This song has one of the shortest intros ever! But...it's packed with flavor. Here's where you'll get an opportunity to experience that: "less is more". In this lecture I'll show you how to connect the bass notes with the keyboard parts especially when you're coming from a place of restful silence (strategically planning) for a quick comeback of only 4 notes, before stepping back in the shadows.
In this lecture, I'll teach you: The basic chord progression structure My approach to fingering How to recognize quarter note "Grooves" Passing chords How to listen for Melodic & Rhythmic similarities
This song requires at least 2 mechanical/technical (as in from your hands) bass sounds all from the electric bass! In this lecture, I teach you how the technique and use of palm muting along with an alternate hammerstroke. This isn't my favorite plucking style, but i'll show you how to do it effectively! Come on into the lecture!
Ohhhh yea!!! There's tons of key changes in gospel :) This song utilizes a common form, theoretically. Come on in, I can't wait to show you!
In this lecture, we'll cover the next part of the song also known as the "B-Section". Here, you'll learn how to drive the chord progression while doing your part to maintain the groove! Let's play and sing it together: YOU'RE ALLLLL I NEEEEEEEED JEEEEEE-SUUUUUS!  :)
At 4 minutes 47 seconds into the recording, the entire band plays a huge unison line. Come on in, I can't wait to show you what fingers to use so you can play it too!
