Hey y’all ! I just found out about this song last week. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of it. I wanted to share it with you guys on this Sunday afternoon. Enjoy! : )
It really is a beautiful song. I can’t stop hitting the replay button .
One of my all time favorites!
Unfortunately the video is not available to watch for people in the UK.
@Jono look up ‘Model Church’ on YouTube . Try to look for the Bluegrass Album Band Version . That’s my favorite one.
If not … try this one … but it’s played by another band:
OK will do, thanks
I just found this . These guys do a good job at the song too. Check it out , hopefully you can view it :
Beautiful song, let’s all remember we are the church not a building!
Agreed! I love Tony’s vocals. They just sound “right!”
Sounds a lot like In a Gravel Yard
It sounds very similar! I’ve never heard of In a Gravel Yard before, but I love it! Thanks for sharing.
I also feel like it kinda has a sound similar to this song:
Do you hear it too or is it just me?
It sure does Raymond so much for copyright’s. I hear that tune a lot in bluegrass just set to different lyrics and phrasing. I guess back in the day folks enjoyed sharing music until lawyers saw an easy way of earning a fast buck.
That’s true ! I always enjoy Bluegrass songs that have a similar progression though . There’s another song called Cabin in Caroline that sounds exactly like Gonnna Settel Down. I guess the only difference is that the lyrics are arranged differently.
How many voices are singing on Model Church? Tony, Doyle and J.D.? What are each harmony part called in this piece? I’m guessing high tenor, tenor and baritone, but I have a hard time picking out one voice because they blend so well.
tony = lead
Doyle = tenor (1/3rd above)
J.D. = Baritone (1/3rd below)
That’s a great question @jonny1 ! Call me ignorant, but I never knew each singer had a specific name to their singing. Such as tenor and baritone and etc. I always just thought “oh their harmonizing”. That’s really cool of you too @fiddle_wood that you know who’s singing what .
I soooo want to learn JD’s part. I will try to figure it out on my piano. Thanks.
