A couple months ago, I filmed a few focused tutorials, covering just one hymn each. Here’s the first in that series- “It Is Well with My Soul.” I go through each verse slowly, explaining my thought process for the different techniques and fill-ins I use.
Do your best to avoid getting into a rut in your hymn-playing. Think THROUGH the text as you play. Don’t just think about playing the right notes. I know that’s easy to do, and believe me– on songs with difficult chord progressions (ex. “Jesus Is Coming Again,”), sometimes I find myself thinking more about playing the right notes than communicating a message through the text. 🙂
Think of each hymn you play as a sacred arrangement. What can you do to make each verse slightly different than the one before?
