 Bio

I have fond memories of listening to Chuck Girard, Barry McGuire and so many sounds from the Jesus days of Calvary Chapel and Maranatha singers in the 70s.  Do you have a favorite tune? Listen to Freedom on YouTube.


FREEDOM

Em7       
Jesus is the One that makes me never
      D9
Ever want to spend another day without Him
Em7
Jesus is the One who shows me everytime
          D9
I turn around that I could never doubt Him
 F7        
Jesus is the One that makes me want to shout the news 
              Ab7
Above the rooftops
Bb7                                C7 
Shout the joyful news and let the people know
                   Db7
That Jesus is the Lord!

Em7
Jesus is the One who changes slowly
           D9
All the evil things that dwell so deep inside me
Em7
Jesus is the One who cares forever
                                      D9
Never let me down and never failed to guide me
F7               
Jesus is the One that makes me want to shout the news 
          Ab7
Above the rooftops
                Bb7            
Come on, let's shout the joyful news
            C7                             F
And let the people know that Jesus is the Lord!
          G     G/F   G/E   G/D
HE'S THE LORD!

He's the only One who's true
                 F7
(He'll give you freedom)

               G     Eb7
He'll set you free
               G     Eb7

How To Learn Chords FAST

 So, what if you could pop a CD into your home or car
stereo and learn everything you needed to know to
start playing beautiful chords on the piano? 

I'm talking about all the same chords used to play
practically every popular song out there! The
ones you grew up listening to... the songs you
now enjoy... classic holiday tunes... even your
kids' favorite songs... and more (like this one!)

What if you could learn all the chords that make
up those songs in just an hour or so? Would you
be excited?

 Hear and Play Music  reveals an approach
that allows you to learn anywhere: at your piano,
in your car, on your ipod while at the gym ---
ANYWHERE!

So, if you have a CD player and two hours to
spare, then you have what it takes to start
mastering chords by ear.
