Here are the chords to Ricky Dillard (The Light)
« on: January 29, 2008, 12:10:30 AM »
Hey, I'm working on the new Ricky Dillard song called The Light. Can anybody give me the chords for the lick they do coming out of the verse, going into the chorus. I know the bass notes are C# - F# - B - A - D - E - A - Ab. I think a got the first few chords and I can fake the last few but it would be cool if somebody could help me out. Stay Blessed, all!

Hello favoredbygod708,

THANK YOU SO MUCH ! for taking the time to post the chords to this song. I tried to figure them out on my own,but  I didn't have much success. I have posted a couple of songs on here and I do realize that it is  very time consuming to type not only the words  but also the chords  to a specific song.however, it is ALL GOOD though . May God continue to bless you and your music ministry RICHLY.

Have a wonderful day!

I had someone recently ask me about that exact part that you referenced, so I thought I would share what I told them. To me, it sound like the run is using all major 9th chords chords, except the last two, which are 13th chords. Anyway, this is what I shared (the inversions may be correct):


"The Light"
by Ricky Dillard and New G


LH/RH

Special Passing Progression:

DbAb/FAbCEb - (DbMaj9)
GbDb/AbBbDbF - (GbMaj9)
BGb/BbDbEbGb - (BMaj9)
AE/BDbEAb - (AMaj9)
DA/EGbADb - (DMaj9)
EB/GbAbBEb - (EMaj9)
ADb/GBDbGb - (A13)
AbEb/GbBbCFAb - (Ab13)


I hope that helps, Be Blessed!
