Hi, everyone! So I've been playing piano for about 15 years, and part of what I love about Vanessa Carlton is that her piano melodies are so beautiful yet easy to learn. So lately I've been recording a bunch of instrumentals of some of her songs. I'll link to them below in case anyone wants to listen! And if you have a request, let me know and I'll give it a try!

Ordinary Day - over 1,500 views!

White Houses - over 3,500 views!

Who's to Say - over 6,000 views!

Annie - over 1,500 views!

Private Radio

Hands on Me - over 2,500 views!

My Best - probably my favorite; I added guitar, violin, and drums to this one. It's heavily inspired by this live performance.

The One

Heroes and Thieves - over 3,000 views! And watch someone's cover using my instrumental here.

This Time

Fools Like Me - over 1,000 views!

More Than This

Carousel

London

Fairweather Friend - over 1,000 views!

Hear the Bells

Dear California

Tall Tales for Spring

(David Bowie I Love You) Since I Was Six - okay I know it's not a Vanessa song  Tongue but it's closer to her cover than it is to the original!

Nothing Where Something Used to Be

Operator

Willows

Blue Pool - over 1,000 views!

River New!

Matter of Time New!

Hey Smiley

I'd just like to say that I think your covers are absolutely wonderful, they really capture the strong piano lines, and I love the little accents you add into them. My personal favourite of yours is Dear California, it's one of the cleanest and brightest covers I've heard of the song.

If I could ask a favour, I'd be so grateful if you could tell me those notes of the right hand at the very end of the song, where she sings 'Won't you love me as I leave, California...'

I love My Best, I tried a cover with some string arrangements on Who's to Say, so I know that it's so hard to put all the different pieces together, but your cover is simply spectacular Smiley Great work!

Thank you so much! I really appreciate that you took the time to listen to some of my covers.

Regarding Dear California: Those notes are E B G# B, E B G# B, E B E B E B E B (and repeat)

Hope that helps!

Those are gorgeous! I presumed you figure those out by ear but any chance you could put up some sheets for blue pool/even just write out the letters if that's easier? I'm dying to learn it
