Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Resource for Christian Guitarists  Sep 29, 2005
This book has most or all of the melodies for the hymns in the Methodist Hymnal with guitar chords. The chord choices are quite good, which is not always true of chords that appear with music. Although I have seen better chord choices for Amazing Grace, these are still quite good. The chords are not too hard for an amature guitarist to play. There is a chord chart of the chords used in the back of the book, so you can look up how to play a chord.

You just have to remember what the slash means in a chord name, like this: C/G. It means that your lowest note in the chord should be a G instead of a C. This chord would be fretted like this (from lowest pitch string to highest, the numbers being the fret numbers): 332010. It is a C chord with an added bass G note.

These "slash" chords are used a lot in this book and they add a very nice flavor to the music.

Another nice feature is that they print the chords for the true key that the piece is written in, which could be something like E flat, which is nearly unplayable on the guitar in terms of nice sounding chords, but they also give you the chords you would use if you use a capo to be able to play E flat as if it were the key of D. The chords to use with a capo are printed right below the true chords. This makes hymns in E flat easy to read and play with a capo.

Overall, the people who produced this book really did a good job.

Any Christian guitarist would benefit from this great resource, not just a Methodist.
 
Excellent Resource for Mainline Church Musicians  Feb 25, 1999
"How Sweet the Sound: Hymns and Choruses with Guitar Chords" is an answer to the church musician 's prayer, if you like playing from "lead sheets." This is the best resource that I have found for traditional and modern hymns. Of course, you can find praise and worship choruses anywhere, Here in one volume are "Sweet Hour of Prayer," "The Friendly Beasts," "The Gift of Love," and other hymns that mainline Protestant churches love to sing.
