Follow the Son (Hillsong )

By Kenny & Jerome

Here's the Hillsong version of Follow the Son. Jerome did the tabs & the slow-mo part in the 2nd half, and I played with the music in the first half. I switched around from the rhythm to the lead with the music, was rather confusing!

(New) Also see Jerome's full video at the end.



There may be some slight changes i did while I played with the music.. but the tabs should be more or less accurate.

Jerome's Recording



As you notice Kenny plays differently from the one i do here. He plays the second half of
bridge same as the first half:

---------
-12------
-11------
-13------
---------
---------

Instead, I played the second half like Nigel plays
---------
-14------
-14------
-14------
---------
---------
But its up to you guys to play want you want.

well for the intro lead guitar's part it's easier if your ring finger is covering the b d g strings on the ninth fret with the end of the ring finger on the d string. and the other fingers where the 8th and seventh fret are on the other 2 srings.

7th fret= index
8th fret= middle
9th fret= ring
e---------------------
b--7---9--------------
g----8-9--------------
d------9--------------

look at the mighty to save guitar workshop for better view of it.

Daniel said...

hey ken, do you play all downstroke or alternate picking for the verse? i tried alternate picking but dun have the kick while playing. but all downstroke seems too fast to stay in beat with the music.

kenny said...

Downstrokes, with a tad bit of palm mutes..

johny said...

JEROMME... I THINK THAT YOU DO A BAD THING IN THE VIDEO...

WHEN YOU PUT YOUR FEETS LIKE THIS:

I..I It's like you are worshiping satan... you may do a model by a much people...

I know that you are heavy, but you are christian too... so you don't may do the bad things that the heavy's or the world do...

Blessings.

you know, on the intro you're playing the rythm guitar...and i figured that the lead actually plays:
-----------------------------------
-9-9-7-7-9-9-10-10--9-9-9-9-7-7-7-7
-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9---9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9
-----------------------------------
-----------------------------------
-----------------------------------
and in the 1rsdt half of the verse it does nothing just an observation
