African American Gospel Music

These video recordings are from a presentation on African American Gospel Music presented by my Pastor. The presentation is to a predominantly white audience who not that familiar with the history or style of African American Gospel Music. The venue the Church is Green Memorial AME Zion Church located in Portland, Maine, and the Pastor is Reverend Kenneth I. Lewis Jr. The Soloist is the Pastor’s Daughter Alyssa Lewis.

These videos are meant to show you an unrehearsed real-life flow of Gospel music and how I play. You’ll learn stuff like; how I accompany a soloist, how I play “Talk Music” behind the Pastor, how I play solo without the aid of a drummer or bassist, and you’ll learn some cool progressions and voicings used in the various songs. Downloadable MIDI files are available for all the songs presented in this training.

A great behind-the-scene view

A great behind-the-scene view of supporting the pastor and truly enhancing the worship experience. And with the “virtual keyboard” exposed, you can study all the beautiful passing chords and substitutions. The history of gospel music presented, and understanding the back stories to some of these songs, will forever change how you hear and play these classics.

Amazing

This has helped me know I’m not far from what you do I terms of background music and not over complicating the songs. I enjoyed every moment. It feels like home. Great work. I would expect anything less. ???
