Cool man!Thanks Studio!
You are very attentive and observant, thanks for noticing.
I just love acoustic guitars, and simply guitar stuff.
I am recording in my music room I keep adding guitar things into.
I like Taylors and Martins, and I am using my Taylor K-14CE on this song. I also love the electric sound of my Telecaster I just bought two months ago.
I am a music minister for our church here in WA, and I love to play around with melodies, and come up with a song. The melody comes first, then I plug in the storyline and lyrics. Writing these kind of songs is a way to spread the good news, the gospel, the way, the truth, Jesus Christ.
Thank you for asking, and for your time.
You are very kind.
There are those who will criticize some one who writes like you as being to wordy and deep in the lyrics for modern worship but that is exactly what speaks to me and many others. Like this a lot.Hi Ascension,
Thank you so much for such humbling comments. I like both your videos you shared. I am really looking to play with other worship leaders in my area, but not been able to hook up with one at this time. I have been singing with my wife in our church services locally. Again, thanks for the kind words and very inspiring comments.
Hi PastorJay,Thanks Rene. Great song. I really enjoyed it.
I don't play in often in worship these days, but I'm still involved in worship planning.
So I'm always thinking about how a song might be used in worship.
I'm curious how you think this song would be used within the structure of a service?
And I'm also curious about the range. I didn't figure out the lowest and highest notes, but it seems like a wide range to me. Can you put it in a key that would be singable by most of the congregation, or is it more of a "special music" kind of piece? Thanks.
grace and peace,
Hi JuneauMike,Nice, I like it. Unique chord voicings and I like the melodic lilt of the lyrics. The Cry Baby, Cry intro thing there also very cool, I love that chord progression.
I especially like that you are writing original expressions of faith. Who says the Devil has all the good music. Keep going, man.
I see no reason why our faith shouldn't drive art in the way secularism has for my entire lifetime. I know that Christians are often uncomfortable with artistic expression, especially associated with faith (we love the hymns and the classic paintings for some reason, but seem ambivalent towards contemporary artistic expression). P&W needs more of what you are doing. Thanks.Hi JuneauMike,
Thanks for the likes, and the "good music". At this point, I am just expressing my beliefs and faith, and trying to spread the word to the world via music and songs. Thanks for your kindness and honesty.
I am just glad to have found this forum. You are correct, for some reason, the topic of faith and religion historically divide peoples. And this pandemic really points out the need for unity and caring for neighbor. This present time also highlights the human flaw of clan"ism" and the ugliness of "superiority", which bleeds over in the realm of faith and religion.I see no reason why our faith shouldn't drive art in the way secularism has for my entire lifetime.

Great to hear from a Washingtonian.
I am in Whidbey Island. I had a short stay in Bremerton in 2009 to 2011, and had some guitar lessons in Silverdale. The Kitsap peninsula is a wonderful place to live. Are you currently playing music in your area?
Thanks for your feedback.
