Learn how to play Arthur’s Theme by Christopher Cross on the piano! Follow along with your teacher Devon in the best tutorial online.
Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do) was written by Christopher Cross, Burt Bacharach and others for the 1981 movie Arthur starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli. Once released, this song sat at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks. In this lesson you have some options – either sit with the chords and shapes and come up with your own suitable accompaniment pattern or learn it nearly exactly as it was played on the record. At first glance this might look like a tough one to learn, but if you spend some time with this lesson you’ll find that not only are there really only two four measure progressions that loop, but a lot of the material is very pattern based and repetitive. Whether you want to just learn the basics or recreate the piano part as it was recorded, you’re in the right place 🙂 Enjoy!
