Biyak (Juan Karlos)

Artist: Juan Karlos
Release: 2019
Tempo: 60bpm
Key: G
Details: Matinding hit naman ‘to mula kay JK. Bagaman maraming syang kinakaharap na issue pero pagdating naman sa musika, panis ang lahat ng issue na iyon sa husay ng batang ito kumanta. Napaka unique ng boses ni JK na kahit na napaka simpleng kanta, kaya niyang lagyan ito ng buhay. Tulad nga ng Biyak, pansinin nyo ang chords sa baba, halos paulit ulit lang, simple ang instrumental pero pag dating sa vocals, sobrang astig ng kanta nito at gaya nga ng sinasabi ko, tulad ng mga na una nyang kanta, million views na naman ito.

Maleta (Gloc 9) ft. Julie Ann San Jose

Artist: Gloc 9 ft. Julie Ann San Jose
Words and Music: Gloc 9
Album:
Release: 2019
Tempo: 97
Key: G
Details: Maganda talaga hiphopan sa pinas ngayong taon. Matapos pumatok ang kanta ni Pricetagg na Kontrabida at ganon din ang Pauwi Nako, si Gloc 9 naman ang nag release ng single kasama si Julie Ann San Jose.

Para sa akin hindi ganon kadali ma hook sa kantang ito sa unang pakikinig hindi katulad sa ibang kanta ni Gloc 9, subalit meron paring tama ito sa tenga ng mga pinoy dahil sa malalalim na lyrics ni Gloc 9.

Tulad sa ibang mga rap na ibinahagi  ko dito, hindi ko na isinulat ang chord por chord ng verse dahil mas magiging mahirap para sa atin na sabayan ito. Madali lang ang dapat gawin, kunin lang timing ng kanta, tapos tugtugin ng paulit ulit ang chords na isinulat ko sa ibaba. Tuloy tuloy lang hanggan mag chorus. Dito dapat mong pakinggan ng ilang ulit ang kanta para sa tamang timing. Kung gitarista ka, alam mo o ramdam mo kung kelan ka mag papalit ng chords. Dapat mo lang tandaan kung anong chords ang susunod. Continue reading Maleta (Gloc 9) ft. Julie Ann San Jose

On My Way (Alan Walker)

Artist: Alan Walker ft. Sabrina Carpenter & Farruko
Release: 2019
Tempo: 91 BPM
Key: C#m
Details: A new song from Alan Walker. From the first time I heard the song I’m very sure that he was. The song also has a resemblance with Ignite. I don’t know why my mind hanging on that song while I’m working with On My Way.

This song is actually for PUBG as but what I also don’t get it is why my mind is on Fortnite while I’m in to this song. No joke but for me I really thought that it was for Fornite. Maybe the design of bluish pink-violet on the video made thought of that game.

For those who are going to play this song in acoustic or using their guitar. I recommend to listen first to the song carefully because how the you are going to change from chord to chord is bit difficult. It has fast timing especially on Spanish that is difficult from some people to understand. So for me it would be easier for you to understand that song if you are going to listen to it carefully. Don’t worry too much with the lyrics, if you can master the timing, everything will come flawlessly regardless of understanding the meaning of verse 2 or not.

As for instance on the Hook part. To be honest I found it difficult to work with since it has two melodies playing simultaneously. So instead of knowing the exact chord alignment based on lyrics, I decided to just put the chord progress and play it for the entire part. Just like what I’ve said above, all you have to do is to understand timing and regardless of lyrics, everything will come to your mind easily.

Overall, this song is awesome and a good addition to Alan Walker’s collection. The song is perfectly for game. Actually for me, most of Walker’s songs are good music background for streaming video games or vlogging game related content. Continue reading On My Way (Alan Walker)

Kontrabida (Pricetagg ft CLR)

Artist: Pricetagg featuring CLR
Album: Barcode
Release: 2019
Tempo: 86 BPM
Key: C#m
Details: Actually nagawaan ko na ito ng review, bago nabahagi ang lyrics at chords ng kanta. Marahi nga may hype ngayon si Pricetagg dahil sa laban nya sa Sunugan kaya masasabi mong dahilan kung bakit nilaanan ko ng oras ang kantang ito. Pero actually maganda naman talaga iyong kanta lalu pa ang collaboration nila ni CLR, sarap pakinggan ng kanta ito. Sobrang chill.

