The classic hymn How Great Thou Art is a simple chord progression for the most part. Chords used in the key of G are G, C, D, D7, Am, G7, and C#dim7. We will be covering the chords and the melody.
In this lesson we will be learning a chord melody version of Will The Circle Be Unbroken. Chord melody style involves playing the chords and melody at the same time. This can be tricky and challenging but very rewarding when accomplished. This particular song is a great one to try this style as it is not too difficult and involves a repeating melody pattern. Chords used are just G, C, and D open chords. This version lends itself to a bluegrassy sound.
This lesson is a song study of Our God by Chris Tomlin.
In this lesson we will be learning Came To My Rescue by Hillsong.
In this lesson we will be learning Imagine by Mercy Me
This is a simple song with the same chord progression throughout. If you know your open chords this should be relatively easy.
This lesson is a song study of the Hillsong tune Oceans. This song requires a capo at the 3rd fret. The verse and chorus are relatively easy finger picking patterns. The bridge and solo sections are a little more difficult with some complicated chord fingerings.
In this lesson we will be learning How He Loves by David Crowder. The song is great for beginners using only C, Am, G, and F. While the F can be challenging for beginners, this is a good song to use to push yourself into playing that chord. I will also show you more advanced players some ways to dress this up and add some more colorful guitar parts.
