Let's learn "Another in the Fire" on the Guitar together 🙌🏻

Nov 12, 2019

Have you heard the song “Another in the Fire” from Hillsong UNITED?

Chances are if you like to listen to modern worship music, you have…

And chances are you, you’ve been brought closer to the Father through the song as well.

Some of you may even know how to play the song at this point already.

But have you taken a minute to read the lyrics?

The lyrics in Chorus 2 contain such powerful truths that I so badly want you and I to remember and rest in today:

“And should I ever need reminding

What power set me free 

There is a grave that holds no body

And now that power lives in me”

How incredible that the power of God displayed through the cross to take on sin and displayed through His defeat of the grave,

Lives inside each one of us as believers. 

We call a lot of things incredible in this world, but that truly lives up to the meaning of the word!

Your Father loves you, cares for you, and wants you and I to trust the power that He has in...

A really special guitar tutorial for you ❤️

Oct 30, 2019

Think about this for a moment…

Before a sound, let alone a single word, ever left your mouth, 

Our Father was singing over you.

Before you were ever able to take a breath, 

He breathed His life into you.

When you were not a friend, but a foe, 

The Father in His great love fought for you.

And when you feel you are not worthy,

Jesus paid it all for you.


The words above spell out the love the Father has for us as written about in the amazing worship song, “Reckless Love.”

Can you imagine a greater love than this?

Can you fathom a deeper level care?

A love and care not based on anything you’ve done,

But based on the fact that you are - simply - LOVED.

Ephesians 2 says that we are, “Saved by grace, through faith - and this is not from yourselves…”

But is a “gift of God  - not by works…”

What a gift!!

The gift of salvation from God, our gracious Father who loves us more than we can even comprehend.

I want...

If you love Hillsong’s “King of Kings”, check out this Piano Tutorial!

Oct 30, 2019

Happy Thursday!

It’s almost the weekend! Woooo!

I absolutely love getting to learn new music and especially new music that is requested by our private Rooted Music Worship Community Facebook group

They recently requested that we teach the song “King of Kings” from Hillsong Worship, 

So I learned it and created a tutorial for it. 

But, what struck me more so than the song or melody, were the lyrics…
And I wanted to share them with you today…

Specifically Verse 4’s lyrics, which come in after Verses 2 & 3 speak about Jesus’ death and resurrection:

“And the Church of Christ was born
Then the Spirit lit the flame
 
Now this gospel truth of old
Shall not kneel shall not faint
 
By His blood and in His Name
In His freedom I am free
 
For the love of Jesus Christ
Who has resurrected me”

The very act of Jesus death, was the same act that brought about freedom for you and for me.

What an amazing truth to sing about,...

If you LOVE Lauren Daigle, don’t miss this piano tutorial! 🎹🎉

Sep 12, 2019

 

If you ever needed a reminder that God has GOT YOU, this is the song to do it!

We all go through our week to week regimens, focusing on the good, the bad and the ugly in our lives…

Completely losing sight of the fact that God is with us every step of the way.
And not only is He with us, He cares for you and for me.

If he clothes the flowers of the field and makes sure even the birds have food to eat,

How much more will He provide for you?

You, who are made in His very image…

You, who are loved so much by God Himself that He gave His Son to take on the bad and ugly in our lives…

You, who are actually called God’s SON or DAUGHTER…

Cling to that truth today and as you do, what better way to constantly remind yourself of that incredible truth, than by learning a song that underscores the idea perfectly!

The song “Everything” from Lauren Daigle is such a powerful song of remembrance and gratitude to our Father, 

And is one that...

Aug 10, 2019

Learning to play the piano can be difficult! 

There are definitely challenges as you get started, right?

Learning to play and actually be fluent playing between all of the different notes on the piano (there are 88 of them)...

Learning to do two different things with each hand…

Let alone, learning the keys of music and becoming fluent as you play between them.

The challenges are real, but the help we want to provide to you is too :)

Learn to Play "Our God" on Piano! 🎹

Jul 29, 2019

Learning to play different songs easier and more efficiently is a skill that really takes root after continuous practice and repetition.

The knowledge of the concepts needed to be play these songs and needed to execute playing songs like this is a must have…

But what it really boils down to is COMFORT.

Comfort with the material being played in the song, yes and even comfort with the use of the different aspects of music theory in a particular song.

But more so comfort with the keys of music, their chords, the inversions going along with those chords as well as other modifications to them…

Feeling like you can, on a dime, transpose a song to another key if needed…

Knowing some of the “tendencies” that occur in worship music that can be learned and actually result in a much easier path towards playing whatever song you want!

If you’re not quite there yet, rest easy, we all have something we need to grow and develop in.

But, if you’re not...
