Just want to say thank you for sharing.
If you can't believe GOD when things appear bad, then you can't belive GOD at all.

Bassline and chords for songs like "God Is Not Dead", "I'm A Soldier", etc.

Key Eb LH/RH

Part 1:

Eb, G / Db-Gb-Bb God is
Ab, A / C-F-Ab not
Bb, C / Bb-Eb-Gb dead
Db, D / C-F-Ab
Eb, G / Bb-Eb-Gb He's
Ab, A / Ab-C-F yet a-
Bb (2x) / Gb-Bb-Eb live
A (2x) / G-B-Db-Eb ohhh

*Ab / Gb-Bb-C-Eb God is not dead *u can bounce this note, or do the following bassline
C, Db, D, Eb / is not dead
F, Gb, G /
Ab (2x) / Gb-Bb-C-Eb or Ab (2x) / C-Gb-Bb He's
Gb (2x) / E-Bb-Eb yet a-
F (2x) / Eb-A-Eb or F (2x) / Eb-A-Db live
Bb (2x) / D-Ab-Eb or Bb (2x) / D-Ab-Db ohhh
(repeat)

*Ab / Gb-Bb-C-Eb God is not dead *u can bounce this note, or do the following bassline
C, Db, D, Eb /
F, Gb, G /
Ab (2x) / Gb-Bb-C-Eb He's
A (2x) / Gb-A-C-Eb (2x) yet a-
Bb / G-Bb-Eb live
C /
/ Gb ohhh
Db / G, Bb

(repeat)

*Ab / Gb-Bb-C-Eb God is not dead *u can bounce this note, or do the following bassline

(leader) He's not
Eb / Db-Gb-Bb dead
F, Gb, G / (congregation) He's not
Ab / C-F-Ab dead
C, Db, D / (leader) He's not
(repeat)

On this part, basically u just alternate playing minor 1 (Eb-Gb-Bb) and minor 2 (F-Ab-C) chords while running Eb bass line (Eb, F, Gb, G, Ab, C, Db, D). Of course, you can experiment using different inversions of those chords.


Bassline and chords for songs like "Victory Is Mine", "Somebody Prayed For Me", etc.

Key Eb  LH/RH

Part 1:

Eb / Bb-Eb-G Vic-
G / Bb-Eb-G to-
/ Bb-Eb-G ry

/ G-Bb-Eb mine
Bb, C, Db, D /
(repeat)

Eb / Bb-Eb-G Vic-

Eb /
/ Bb-Eb-G to-
E /
/ A-C-Eb-G day
F, G /
Ab, A / A-C-Eb-G is
Bb (2x) / Bb-D-F mine
F (2x) / A-C-Eb-G
Bb, B / Bb-D-F
C, Gb / Bb-C-E-G

F, G / C-Eb-F-Ab I
Ab / C-Eb-F-Ab told
A / Bb-Eb-G

Bb, B /
C, Gb / Bb-C-E-G
(repeat)

G / Db-Gb-Bb (2x) Victory
Ab / C-F-Ab to-
F / A-C-Eb-Gb day
Bb / Ab-C-Eb is

Turnaround:

Bb / G-Bb-Eb
Bb / Ab-Bb-D-Gb
(repeat from beginning)

Gb / E-Bb-Eb

Eb / Db-Gb-Bb mine
F, Gb, G / (congregation) It's mine, (leader) It's
Ab / C-F-Ab mine
C, Db, D / (congregation) It's mine
(repeat)

After every 3rd time u play the chords above, u can do this special part:

C, Eb, D / (congregation) It's mine, (leader) It's
Db (2x) / F-B-Eb (2x) mine, (congregation) It's
Gb (2x) / E-Bb-Eb (2x) mine, (leader) It's
F (2x) / Eb-A-Eb (2x) or F (2x) / Eb-A-Db (2x) mine, (congregation) It's
Bb (2x) / D-Ab-Eb (2x) or Bb (2x) / D-Ab-Db (2x) mine, (leader) It's
(repeat from Part 2)


Somebody asked me for a time count next to the song to get an idea for the rhythm. So, here it is:

4/4 time count in [ ]

Part 1:

[1] Eb / Bb-Eb-G Vic-
[2] G / Bb-Eb-G to-
/ Bb-Eb-G ry
[3] Ab /
/ Ab-C-F is
[4] A /
/ G-Bb-Eb mine
[1, 2, 3, 4] Bb, C, Db, D /
(repeat)

[1] Eb / Bb-Eb-G Vic-
[2] D / to-
/ Bb-Eb-G ry
[3] Eb /
/ Bb-Eb-G to-
[4] E /
/ A-C-Eb-G day
[1, 2] F, G /
[3, 4] Ab, A / A-C-Eb-G is
[1, 2] Bb (2x) / Bb-D-F mine
[3, 4] F (2x) / A-C-Eb-G
[1, 2] Bb, B / Bb-D-F
[3, 4] C, Gb / Bb-C-E-G

[1, 2] F, G / C-Eb-F-Ab I
[3] Ab / C-Eb-F-Ab told
[4] A / Bb-Eb-G
/ Bb-D-F Satan
[1, 2] Bb, B /
[3, 4] C, Gb / Bb-C-E-G
(repeat)

[1, 2, 3] G / Db-Gb-Bb (2x) Victory
[4] Ab / C-F-Ab to-
[1, 2] F / A-C-Eb-Gb day
[3, 4] Bb / Ab-C-Eb is
[1] Eb / G-Bb-Eb mine

Turnaround:

[2] G / G-Bb-Eb
[3] Ab / Ab-C-Eb
[4] A / Gb-A-C-Eb
[1] Bb / G-Bb-Eb
[2, 3, 4] Bb / Ab-Bb-D-Gb
(repeat from beginning)

Gb / E-Bb-Eb
F / Eb-A-Eb
Bb / D-Ab-Eb
Eb / Db-G-C-Eb
Both hands: Bb, C, Bb, C
(repeat from beginning)

Part 2:

(leader) Ohhh, it's
[1] Eb / Db-Gb-Bb mine
[2, 3, 4] F, Gb, G / (congregation) It's mine, (leader) It's
[1] Ab / C-F-Ab mine *go to special part from here
[2, 3, 4] C, Db, D / (congregation) It's mine
(repeat)

After every 3rd time u play the chords above, u can do this special part:

[2, 3, 4] C, Eb, D / (congregation) It's mine, (leader) It's
[1, 2] Db (2x) / F-B-Eb (2x) mine, (congregation) It's
[3, 4] Gb (2x) / E-Bb-Eb (2x) mine, (leader) It's
[1, 2] F (2x) / Eb-A-Eb (2x) or F (2x) / Eb-A-Db (2x) mine, (congregation) It's
[3, 4] Bb (2x) / D-Ab-Eb (2x) or Bb (2x) / D-Ab-Db (2x) mine, (leader) It's
(repeat from Part 2)

Basically, what u doing is following the bass notes. Each bass note acts like a quarter note, so it gets one beat. So, start learning the bass part first and once u get it going, add in the chords.

If someone could make this a sticky in one of the rooms, I think that would be helpful since thise question comes up a whole lot!!! ;D
