LESSON ONE: Rev. Davis played many gospel songs with a blues feel. These are referred to as ""Holy Blues."" Death Don't Have No Mercy is an excellent example of a Holy Blues in the key of Em. Let Us Get Together follows, and is played in the key of G. This is a difficult arrangement illustrating Rev. Davis's control over his right hand.
LESSON TWO: Rev.Gary Davis's religious arrangements in the key of C: I Belong to the Band and Tryin' to Get Home.
LESSON THREE: For ragtime playing Rev. Davis would approach his guitar as if it were a piano. For gospel songs the guitar takes on the role of a full Baptist church! In this lesson we study two gospel arrangements, Pure Religion and I Am the Light of the World. Both are played in the key of C and have become popular in today's pop world. "
