      Gospel Chords For Guitar

  

 
  Gospel standards that are essential repertoire for every aspiring
  guitarist - great for playing at jam sessions and for family,
  church, camp or other venues for sacred songs. We learn to play
  gospel chords for guitar by developing our ear.

  Learning to play gospel chords n your guitar will help develop
  your overall emotional connection with your audience. While
  gospel music is strongly entrenched in the African American "folk
  church" tradition, it also attracts many who identify as much
  with its expression of African American values, aesthetics, and
  life experiences as with its expression of religion.

  The founding fathers of gospel music are:

  James D. Vaughan

  R. H. Harris

  Albert E. Brumley

  Thomas A. Dorsey

  If you are just starting to learn gospel chords for guitar, start
  by training your ear by playing a simple two chord gospel song
  such as:

  "He's got the Whole World In His Hands" (two chord song) - is
  just one of the many gospel songs for guitar using easy chords.


  Common keys for Gospel Songs are:

  Key of C

  Key of G

  Key of D

  Key of A

  Key of E


  Of course many gospel songs are played in keys such as the key of
  F, Bb, Eb etc

  Flat keys can be difficult to play on the guitar, particularly if you are
  a new player. The solution is to use a capo with easy chord shapes           you already know and enjoy.

  Let's say you know the three main chords in the key of G

  They would be  G    C  &   D  by placing a capo behind the first
  fret you would produce the following chords without having to
  learn any new shapes.

  capo 1st fret, produces the following chords:

  G = G#/Ab

  C = C#/Db

  D = D#/Eb


  Here's a short list of three chord gospel songs for guitar.

  Amazing Grace

  Faith Of Our Fathers

  Farther Along

  Gloryland Way

  I Saw The Light

  I'll Fly Away

  In The Garden

  Jesus Loves Me

  Just a Closer way With Thee

  Nearer My God To Thee

  Old Rugged Cross

  Softly And Tenderly

  That Old Time Religion

  Where Could I Go (But To The Lord)

  Will The Circle Be Unbroken

  It's possible to add additional chords to any of the songs listed
  here, however the idea is to here the basic chords and learn to
  "hear" where the chord progression is going before using chord
  substitution.

  I sincerely hope you enjoy learning these gospel chords for
  guitar, as they will be very helpful in developing your overall
  musicianship.

Rave Reviews for Express Guitar:

 

As a student of Mike Hayes since 1999, I have found his teaching methods and products to be first class. Whatever style or area of music I have been interested in, he has provided me with useful information, advice and study materials. His style of teaching and teaching products enabled me to progress through his guitar course far quicker than I ever imagined. He also helps in teaching yourself to find and develop your own style of music. Mike’s teaching gives his student’s the ability to become useful musicians, not just guitarists.

This course teaches us how to learn, how to retain, and how to recall information quickly. This entire program is built around "connected learning" with key phrases, picture words ( yes there is such a thing ) and the most dynamic personal motivator I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

The course is varied, in-depth and well-structured, making learning and comprehension fast, thorough and enjoyable. It’s a great way of learning, as you can pace yourself and move onto the next stage when you feel competent. I find this course both innovative and inspirational. I find myself leaving Mike’s lessons with the determination to reach my new goals.
