How To Play King of Glory: Jesus Culture


King of Glory: Jesus Culture
Freedigitalphotos.net

I'm home now. I am refreshed and encouraged by the youth of America, seeing young people worship at Jesus Culture. It was an amazing time for so many! I wanted to introduce a fairly easy song to play, along with the harmonizing of the melody with vocals. The intro starts out with a straight forward beat and then the pattern of the rhythm changes with the verse. You will be recycling the chorus pattern over and over.

If you're not familiar with the song, here it is on YouTube.


Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The LORD of Heaven's Armies--he is the King of glory. Psalm 24:9-10, NLT

 

King of Glory (Jesus Culture)


INTRO:

Am D2 Am Em 
Am D2 X4      (on keyboard, check other tabs for Guitar intro)


VERSE 1:
     Am                            F
Your face outshines the brightest sun
                C                   Em
Jesus, You're glorious, You are so glorious
      Am                           F
With eyes that blaze like burning fire
                C                   Em
Jesus, You're glorious, You are so glorious

Am F D2 Am F G Em 


Repeat Verse 1, Then:


CHORUS: (X2)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/j/jesus-culture/280840.html ]
Am                    F
King of Glory, have Your glory
D2             Am    F    G Em    
King of Glory, have Your glory


VERSE 2:
      Am                        F
Your voice like rushing waters sounds
              C                    Em
Jesus You're powerful, You are so powerful
    Am                           F
And in Your Hands you hold the stars
              C                    Em
Jesus You're powerful, You are so powerful


CHORUS:

Am                    F
King of Glory, have Your glory
D2             Am    F    G Em
King of Glory, have Your gloryHold Chorus pattern until the end of the song, and end on Am.

I found the guitar and bass chords online:


Intro (repeat this part once more) (Guitar)
e -------12----------------10--------|
b -10------13-----8-10--------8------|
1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 (count for timing, but slow)

Verse

Dm_________________Bb________
Your face outshines the brightest sun
________F__________Am____________
Jesus, You're glorious, You are so glorious
__Dm_______________Bb_______
With eyes that blaze like burning fire
________F_________Am_____________
Jesus, You're glorious, You are so glorious

Chorus

Dm________Bb___________
King of Glory, have your glory
Dm/B______Dm__Bb__C/B_C_
King of Glory, have your glo - ry

Verse 2 (Play the same chords as first verse)

Your voice like rushing waters sounds
Jesus, You're powerful, You are so powerful
And in Your hands You hold the stars
Jesus, You're powerful, You are so powerful

The king referred to in Psalm 24 is repeatedly described as the King of glory. Glory means the state of being magnificent, splendid, extraordinary, and praiseworthy. Still, the psalmist does not name this King. Who is this King of glory?

You'll find Spanish words to the song, here.
Also, a slow version with tutorial of the song found here. 
If you need to change the key for your worship team and want an easy way to do it, see

Summer Worship


LadyDpiano: Summer Worship

 I'm heading out in a few minutes to experience a worship concert and seminar event in SoCal. Should be fun and very interesting. So, I'm taking a little time off from blogging and teaching... a much needed rest.  I'll be back to tell you all about it. You know, what I found out and learned.

In the meantime, I have received emails from so many of my readers expressing needs in these areas:

1. reading music notes on the staff
2. understanding chord charts
3. more riffs and turnarounds
4. color chords
5. pattern playing

See you next week and we'll cover some of these topics. If you're interested in pentatonic scales, check out my other blog posts at http://pianodiana.blogspot.com

Happy summer, dear readers!

How To Play 911: Kirk Franklin


Kirk Franklin: 911

About Kirk Franklin


b. 26 January 1970, Fort Worth, Texas, USA. A meteoric success story in gospel music, a genre more usually associated with the longevity of its artists, Franklin made a huge impact with his 1993 debut. A fixture at the top of the US Contemporary Christian and Gospel charts, and the first platinum selling gospel album, it featured powerful performances from the 17-piece "Family" of musicians and singers, many of whom were drawn from Franklin's home town of Fort Worth, Texas.
 
