It often happens that piano song covers become more popular than original songs. Why does it happen? Sometimes the sound is more powerful, the arrangements are more interesting, and the manner of performance is more unusual. Of course, not all piano song covers are doomed to success: many of them are destined to remain in oblivion. But, in any case, without trying, you cannot say about the result.
Before you start recording covers, you need to decide on the composition. It is from this step that the result of the work will be successful. There are some ways to choose:
- take a 100% hit with the calculation, the more popular the song, the more people will be interested in its piano song covers;
- choose a composition depending on the taste of the performers and musicians, taking into account the peculiarities of the vocalist’s voice, instrumental part, age.
Both methods are fine. But more often, people choosing the second method to succeed. In this case, as a rule, more challenging work is required.

At that time, there was still no considerable number of those functions that are now laid in modern keyboard electronic instruments, and even more so in music PC programs. Therefore, these functions must be used.
One of these magical functions in piano song covers is “Transpose” (changing the pitch of notes and chords). This feature can facilitate your learning process.
