Default The Solid Rock (my hope is built on) Instrumental hymn

Thanks for listening!

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus' Name

On Christ the solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

On Christ the solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

That was nicely done! You inspired me to try it myself! I think I find it more comfortable when it is based around the G form. I'm probably lazy: it means I don't have to shift up to reach up for the IV chord portion on the refrain!

Thanks, im realizing listening to the recording that im playing it twice as fast as i should, that would give those chords more transition time. I would like to play all these in g,c,d....would dramatically improve my ability to grab the right Melody notes on the Fly.
