Blessed Be Your Name

Blessed Be Your NameA song sung by Matt Redman, a prominent British worship leader. There are many versions of this song, of which my favourite is the one by Tree 63. The first video is the song itself, and the second is the instructional. Tabs are below.

Alex said...

It is indeed a beautiful song. Thanks for the teaching.

To play along the orignal song by Matt Redman) I think you have to use capo 2.

spencer said...

can u teach that fancy stuff u do on the d at the end of the chorus plz?

Graham Choo said...

Hey Spencer, I guess the part you're talking about is the chord change from F#m, E, D. Actually, how to play it is explained in the instructional video. But simply, it's just strumming downstrokes

BIGSACK said...

wow i just found your blog on youtube, god gave you such a gift that you might share it with others, you are saving a lot of souls my friend God Bless

Andreas said...

Hi Graham!

I don't understand how you do the f#m, it doesn't look like my chordcharts that I have. Please help me because I would really like to know

Graham Choo said...

Hey Andreas, yeah the F#m played in the video is not conventional, but it still sounds similar to the standard F#m.
If you're unfamiliar with it, you can play the standard F#m. Otherwise, the tabs are given for the chord. It's like an inverse B pattern.

Andreas said...

Hi again Graham!

i'm very new to playing guitar so can you please explain how to read your chordchart of the f#m. Would really appriciate that

Graham Choo said...

Hey Andreas, you can find some useful tips on how to read tabs from these 2 links:

Hi Graham,

I'm trying to learn this song directly from your instructional video. By watching you play the song, it seems like the strumming pattern changes when you stop muting the sound with your palm and you play at regular volume. Is the strumming pattern still DDD DDD DD? I haven't been able to make the pre-chorus sound similar using that strumming pattern. Sorry for the newbie question. This is the first praise song I'm learning to play in full.

Graham Choo said...

Hey Andy, you can follow the PDF that I created for the lyrics and strumming pattern.
For the pre-chorus, it's still the same strumming pattern as the verse, but with less or no palm muting.
Take note of the accents at the start and after the spaces:
Ddd Ddd Dd

Hope that helps! God bless.
