Level 2: How to Play Silent Night with 7ths and 2 Chords

Some people may wonder why I stay up until the wee hours of the morning making these videos.  To me it all boils down to this: I believe that music is a ministry.  I love music and have been around it all my life, and if there is anything that I can do to better or help enrich someone’s abilities so that they can more effectively minister, than it is worth those late nights and early mornings.

So for those that have seen the Level 1 video and feel like you are ready to take it to another level, watch this new “How to Play” video and see what you can do!


Don’t forget that soon we’ll be adding yet another level for those that want to step it up even more, until then…

God bless!
