Pretty sure those LH chords are more than one note.

Pretty sure those LH chords are more than one note.

It does sound bare, but I didn't add any other notes to avoid muddiness, otherwise I'd und up with voicings that are impossible to play with just left hand. I also tried adding chords in underneath the melody in the right hand but it didn't add enough sonically to make a difference. Any ideas?

Thoughts on transforming this to a duet arrangement?

I wouldn't advise dropping the solo. At its heart the song is really catchy and simple; it would make for a great piece for a beginner to learn, or for anyone with at least a little experience to sight-read.

If you do decide to go the duet route, there isn't really much for one hand to do aside from tap percussion, which should make for a fine performance...

But anyways, for a solo, I think it would be best to find some middle ground between the low bass and the chords. The song repeats C, F, and G chords to eternity so I would just select inversions of those you like and place them somewhere in the high bass clef range to prevent it from sounding too bottom-heavy or empty.

Something like this, perhaps:



It doesn't keep the bassline intact, but it does lead to a more natural progression of chords (which I feel is the focus of the accompaniment anyway) - jumping to an F chord with A on the bottom would be a bit of a leap coming from the previous one. Play with it and see what you like.

Just popping in quick to say that I'm in favor of keeping it a solo. It's a fun song.

Agreed for the solo. Imo it's better to stretch it for a solo than go for a duet. Yeah, you might get more notes in, but it's much harder for the performer to find someone else to play it with.

Thanks everyone. Definitely keeping it as a solo.

Latios, I went with your voice leading idea which sounds fine and doesn't distort the progression even though the bass notes are different. Much more seamless than I expected. Thanks for that.

On page two I did larger voicings (which do reach up to 10ths but my hands can play them without rolling, plus they're all white keys which makes it more doable)

Sounds way fuller now!