Franklin was raised by his aunt as a strict Baptist, and he was leading the Mt. Rose Baptist Church choir by the time he was 11. Despite a troubled and rebellious teenage period, by his early twenties Franklin was writing material for gospel greats including Rev. Milton Biggham, Daryl Coley, Yolanda Adams and Rev. John P. Kee. The success of his debut saw the Family booked to appear on syndicated USA television programme The Arsenio Hall Show, while contemporary artists as diverse as Ice Cube and R. Kelly paid public respect to their craft. Subsequent albums established Franklin  
and his bands (God's Property and Nu Nation) as probably contemporary gospel's biggest and most commercially successful artist, and have featured guest appearances from artists including Kelly, Bono and Mary J. Blige. He has also topped the US R&B charts on several occasions, most notably with the 1997 single "Stomp" and the attendant God's Property From Kirk Franklin's Nu Nation, while his 2007 release The Fight Of My Life broke into the mainstream Top 40. Franklin has won five Grammys in addition to numerous Stellar Awards.

This song was written in 2002. You'll be playing the song in the Key of F in 4/4 time. Here's some of the chords I've figured out.

 "911"
(feat. TD Jakes)


[Daughter:] Hello
[Kirk:] Hey, it's me, Kirk, I need to speak to Bishop
[Daughter:] Sure, hold on...

[Jakes:] Hello...
[Kirk:] Hey... I got some stuff I need to talk to you about
Dm9
Lately, pastor I've been...having all these crazy kind of dreams
 Bb                                  C
It's hard to sleep, I can't eat...scary, you know
[Jakes:] I know what you mean
             Dm9                                C                                              Bb
[Kirk:] I mean, every since that Tuesday, seems like life's just getting real strange
[Jakes:] I hear ya
Anthrax, terrorist attacks and... I ain't even trying to get on no plane
[Jakes:] I feel ya
                 Dm9                                                     C
[Kirk:] ...and you know when I try to pray, there's a voice that telling that God's not real
[Jakes:] You know that's just the enemy
[Kirk:] Yea, but you ain't feelin' me
[Jakes:] No son, I know just know you feel...
Gsus/Eb                                                                                Asus
See, just because I preach and teach don't mean I don't get scared sometimes
             G2/B                            A7/C#
[Kirk:] yea, whatever, but you T.D. Jakes
[Jakes:] Well, then I don't make mistakes...
[Kirk:] Well...
[Jakes:] Now, let me tell you what's on my mind...
 
When your smile is gone (He cares)
[Kirk:] Yea, but I feel so alone (He's there and...)
[Jakes:] Although, your heart is heavy, God said: (every burden I will bear)
[Kirk:] See, but you don't know my (my pain)
And I'm getting so sick and tired of all (this rain)
I just got laid off, and to top it off the rent's due, so tell me what I got to gain?
[Jakes:] Well, see, trials come to make (you strong)
Storms won't last (last long)
[Kirk:] But how can I trust God in all this mess?
[Jakes:] Well, see that's the reason for the song
See, wherever you go there's one thing ya got to know
God, is right there by your side (weeping may endure for a night)
And he told me to tell you everything (everything's gon' be alright)

So thank you for calling...it's always good to hear from you
[Kirk:] yea, but...
[Jakes:] But I gotta go now
[Kirk:] wait a minute...
[Jakes:] I got another call on line 2
[Kirk:] But I ain't through

[Kirk:] See I'm sick and tired of all these church folk talking about stuff ain't as bad as it seems
See, y'all don't feel my pain...
[Jakes:] I don't have pain...?
[Kirk:] I don't see how ...you on the cover on Time magazine
[Jakes:] See, but you're looking at now and you don't know how I struggled and what I've been through
[Kirk:] Yea, whatever...
[Jakes:] Now, you crossed the line...
[Kirk:] I'm just speakin' my mind
[Jakes:] O.K. so let me speak mine, too (Hmmmmmm)
I've made some mountains, I've seen some valleys, I've even had to cry sometimes
Like when I lost my mother
[Kirk:] Your mother?
[Jakes:] My mother:
[Kirk:] I'm sorry...
[Jakes:] No son...that's fine: ...see life is full of ups and downs but God said
(the storm won't last long)
[Kirk:] But how'd you make it through?
[Jakes:] Boy, I thought you knew...it was His (love that kept me strong)
When your smile is gone (He cares)
[Kirk:] But I feel so alone (He's there and...)
[Jakes:] Although, your heart is heavy, God said...(every burden I will bear)
[Kirk:] yea, but see...y'all don't feel (my pain)
And I'm getting very sick and tired of all this (this rain)
Just got laid off, and to top it off the rent's due, so tell me, Bishop, what I gotta gain?
[Jakes:] Didn't I tell you trials come to make (you strong)
And those old storms won't (last long)
[Kirk:] How can I trust God in the midst of all this mess?
[Jakes:] See that's the reason for this song
Wherever you go there's something ya got to know (God still cares)
(weeping may endure for a night)
And he told me to tell you (everything's gon' be alright)