Pagdating naman sa pag tugtug ng Kontrabida, madali lang naman ang chords nito. Actually tatlo lang ang chords nito at paulit ulit lang sa buong kanta. Kaya nga alam ko madali lang din para sainyo tugtugin ito. Gusto ko sanang ilagay ang alignment ng bawat chords pero mahirap sa part ko. Mas madali kung pakinggan nyo ung kanta ng paulit ulit at malalaman nyon ang tamang timing sa pagpalit ng chords. Uulitin ko, tatlong chords lang sa buong kanta, isa lang ang pattern sa verse, tag, hook, etc.

Gusto ko nga rin sabihin na itong lyrics na ito ay base sa Wish Bus at meron itong bahagyang pagkakaiba sa studio record doon sa part na explicit. Anyway hindi naman ganon kalaki ang pinagkaiba dahil parehas parin ng rima at beat at syempre ng chords ang kanta.

Good Grace (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong United
Words and Music:  Joel Houston
Album: People
Release: 2019
Details: This song has been released on 2018 but actually this would be part of their upcoming album for this year, People. As I worked with the chords, I can’t avoid being confused this song’s melody with With Everything.  I don’t know but it has a huge resemblance for me that leads me to confusion. Maybe, it’s because both songs are from Joel Houston.

As for the song difficulty, at first, it might get difficult for you how the chord will progress from A-Asus-A but if you are going to listen to the song carefully you will notice how chords change from A then going to Asus and the then back again to A.

Also I want to stress out with the instrumental part. I suggest to just feel the song and not to follow the exact chord alignment from the chanting part that even me took it hard to follow. So instead just know the chord pattern and play it with your feel with the timing on when you should change your chord.

I want you also get reminded that there are several versions of the song you can find online. And since I wrote this before the release of their full album, I based this song from their first released or known to be the live version taken last year. In case that there will be changes later on once they made a new version for the album, please be guided carefully that there will be changes on how the song progress from verse to chorus and so on. This also works on acoustic version of the song. So always be guided since Hillsong are releasing more than a single version which made a difference.

Overall, just like their other songs, the chord progression are still the same. Sometimes there will be a key differences but how you can play the song is still the same. Continue reading Good Grace (Hillsong)

Mulat Na Mata (Typecast)

Artist: Typecast
Words and Music: Steve Frank Badiola
Album:
Release: 2019
Tempo: 75 BPM
Key: Db
Details: Ito ang unang Filipino o Tagalog na kanta ng Typecast. Actually parang hindi sila ang kumanta o hindi lang sanay ang aming tenga na makarinig ng gantong tugtugan mula sa kanila.

Maging ang lyrics na kanta ay kakaiba rin, kung dati tungkol sa pagksawi sa pag-ibig, o emotional tungkol sa relasyon ang kanilang kanta, ngayon makabayan na o siguro eto lang ung dating ng lyrics para amin, pero kung ganon nga, siguro dahil isinabay nila ito sa panahon ng eleksyon. Ang maganda sa kantang seasonal o napapanahon ay hindi nalalaos. Katulad ng mga Christmas Song ha laging parang bago tuwing pasko. Marahil sa pagiging malapit ng Typecast sa Kamikazee ng mga nakaraang buwan matapos ang hiatus ng Kamikazee, napagisipan nilang gumawa ng ganto napapanahong awitin. Noong 2013, nag release ang Kamikazee ng kantang pinamagatang “Kunwari” na patungkol sa eleksyon. Sa kanta ito kasama nila ang gitarista ng Wolfgang, Manuel Legarda, Gloc-9 at Biboy Garcia. Sa totoo lang randam ko ang Wolfgang sa bagong kantang ito ng Typecast.

