Pass Me Not, Oh Gentle Savior > Performance and Bass Line

No one can deny that the blues and spirituals go hand in hand. So this week we will begin learning the classic spiritual, Pass Me Not Oh Gentle Savior. Pay close attention to your alternating bass and above all, take your time. Once you get the rhythm and the feel of the bass line then everything else will fall into place much easier. Don't focus on singing right now, just listen to the alternating bass and let it sink in.

I hope that you enjoy this one.

Honor!

Corey

Loop 1:42 Introduction to Pass Me Not Oh Gentle Savior (Open E Tuning)

Loop 2:13 Run-Through

 

Pass me not, O gentle Savior,

Hear my humble cry;

While on others Thou art calling,

Do not pass me by.

 

Refrain:

Savior, Savior,

Hear my humble cry,

While on others Thou art calling,

Do not pass me by.

 

Let me at Thy throne of mercy

Find a sweet relief;

Kneeling there in deep contrition,

Help my unbelief.

 

Trusting only in Thy merit,

Would I seek Thy face;

Heal my wounded, broken spirit,

Save me by Thy grace.

 

Thou the spring of all my comfort,

More than life to me,

Whom have I on earth beside Thee,

Whom in Heav’n but Thee.
