Customer Comment About This Book:
Gospel Riffs God Would Love To Hear I love Gospel music, and so far with Andrew Gordon's books I haven't been disappointed. This book was no exception. And even though I thought Andrew couldn't have gotten any better in his books he did. The book finishes with two songs (When The Saints Go Marching In and Amazing Grace) that provide of understanding of how to create an arrangement from just chords and a melody (using techniques from the books riffs). Wow, this music instruction at its best for a very, very reasonable price. Don't waste your money on anything else.
I bought this book a few months ago, and it really does keep you learning. I always want to learn the next song. I would definately recommend this book to anyone who has played 5 years or more. It might be a while until you can play some of the songs up to speed, but it is well worth the work."
