Guitar I Class Materials from 2/7/13

We worked on music for the recital on February 26 at 6:00 PM.  All students will need to have a capo so if they haven't yet gotten one please do so ASAP.  After class had ended I was advised that one of the songs we started on this week has been cut from the program so no need to worry about "Jus' Plain Blues".  Of course, you are welcome to keep working on it if you like.

This Week:

  • Review
  • Blessed Be Your Name
  • Power Rock

Psalm 138: In the Sight of the Angels for Sunday, February 10, 2013

by Matt Retz on Thursday, February 7, 2013 8:44 AM
In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.
I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,
for you have heard the words of my mouth;
in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
I will worship at your holy temple
and give thanks to your name.

In addition to review we did some music theory this week and looked at the major scale.  We also worked on the first two songs for our recital on February 26 at 6:00 PM.  Please try to obtain a capo ASAP.  We will need them for the 26th and I would like to rehearse with them prior to the performance.

This week:

  • Get capo
  • Review and songs in the book that you are still uncomfortable with
  • Practice "grabbing" chords (especially F)
  • Blessed Be Your Name
  • Power Rock (entire song)
  • Read and Watch Unit 3 (ps 26-27)

Psalm 71: I Will Sing of Your Salvation for Sunday, February 3, 2013

by Matt Retz on Friday, February 1, 2013 8:32 AM
I will sing of your salvation.
In you, O LORD, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In your justice rescue me, and deliver me;
incline your ear to me, and save me.
