Lesson learned. Don’t wait until the end of the month to finalize an arrangement. Life will get in the way (in this case labor day weekend) and before you know it, it’s the first of the month and the video isn’t ready. Sorry peoples. I’ll get it done this week. Scout’s honor.
In order to beg for your forgiveness, I submit to the court: “Be Still My Soul” with a little bit of “I Know That My Redeemer Lives” sprinkled in. Some people may have heard this already. I did it this past February for a couple of friends that were going through some really hard stuff – predating MormonGuitar.com. So if you knew me before, you might have heard this already. But if not, I hope you like it.
I’ve always loved “Be Still My Soul.” You can just feel the personal anguish in the lyrics and melody. We’ve all been there, trying to calm yourself down. Telling yourself everything will be alright, even though at the moment things just aren’t. So how could I not couple a hymn like that with “He lives to silence all my fears. He lives to wipe away my tears. He lives to calm my troubled heart.”?
Since originally posting this to Youtube, I’ve had a lot of people email and ask if I had transcribed it. So as an extra bonus to make up for the delay this month, I’ll transcribe it and do a lesson on it at the same time as I do it for “If You Could Hie to Kolob.”
So stay tuned. Arrangements will always be posted on the first of each month. Don’t get discouraged by this month’s delay. But every once in a while, stuff happens.
