"It's Your Season" Norman Hutchins chord help
« on: April 09, 2009, 08:52:07 AM »
Hey LGM, a lot of people have been wanting to play this song. I got a chance to listen to and what I'm gonna do is offer some help by showing the pattern of the song.

It's starts off with the traditional preaching chords using 3-4-#4-5, then does a 6-2-5-1 and repeats the preaching chords. A lot of the bass runs in btween are either a 1/2 step higher or lower than the ones from the pattern:

Key Gb

Bb / Bb-Db-Gb (3)
Cb / Cb-Eb-Gb (4)
C / A-C-Eb-Gb (#4)
Db / Bb-Db-Gb (5)
D /
Eb / G-Cb-Db-Gb (6)
A /
Ab / C-Eb-Gb-A (2)
C /
Db / Cb-Eb-Gb (5)
Gb / Bb-Db-Gb (1)

then repeat them first 4 chords and add an ending 5 as the turnaround:

Bb / Bb-Db-Gb (3)
Cb / Cb-Eb-Gb (4)
C / A-C-Eb-Gb (#4)
Db / Bb-Db-Gb (5)
Db / Cb-Db-G-A (5)

Now, u got you some preacher chords you can use, LOL.  Anyways, the next part of the song is 1 for a while, 2-5, 1-5-1-4-#4, then ends with 5-6-2-5-1 & turnaround from the intro:

It's your
Gb / Bb-Db-Gb (1) season to be blessed, God made you a promise
*while you're on the 1, the CD does a little bass line and alternates 1 and 4 chords
Gb, Bb, Db, Eb / Bb-Db-Gb, Cb-Eb-Gb
Ab / C-Eb-Gb-Bb (2) and you stood the
Db / Db-F-Ab (5) test,
Ab / C-Eb-Gb-Bb (2)
Db / Db-F-Ab (5) He's gonna open a
Gb / Bb-Db-Gb (1) window
Db / Cb-Fb-Ab (5) and
Gb / Bb-Db-Gb (1) pour you out a
Cb / Gb-Cb-Eb (4) blessing,
C / A-C-Eb-Gb (#4) it's your
Db / Bb-Db-Gb (5) sea-
D /
Eb / G-Cb-Db-Gb (6) son
A /
Ab / C-Eb-Gb-A (2)
C /
Db / Cb-Eb-Gb (5) to be
Gb / Bb-Db-Gb (1) blessed.

turnaround:
Bb / Bb-Db-Gb (3)
Cb / Cb-Eb-Gb (4)
C / A-C-Eb-Gb (#4)
Db / Bb-Db-Gb (5)
Db / Cb-Db-G-A (5)

See there?  Not too hard at all once u know the pattern of the song.  That's about 90% of the song right there, even the verse.  Then, towards the middle they do a little bridge type thing that's just 3-6-2-5. Then, they do a little 6-#6-7-1 walk-up into the vamp which is a 1-4:

it's your
Bb / Ab-Db-F (3) sea-
Eb / G-Cb-Db-Gb (6) son,
Ab / Cb-Eb-Gb (2)
Db / Cb-Eb-Gb (5) it's your...
(repeat a few times)

Eb / Db-G-C-Eb (6)
E / D-G#-C#-E (#6) it's
F / Eb-A-D-F (7) your

Vamp:

Gb / Bb-Db-Fb-Gb (1) season,
Ab, A, Bb /
Cb  / A-Db-Eb-Gb (4) it's your...
Eb, E, F /
(repeat)

Then it goes back to the beginning chords and ends.  Like I said before, it's not too hard.  It sounds more complicated than it is.  This is how a lot of those old Congregational songs are formed.  I know all the instruments and bass runs sound hard, but u can play it as simple as u want.

Please, I hope all of you struggling musicians take the time to apply what you learned here to other songs like this.  Don't just steal the chords cuz that won't help you in the long run.  It will take lots of effort on your part at first, but after a few times it gets easier and easier until the process becomes second nature to you.

Bro T. Block,

THANKS SO MUCH! for taking the time out of your busy schedule to  not only listen to the music but also write out the chords for the sake of enhancing our music ministries. I have played this particular song before, but I was not able to play it like the cd. Man, we need to have an appreciation program for you. for all that you have done and still doing for the LGM family. ;D. I  would have no problem contributing to this program. BTW, thanks to all of you who have shared your musical talents as well with us.


God Bless You! :D

You all are welcome.  I hope this has helped someone broaden their understanding of not only this song, but of other songs like it.

I have played this particular song before, but I was not able to play it like the cd.

Let me address this issue man.  I may get some flack for this, but your goal shouldn't be to play the song exactly like the CD.  You should learn the pattern, then intepret it the way you want to.  I understand what u mean, but just keep in mind that you want to play it the way YOU feel. 

I garauntee that if u were to hear this song live right now using the same musicians, it won't sound like the CD.  Why? Because that's there interpretation at the time.  They may have learned some new runs or chords by now and totally revamp the song. They probably won't ever play that song like that again, so why should you worry?

I used to feel bad that my stuff didn't sound like the CD.  Now, I don't care too much cuz I'm playing it the way I feel it.  Keep up the good work and stay encouraged!
