  New Song: Take This Cup
Posted by: faith101 - 05-28-2017, 12:58 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (4)

How is it that the bad times always inspire songs? Well, if that's the case, I'm going to be pumping out an album over the next few weeks. This is a song I wrote last week. Let me know what you think.

K. Need to change the thumbnail. Looks like I'm whistling and going cross-eyed....... lol.

Thanks in advance,

John

  What makes a congregational song singable??
Posted by: danielwead - 05-23-2017, 11:28 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

Hey all!

My name is Daniel and I am a grad student working on my masters degree in Music Theory at the University of Kentucky. I am very close to completing my research on congregational Christian song (it is a survey of hymns compared to gospel songs compared to contemporary worship music). Part of my thesis is coming up with 5 musical traits that every worship song must adhere to in order to be immediately participatory for the congregation. You all have a chance to participate in this research.

My question for you all is this:
What is the one musical trait you think marks a successful worship song from a less successful one?

Thank you so very much for your time in guiding this Kingdom research!
God bless,
-Daniel R.

  You Keep Healing Me
Posted by: Beagle - 05-20-2017, 03:05 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (7)

Here's a song I wrote while I was on a cruise ship to Alaska a couple of weeks ago.  The waves were probably 15 feet high or more on the journey from Seattle to Juneau!  the ship was rocking so hard it was difficult to walk.  and this was not a tiny ship, either.

All comments are welcome and will be considered.

You Keep Healing Me © 2017 Reece Bain

Verse 1
When the water's tall and white
And the ship is tossed about
Lord You calm the storm
Lord you set me right

Prechorus
You lift up my eyes
You heal me all my life!

Chorus
You keep healing me
You keep healing me
When I'm hurt and weak
You keep healing me
You keep healing me
You keep healing me
When I'm down on my knees 
You keep healing me.
You keep healing me.

Verse 2
I listen for Your voice
I look for Your eyes
Lord I hear You speak
Lord I see You smile

Prechorus

  Fertile Ground
Posted by: novice62 - 05-19-2017, 08:20 AM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (3)

ALL:  Here's one for your critique on how we might improve it.  Thanks!  Neil

http://www.soundclick.com/html5/v3/playe...i&newref=1


Fertile Ground
 
Words: Neil Sleevi & Dan Simmons
Music : Dan Simmons
 
Verse 1:
 
Jesus told about the farmer
Who went out into the field
Sowing seeds in expectation
Planning for a harvest yield
Some seed fell along the wayside
Where the path was hard and worn
And the birds swept down to steal it
The seed was quickly gone
 
Verse 2:
 
Then He spoke of stony places
Of shallow roots in shallow ground
Lacking depth those plants were withered
As the summer sun bore down
Some seed fell in thorny places
And it sprouted from the ground
But the thorns choked any traces
And the fruit was never found
 
Chorus:
 
But there is rich, deep soil… in the heart of fertile ground 
And the seed is firmly planted… where the grace of God abounds
O, the branches stretch t’ward heaven and the roots reach deeply down
The fruit grows in abundance…in a heart of fertile ground
 
There is rich, deep soil… in a heart of fertile ground 
Where the Word is firmly planted… the Spirit will abound
O, the branches stretch t’ward heaven and the roots reach deeply down
The fruit grows in abundance… in a heart of fertile ground
The fruit grows in abundance …in a heart...of fertile...ground

  What it means
Posted by: savedbygrace999 - 05-18-2017, 08:03 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (6)

UVerse 1: 

It's time to surrender, it's time to let go/ 
It's time I remember, what I already know/ 
That Jesus you love me, when I am weak/ 
And God you can see me, down on my knees/ 

Chorus: 

And just because I know You are who You say You are/ 
Doesn't mean I won't struggle, doesn't mean I won't have scars/ 
What it means is You're in the fire, what it means is you're in the flood/ 
What it means is there will be trouble, but You have overcome 

Verse 2: 

It's time to stop trying, to fix myself/ 
It's time to stop waiting, on everybody else/ 
It's a battle I'm learning, that you fight for me/ 
It's hard to remember that You've made me free/ 

Chorus: 

And just because I know, You are who You say You are/ 
Doesn't mean I won't struggle, doesn't mean I won't have scars/ 
What it means is you're in the fire, what it means is you're in the flood/ 
What it means is there will be trouble, but you have overcome 


Bridge: 
You've overcome my doubt and shame/
The fear that I could never change/ 
My constant need for perfection/ 
And the ache of rejection/ 
Jesus, You have overcome/ 


End: 
So here I am trusting, that I'm not alone/
Here I am believing what I already know/

  More Than Six Feet Deep
Posted by: tpistilli - 05-05-2017, 01:18 AM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (4)

Here's a completely re-recorded version of Six Feet Deep. It's  humorous Christian country song. Let me know what you think. Any help would be appreciated. I think the piano is too loud on 2nd verse.

https://soundcloud.com/ctonyp/more-than-...ep-revised

MORE THAN SIX FEET DEEP
 
Intro:  D D G A D
 
Verse 1:
             D                   
Gotta “COEXIST” bumper sticker
            G                                  D
On the back of my pickup truck
           D
And I pray before eatin’ my dinner.
           A                                             
Go to church when I’m down on my luck
          D
Gotta bobble-headed virgin Mary
            G                                     D
On the dashboard to keep me safe
         D               
But I lost a tooth in a fender bender
                 A                            D
When she flew right into my face 
 
Pre Chorus:
  Em           G                A
I try to have all my bases covered
              Em                   G                   A
But I'm finding out that it just ain’t it workin’?
 
Chorus:
D
What’s it all about
 
Why do I keep
G
Breathing in and out
                    
Eat, sleep, repeat
              D
'Cause I gotta know when I go
                      A
That it won't be….
                                         D D G A D (Intro)
More than six feet deep 
 
Verse 2:
Gotta hardback Gideon bible
That I stole from the Motel 6
But it's hard to read all those thee's and thou's
My minds just a bit too thick
Gotta double burger and a french fry
For the guy with a cardboard sign
Then I saw him leave about an hour later
In a car way better than mine 
 
Pre Chorus:
 
Chorus
