That is all you need to play and sing that song with one voice 
and one guitar. The solo isn't exactly what is played...it's sorta 
improvised, because it's played on a dobro or something, and there 
are a lot of other stringed instruments playing at that point.
So the solo is basically my best interpretation of how you can play
that without the violins, cellos and stuff. Listen to the song.
Any corrections, suggestions etc, send em my way at
Hierarchyofsnakes@Yahoo.com. Also, if any of you knows how to play
"Ready for the Storm" in open Cm (CGCGCEb) tuning by Dougie Maclean
and sung by the late Rich Mullins, could you help me out:0) Thanks.

That sure does sound perty! Praise God!
