 How to tell the differences between praise songs?
Solution The core concept of GospelKeys 300 is that praise songs follow patterns. Most of them fall into two categories:

1) The "A-B" songs
2) The "A-B-C-D" songs

(Of course, "Part E" is at the end of mostly all praise songs regardless of what pattern they follow).

"A-B" praise songs are usually call-and-response. If a song gives you a feeling of "call-and-response" (like singer says one thing and audience repeats same thing) or that it doesn't end, it is an "A-B" song.

If you get the feeling that a part of a song is ending and coming back around to the beginning of a song (a pause can usually indicate this because the singer is waiting for the song to wrap around to the beginning), this is usually an indication of a full "A-B-C-D" song. Your ear has to hear this but really it's just a matter of analyzing whether the song is CIRCULAR (singer says one thing, audience repeats same thing, singer says another thing very similar, audience repeats same thing... OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER again) ---or--- LINEAR (a sense of one part going to a different part going to an even different part and finally going to what sounds like an ending part... and THEN, and only THEN repeating back to the beginning to do it all over again).

(I hope you understand this. If not, I encourage you to ask me further questions on the forum at as this help desk is mainly for technical issues but the real nitty gritty questions get answered on the forum).

Here are some songs that follow each of the patterns:
