An arrangement of Matt Redman’s popular worship song…When the Music Fades
Audio track: When the Music Fades (Heart of Worship)
This is a slow, reflective song, and the arrangement takes account of this.
The foundation of the accompaniment is a stead 4 beat downstroke strumming pattern, with variations leading into a new section of the song.
This is underpinned by a simple bass part (in some sections) and solid but relaxed rock drum track, with fills to add movement.
Chords are standard 1st position, in key of D:
Later in the arrangement, you’ll hear the chord changes linked by a series of hammer-ons. This is particularly clear in the flat-picked ending section.
