Powerless by Linkin Park - Interactive Piano Tutorial

Linkin Park / Living Things /


[ Video Preview ]

This song has an interesting feature - verse is made in 7/4 meter. Very asymmetric.

This fits very organically within the song, but takes some time to adjust when you are playing it on piano.

And - the meter is changing in Chorus! Well, luckily, not for 5/3 or something else that Linkin Park could come up with.. :) But for 4/4 - very standard one. And then back to 7/4 for another verse.

Hint: Make a loop on the verse to practice. Once you’ve mastered it, the rest is easy.
