In this lesson, we'll put the 3/4 strumming to work by learning to play the song 'With You I Am Whole'.

Remember, you'll find the lyrics and chords under the 'Image' tab below the video, and you can print them out by going to the 'Print Lesson' tab.

First we will preview the song structure.

Then I will play it for you, so you can hear where we are headed.

And finally, we'll do a full play-along with the band!

You will probably want to print out the music for this so you can follow along.

And don't worry if it takes a while before you can keep up with the whole song. That can be a big challenge!

Just remember, you can always practice it on your own, at a much slowed-down pace.
Practice each section on its own. Break it into smaller bits.

And, when you are playing along with me, remember that if you make a mistake or get lost, just relax, hang back, and wait for a good place to jump in and join me again.

Have fun with this!

WITH YOU I AM WHOLE (lyrics)

VERSE 1:
I'm no spring chicken
Been round the block enough times
Yet always felt I was missing
A gem Im meant to find

I could not have predicted
Would never have guessed
The day I reached out for your hand
How my heart would be blessed

CHORUS:
Every day I've awakened
Every word of my song
Every road I have taken
Every win, every wrong
Completes the equation
That delivers my soul
With you, I am home now
With you I am whole

VERSE:
Every page of my story
Has its ups and its downs
I've loved me some angels
I've loved me some clowns

Everything changes
That's the one thing I know
Ain't it strange how a stranger
Can welcome you home?

CHORUS:
Every day I've awakened
Every word of my song
Every road I have taken
Every win, every wrong
Completes the equation
That delivers my soul
With you, I am home now
With you I am whole
