Juan Luis Guerra: Mi Bendición (Guitar Chords and Lyrics)

I discovered the Latin singer Juan Luis Guerra yesterday on Spotify and I fell in love with one of his songs "Mi Bendición". I couldn't find the guitar chords online so I decided to pick up my old guitar and write them down myself.  Here goes...




Mi Bendición
Juan Luis Guerra

CM7--F-G

 C             Dm7        Em7      FM7
Dicen que las flores no dejaban de cantar
   Dm7        G7sus4   G7
tu nombre, tu nombre cariño
C            Dm7          Em7         FM7
Que las olas de los mares te hicieron un chal
     Dm7      E7sus4  E7
de espuma, de nubes y lirios

Am        Am/G     Am/F#
Y la luna no se convenció
  D7                 D7sus4-D7
Y bajo a mirarte el corazón
  C          Dm7           Em7       FM7
Y al mirarte dijo que no había visto un sol
    Dm7       E7sus4    E7     FM7
radiante, mas bello que mi bendición

   G        Em7     C7sus4    C7      FM7
Tenerte, besarte, andar de la mano contigo
     G       Em7     C7sus4      C7        FM7
Mi cielo, mirarte, decirte un te quiero al oído
 Em7         G7sus4,G7        CM7    FM7-G
yo te lo digo,         que bendición

 C            Dm7         Em7      FM7
Dicen que las palmas aplaudían al oír
    Dm7        G7sus4  G7
tus pasos, tus pasos cariño
C            Dm7         Em7            FM7
Que los ríos salen de su cauce al contemplar
    Dm7       E7sus4  E7
tus ojos, tus ojos divinos

 Am         Am/G      Am/F#
Y un lucero no se convenció
  D7                 D7sus4-D7
Y bajo a mirarte el corazón
  C          Dm7           Em7    FM7
Y al mirarte dijo que no había visto luna
Dm7        E7sus4    E7    FM7
llena, mas bella que mi bendición

   G       Em7      C7sus4    C7      FM7
Tenerte, besarte, andar de la mano contigo
    G       Em7      C7sus4      C7         FM7
Mi cielo, mirarte, decirte un te quiero al oído
 Em7         G7sus4,G7     CM7
yo te lo digo, que     bendición

Fm                         CM7
  Cuando me hablas oigo un coro de amor para dos
Fm                     G                             FM7
  El falsete de un te quiero pegado a tu voz, que bendición

  G        Em7      C7sus4    C7      FM7
Tenerte, besarte, andar de la mano contigo
    G       Em7      C7sus4      C7        FM7
Mi cielo, mirarte, decirte un te quiero al oído
 Em7         G7sus4,G7        FM7
yo te lo digo,        que bendición


  G        Em7      C7sus4    C7      FM7
Tenerte, besarte, andar de la mano contigo

Hi Allister
I also like this song very much. I think you did a great job.
After reading that you tried to find the chords yourself I crawled behind my piano and started to listen to the song and try out the chords.
I'll write down my findings and perhaps you will find it useful
Intro: CM7 ...Fm7 Gsus7
Dicen .. cantar: CM7 Dm7 Em7 Ebdim7 (replace FM7 by Ebdim7)
etc.
Y .. convencio: Am Am/G# Am/G Am/F# (added Am/G#)
radiante ... bendicion .... FM7 (just like yours)
Tenerte G/F (the F in the bass is hanging from the previous chord FM7)

Cuando me ....para dos Fm7 Ab/Bb(or Bbsus) CM7 (So only the strange chord Ab/Bb is added)

Etc.
Hope you like the additions.
Yes the song is real nice

Oh! Kinabuhi (Oh, Life!)

I've just seen that video of famous boxer Manny Pacquiao singing a sort of medley of Visayan songs so I thought I'd post the lyrics and translation of one of them here. This song is called "Oh! Kinabuhi" by Filipino singer Victor Wood.



Oh! Kinabuhi
Victor Wood

Inig sidlak sa adlaw sa sayo sa kabuntagon
Masud-ong ta ang katahoman ning kalibutan
Gidayandayan sa nahigmata nga kalanggaman
Nga nanag-awit ning kabukiran

Ug mopadulong sa pagsalop sa kahapunon
Ug sa dughan nga walay naglaylay
Sa kasing-kasing nga way nagsapnay
Sama kanako nga sinalikway ay magamahay

Chorus:

Oh kinabuhi sama ka sa usa ka gapnod
Nga gianod-anod sa bul-og ning mga luha
Way kinutoban way hunong ang iyang guidulngan
Ayayay-ayayay nganong sakiton man.
Here's the English translation:

Oh Life!
by Victor Wood
(translated by Allister Sanchez)

When the sun shines early in the morning
We'll see the beauty of this world
Adorned by the awoken birds
That sing in these mountains

And it heads to set i…

Finally!

I'm so happy with myself today. Why? Well, simply because after months of preparation I finally finished my first 10km running race!

It all started when my former team leader at work gave me a copy of Jogging International, a French-language magazine on running, early last year. It was a special edition on marathons, with various articles from training programs to diet and foot injuries. I don't know why exactly, but it spurred my interest in running. I actually had tried to run before that but holding that magazine in my hand made me more determined to really finish a marathon.

However, by summer (around June 2010) I realized that I was too heavy. A very slow run or even a brisk walk was enough to raise my heart rate to very high levels. So I started looking around for ways to lose weight.

An online friend introduced me to the P90X training program. This program was extremely difficult for me and it took me weeks to finally decide to commit to this program. I had to try some …