May kakaiba nga lyrics mula sa karaniwang tugtugna ng typecast, ganon parin naman sila magsulat kung lalim at husay ng pag susulat ng kanta ang babasihan. So kung tutusin natin overall Typecast parin, maging sa mga maliliit na detalye ng pagtugtug nila, ramdam parin ang kanilang tugtugan.

Pagdating naman sa kanta, madali lang tugtugin ang Mulat na Mata, kailangan mo lang pakinggan ito ng paulit ulit sa umpisa at pakiramdaman ang tamang pagpapalit ng chords dahil mabilis ito hindi tulad ng 4-bar chord progression ng ibang kanta nila.

Nirerecomenda ko na mag simula sa intro, kapain ang tamang strumming at palit ng chords dahil halos ang buong verse ay meron ganong timing maliban sa chorus na babagal ang pagpapalit ng chords.

Overall madali lang tugutgin, nakakangalay nga lang sa kamay kung acoustic ang gamit mo dahil nasa Db ang key nito. Para sa madaling paraan, maarin rin tugutgin ito gamit ang power chords tulad kung paano ang ibang kanta ng Typecast tinutugtug. Continue reading Mulat Na Mata (Typecast)

Whole Heart (Hold Me Now) by Hillsong

Artist: Hillsong United
Words and Music:  Joel Houston & Aodhan King
Album: People
Release: 2019
Details: The song is easy to play once you listen to it a couple of times. When I used to learn the chords, I noticed that there was a part that I really don’t need to play the entire chords. Just of for the intro, we can play an E for the entire bar and let the lead guitar play his part. But if you are going to play this song, with acoustic guitar, you should play the family chord of A or E-A-C#m-B so it will complete the harmony of the song.

In instrumental part, you need to play the intro part six times and for the seventh you need only to play E-A while the C#m and so on will proceed to chorus. See that the first chord in chorus is C#m. You can also listen to the song carefully to check the progress of the song. Also take note that Hillsong has different version so expect that there will be difference in how the song progress with verse, chorus etc. But regarding with the chords, they usually use the same chord progression so there is nothing to worry with the chords we indicated below.

As You Find Me (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong United
Words and Music:  Joel Houston, Matt Crocker & Benjamin Hastings
Album: As You Find Me
Release: 2019
Details: There is a version of this song where you just need to play on D for the entire verse 1 and 2. Actually that was the version I used to based this song, but after checking the chord, I played with different version and discovered both versions. Either way  both songs are in the key of D so it is totally the same when it comes to chord progression.

About the song, it has a very powerful and inspiring message. In times we feel that we are alone, that we are helpless, we can think of, if Jesus sacrificed himself to save us, how can He will leave us now especially we already accepted his gift of salvation. From the very moment, we should claim and Jesus will help us, every time as there is nothing in this world or in heaven above that we can do to separate us from Him. Continue reading As You Find Me (Hillsong)

Another In The Fire (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong United
Words and Music: Joel Houston and Chris Davenport

Details: The song was taken from Daniel 3:24 where an angelic man protects three men in furnace. It was Jesus stand with us through the trials of life and from the lyrics of the songs, it emphasizes that there is always a grace, a help when our is under fire or trials.

Fire also signifies a refining tool to know our pure our heart to God. In case that our worth is being tested, there is always we can assure, that we are not alone that Jesus is always in our side, helping us through the trials.

In addition, the song serves as single hit of Hillsong for 2019. It was first recorded on November 2019 and was commercially released on May 15, 2019.

Holding back the seas

Bridge
                        Am               F
I can see the light in the darkness
                  C                         G
As the darkness bows to Him
                           Am               F
I can hear the roar in the heavens
            C                                      G
As the space between wears thin
                         Am                              F
I can feel the ground shake beneath us
            C                               G
As the prison walls cave in
                                    Dm
Nothing stands between us

Nothing stands between us
