I explained a bit about what this series is about in my last post POSTED HERE, so I won’t retread new ground, however I’m sure a few of you are puzzled: “Mary did you Know?” has been floating around for just under a quarter of a century! However, it’s a classic that moves my heart, & one that has some tricky spots for inexperienced musicians/worship leaders.
This tutorial video has two parts:
- A short intro & song demonstration and…
- A short breakdown of a few specific simplification strategies.
Watch the video for more information:
One of the specific simplification strategies I suggest in the video is to ditch the “slash chords”: only play the chord listed to the left of the “/”. The only exception to that rule being “D/F#” – it’s one of the simplest slash chords, & it’s essential to the melodic walk-down in which it’s found.
Stay tuned for more worship song tutorials through-out the month of December!
In the meanwhile, what’s YOU’RE favorite Christmas song to sing or lead during these Winter months, & why? Looking forward to hearing from you!
