Evanescence – Hello (piano arrangement)

Hello, everybody!

This week’s video is a solo piano arrangement of Hello from Evanescence’s first album, Fallen. It’s one of my favourite songs of theirs – it’s simple overall, being just piano, one voice and a cello solo, but is interesting enough that it doesn’t get boring. I transcribed just the piano part of this years ago, but decided recently to include the vocal and cello parts on the piano.

It’s emotionally very heavy and I tried to capture that with my arrangement. I didn’t want to harmonise or double the vocal part, as it’s a very personal song for Amy Lee, the writer, and the original has only one vocal track. I found that the song is so well arranged in it’s original form, that this piano solo version practically arranged itself! Let me know what you think of it!
