Gospel Keyboard Styles

A Complete Guide to Harmony, Rhythm and Melody in Authentic Gospel Style

Series: Piano Publisher: Harrison Music Education Systems Composer: Mark Harrison

This book digs into the authentic gospel stylings associated with great artists such as Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin. The first part of the book deals with the 3/4 or Slow Gospel style (used in the song “Amazing Grace,” for example), showing the harmonic techniques needed to create the real gospel sound on the piano. The second part focuses on the 4/4 or Fast Gospel style, where gospel harmonies are combined with up-tempo rhythms and syncopations to create exciting results (such as in Paul Simon's song “Gone at Last”). The techniques covered in this book will help you lead your congregation at the piano, and will inject new ideas into your rock, R&B and funk playing.
