I used to have to introduce this song to people. Can you believe that?
It is from one of my good friends, Keith Getty (he created a piano project for me about 7 years ago). I don’t have to introduce this song anymore. This powerful new hymn that Keith and Stuart wrote is so moving and tells the story of our faith so well.
There is a rockin’ lead guitar solo in the middle where we go into “The Solid Rock” that Travis Cottrell made popular (buy his records if you don’t have them!!!) When you get to the key change, just hang on!!! This just turned out So Big! You will love it and so will everyone within earshot.
This arrangement is in the key of F/G
The Electric and Acoustic Guitar are a HUGE part of this arrangement. The Electric Guitar really shines on the ‘Top Gun’ sort of rockin’ lead guitar solo on ‘The Solid Rock’ in the middle of this arrangement. This has a sort of rock orchestra feel to it. I tell people it is a little bit of ‘Top Gun’ and a little bit of ‘Mr. Holland’s Opus’ and a whole lot of POWER!!!
The piano player will play B3 on this arrangement. This is a great opportunity for the piano/keyboard player to really shine. The B3 part is written out in case your keyboard player is not able to simply play off a chord chart.
This is a totally cool groove for the drummer. Have him listen to the recording and he will absolutely know what to do.
This is a straight forward rock groove for the bass player. A written out bass part with chords is provided (‘could’ use synth bass if you don’t have a live one).
The horns really have a rock orchestra feel in this arrangement. The horns are playing a huge, powerful orchestral ballad over top of this rocking guitar driven groove. When the brass hit their huge fanfares at ‘The Solid Rock’, I do not think anyone will be left seated in the chairs or pews. It is POWERFUL!!!
