Ganid (Loonie)

Artist: Loonie featuring Ron Henley
Words and Music: Loonie / Ron Henley
Release: 2018
Tempo: 120 beats per minute
Key: Am
Details: Isa itong diss sa dating manager nila na si Josef Amarra. Hindi lang si Loonie ang gumawa nito pati rin si Abra sa kanta nila ni Shanti Dope na Apoy. Di ko alam ang nagyari sa Artifice o ang label na dinadala nila subalit ang mga naunang taon, maganda naman ang kinalabasan dahil nagkaroon naman talaga ng mga pag labas ang rapper na sila, Apekz, Ron Henley, Abra at Loonie sa mainstream. Pero siguro ganoon talaga at nalalaos o nawawala ang hype sa publiko kaya humihina ang guesting at medyo mararamdaman nila ang cut o percentage ng manager nila at maiisip nila na mas mabuting mag solo nalang sila dahil wala silang kahati.

Pero syempre hindi ko rin naman ililihis na baka nga naman malaki talagang kumuha to si Josef Amarra na hindi na naayon sa kinikita ng mga talent nya. Ganon pa man parehas naman nilang napakinabangan ang isat isa. At dahil nga sa pangyayari may bago tayong soundtrip.

Basta Loonie idol yan. Sarap pakinggan ng mga kanta nya. Iyon bang bitaw nya palang musika na. Tapos namnamin mo pa iyong mga lyrics ng kanta nya. Astig talaga tong rapper na to. Ok narin na hindi nya nag tunog Gloc-9 o iyon bang tungkol sa lipunan o nangyayari sa kasalukuyan. Dahil isa lang dapat ang maging Gloc-9 at para pumunta sa ganung serye ng pag rarap kailangan nya munang mag hintay mawala si G9 parang nanyari kay Francis M. Isa lang ang pwedeng maging master rapper, kaya nga si Andrew E iba ang tinahak.

Anyway lahat sila inspirasyon talaga sa rap genre, ibat-iba ang sinisimbolo nila at lahat ng iyon ay malulupit. Continue reading Ganid (Loonie)

Grace Got You (MercyMe)

Artist: MercyMe
Words and Music:
Album: Lifer
Release: 2017
Tempo: 88 beats per minute
Key: D
Details: If you know that we have back up, I guess there should be nothing to worry about. And not only a mere back up but a Grace from God. His unmerited favor to all of us.

This world will hurt us and give us pain but the grace of God is still sufficient to all of us thus there is always a reason to go on. That is what this song want to remind us as Christian while still waiting for Jesus to come back. Continue reading Grace Got You (MercyMe)

Grace To Grace (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong Worship
Words and Music: Chris Davenport and Joel Houston
Album:  Let There Be Light
Release: 2016
Tempo: 120 beats per minute
Key: C
Details: As christian we believe that grace is a free and unmerited favor of God. This is not base on what we did. Grace is beyond our ways. For me it is not about doing good and you will get the riches of Earth. We can consider grace even on poor or those who are in suffering. But of course doing good will result a positive reaction rather than doing evil. In the end, God’s grace is for everyone and no one can say to his neighbor that you are bless and he is not. We are all blessed through Jesus Christ.  Continue reading Grace To Grace (Hillsong)

Greatest Of These (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong United
Words and Music: Benjamin Hastings, Joel Houston, Michael Fatkin
Album: Wonder
Release: 2017
Tempo: 59 beats per minute
Key: E
Details: This is my favorite song from the album. I really like the melody together with the message of the song. It is based from John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” 

It is clearly that Jesus did it all for love – a greater love. Have you ever questioned why God let it happened to Jesus. If He can save the world in an instant. If He can do everything He please without sacrificing His only Son. But that is not the way He can show love. Love needs a sacrifice, a sacrifice of most important thing  for a person – his life.

In my tough days, I also thought of why I should do this, why I need to sacrifice a lot for this life. I can live my life the way I want to be. There is no more of don’t do this or do that. Sometimes I felt of giving up but because of Love I still have a courage to continue. I get tired, but I know Jesus did better than anything I did.

Garments (Cory Asbury)

Artist: Cory Asbury
Words and Music: Cory Asbury, Nate Moore & Tony Brown
Album: Reckless Love
Release: 2018
Tempo: 79 beats per minute
Key: F#
Details: The song telling us that despite how negative we see things, still God will make it positive beyond we can imagine. Because God is God of positivity even in sacrifice He saw it as triumph for us.

Regarding with this song and just like with any of his songs, it is easy to play with only 4 chord progression. What I found difficult Cory Asbury’s songs are being on key of B. For beginners, it is not easy to play a song with F# and B throughout the song. It requires finger endurance to keep the song of chords accurate. To make it easier to play you can put a capo on 2nd fret and play the song in D-E-F#m-A chord progression. Continue reading Garments (Cory Asbury)

God So Loved (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong Worship
Words and Music: Matt Crocker & Marty Sampson
Album: There Is More
Release: 2018
Tempo: 70 beats per minute
Key: A
Details: I remember when I was attending a prayer meeting, one of the elders said that John 3:16 is the heart of the bible. This is a declaration of God on his love to the world. A world that is cruel to other people. A world full of hate and pain. We often hear “a cruel world” that will makes us think that there is God.

But to this world, God gave His only Son. Do we understand what is this cost?

As a father of two,  I don’t know what will happen to my life if any bad things to any one of them. And I’m very sure I will not do the same, sacrificing my own for other people. It would be so hard, God understand it is so hard. Even with Abraham, He didn’t want to happen it to him.

But He did to Himself through Jesus. Can we understand how we can measure that Love? Again, He did it because he so loved the world that He gave His only Son for our salvation.

Just a reminder with the verse on “to the cross” and “upon the lord” you can insert a “D” chord on it in case you are playing alone so it will not become blank. But in case of how Hillsong play the part, instead of inserting a chord, they make a delay and play an “E” chord.

That is how I listened to it and you can insert both D and E chords as long as you are able to play it in timing. Overall, this song is easy to play with very powerful message reminding how God love us. Continue reading God So Loved (Hillsong)
