It sounds like the guitar is tuned open "E". 
Have you been baptized in Jesus' name and received the Holy Ghost?

I could only hope. Putting aside that this is the
Soul Stirrers, a long lived and successful organization,
one that broke in none lesser than Sam Cooke, with, (
I think, I am not a historian) J Farley (black suit)
stage right rear, bass vocals, one of his last tours,
and backup vocals by, I think, Willie Rogers, one of the
most respected in the mission field, and then there is Rev.
Martin Jacox....well...enuf said about that.
To answer the question, I am no preacher, but I note a
repetitive rhythm, well practiced, probably, under a
testimony and upbeat altar call. Yes, I have played
that kind of gospel and it remains a high point in my
musical life. I found my place in an Outreach Mission in
the deep South where I was the only musician who was
not African American.
Now, I am kind of easing my way back into the field
here where I live, Montana.
Thanks for checking it out. Sorry about the display.
All I did was copy the embed line from the original
You Tube, at least, that was what thought.
Best wishes,
Ed Shaw

You are welcome, UB.
The venue of this recording is probably an open-air
revival, which is where I was first exposed to a similar
style by Pentacostal revivals in the mid 1950's. One
black music professor on YouTube has it right: black and
white musician's exchanging ideas "over the hedges" just
about the time the electric guitar became popular. By the
time I heard it, they were already pretty well along
with it. Remember, the historic Shrine Concert in Oakland
was around 1955.
So, I say, keep on playing and let the Lord have His way  ;D
