I have a love/hate relationship charts. I love them because they make it possible for volunteer worship musicians with full-time job and family commitments to hang with the band on Sundays. Awesome. I hate them because they steal the joy of playing freely and confidently because once you’re stuck to one you can’t escape it. Not awesome.
There are some chords I just love to use. They are not always appropriate but it’s so satisfying when I can squeeze one in. In this post I’m going to show you a few of my favorites and some of the chords they match well with.
I’ve had lots of questions on how to break out of old patterns, improve at lead guitar and become more confident worship guitarist in general. While this depends on your goals, there is one thing you can always do to get better at lead guitar and I’m going to not only tell you what it is, but the best way to practice it.
When I first started playing for worship, my best friend was a large plant on the end of the stage. I loved it because I could hide behind it and I play guitar to my hearts content. Nobody could see me and that was the point.
