“Grave to Shudder” by Ike Ndolo

I was introduced a week or two ago to Ike Ndolo.  I still have no idea how to pronounce his name, either the first or the last one, but he sure has some great music.  The lyrics on “Grave to Shudder” are phenomenal!

Anyhow, it seems there are yet some things that Google does not know, and one of those things is the chords to this particular song.  But thanks to chordify.net and a bit of tweaking on my part, that will soon be changed; at the moment I publish this blog, the world wide web will no longer be ignorant.  Bwah ha ha ha!!!

Without further ado, below are the chords (as far as I and Chordify can tell, that is) for Ike Ndolo’s song “Grave to Shudder.”  Enjoy it.  Play it.  And go buy his CD.  The CD recording is much better than any of the free versions you can find on YouTube, and a worship leader like this deserves to have his work supported.  So buy his music!

Hundred Miles by Judah & the Lion

I’ve been really enjoying “Hundred Miles” by Judah and the Lion lately.  It’s easy to play, has simple lyrics, and is a ton of fun when it gets to the really fast part.  For your viewing enjoyment, the video is below:

You can find their latest album on Noise Trade, where you can get the songs for free.  But if you’re like me, you’ll want to support these guys and actually pay for the music:  iTunes, CD Baby, and Amazon.

Numai Prin Harul Tau – Sunny Tranca

As soon as I heard Sunny Tranca’s music, my heart went, “Oh, yeah!  This is worship!”  In Bucharest, it’s been hard to find good worship, free, expressive, heartfelt, passionate, clap-able and dance-able.  The best we’ve found has been at Raul Vietii–who always seem to stop right when they get *almost* to the point of a real, free heart connection to God during worship–and Elim.  And, of course, Piatra Vie!  (No bias here.  😀 )  (And, actually, we’re a long ways from where we want to be…  God, send us worshipers and musicians!)

I had begun to think Romanians just don’t understand what it means to worship passionately and freely.

Jon Thurlow – Strong Love

Recently, I’ve grown pretty well addicted to this song by Jon Thurlow.  It’s pretty simple lyrically and chord-wise, but it’s got such a happy sound to it that I totally love.  It’s a great reminder of the simple joy that’s ours simply because God chooses to love us regardless of how worthy (or unworthy) we may be.  🙂

For those interested, the chords are below, along with the strumming pattern I use.  (Sorry for the incorrect spacing on the chords; WordPress is not friendly when it comes to spacing things correctly.)

Behold the Lamb – Daniel Bashta and Harvest Bashta

The music of Daniel (and his sister Harvest) Bashta has really been ministering to me lately.  I love the passion and energy in the music.  It’s almost impossible to sit still while listening; either you want to bow down on your knees or get up and dance.  🙂  And I love how so much of the lyrics are drenched in Scriptural phrases and images if not word-for-word Bible.  “Behold the Lamb,” in particular, evokes images of the angelic choruses in the book of Revelation as well as the Lord’s Prayer in the gospels.  I love it!

As this song has been a great source of strength to my spirit lately, I wanted to share it with you.  Enjoy the chords and lyrics here, then head over to www.danielbashta.com for links to purchase his music.  (Sorry for how the chords and words don’t line up correctly.  I’m blaming wordpress ’cause the file on my computer is fine.)

Guitars and Cheese

I learned a valuable lesson today:  being a talented Tetris player is usually a very valuable asset when packing, however, if you’re flying with a guitar and cheddar cheese, you may want to put that skill on hold.

For my flight to Bucharest, I had two extra check bags plus a guitar, and when I called Aer Lingus, they told me it would cost me $240 extra for all the extra bags. So, I figured, “Hey, I can probably pack some of that into my guitar case and spread the rest among the other bags, cutting down on one extra bag.” And thus my guitar found itself packed with cheese, good old Wisconsin cheddar cheese.
