When I was in Uganda I was doodling on the guitar one day and I came up with a cool little guitar riff. Somehow it seemed to match up in my mind with the hymn text “There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy.” Like all promising musical ideas that come to me, it kept playing in my head and I kept fussing with it on paper. But then it just got too fussy. I was over thinking it until all its charm was gone. So I decided to take a break from looking at it on paper and just get back to how the started–with me doodling on guitar. Over the last few days I’ve just been playing with it and now I feel like it’s once again becoming that simple, charming song that I met in Uganda. Here’s me playing it straight into the mic on my MacBook Pro: There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy MP3.
