God of This City

Here's the chorus and instrumental to Chris Tomlin's God of this City. I kinda made the instrumental much more aggressive than in the recording; to play it the normal way just pluck the notes with less distortion, and skip all the bends.

Strum, with dotted 8th note delay.

Hey Kenny I like your cover here. How did you do the high pitched thing at 7b8r7? I can't figure it out >.<

Coram Deo said...

Thank you, Brent :)
I really appreciate it.

It should be bend to 21 instead of 20.

Alternatively you can just play it without the bends just rip on the actual note there.

shumalakada the thing kenny did there was a pinch harmonic google it.

This may be a somewhat silly sounding question but
how would this solo transpose into the Key A.....

Mikaele said...

How do you create that pinched sound when picking?
Do you need a special setting for that tone?

Sam said...

P. Gisbourne, the song is already in A, although the chorus may seem to make it sound like D

is it possible to transpose this to key of D? thx

Does anyone know what effect is used in the chorus-it sounds like a volume pedal fading in and out. It happens like twice or three times right around when tomlin says "city"..
