord as the Dm7 - just without the D!)
And then we have an Fsus2.
To play this we just need to substitute the A on the top of the chord for a G. So the notes are C-F-G.
And that's pretty much it! In this lesson, we are going to be playing quarter notes for the right AND left hand.
BUT - in the Coldplay recording the left-hand plays eighth notes. So you could just play the root note OR and octave in the left hand.
Here are the timecodes for the lesson:
- The chords we'll use - 0:26
- It was a squeaky chair! (I'm sorry) - 0:29
- The fancy moment between the Bb and F chords - 1:52
- How to play the melody - 2:35
- "Nobody Said It Was Easy" - 3:27
If you're newer to chording this is a great way to learn and practice some inversions and sus chords while sounding really good!
