Anyone here play this type music? I am trying to arrange a few old "church" songs but am finding it difficult to incorporate descending runs. I've run out of ideas. I hear things I like on some recordings but don't hear well & am finding it impossible to mimic the sound. Do you know of any books on 2 finger descending runs that would be helpful? Thanks.

I don't play that genre, but I did run into a web site called "Hear and Play" that's strongly into it. You could also google "Jermaine Griggs".

I love this genre and try to play and arrange it.

I recommend the Pop Piano Book of Mark Harrison ; there are 90 pages dedicated just to gospel.
