From His Hand - V1 (Schletty, Feehan, & Miller)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
For the bruised reeds, just getting by in the shallows...

I wrote this back in 2005. In 2007 Roxylee, futzpucker, and I recorded and posted it here (since taken down). This version is somewhat new. Richard Schletty gives a wonderful solo vocal performance. Patrick's keyboard instruments shine as the envelope around Rich's vocal (thanks again, Patrick). Roxylee sits out for the time being... until Version 2: which can now be listened to HERE

Vocal: Richard Schletty
Keyboard instruments: Patrick Feehan
Guitar: Jack Miller
Final mixing: GarageBand & Channel Strip

Lyrics
Chorus:
To you from His hand D - G - D
To you from His hand D - G - D
At the right time He sends A
His blessing from above G
Tears to joy A
A message of His love G
To you from His hand D - G - D
To you from His hand D - G - D

Verse 1:
Though you walk through the valley D - F#m
And the clouds hide His face G - A
Storms, they may gather D - F#m
And raindrops wet your face G - A

Refrain:
He is with you in the darkness Em - D
Side be side your every step Em - D
Even though your faith may falter Em - D
He is there to hive His best G - A



Verse 2:
He has walked the path before you {chords same as verse 1}
He's acquainted with your pain
Though doubts may cause you trouble
His love remains the same.



To you from His hand.

Rich vocals
pun intended. Very smooth and rich, Rich. Peace filled instrumentation by Patrick and Jack. This could be a sweet bedtime lullaby.

Roxylee,
I also did a re-vox of this same song with your 2007 vocal harmonies blended in. But I transposed the whole song to Eb (one half step up) and Jack wasn't crazy about that. Would you like to hear my little experiment?

Nice writing. Richard sounds great on this. I like the subtle arrangement. Nice clear mix as well.

Old friend
I cannot recall Richard ever sounding sweeter than this. Magical feeling achieved. This is my favorite version. Every lyric caressed. Excellent piano accompaniment too, futzpucker, gracefully played. Great mix. I kept liking this more and more as the song progressed. You should publish this in a religious catalog. It's simplicity and genuine devotional feel would be appreciated by many. Thanks for sharing this version.

Tobin...
Thanks for your comments. I tried very hard to temper my voice on this one. I have been practicing various vocal stylings over the past few years – some time spent with a Renaissance choir called Waltham Abbey Singers, singing at church every Sunday with piano and guitar ensemble (yes me playing my nylon acoustic), and singing regularly in the bathroom a cappella from old worship hymnals and Gospel songbooks. Achieving good vocal support is hard work. I could be doing better but I'm usually too busy to practice as much as I should.

This was recorded on my Zoom H2 – a nice little digital recorder that Jack also has. I mixed it in Logic Studio 8. I really like the soundtrack that Futz and Dadai put together.

André said pretty much the same thing about publishing this on an album of devotional songs. I am encouraging Jack to think commercial. He needs nudgment.

Thanks, Tobin...
I agree. Rich hits his pitch on this one. Patrick's keyboards (especially piano) are golden. It was bringing Rich in that gave me the impetus to remix this... and give the various tracks air to breathe, as compared to the original. I'm pleased with it and take encouragement that you are, too.

by the way, I'm certainly not averse to publishing this (Ricardo...). ;-)

Did someone mention My name?
Its a great song Richard and worthy of getting out to a greater audience. I agree your voice has never sounded better... Save those settings! 8-) Its time that we all let ourselves shine out to the world around us... Besides people now could use some inspiration...Peace to you Richard...
