This is a fun, gospel arrangement. The drums have a ‘train’ sort of feel (the ‘choo choo’ not ‘soul sister’ variety). This arrangement is a medley of Are You Washed In the Blood with There Is Power In the Blood. Toe tapping for sure. These type arrangements play themselves and everyone will love this energetic opener.
This arrangement is in the Key of F then changes key up to G. You don’t have to have a rhythm section to play this piece. Not at all. As long as you have a piano player, they can play the written out piano part and go to town!
As true to the entire series, this arrangement features playable, easy to read rhythms for all sections.
