It's been so cool to see bands like Maverick City Music collaborating with other worship bands like Elevation to seamlessly blend ideas from CCM with gospel.
Even if your church doesn't play any gospel music, it is 100% worth it to work on understanding some of the core musical ideas, common riffs, etc that are just the tip of the iceberg. Not only will it make you a better keys player in general, you'll have a blast learning! Plus, you'll have a leg up the next time a gospel song gets put on your Setlist.
But how can you start learning the basics of gospel piano and keys? If you don't know where to start, that's totally understandable. There are amazing, advanced tutorial resources out there but if you're brand new to this way of playing that can go right over your head. So I asked our friend Isaac Rodriguez to break down a few of his favorite, simple gospel keys riffs in this new video.
