For this series, I will be posting a new song every week from every imaginable style and genre. The only criteria is that I need to like it!
This week’s #RandomSongsILike is my version of the Foo Fighters “Best of You”. I have loved this song for years and it was high time I sat down and worked out an arrangement. I use a hemiola pattern throughout and made sure to knock out Taylor Hawkin’s kickin’ hits at the end of the guitar solo. Fun!!
PS – Can you take a quick minute and subscribe to my Youtube channel? It helps get more eyeballs on my work!

How I create my piano arrangements
Sometimes I try to recreate the original recordings, like I do in this one. It requires that I take the time to figure out the chords (I usually just do this by ear). Once I have the chords done, I take some time to figure out the bass line and the hook. After that, it’s time to work out with the metronome to make sure I can really kick the groove right.
