"Because He Lives" Lesson

This song by Matt Maher is a great worship song, especially for Easter. It focuses on the resurrection and how it impacts our life. The lyrics parallel the death and resurrection of Jesus with our own death in sin and our new life in Him.  

This is the video lesson based on my version of it which incorporates the signature lick. Also, notice that this is in the key of B, which is capo 4 using the G Chord Family. You can learn more about capos if that is a new concept. When you do this, you are able to play the song with just an acoustic. You'll also notice some fairly quick chord changes in the choruses. Some chords only last one measure.
