“On Jordan’s Stormy Banks I Stand” has been around for a long time, but has really made a comeback in recent years. It was written by a London minister named Samuel Stennett in the late 1700’s and was very popular in multiple denominations. Jars of Clay, a popular Christian and Folk Rock music group produced a collection of reinvented hymns and spiritual songs as a joint effort with several music groups. One of the most popular songs on that album is “On Jordan’s Stormy Banks I Stand” performed The Blind Boys of Alabama. Once known as “Promised Land”, this song still holds its own popularity at camp meetings, concerts, churches, and jam sessions.
Layne Publications, an online music teaching company, has multiple popular songs and even collective packages for learning on the guitar, banjo, and mandolin. The site is easy to use and includes a full-length audio sample of each song to ensure that the correct one is chosen. Each selection comes with several tools including: a chord chart, a note for note tablature, and two MP3’s for excellent training. One MP3 has the full song and the second one has the full song without the chosen instrument. This second MP3 is called a jam track and enables the student to practice as they would with a full bluegrass band. Customers say that the jam track really makes a big difference when practicing to get a song down smoothly. “On Jordan’s Stormy Banks I Stand” and other great selections are now available at http://www.laynepublications.com/.
