I Love You, Lord Sheet Music for Piano, Voice & Guitar
I Love You, Lord sheet music is a beautiful arrangement for advancing piano students. Accompanying the standard notation arrangements are guitar tablature sheets just right for beginners. See this music in the keys of F and G.
The piano arrangement starts out with a repeating rhythmic pattern using an open fifth chord. Right away you can see that your student needs the skill of counting dotted quarter notes!
Page 2 - a change in feeling
When the melody repeats, starting at the top of the second page, the left hand abandons the drumming feeling, and goes for long, flowing chords. The difference in the emotional effect is amazing.
That kind of alteration in the emotional dynamic is why I love changing up the hymnal version of any song over and over as the verses go on, making it a bit different each time, so it continues to sound somewhat fresh to the ear.
Two guitar tab sheets
Compare the two guitar tabs - they are BOTH very easy (that is, if your student can handle the F chord alright), but the tablature for the key of G, below, is AMAZINGLY simple. Open open, open open string!
And if your student isn't ready for the key of F, but wishes to play along with a pianist who is using the F arrangement, all they need to do is use a capo and play the three main chords of an easier key - perhaps the key of A, with its chords A, D, & E, or else the key of D, with its chords D, G, & A!
In fact, this would make an excellent "How-to-use-the-capo" lesson for your student...
So where are the download links?
Sorry - this music is copyrighted! I can SELL an arrangement, but I cannot give it away.
If you buy the digital music, you will have 3 sheets in the PDF:
2 pages of a piano arrangement, and a matching guitar tablature page.
This beautiful song book for piano & voice "Esther, For Such a Time as This", available as a digital download, tells the riveting story of the time when Jews in ancient Persia faced a foe named Haman, and how a brave young queen risked her life to save her people.
A good choice for a singing story-teller, an operatic group, a short theater production, or a class of children!
This is the perfect easy start for little pianists.
And when they start reading white-key notes on the staff, this is a fun easy resource to say each week, "Choose a new black-key song at home this week and figure it out to show me next lesson!" They will be spending more time at the piano.
