Part of Weekday Amidah (Melody of Eshet Chayil)


Related image

 I  tend to add melody to all my davening. I don't play my guitar as I pray, but for the sake of the melody I've put some chords here to help.

Established tunes or something I'm working with on the fly. I find that it unlocks a part of me that plain language just doesn't always do. 

This melody keeps me from forgetting the feminine, in a world that often does.   


Try with capo on 3rd Fret, and if you like it please feel free to share the idea and the tune.
