How To Play King of Glory: Jesus Culture


King of Glory: Jesus Culture
Freedigitalphotos.net

I'm home now. I am refreshed and encouraged by the youth of America, seeing young people worship at Jesus Culture. It was an amazing time for so many! I wanted to introduce a fairly easy song to play, along with the harmonizing of the melody with vocals. The intro starts out with a straight forward beat and then the pattern of the rhythm changes with the verse. You will be recycling the chorus pattern over and over.

If you're not familiar with the song, here it is on YouTube.


Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The LORD of Heaven's Armies--he is the King of glory. Psalm 24:9-10, NLT

The king referred to in Psalm 24 is repeatedly described as the King of glory. Glory means the state of being magnificent, splendid, extraordinary, and praiseworthy. Still, the psalmist does not name this King. Who is this King of glory?

You'll find Spanish words to the song, here.
Also, a slow version with tutorial of the song found here.
