I’ll Stand by You (piano & vocal)

I’ll Stand by You

Teresa Young arranged Chrissie Hynde’s beautiful pop rock ballad I’ll Stand by You for a vocalist just beginning to accompany herself at the piano. The piano part doesn’t double the vocal melody, which takes more vocal finesse than singing with the melody. But it does ground the vocal with melodic cues at important transitions. The piano part includes instructional fingerings too. Teresa’s arrangement is available in both The Pretenders’ key of C and in the key of A for lower female voices.

If you’re an artist, you need to work.
It doesn’t matter how old you are,
who you are. It doesn’t matter
if you’re 12: if you draw, you draw.
If you’re 85 and you paint, you paint.

—Chrissie Hynde
