Easy Guitar Chords May 24, 2010
This book is pretty handy for me to use for our praise band. We like the old time hymns and this has easy chords and strum/picking patterns too.
Nice book Aug 12, 2009
It has a great selection of hymns. Some are your standard 3 chord easy ones... others have as many as 8 chords. I like that the chords are at the top of every page so I don't have to go to the back or anything to find them. It also has an interesting feature where it tells you the strum pattern to use. I've not figured it out yet but I like the idea of learning to strum better.
Plenty of old favorites Jan 30, 2008
If you are looking for old standby hymns, then this is a good choice. It is laid out with staff, tabs, and chords. When playing chords, you are also provided strumming and picking patterns. It couldn't really be any easier than that.
There is a good cross section of super easy arrangements and a few that are more challenging. None of it is so complicated it will send you up in a blaze of spontaneous human combustion.
I found the layout to be clean and well-organized. The first verse is the only one included in the arrangement and subsequent verses are listed at the end. This works just fine since anyone singing along in church should have a hymnal in front of them, or a power-point presentation if you are more modern.
Great hymns, definitely easy for guitar, layout has one issue Jun 14, 2007
Overall this hymn music sheet book is great, definitely easy for playing on guitar with simple chords and covers a lot of popular hymns. It's hard to find anything similar to it for guitar players who only know the basic chords.
The only complaint is that the music is not arranged precisely on a line-by-line correspondence for the first stanza as on the subsequent stanzas. Since the subsequent stanzas don't have chords marked on them, it makes it difficult to look at the unaligned first stanza chords and map them to the words in the subsequent stanzas. So you almost have to memorize the entire song's chords in order to play the other stanzas - kind of a bummer for "easy guitar" players. I would have given it 5 stars if this had been laid out better.
