Emile Champion - Lost In The Woods - Kristen Anderson-Lopez/Robert Lopez/Jon. Groff - cover - 8/7/20 I don’t read music but, as best I can tell, the original, as performed by Kristoff and his raindeer pals, covers three keys, or at least two.... with my bent left arm, I’m limited to what I can physically play on the guitar, so I took the chord sheet I found online, kept some of it, and tweaked quite a bit. I think that, what I came up with is pretty, and somewhat close to the original... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching... would appreciate your thoughts and comments... have a Blessed weekend, my friends...

Emile Champion - We’ve Only Just Begun - Paul Williams/Roger Nichols/The Carpenters - 8/2/20 I would have liked one more effort, but ran out of time... I didn't go back to the Chorus, because the big callous on my left hand was getting in the way of a nice clear E Major and A Major 7. Lots of guitar at church today.... I purposely did not resolve the ending.... because we’ve only just begun... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching....

Emile Champion - This Masquerade - Leon Russell/George Benson/Carpenters/H.

I tweaked it just a little bit, from what I found online, mainly on the last two lines of the Chorus. Typed it up last night, hand wrote the chords in, after some trial and error. Hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching....

Emile Champion - Candle On The Water - Al Kasha/Joel Hirschorn/Helen Reddy - cover - 7/13/20 I recently covered two songs from Disney films... “Speechless” and “All is Found”.... so a couple of nights ago, I ran a search for “inspirational songs from Disney”, and found this one... It’s from a 1977 Disney animated/live action film “Pete’s Dragon”.... I was two years out of college, and hadn’t met Lynn Champion yet... (I think she was about to graduate from high school)... so I really wasn’t tuned in to Disney at the time... so hadn’t heard it until the other night... but it’s pretty, with a good message... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching...

While you’re preparing to enjoy your dinner tonight... hot dogs, hamburgers, fajitas, veggie burgers, grilled chicken, seafood... whatever you enjoy... say a prayer for our country... I’d like to think that the Souls, of all those who came before us, are watching and praying.... those who Served, Sacrificed, paid the ultimate price... who put their lives on the line... in or out of a Uniform... who ran into danger and trouble, while others escaped from it... who saved, or tried to save, the life of a stranger, without first checking the color of their skin... or their Nationality... who didn’t first check their gender, age, political beliefs, religious beliefs, whether they liked smooth or creamy peanut butter.... and, the families of those who Served, Sacrificed, paid the ultimate price... that they can all continue to say.... yeah, my sacrifice was worth it.... My prayer is that we may all, here in the USA, consider ourselves first as Americans... who want to come together, in respect for each other... and grow old (or older) happy, loved, and in peace... and, remain free.... Thanks for watching...

Emile Champion - What The World Needs Now - Hal David/Burt Bacharach/Jackie DeShannon-cover- 4/18/20 I changed a couple of lyrics, at the end of the second verse, and tweaked some chords here and there, from what I found online. The first two chords, at the beginning of each verse, didn’t seem to work for me, so I changed the Em to an AM7, and an F to FM7, and adjusted my singing, but think it came out okay. I definitely tweaked the ending of the song, with a brief instrumental before the final Chorus, and a little run of chords to close it out.... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching! Emile

Emile Champion - I Will - Paul McCartney/The Beatles - cover - 3/22/20 One song this afternoon... I completed this recording, from memory... won’t bother telling you how many starts and stops to complete it... in my defense, I hadn’t played it in almost a year, and didn’t try memorizing it, until this afternoon, at the music stand and phone... knew the ending was different than the original... so, tried it again, and felt really good about it, coming to the end... but received a phone call... actually a FaceTime... from Paul, with our Grandson Ben... who was at our house, looking for me... The phone call cut off my recording, with less than 30 seconds to go... literally, one more chord strum, ending 3-word lyrical phrase, and my closing comments about the song... But, it was Ben! Closed up shop and rushed home... definitely worth it, in seeing his face, and hearing his voice, on FaceTime, and when I walked into the house! So, the ending here is a little different, but I don’t think Paul McCartney will mind... if he does... well, he ranks far behind Ben... I could try it again tomorrow... what do you think? hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching... comments are always appreciated... Be safe out there...

Emile Champion - Didn’t We - Jimmy Webb - cover - 3/2/20 Hi Robin Howard Hill, and friends... this was a bit more challenging... because of my bent left arm, I’m physically unable to play barre chords, which limits what I am able to play... and I thought I hit a wall with this song... I typed up the lyrics a couple of days ago, and stood at a counter in the church tonight, with the lyrics, a pencil, and my guitar.... I think I came up with chords that are close, and pretty... it helped that I’m familiar enough with the melody to sound it out... I think I only glanced at the chord sheet a couple of times, and really tried to not only perform it from memory, but to feel the song and share it... hope you enjoy it... thanks for your encouragement and any comments...

I took a vacation day, and left Spring at 8:00 this morning, for the four drive, to pick up my new computer from my company, in Dallas... and was able to spend the afternoon with our daughter, Kelsey... I left Dallas at 4:45, hit rush hour traffic on Central Expressway, and dead-headed to my “recording studio”... our church in Spring... arriving at 9:53 (I texted Kelsey, to let her know I was back “home”)... It too three “takes” to memorize this song, well enough, to be comfortable sharing it... I completed this one at 12:01 AM... it’s now 12:39... hope you enjoy it... thanks for listening... any comments would be appreciated...

Emile Champion - I’ve Got A Name - Norman Gimble/Charles Fox/Jim Croce - cover - 11/8/19 Hi... Error Alert... in the beginning of the introductory comments about this song, I incorrectly stated the title, but stated it correctly at the end of the comments... it was late tonight, after a long, busy day at work. But, I think the recording of this cover is good enough, to not scrap it. Hope you agree, and enjoy it.... thanks for listening.... Emile

Emile Champion - Dream A Little Dream of Me - Schwandt/Andre/Kahn/Mamas & Papas - cover - 10/20/19 This is a do-over, of the song I uploaded a few days ago... I didn’t change any chords, though I eliminated one chord going into the first Chorus... however, I went higher vocally at the beginning of each Chorus, which I think offered a big improvement in the clarity of the lyrics... hope you agree, and enjoy this rendition... thanks for listening.... comments are appreciated... have a Blessed Week, my friends... Emile
