Artist: Elevation Worship
Album: Hallelujah Here Below
album info: Album Key: D (male, high), 4/4 time, 68 bpm
Here Again is a great worship song from Elevation – extremely singable melodies and powerful lyrics. We find it can be really hard to sing in the album key (D), especially with the octave jumps and how high the bridge gets. In our acoustic play through video, we tuned down 1/2 step, so we’re actually in Db, and it’s still really high. You can experiment with different keys to suit your voice or vocalist.
Play it yourself
In the beginning of this song, you’ll want to really back off on the strumming – maybe even just one strum per measure or chord change. Once the song picks up, there are a couple patterns you could use – here is a basic pattern you could use in most sections:
The intro, turn arounds, and verse sections all have half-measure changes. When a chord changes after just 2 beats (half-measure changes) use this pattern
If you’re in a bigger section of the song, you can use this pattern for a bit more energy:
The Gear We Use
- Guitar: Martin CEO-7, LR Baggs Anthem pickup (recorded direct in)
- Microphone: Shure SM7b
- Interface: UA Apollo Twin Duo – everything was recorded direct into this
- Audio/recording: Apple Logic Pro X
- Video: Apple Final Cut
I have a Question about copyright. Is it enough that you just make clear who wrote the Song you coverd? or do you need some special licens for uploading These Covers?
I want to upload Covers of some worship Songs and i’m not sure how These things with the right of the Songs work.
Sorry for my English..i’m german.
It would be nice if you’d reply!
I love music but I don’t know how to play the instruments. With the tutorial I watch, I felt inspired to learn the acoustic guitar. now I have picked one with full confidence that you will guide me on how to start because I don’t even know the names of the strings. I really need help and I am a student which I promise to give part of my study hour to learn this instrument. I need both the step by step videos send to me and diagrams.
