With this sheet music, you can play "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton on piano!

It's an accurate, carefully created piano arrangement of the beautiful ballad.

The whole melody is included in the piano part, so it makes for a perfect instrumental / piano solo cover.

Of course, you can also use this piano arrangement to accompany a singer, or sing along yourself - this sheet music includes a system for the vocals, as well as the song's full lyrics and chords!

Eric Clapton began writing "Tears in Heaven" after a series of personal tragedies - in 1990, he lost friends in a helicopter acciddent, and in 1991, his four-year-old son Conor died after falling from a window.

After writing the first verse, he asked American songwriter Will Jennings to help him complete the song's lyrics.

Clapton then recorded the song for the soundtrack of the 1991 film "Rush" by Lili Fini Zanuck.

In 1992, a live version of the song was recorded at an MTV Unplugged concert, which was included on his 1992 album "Unplugged".

"Tears in Heaven" became Clapton's best-selling single in the US and won several awards, including three Grammy Awards.

Needless to say, it's one of the most heart-breaking songs ever written about losing a loved one, and it makes for a beautiful piano ballad.
