Creating guitar parts for worship: Range and Density [Video]
Here’s Matt Isaac’s second video exploring ways of creating electric guitar parts in worship.
Range and density for electric guitar in worship
Key points covered in this video:
Pitch variation can be found within shapes, via string choice, not just along the fretboard
Listen to other parts, use range to avoid overcrowding, and to contrast other things that are
Use changes in pitch to mirror the song structure, or lyrical content
Raising and lowering pitch of a part can create builds and drops; space and air from high parts, body and weight from low
