There Is Power: Lincoln Brewster



LadyDpiano: There Is Power (chords) : Lincoln Brewster

 If you're looking for a simple chord chart to There Is Power, you'll find it, here. Integrity Praise Music released the chords to the song in 2014 by Lincoln Brewster and Mia Fieldes. Here's what I'm playing and then I'll break it down for you.

Intro:
 
G2  Asus  Bm7  Asus  G2  Asus
 
 Verse 1:
 
Bm7    F#m     G2
 Where two or more are gathered in his name
 Bm7 F#m G2
 He is there, oh
Bm7   F#m      G2
 For all who come, who run to him in faith
 Bm7 F#m G2
 He is there


Chorus:
         G2                    A
There is power in the name of Jesus
Bm7   A   G2                  A
There is power, power in his name
          G2                   A
There is power in the name of Jesus
Bm7   A  G2                   A
There is power, power in his name


Verse 2:
 
Bm7       F#m    G2 
 No fear, no lie can stand against us now
Bm7  F#m G2
 He is here, whoa
Bm7       F#m    G2
 The word has come to silence every doubt
Bm7  F#m G2
 He is here


(Chorus)


Instrumental:
G    Asus  Bm  A  G  Asus  Bm  A


Bridge: 
 
G 
One name, one name can save
Asus      Bm         A
 One name breaks every chain
G
 One name, always
Asus       Bm  A    
 One name, Je-sus
G
 One name, one name remains
Asus       Bm        A
 One name, we will proclaim
G
 One name, always
Asus Bm
 One name


(Chorus x2)


Ending:
G           A
 Woah-ah-oh-oh
          Bm       A
 There's power in his name
G           A
 Woah-ah-oh-oh
            Bm   A    G2
 There's power in his name
G
 Woah-ah-oh-oh   Woah-ah-oh-oh


So, there's lots of octaves played in the left hand throughout the chorus. With the intro, the melody notes in the right hand have sets of sixteenth notes in a measure. It looks like this:

G2 = G/D, C#, D, A (single notes)
Asus = A/D, C#, D, A
Bm7 = B/D, A, D, C#
Asus = A/D, C#, D, E
G2 = G/D, C#, D, A
Asus = A/D, C#, D, A

This right hand pattern continues through the chorus and you can play it an octave higher, too.

Second verse goes like this:

Bm = B/F#BD
F#m = F#/F#AC#
G = G/GBD
Asus = A/ADE

If you're not familiar with this fast pace song, listen to it on YouTube 
I think you'll really like it.

I just love how the fast run towards the ending softens and fades away.

Enjoy!

The History of Reading Music Notes


 Treble Note Names: LadyDpiano


 So often I am asked if I would teach students online how to read music notes. I have done a few posts on the subject but oh my goodness... it would take a little awhile of repetitive teaching to go over the lines and spaces of the treble and bass staff. Then the rest is up to you to learn with practice over time. For some, especially with adults, you'll be a quick learner.

Anne Crosby is one of my favorite online teachers. These next charts are from http://pianoanne.ca/

PianoAnne Treble Clef Space Notes

  • Treble Clef Space Notes: F - A - C - E (I Look At You And I See Your FACE)

PianoAnne Treble Clef Line Notes

  •  Treble Clef Line Notes: E - G - B - D - F (Every Good Boy Does Fine)

PianoAnne: Bass Clef Space Notes

  • Bass Clef Space Notes: A - C - E - G (All Cows Eat Grass)

Piano Anne: Bass Clef Line Notes

  • Bass Clef Line Notes: G - B - D- F - A (Good Boys Do Fine Always)

There are so many free and low cost apps/games online for you to use on reading notes. The old fashioned way is to make or purchase flash cards. I love these powerful learning resources through repetition. If you're online a lot of the time and you are a visual learner, check out these great sites.

If your curious about the history of reading music notes, wikipedia offers some valuable information:

How To Play Worth It All

Ben Cantelon: Worth It All



Ben Cantelon, Jonathan Smith, Benji Cowart and Jason Ingram wrote a beautiful song, Worth It All from the album 'Everything in Colour' that I absolutely love. It's so very easy to play with a relaxed rhythm in the Key of E. The chords mostly played over and over are C#m7, A2, E, B.




 Intro


C#mA2  E (2xs)

Verse 1

C#m7  A2         E                        C#m7      A2          E
 All I am, Lord here before You, reaching out for more     
C#m7        A2      E          B/D#  C#m7     A2           E
You're the promise never failing, You are my reward   
  C#m7  A2         E
You are my reward 

Chorus

        A             E                  C#m7         B
I let go of all I have, just to have all of You
             A                       E               C#m7   B
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
            A                     E                 C#m7    B
Jesuseverything I've lost I have found in You
              A                       E           B
When I finally reach the end I'll say
                              C#m7  A2  E
You are worth it all                    

Verse 2

C#m7         A2       E                    C#m7        A2   E
 There's no riches, earthly treasure that will satisfy        
C#m7   A2     E              B/D# C#m7    A2        E
 Every longing for You, Jesus, set this heart on fire
C#m7    A2          E
 Set this heart on fire

Chorus

      A           E             C#m7        B
I let go of all I have, just to have all of You
       A               E            C#m7  B
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
       A               E           C#m7     B
Jesus, everything I've lost I have found in You
       A                 E           B
When I finally reach the end I'll say
                 A   C#m7 B     
You are worth it all
