Hymns on Guitar for Beginners
Learning to play chords and what chords to play
Whether you're a guitar player yet or not, this course will teach you the basics of tuning the guitar and playing basic chords, and will show you how to decide what chords to play based on the music in the hymnal. With more and more churches using blended worship styles, guitar players are needed, but players who are able to play the hymns as well. Old hymns in the public domain provide a great set of songs to learn with, and you'll be playing easy hymns within a very few lessons.
