"You've Got A Friend" - Vol. 1
Using a lesson request from a student, I created an accompaniment lesson on a gospel version of You've Got A Friend. In this 2-part lesson I will show you the rich gospel chords and how to 'fill the space' using a more gospel/jazz style. In addition, you will learn some nice transition chords. These are chords that move use smoothly between the larger I-IV-V chords. While not an easy lesson, there is something here for all levels. In part 2 we will cover 'gospel grooving' where we take a simple progression and really groove on it.
In this collection, you will learn gospel songs and arrangement techniques like how to play gospel walk ups, syncopating the bass pattern and other ideas that you can incorporate into your own piano playing. Improvisation tips that will help you structure your improvisation more are also included.
