A nice groove I was thinking on half-way between Colorado and Ohio. I think I'm going to do another version without the piano in the first verse.
I had this idea to do my own rendition of "Come all ye faithful" a couple of weeks ago. I decided later that I didn't want to follow the original at all, but I just wasted a way to "loosely" identify my rendition with the original song that inspired the whole idea.
The original song calls for the worship if Christ The Lord. The historical accounts of Jesus' birth point out that worshiping God was the response of Mary, Zachariah, the Shepherds, the Magi (Wise Men) and many others. With that in mind, I composed this song and named it "Come Let Us Worship Him" with my focus really being that final tag of the original song - "O Come Let Us Adore Him / Christ The Lord."
Here's the first version of my composition - "Come Let Us Worship Him."
Worship Him - Make Music in Reason - Oxygen25 Akai MPD32 Reason 4
Here's my interpretation of a well-known Christmas song that I made a few years ago. This is one of my original Moody instruMental Music creations done using Propellerhead's Reason 4.01 music software, the Akai MPD32 and the M-Audio Oxygen25 USB keyboard controller.
Grace and Peace!
"Come, Let Us Worship Him"

Here I am making the Soul On Ice sample flip beat.
Soul On Ice Sample Flip Beat Video
I started out with the sample and trying to figure out how I was going to use it. At first, I was going to do a hip-hop track at around 94 beats per minute, but while playing with the sample, I was hearing a faster tempo with a piano solo. So, that moved me into the contemporary jazz genre.
