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.

Why I Don't Want America To Come Back To God 

I stumbled across this article a little while ago. It was written by an American Theologian - Brandon Andress - and certainly the title got my attention. Having read the article, I believe that the points Brandon raises, would apply to any nation, not just the USA.

God Be In My Head 

These lyrics were written in 1558. Tricia remembers singing them when she was at school. Earlier this year, she suggested that we might be able to write a new melody for the lyrics.

Apologies for the odd bad note but hopefully, it will enable you to learn the song.  Download Chord Chart

We have just finished working on some additions to the website. There is now a complete list of my albums, together with an online store and some free downloads. You can also listen to some of my 'Classic' songs from the back catalogue. Enjoy!
