Steady My Heart


By Derrick

Here's Steady My Heart by Kari Jobe. I also included string sections and fills I improvised.

Chorus
0:51 - 1:20

Note: In my cover, I played the open G string and its octave at the second part of the chorus continuously to make it feel more like a chord sound than if I was only playing single notes. But doing that can create a bit of friction with the F# on the B string. So, it's really optional and how you want it to sound.
