King of Majesty

Two of my passions in life are God and guitaring, and I consider myself very fortunate that I can do both at the same time by worshiping on the guitar. Furthermore, theres a high chance that God would allow us to worship Him in heaven as musicians, and I always wonder what kind of musical instruments He'd give us - stuff that'd beat Fenders and Gibsons anytime! Just imagine collaborating with songwriters and other musicians to produce music that glorifies His name hour after hour, isn't that amazing?

-----------

Here's a 3 day old request from Jake (i've not forgotten), for King of Majesty. Unfortunately, the video quality is pretty dark, because its nighttime here. Anyway, King of Majesty is a really energetic song, so put in lots of energy and praise into your playing!

I've split the song into two parts: the verse and the chorus-bridge.

Verse


Verse Tabs:
Use lots of palm mutes to achieve the 'jumping' effect.

Then play the power chords: B E G#m E

What king of distortion or effect do you use for the verse part of the song?

Phil said...

For the Key of A, you would be Correct going two frets down the only problem is its already at the lowest part of the fret board. so the last note which is the open B string would be an A but there is no -2! >=( but the third string second fret is an A.

I basically finger and E chord... and then i use my pinky to add on to the last note.

I am always upset when my worship leaders take sweet hillsong songs in the key of B and transpose them in the key of A becaue they don't have to play as many bar chords...
