Gospel Music Lounge / Racism In The Church
« Last post by funkStrat_97 on July 23, 2018, 10:17:36 AM »
I know y'all don't like watching "long" Youtube videos (praying that the Lord delivers you from that spirit  ;D ), but I think that many valid points have been raised in this video.  For your convenience, it starts at the 26:13 minute mark to the end, but up to the 32 minute mark gives some insight to a couple of important points.

You said it yourself
I might even know the song, but sometimes cannot place the necessary chord.
So write down the names of the songs and go home and learn them, and analyze the theory behind the chord progressions so you can add them to your quiver. The more you learn different songs you don't know, the more you'll be familiar with what those types of songs typically do with their chords.

Thanks, CS. Iím slapping myself on the forehead. I listen to satellite radio all the time in my car, but am always listening to oldies. I have a choice of several gospel stations. I can utilize that time easily to select songs for further study. I can prepare my own comping material. Great suggestion. Thanks again.

I may not be the best to respond because I ddint fully implement, but since I might be the only one to respond for a while I'll share my one idea...

I drive alot. And usu, Im listening to gospel, or atleast I used to . (Doing a lot more podcasts, tutorials, etc. lately). I carried something to write with in the front seat, so if I heard a banging chord progression/movement Id jot the song/ timestamp down so when I got back to my board, I could pick up that movement, and then play it in all keys. I also had to write them down, so I was creating my own collection of gospel moves that I liked, and should I forget I could go back to it. Worked for me, while I used it. It increased my vocabulary of options to play in church for those same tired voicings I was using. But it is a lot of work. I also used the sheet music/songbooks of my favorite artists to follow along and pick out moves I liked and worked on them.

FTR, I did try to find my sheet music that had my moves in it, but cant find it.

Gospel Music Lounge / Re: Sacred vs. Secular: Is There a Real Difference?

I would say yes and no. Although gospel music has many styles it has evolved. There are certain songs I hear on the radio I say that sounds like gospel even though it has a certain style to it. One indicator is that gospel artists like to talk a lot. Lol  I donít really listen to secular music except for whatís on tv, personal time with the wife, or more along the lines of ďartsĒ like jazz, classical, folk music. So my view may be a little skewed.

I peek in every blue moon. Wife and three kids. I donít have too much free time seeing they are all under 5. Iím learning though. You have to do things you want when everybody is sleep.  :D I have started over my musical journey somewhat about a month or two ago. I plan to chronicle it on YouTube but have not gotten the videos together.
