This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday. Our family will be going to church and probably catch the early morning service. Then head back home for a time of fellowship and food with family and friends. How will you be spending your day? Hopefully, it will be a relaxing and inspiring one for you.

Perhaps you are a young musician who will be serving on the worship team at your local church. There are so many songs appropriate for the upcoming holiday. This one, Hosanna, is very popular and it's one of my favorites by Hillsong. Are you familiar with it?

Hosanna: Praise Is Rising


Hosanna: Paul Baloche (LadyDpiano.com)



Palm Sunday is fast approaching on us. By the way, Happy Spring! I always think of songs that have the lyrics, Hosanna in them around this time of year. Hillsong United did a song, Hosanna that I posted awhile back, along with the chords, but this new one is completely different. I like it! Do you sing it in your church? Here's the video:

A Mighty Fortress: Slash Chords

A new Easter season is fast approaching and I have been reflecting on many of the songs I have performed in the past. I have fond memories of playing in an open amphitheater near the beach for an Easter sunrise service outdoors. Other times I had played the keyboard on a strings setting along with other worship team members for 4 Easter services on a Sunday morning. How is it going to be for you this year? Will you be performing as a musician or participating with your voice in congregational worship? Will you be mixing upbeat contemporary songs, like O Happy Day and balancing the song list with a few slow, traditional music favorites?

Here are a few songs I have posted in the past with their corresponding chord charts.

Above All

Learn To Play The Wonderful Cross

Now Behold The Lamb

Praise Him In Advance


I thought I would share a traditional hymn with you and how I play it with the slash chords below.

Lyrics to A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (Verse 1) by Martin Luther

A mighty Fortress is our God,
A Bulwark never failing;
Our Helper He amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe
Doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great,
And, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.

Creating An Intro by Champ Champagne

Jazz Lead Sheets by Champ Champagne


I was looking through one of my Jazz magazines and came across an interesting article on introductions by Champ Champagne.

I have written earlier posts on the subject and you can find them here:

Part One Intros with Dominant Chords
Part Two Intros with Arpeggios
Part Three Last Phrase as Intros
Part Four Chord Progression Intros

The Introduction


"A preliminary part of the proceedings, containing explanatory or other useful matter bearing on the subject. In popular music, the subject can be the rhythm, the melody, or the harmony.

For now, let's proclaim the melody. This is best done by using a small fragment of a tune. We could call our quote from the Beginning, the Middle Part (Bridge or Release) or the Closing Section of the melody. Here comes the opening statement of A Weary Traveller.

D, Eb, G, F

BbAD/F, Bb, C, Eb (Bb maj7)

Eb/D, G... GCF/A, C (Eb 6/9)

Ab9, G7+, Gb 13, F7, F7+(b9),  F 9/6

The smallest recognizable musical unit is called a Motif. A fun way to preface the song is via a capsule comment. Listen to what happens to this quaint quote:

"Quivering Quavers, Batman. He repeated the same note pattern!!!" Yes, Robin. He formed a melodic imitation within the major scale of Bb (more properly) called a Diatonic sequence). He also ended the intro with the Dominant 7th chord. This will lead him easily into the right tonality of the expected melody. The Dominant 7th chord is a fourth below the Key (or the Tonal Center), and acts as a musical steering wheel."

We can do the same thing in Waltz-Time:

D, E, G, F#

Gmaj7, C9, Eb 6/9, D7alt

You can do it! Practice simple Diatonic Sequences. The best way to introduce your mind to this form of Motivic Development is to stick with simple Chord Progressions. Take this Circular Progression in C.

Cmaj7, Am7, Dm7, G7

Here's a rather lengthy Motif:

G, A, B, C, B, C, E, F, E, D

There's More to this than meets the ear! This Motif can be segmented.

Fragment #1: G, A, B

Fragment #2: C, B, C, E

Fragment #3: F, E, D

Why should anyone do such a thing? What can be done with a three-note tune?

C, Am7
Bb9sus (Ab, C, Eb, F)
Bb7 (Ab, D, G, Ab)
A13 (C#, F#, Bb)
Ab13 (C, F, C, D)
G9sus, G13

That was fun! Want more? Just follow the bouncing notes?

C, Am7, F, Em7, Dm7, Db9, Dm7, G7

C, Bm7b5, E7, Am7, D7, G9sus, G7b9

wasn't that a super Intro? I have More for you!

C, Bm7, E7, Am7, D7, G9sus, G7 (b9)

What more can I say?" -- Champ Champagne

Champ Champagne has a book you can purchase through Amazon. (Fake Book). This book adds interest and excitement to Christmas classics through the use of chord substitutions, printed in red above the original chords. Playing tips, introductions, and endings are included for many of the songs. 


  The Real Chord Changes and Substitutions - Christmas Favorites (Fake Book)

Another resource:  More than 125 must-know jazz classics as arranged by Champ Champagne. Each tune is presented in melody line/lyrics/chord format, along with chord substitution above the original chord changes, plus intros and endings - making for a great way to explore these classic songs and all their possibilities!  http://www.jwpepper.com/Jazz-Lead-Sheets
