Tonic Solfa: El Shaddai El Shaddai + Chord Progression

chord progression and tonic solfa

The popular Christian worship song popularly known as “el shaddai, el shaddai” is about to be scored and the tonic solfa exposed.

Basically, as a pianist, I can tell you that the best way to play this song is by scoring it with the highest volume of a grand piano voice.

Also, if you are used to minor and diminished passing chords, you should employ them moderately.

Tonic Solfa
