Does anyone play in this style?
« on: December 25, 2007, 06:33:00 AM »
The question is, does anyone play in that Mahalia Jackson style?  My pastor would like me to learn this style.  There are a number of vids of Mahalia on youtube.com; check out one I have posted below.  This style has a lot of layers to it.  I cannot begin to think of how to learn it as I am still learning basic songs.  (Note, I have posted this topic in a couple of places- not sure where it belongs)

Additional questions:

1.  What is the name of that piano style?
2.  What are the basic patterns or progressions used in this style
3.  What are the basic scales used (like I would understand the answer!)

Mahalia Jackson (Piano emphasis):
   "Didn't It Rain, Children"
  "Joshua Fit the Battle Jericho"
  "How I Got Over" (see, 3:45++)
