“How Could I Ask For More” Cindy Morgan Piano and Guitar Chords

best_so_far.jpgAlumni weekend for my high school, Jefferson Christian Academy, is coming up this weekend and I’m going. This and the upcoming graduation next month make reminisce over my graduation, which was about a year ago.

I was in charge of filling three musical numbers in the grand three-day engagement. I had two of them filled: a group some of us students formed and a duet with a friend. But, there was one more slot to fill for the actual graduation ceremony. My classmates suggested that my brother sing something. But what? My sister, recalling past graduation ceremonies she attended suggested “How Could I Ask For More” from the “Best So Far” album. She remembers hearing her friend singing that song in my brother’s graduation. After reading the lyrics, I found that this song was very appropriate for a high school graduation.

“..some dreams that are realities today. Such an irony the things that mean the most to me are the memories that I’ve made along the way.”

“So if there’s anything I’ve learned from this journey I am on, simple truths witll keep you going and simple love will keep you strong. Cause there are questions without answers and flames that never die. And hearchtaches we go through are often blessings in disguise.”

“Thank you lord. How could I ask for more.”

Especially towards the end, I think this song embodies the high school experience of dreams, realities, memories, friendships, truths, questions, answers, love, and heartache. If you’re looking for a song to sing during graduation, consider this one.

My brother did end up singing this song. For fun, I created my own chords from the actual recording. I believe that they are very accurate.

“In Christ Alone” Brian Littrell Piano and Guitar Chords

welcome_home.jpgSome of you may remember in the early summer of 2005, Brian Littrell came out with a single called “In Christ Alone.” It climbed the Christian Contemporary Music Charts all the way up to number one! Now, I hear that Brian Littrell is finally releasing a full album including that top song. The album is titled “Welcome Home.” If you’ve been keeping track of the CCM Charts, you’ll also see that his title track, “Welcome Home,” is performing similarly to “In Christ Alone.” Maybe we’ll see it at number one too.

Anyway, back to “In Christ Alone,” I really loved that song (despite the fact that it was performed by a Backstreet Boy). I chorded it in the summer of 2005. It’s too bad that the song is too high or too low for me to sing no matter how much I transpose it! I hope whoever uses these chords will be able to sing it. Enjoy!

“Find Your Wings” Mark Harris Piano and Guitar Chords

My dad and I were discussing the upcoming quinceañera that our church was sponsoring for one of the girls. For those who do not know what a quinceañera is, it is a very special birthday party on a girl’s 15th year. People with Hispanic heritage often celebrate it. Since we live in San Antonio, which is mostly Mexican populated, it’s common to hear of quinceañeras. Often, these parties are as extravagant as weddings themselves! (FYI, the word ” quinceañera” is derived from “quince,” which means 15, and “año,” which means “year”).

birthday_cake.jpgMy dad was the master of ceremonies for this quinceañera and he needed some slots to fill the program, especially the music. He asked me to sing a song but I couldn’t think of anything. I only had love songs and Christian songs in my repertoire. He told me to sing anything!

Personally, I feel awkward when I perform a song that is irrelevant to the occasion. For example, if I play a special music for church, I do not want to play a love song or something classical. No, I want to play something that is Christian! Nothing I had was really appropriate for a quinceañera. To me, the song had to have a positive message about growing up since it was essentially a birthday party.
