New Sheet Music: Spock’s Beard – June

Recently in the Spock’s Beard Facebook group there was a request for the chords of their marvelous song June. As you can see below, I had already played it several years ago, so now I took it upon me to write those chords down (and meanwhile correct everything I’ve played wrong before).
You can find them here, but keep in mind that this is only a basic chord sheet, so there are some things missing (like the move from Dsus2 via D to Dsus4 at the end of the intro).

The Actual Color

District 97 are probably my favourite young prog band, ever since I did lights for them at Das Rind last year. They are currently recording their third album, which is eagerly anticipated by me, and managed to finance it in spectacular six days on Kickstarter. Every backer receives amongst other great things my transcription of their song The Actual Color – available nowhere else so far – , so don’t miss your chance to be part of this great Kickstarter campaign. You still have twelve days left!

Take Cover #8

With this new song I am indeed switching to fortnightly intervals for my Take Cover series. So expect a new video only every second Saturday from now on.

Bound To Come Some Trouble
Music and Lyrics by Rich Mullins
originally recorded by Rich Mullins

As noted before, Rich Mullins is a huge inspiration for my life. This song is one of my favourites, and it always moves me deeply.
Rich was also probably my favourite lyricist – there’s so much truth in the things he wrote and said, and that’s especially true for this song.

I know there’s bound to come some trouble to your life
But that ain’t nothing to be afraid of
I know there’s bound to come some tears up in your eyes
That ain’t no reason to fear
I know there’s bound to come some trouble to your life
Reach out to Jesus, hold on tight
He’s been there before and He knows what it’s like
You’ll find He’s there
