This is the sheet music version of Heart & Soul.

Please do not ask me to send you a copy of the sheet music - it was borrowed and returned to a friend. It is currently available from most of the large on-line sheet music stores, like sheetmusicplus.com (the cover is pictured at the end of the video).

Ever wonder what the sheet music version of this song sounded like? So did I, that's why I took the time to learn it.

This is the duet version (written for four hands). This is the original version of sheet music as composed by Hoagy Carmichael in the late 1930s (not a modified/arranged/easy version). Note it is rather different then the common version you've always heard played in scale C.

As an amateur player, I made every attempt to play this accurately - with no changes to the sheet music on my part. I tried to play all embellishments accurately (accents, crescendos, loudness/softness symbols, etc). In the beginning, I had problems getting the tempo/speed consistent. I finally used a Dr. Beat metronome set to 130bpm to get a consistent tempo on the chord pattern - which should be very accurate. I opted not to play the entire piece twice per the "repeat" symbol near the end.

Obviously, I couldn't play all four hands at the same time. The chord pattern was recorded into my digital piano's memory - then the melody was played during the video. The piano is a Yamaha P120.

The sound for this video was recorded directly from the the RCA line output jacks of the piano. Without getting technical, in order to post this with decent stereo sound, a sacrifice in video quality was necessary.

I was not the first to post the sheet music version of Heart & Soul on youtube. That honor goes to a father/son concert video.
