A song I would like to learn to play is "Breath of Heaven" by Amy Grant. I have sound track but would love to play on my guitar, the only problem is I see on internet that the first two lines have only one chord Bm, but I hear more than that and do not know what they are. When you have time would you be able to do that one. Thanks, and God bless you and your family for the talents that you are sharing with others. Anne

Thank you so much for the many times you've blessed me!
I'm a teacher and I need to be ready for a school Christmas concert in 4 weeks.
I've decided on Born in Bethlehem and Jesus Light of the World by ThirdDay except I can't figure out how to strum!
Your help would be greatly appreciated!

THANK YOU Graham! Are they both 4/4 timing? For some reason I can't keep the timing when I play and sing at the same time. I know I'm helpless!!!

Graham Choo said...

Hey Annie, I'm not good with beats because I did not learn music formally, but this is what I hear for the 2 songs:
1. Born In Bethlehem - 1 2, 1 2, 1 2 3 4
2. Jesus, Light Of The World - 4/4

Could you do Christmas shoes by Newsong? I would really like to learn how to play it. Also it is a beautiful song.

Hello. I was wondering if you could do your own rendition of 'Carol of the Bells'. It would be really nice to play this Christmas :)

Hi Graham, do you know the chords for "Celebrate His Birth" from the album of "Emmanuel Has Come"?
