Play Clocks by Coldplay on the piano in 3 easy steps

PLEASE NOTE: This guide is intended for beginners only. It is not intended for experienced piano players and those who can read music.

If you can read music already, you might prefer to get the sheet music for Coldplay

This guide will teach you how to play the main theme which runs throughout the song 'Clocks' by Coldplay, in three easy steps.

Step One

Ok, so step one is probably the most difficult - although, having said that it's still incredibly easy.

Visit this link to learn which note is which on the piano. That's step one done - and if you already knew which note was which... even better!

Step Two

This step is easy - but you have to make sure the piano you're using is yours!

Why? Because now, as an aid to remembering which key is which on the piano keyboard, it is a good idea to use the information you learned by visiting the link above, and sticking the name of each note to each key.

Perhaps when you are a natural at playing Clocks by Coldplay on the piano, you won't need them - but until that time, it will help.

Step Three

Ok, now for the bit you've been waiting for - actually playing it.

So all you do, is using the stickers to tell you which note is which, play the following notes in the following order:

G D B G D B G D F D A F D A F D F D A F D A F D E C A E C A C E

And that's it - the main theme for Clocks by Coldplay on the piano!
