I'm a big fan of Casting Crowns. In a former post, I shared the chord progressions with you, to the song Voice of Truth. Now I'd like to share the chords to Who Am I that was written in 2003 by Mark Hall. The song is played in the key of Bb, moderately slow in 2.



Casting Crowns

Verse 1
       C           G               Am
Who am I? That the Lord of all the earth,
      G               F           G               F     
Would care to know my name, would care to feel my hurt,
       C           G                  Am
Who am I? That the Bright and Morning Star,
      G                   F           G              F 
Would choose to light the way, For my ever wandering heart,
    Am               G       F                      G
Not because of who I am, but because of what You've done,
    Am                   G         F                  G
Not because of what I've done, but because of who You are,


Chorus

C      G              Am           G              F 
I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow,
  G                  F                             C
A wave tossed in the ocean (ocean), a vapor in the wind,
          G                Am                 G                 F 
Still You hear me when I'm calling, Lord, You catch me when I'm falling,
           G             F 
And You've told me who I am.. 
     C
I am Yours.

Verse 2

       C           G                Am
Who am I? That the eyes that see my sin,
      G               F         G             F   
Would look on me with love, and watch me rise again,
       C           G                     Am
Who am I? That the voice that calmed the sea,
      G                    F         G                 F    
Would call out through the rain, and calm the storm in me,
    Am               G       F                      G
Not because of who I am, but because of what You've done,
    Am                   G         F                  G
Not because of what I've done, but because of who You are,

Here I am playing the song from one of my songbooks on my old acoustic piano.
 
 
I changed the tempo a bit and made a few mistakes in the video taken with my iPad. lol

Beginner's Corner: Practice Idea

paper chain

Holiday Paper Chains

Here is a fun idea that will help you polish a piece for a winter family gathering or recital and it will give you a beautiful chain for your Christmas tree. (If you celebrate other holidays, you can use different colors and make a decoration for a window or doorway.)

Follow these steps:

1. Cut a few dozen thin strips of colored construction paper (one color or multiple colors, whichever you prefer).

2. Look at your piece and divide the music into small practice sections - you will work on only a few measures or one line at a time. Make a goal of playing each section 3, 5, or 10 times correctly. your teacher can help you set your goals.

3. Play each section several times. Each time you correctly play through the section you earn one strip of construction paper for one link of chain. (You can start making a pile of paper strips or just keep track of correct times and get all the strips at the end of practice.)

4. When you are done practicing, make the chain from the strips of paper earned. Glue, tape or staple the first strip into a loop; then loop the next one onto the previous one, gluing the ends together. Keep adding new strips each day!

Remember - Only correct repetitions of the music count. If you make a mistake, you don't get a strip of paper for that try. Make your sections short, so that it's not too difficult to get them right.

Good King Wenceslas

English: "King Wenceslas". Made by H...
English: "King Wenceslas". Made by Hudson, Scott & Sons for Huntley & Palmers, 1913. Victoria and Albert Museum no. M.367-1983. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Historical Note

"The beloved Christmas carol "Good King Wenceslas" tells the story of a real tenth-century king who was well known for his generosity and Christian spirit.

Vaclav Wenceslas was born in Bohemia, which is now part of the Czech Republic. Born into the royal family, Wenceslas was raised by his grandmother to be a devout Christian. His father died when he was only thirteen years old, and five years later Wenceslas became king. Young King Wenceslas ruled the land fairly, gave aid to the poor, and sought to spread Christianity throughout Bohemia.

In 1853 John Mason Neale, an Anglican priest who lived in England, heard stories of the Bohemian king's kindness and wrote "Good King Wenceslas" to inspire children to be generous on Saint Stephen's Day (December 26). The music for the song comes from a spring carol that was first published in 1582.

The Christmas song portrays Wenceslas the way the people of his time knew him - a compassionate man who was especially kind to children, orphans, and slaves."
It's a very traditional Christmas song, here it is in the Key of F, played with 4/4 time signature. I like it because just about every word is associated with a chord change. Hope you like it, too.

Silent Night
I was reading a beautiful picture book about how Father Mohr and Franz Gruber went to work in the final hours of the evening and came to write one of the world's best-known and best-loved Christmas songs - "Silent Night." It also tells how this simple song quickly spread from country to country and from language to language, and how its message of hope and peace continues to be shared throughout the world - even in times of war and strife.
 Here are the chords in the Key of Bb, with 6/8 time signature.

How To Play: Do You Hear What I Hear

christmas bell


Do You Hear What I Hear was written in 1962 , with words and music by Noel Regney and Gloria Shayne. The pair were married at the time, and wrote it as a plea for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It has sold tens of millions of copies and has been covered by hundreds of artists. For more information, visit http://en.wikipedia.org It's played moderately, with feeling. 
Here's a look at the chord chart:

G         F     C/E   Dm7  GC  Gm7
With a tail as big as a kite
. . . .

CGm7C
Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,

C
"Do you hear what I hear?"

                           Gm7C
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,

"Do you hear what I hear?"

AmEm
song, a song, high above the trees

FG  F  EAm

 GF    C/EDm7  GC

CGm7C
Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,

C
"Do you know what I know?"

Gm7C

AmEm
Child, a Child shivers in the cold

FG     FE
Let us bring Him silver and gold
 GF      C/EDm7G  C Gm7
Let us bring Him silver and gold
. . . .

CGm7C
Said the king to the people ev'ry-where,

C
"Listen to what I say!"

G                    Gm7C
Pray for peace, people every-where,

C
"Listen to what I say!"

AmEm

FG    FE  Am
He will bring us goodness and light
 GFC/E  Dm G7C Gm7  C  Gm7  C

You can keep it by your side like a textbook for quick, easy reference
any time you need it. Just fill in the blanks and charts with a pencil and
go over the material from time to time. Music theory is important to understand
the building blocks of chord progressions, key signatures, circle of fifths and
modulation.
