The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.
The law of the LORD is perfect,

giving wisdom to the simple.

In addition to cleaning up our G and D chords this week, we also played "Just Two Lonely Chords" from page 11 in the book with the DVD.  It got much better in a very short time which shows the value of spending 15-20 minutes a day practicing.

This week work on

  • G Chord - play each string, one at a time and get them all to ring clearly
  • D Chord - play each string, one at a time and get them all to ring clearly
  • "Just Two Lonely Chords" - Play along with the DVD.  Try to get all the way through.

Welcome back.  This week we learned about rythmic notation, note and rest values, practiced up on our G and D chords and played our first song.  I would like to encourage everyone to not only practice everyday for a MINIMUM of 15 minutes, but also to check out the DVD that came along with your book and play along with the song from the first lesson when you're ready.

This week:

  • G chord
  • D chord
  • Just Two Lonely Chords

 

Psalm 116: I Will Walk Before the Lord in the Land of the Living for Sunday, September 16, 2012

by Matt Retz on Monday, September 10, 2012 8:52 AM

I will walk before the Lord, in the land of the living.
I love the LORD because he has heard
my voice in supplication,
Because he has inclined his ear to me
the day I called.
