WeWorship: Mighty To Save




She never left the Temple but stayed there day and night, worshiping God with fasting and prayer. -- Luke 2:37

I think that waiting marks one's life. It's challenging to wait for something and yes, sometimes it's just hard to wait on God. I'm reminded we're on His timetable, not ours. Perhaps you are waiting for God to reveal a more exciting and awesome plan for your life. Ask God to show you the potential of waiting on Him... God helps us learn to wait. In the meantime, let us worship Him for He is mighty to save! Do you love the song, too?

How To Play Something Beautiful: Gaither


Something beautiful: Bill and Gloria Gaither l LadyDpiano


Gaither and his wife, Gloria, have written many songs including:
 "The Longer I Serve Him,"
"The King Is Coming,"
 "Sinner Saved By Grace", 
"Something Beautiful,"
 "He Touched Me", "It Is Finished," 
"Jesus, There's Something About That Name" 
"I'm Gonna Sing"
 and "Let's Just Praise The Lord." 
Do you have a favorite?
Gloria Gaither often writes the lyrics while Bill writes the music, although composing is usually a collaborative project between the two. As of 2005, they had composed 600 songs and by 2012, that number had increased to over 700. For more information, visit Bill Gaither (gospel_singer).

Something Beautiful

Words and Music by William J. and Gloria Gaither

Key: Eb
Time: 4/4

Chorus


Eb       Ebdim   Eb           Bb7     Bbdim  Bb7
Something beautiful, something good

  Fm(maj7) Fm7 Bb7  Eb    Eb7
All my confusion He understood;

Ab                                           Eb/Ab    Eb   D/G7  Cm
All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife

Bb/Eb Ab6     Bb/Eb             Bb7                     Eb  Ab  Eb
But he made something beautiful of my life

Verse



               Eb                Ebmaj7
If there ever were dreams
                     Eb6          Ebdim
That were lofty and noble
Fm7                                                Bb7
They were my dreams at the start
                                       Fm (maj7)            Fm7
And the hopes for life's best were the hopes
             Bb7           Eb/Ab            Eb   Ebdim  Eb
That I harbored down deep in my heart
                Eb                            Ebmaj7
But my dreams turned to ashes
                Eb7                                         Ab                           Ab6
And my castles all crumbled, my fortune turned to loss
         Cm               F7              Cm7      F7
So I wrapped it all in the rags of life
        Bb/Fm7 Bb6  Bb/Fm  Bb/Eb  Bb7
And laid it at the cross

G                                      Csus2             C      G
This is the message of the cross, that we can be free 
                      Csus2                C           G
To live in the victory and turn from our sin. 
                               Am7   Csus2         C/E  G
My precious Lord Jesus with sinners you died. 
                         Am7             Csus2            D   C/D          G   C/D
For there you revealed your love and you laid down your life. 
 
 
Verse 2: 
 
 
This is the message of the cross, that we can be free. 
To lay all our burdens here at the foot of the tree. 
The cross was the shame of the world 
But the glory of God 
For Jesus, You conquered sin and You gave us new life. 

A: 
G             D                             C/D  G
You set me free when I came to the cross, 
                          D                          C/D         G
Poured out your blood for I was broken and lost. 
                   D               Em9
There I was healed and you covered my sin 
                       Csus2
It's there you saved me 
D  G
This is the message of the cross 
Verse 3: 
 
 
This is the message of the cross, that we can be free. 
To hunger for heaven, Lord, to hunger for Thee. 
"The cross is such foolishness to the perishing, 
But to us who are being saved, it is the power of God." 
 
 
Chorus B: 
You set us free when we come to the cross. 
You pour out your blood for we are broken and lost. 
Here we are healed and you cover our sin. 
It's here you save us. 
You set me free when I come to the cross. 
Pour out your blood for I am broken and lost. 
Here I am healed and you cover my sin. 
It's here you save me. 
This is the message of the cross.

Mighty Is the Power of the Cross


Mighty Is the Power of the Cross: Chris Tomlin l LadyDpiano


I love to sing this song and play these marvelous chords with sixteenth notes in the right hand, along with single bass notes in the left hand. I play the song in Bb and below you will find a chart for the guitar as well. I wanted to let my musician friends know that HearandPlay offers a great resource, Guitar301.

Do you have a favorite Chris Tomlin song? From a few former posts, you can take a look at Unfailing Love and Be Glorified for the chords. With Easter approaching towards the end of the month, I think I'll post more songs for Easter on my blog such as The Wonderful Cross and Amazing Grace.

How To Remember Larger Extended Chords


Extended Chords: LadyDpiano



What Are Chords?


Chords are defined as a combination of tones which blend harmoniously when sounded together.

Three toned chord is called a triad. Read more about The Three Primary Chords

Four toned chord is a seventh. Read about Voicing 7th Chords

Five toned chord a ninth. Check out my post on The 9th Chord

Six toned chord an eleventh.

Eleventh chords are a lot easier to remember, especially if you know your seventh chord. The easiest way to think of this chord is the Major chord + the "5" dominant seventh chord. In the key of C major, this is simply C major (C-E-G) under a G7 (because G is the fifth tone of the C major scale. Use its dominant chord, which is G7). So, C maj + G7 = Cmaj11 (CEGBDF)

Formula for Remembering Eleventh Chords

Major eleventh: 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11
Minor eleventh: 1 + b3 + 5 + b7 + 9 + 11 
(Cmin11: C Eb G Bb D F)
Dominant eleventh: 1 + 3 + 5 + b7 + 9 + 11 
(C11 : CEGBDF)

Dominant:

The dominant eleventh is identical to the dominant minor except for one change.
Major chord +b7 major chord = Dominant eleventh chord.
Instead of playing a minor chord at the bottom (like you did with this min11 chord, simply play a regular major triad. In  C major, this is Cmaj (C E G) under Bbmaj (Bb D F). Basically, 2 major triads stacked on top of each other. C11 =  Cmaj + Bbmaj

Seven toned chord a thirteenth. Finding Thirteenth Chords on Keyboard

The formulas for the three thirteenth chords:

Major thirteenth: 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13
Cmaj13: C E G B D F

The major seventh chord + 2 major chord = Major 13th chord.
Example: Key of C, C maj7 (CEGB) under Dmaj (DFA).
All played together (CEGBDFA) create a Cmaj13 chord.

Minor thirteenth: 1 + b3 + 5 + b7 + 9 + 11 + 13
Cmin13: C Eb G Bb D F A

Min seventh chord + 2 major chord = minor 13th chord.
Example: Key of C, Cmin7 (C Eb G Bb) under Dmaj (D F A).
Cmin13 = C Eb G Bb D F A (Cmin7 + Dmaj)

Dominant thirteenth: 1 + 3 + 5 + b7 + 9 + 11 + 13
C13: C E G B D F A

Dominant seventh chord + 2 major chord + Major thirteenth chord.
Example: Key of C, this is C7 (C E G Bb) under Dmaj (D F A)
C13 = C E G Bb D F A

Either way, play C on your left hand while playing a Bbmaj7 on your right hand.

L.H. / R.H.

C / BbDFA

This produces the same sound as a 13th chord, just without the third and fifth present. Notice the Bb is the 7th of C... the D is the 9th... the F is the 11th... and the A is the 13th.
