In this post I will talk about a nice run to play before the starting 1 chord of slow gospel chords.
On the left hand, you go
3 4 5 6 7 1
e.g. in the key of C major, you will go
E F G A B C
On the right hand you will harmonize the following melody:
3 4 3 2♯ 2 1
by using the following chords:
1 4 3minor 2♯-minor 2minor 1.
In the key of Cmajor these chords are:
G+C+E A+C+F G+B+E F♯+A♯+D♯ F+A+D E+G+C
First chord you harmonize the E using a Cmajor chord
Second you harmonize the F using a Fmajor chord
Third you harmonize the E with a Eminor
Then you go down a half step with the same chord shape to harmonize the D♯ with a D♯ chord
You then harmonize the D with a Dminor
Then you harmonize the C with a Cmajor chord.
To make it more melodious, on the right hand you can insert a 1sus4 chord before the last 1chord. That is, insert a Csus4 chord before the last Cmajor chord. So instead of going from F+A+D to E+G+C on the right hand, you can play it like this:
F+A+D F+G+C E+G+C
Furthermore, you can make the left hand run a little more melodious by quickly adding a 2 before the 5 since 2 normally has a strong pull to 5. So the left hand run becomes
3 4 2 5 6 7 1
To summarize, on the left hand you play the following notes
3 4 2 5 6 7 1
while on the right hand you play the following chords:
1 4 3minor 2♯minor 2minor 1sus4 1.
In the key of C, on the left hand you play:
E F D G A B C
while on the right hand you play:
G+C+E A+C+F G+B+E F♯+A♯+D♯ F+A+D F+G+C E+G+C
