Gospel Keys 202 Taught Me Fancy Jazz Chords

In Gospel Music on February 27, 2011 at 2:30 am

Gospel Keys 202 is a DVD tutorial set by Jermaine Griggs. He is the founder of HearandPlay.com. This set teaches how to master worship chords. I boast of learning fancy jazz chords and that is because though I have played for years, it was after my experience with Gospel Keys 202 that my playing was enhanced with a greater flavor!

This four disc DVD set gives you instruction on ear training, coupling chords together in order to transition during worship, how to play worship greats like “As the Deer”, “Hallelujah” and “Anointing”. I love the explicit teaching Jermaine Griggs provides. I am used to sitting next to an individual and learning. This DVD is just as effective and session never ends as you can rewind over and over again!

I have taken what I learned here and added my own personality to the worship chords and have expanded tremendously. I feel that that is Griggs’ intent. Initially you sound a mirror to his style. With more practice and persistence you become more comfortable and are able to express true creativity! You see, though I played I was not satisfied with the style of chords I played. I had some nice and jazzy chords in my bag, but at large I needed a refresher course. This course allowed me to register and reproduce two hand chords that sound like what jazz artist place in some respects. Those chords can liven up any song!

Here is a YouTube video with a clip of Jermaine Griggs’ Gospel Keys 202. I hope you enjoy it as much as I!

Organic Crib Set

My experience with organic products has been slim to none. I always thought vegans, vegetarians, unique people, artists, and people unlike me felt that type of food or product was a must have. It was not until I took a holistic nutrition class that my eye became open to the world of possibilities with organic products!

I now know about organic flour, unrefined sugar, organic chocolate bars, organic baby food, organic soaps, organic cereal and even organic baby bedding.

The Q Collection Junior Celestial Parade Organic Crib Set-sky from babyearth is a beautiful crib set that I would consider now that I realize what organic products don’t have to offer! This set is made from 100% organic cotton. The dyes and non-toxic and yet the set is gorgious!

Rent Call of Duty Black Ops with GameFly for Less Than with Blockbuster

In Nintendo, video game on February 3, 2011 at 3:45 am

Call of Duty Black Ops was much anticipated by critics and chronic gamers alike this past November. I too wanted to see what all the commotion was about. However, I did not wish to buy it for $60. I joined GameFly!

If you do not know GameFly is a rental agency by mail-order of video games from all the major gaming consoles. The gaming consoles supported by Gamefly are: PS3, GameBoy Advance, Nintendo DS, PSP, Xbox 360, Xbox, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo GameCube.

My experience was impressive as I registered, picked my gaming console, and picked Black Ops. GameFly immediately verified availability of the game and it was off in the mail! It took a couple of days to arrive, but I was pleased with the amount of wait time.

Blockbuster charges $9.71 to rent Call of Duty Black Ops. I joined GameFly for $5.95. I saved money and rented the game for one month through GameFly.

After the first month the fee for GameFly membership is $15.95. You keep a game for one month and return in postage free only to rent another to be delivered by mail. GameFly also has a two-game rental option which begins at $9.95 for the first month. You order two games for the first month. The second month you still order two games, but will be charged $22.95.

The final option with GameFly which is good for those who are pinching pennies, want to check out a game, or want to see how GameFly suits them is the GameFly Free Trial. You can play two games of your choice for free up to 10 days. You can cancel on or before the 10th day and not be billed.
