The Lost Chord - Video 

I must apologise for making a mistake with my last posting about The Lost Chord. Many of you have responded with suggestions but I forgot to mention that I use a G7th Short Cut Capo on the 2nd fret of my guitar, so the notes being played are E, D, E, B, E, E. Check out the video below.
 


The Lost Chord 

I had a great time at Mission Worship last weekend, when I did a late night concert with Dave Bilbrough and Chris Bowater. However, during our rehearsals for the event, we had a great problem in figuring out what this guitar chord is called. I use it in the song 'To be In Your Presence', in the chorus. Chris has been musically trained at the Royal School of Music, but even with all that, he struggled to find a name for this one. Suggestions please.......

Trivia Quiz - Can You Help?

The Lord's Prayer In Aramaic 

A friend just sent me the link to this video of The Lord's Prayer in Aramaic, chanted by Father Serafim Bit-Kharibi and parishioners in Qanda, Georgia. This parish is made up of a group of people of Assyrian descent who belong to the canonical Georgian Orthodox Church. Beautiful harmonies and very different to what we call 'sung worship' in the West. Click on the image below, to play the video.

Notes From An Accidental Musician – Part 1 

I am not sure if this will be a regular posting. I guess it depends on whether or not the things I write about will resonate with anyone. 

My wife Tricia, often says that we are accidental musicians, when we compare ourselves to some of the immensely talented songwriters and musicians that we know. The kind of people who eat, sleep and breathe music. Who are always buying instruments and gear. Who always have music playing in their homes and cars. This, we are not! 

We are a bit of an enigma as we have…
