Monday Mail: Chording with Right Hand

Singing Fence with Music Symbols


There's a very cool song that Morris Chapman wrote in 1984, called Be Bold, Be Strong. It has to do with Joshua 1:9 and Hebrews 13:6. I wrote about it and shared many chord charts with you, here.

Since then, I received a few emails regarding the ability to chord in the left hand and bring out the melody line in the right hand. Thanks to Jude and Gertrude for contacting me on this subject. Some struggle with this approach... So, today I wanted to show you the same song and how to play three note chords in your right hand, along with single bass notes in your left hand.

Now, if you're playing the song in A...


   A                    G             D 
I'm gonna run through the camp, tell everybody get ready, get ready. (2x)
           A      G         D 
Are you ready to take the land? 
          A         G       D 
Are you ready to take a stand? 
          F#m              B                Esus - E 
Are you ready to take the land, for the Lord?



Hope this helps...
