The Sara Bareilles Gravity Piano Sheet and Piano Tutorial
This beautiful pop ballad by Sara Bareilles called gravity is very suitable for the piano since the arrangement of the original piece is basically arranged for piano and strings while only at the the rest of the band is added.
The chords in this song are quite jazzy and are played at the middle register of the piano. You'll often encounter the major seventh chord played in different manners followed by different bass notes.

To create a major seventh chord you should basically take a triad chord with three voices for example C-E-G and add another root above (C-E-G-C). Then simply lower the higher root a semi tone down to B and play: C-E-G-B while adding the root note, C, in the left hand.
