Bill Withers wrote some of the best-loved songs of the past fifty years. He was a prolific writer who featured the piano a lot in his works. Some of his most famous songs include Lean on Me, Just the Two of Us, Lovely Day and the song that we are talking about today, Ain’t No Sunshine. Below you will find both the Sheet Music for piano and a Chords chart so everyone should be pretty much covered. However, before we get in to actually playing this song on the piano, lets look a bit more closely at the music itself.
Wither was born in 1938 and started making his first recording in the early 1970s. He signed with Columbia Records in 1975 and released an album per year with them for three years. Funnily enough, only Lean on Me out of all of the great songs the Bill wrote actually achieved number 1 status in both the US and UK. I was really surprised to read that fact as I automatically expected every one of his tunes to have been worldwide best sellers.
Ain’t No Sunshine was released in 1971 and reached number 6 in the Billboard Charts. The songs has since been used in many movies including the worldwide hit, Notting Hill. It is a fairly straight forward piece to play on the piano. It centres around the chords Am and Em so as long as you know those chords then you should be OK. We really hope that you enjoy playing this song as much as we do.
