Tips to Play the Piano Notes for Love Story

Fast Notes – Brackets

Some letter notes for the song Love Story are given in brackets like (notes); they are meant to be played quickly or fast, similar to 16th, 32nd, or sometimes 8th notes in sheet music.

Play these notes continuously and connectedly, following the “Love Story” song’s rhythm and lyrics.

The next regular note is written immediately after the closing bracket.

Sustained Notes – Wavy Lines

The wavy line symbol ~ (tilde) following a note indicates sustained notes.

  • One tilde signifies a quarter-note duration on the piano sheet.
  • Two tildes denote a half-note duration.
