Gospel School: Vamp #1


First in a series of definitive gospel vamps for your consideration…

Note: Play left hand one octave lower than written.


Study-Practice Notes

  • Notice the liberal use of syncopation and Blues vocabulary (Learning the Blues helps you learn gospel and vice versa!)
  • You know you have the rhythm down when it feels like you are bouncing up and down.
  • Don’t forget to swing the eight notes.
