joy of the Lord is my strength

Well, this song, joy, posed some new challenges – including a drum solo.

In psalm 7 David uses the word shiggaion in the title of the psalm, which is from the word shaga “to reel with drink”. It is also used to denote strong emotion and impassioned imagination. Psalm 7 is considered a psalm of lament. I am using the term in joy ( more the impassioned / strong emotion direction). One clear point in all of this is that we should have joy in our walk with God. We were created for delight, and if we do not get delight in our relationship with God – we will seek it in carnal pleasures (Aquinas). I find it an honor to serve Jesus Christ. I have joy in my walk with him, and I celebrate being able to praise him.  I had a lot of fun making this song – and hopefully you’ll enjoy it too! Note – this song may be a bit much for some – no offense intended. Go to music > joy.

Fancy schmancy biography in the about section. People that spoke of themselves in the 3rd person always made me nervous (so i changed it hahahahahahahha). I might have to find a place between this and “loves ethnic food and outdoors” type schlock.

I will probably finish the latest tune this weekend…God willing. It will be interesting in that it will be a tune with a drum solo in it…(I can hear the groans already)…well – don’t forget I am a drummer at heart, and it will be a short solo OK? 40 seconds tops…how’s that for self control? Finally – the drum groove download page will commence when I get the copyright stuff sorted out.

Only For You

I thought I’d experiment with a kind of vocal thingy – you might call it a falsetto, although I think the official description would be “óut of my range”…I think it scared my wife…she listened to it and said “why are you doing this” – I didn’t have a good answer. For now I’ll use psalm 33:3 for direction;

Sing unto Him a new song, play skillfully with a loud noise.

..and whether or not it is skillful can remain a point of discussion. I hope you enjoy it (hey – that’s one reason I do this – put a smile on that beautiful face of yours…) have a good one.
