Good morning,

I had the opportunity to play some bluegrass gospel tunes with some folks at a church service at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church. Dick Horonjeff recorded our performance. This is our version of a classic tune with somewhat grim imagery.

Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb (A)


Verse 1:
G                              C
Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power
        G                          D
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb
        G                     C
Are you fully trusting in his grace this hour
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb

Chorus (after each verse)

G          
Are you washed(are you washed)
       C
In the blood(in the blood)
       G                           D
In the soul cleansing blood of the lamb
         G                          C
Are your garments spotless are they white as snow
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb (turn around)

Verse 2:

G                            C
Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side
        G                          D
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb
       G                       C
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb

Verse 3:

G                                    C
When the bridegroom cometh will your robes be white
         G                         D
Pure and white in the blood of the lamb
G                               C
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright
       G             D            G
And be washed in the blood of the lamb

Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór

Anyone that attempts to play music realizes how vast and rich this artform is. I knew this tune but was unaware of the guitar tuning DADGAD (Dad Gad). It has such a great sound. Since I have an extra guitar I need to give the tuning a try, at least as a stretch goal.

Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór (meaning “Small fairy, big fairy” in Irish Gaelic) is an Irish tune, attributed to blind harpist and singer Turlough Carolan (1670-1738).

It is a delight to watch this YouTube video, Tony makes it look so effortless.
