The ambient music you hear in the background is called Pads – you can download Pads here.
Info Arrangement: Hillsong Young & Free – We Are Young & Free Key: D Tempo:132 BPM, 4/4 time This is a great high-energy song that works very well as an opener. Sounds like a modern pop song – lots of synth elements and the beat is pretty catchy. The hardest part is the strumming and […]
Nick demos the Modulate setting on the Boss RV-5 Reverb, and it sounds delicious. This is by far our favorite setting on this pedal, and where we feel it really shines. Perfect for swells and ambient sounds.
The RV-5 is a great sounding and very versatile reverb. In this demo, Nick walks through the Spring, Plate, Hall, Room, and Gate modes. In Part 2, we’ll show you the beautiful Modulate setting. Our favorite setting of these modes is the Hall setting, but they all sound pretty good.

View all our guitar lessons here Introduction The Key of B is not a super common key to play in – especially on acoustic. Usually you just see people play key of G chords with a capo on the 4th fret or key of A chords with a capo on the 2nd. One of the […]
Info Arrangement: Planetshakers – Limitless Key: A to B (tutorial is showing G to A, but capo 2 makes it A to B) Tempo: 76 BPM, 4/4 time The Anthem can feel difficult at first due to the number of chords, the bass walk-ups, and the key change, but once you get all the progressions […]
One very cool trick you can use capos for is playing the same song with different key voicings. To illustrate how this works, let’s take the song Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong United. Oceans is in D, so naturally, you can play without a capo in the key of D. But, you can […]
