By FAR the most useful songbook I've ever owned...
Reviewed in the United States on January 3, 2015
I am a worship leader and bi-vocational pastor. I also teach beginning guitar to Junior High & High School students. This book is GREAT for both. I use it for worship services because even novice musicians can follow along. By using this book, budding guitarists can participate on the praise team after just a few months of practice. If you don't like the key they are written in, simply capo up a few frets and enjoy!
The book is broken up into sections.
It starts out with a large section (over 25) of contemporary worship songs (Everlasting God, God of Wonders, Indescribable, etc.), followed by a section of 15-20 well-known and well-loved hymns (Amazing Grace, I'll fly away, The wonderful cross, etc.), then a section of Christmas Carols (Silent Night, First Noel, Away in a Manger, etc. About a dozen or so of them.) and even includes an entire section of children's songs (Jesus Loves Me, The B-I-B-L-E, Father Abraham, etc.) that are VERY useful for the little ones, and a small section of well-known patriotic tunes (God Bless America, America the Beautiful, etc.)
I own many songbooks that I've acquired over almost 3 decades of playing music. This book is the ONLY one that stays in my guitar case. It's everything you need with none of the fluff. By far the most useful songbook I've ever owned. I have bought copies for many of my students, and even another worship leader that is a friend of mine. I have been asked to play a few times at different Christian events without any warning (FCA meetings, church camp, etc.), and I just pop this book out & play away!
WELL worth the money!
