Songbooks to help you play your favorite songs

Purchase great songbooks with many songs to play for worship at the 8 Chords online store. I have chosen several great songbooks from major pulishers that you can use to play all of the top songs you love for worship. 

Also for thousands of good worship and top Christian chords sheets, check out Rockin’ The Cross at http://www.1christian.net

This site has a monthly fee but offers the largest library of Christian music chord sheets. I have been a member for 4 years and use their sheets for worship all the time. You can also transpose all of the sheets to any key to make any songs playable for you at your level. (8 Chords 100 Songs is not affiliated with Rockin’ The Cross) 

 

Songbooks that will help you along the way:

I use mainly Hal Leonard songbooks. They are one of the largest publishers and theirs books can be found and ordered at about every bookstore including Borders and Barns.  I am making these suggestions to my students.  These songbooks may contain more than 8 chords, but my students will be able to play songs from each of these books with no problem.  Be sure to note the difficulty notes.  Most of the once that get the “Hard” rating contain a good amount of songs in hard to play keys like Eb and F.  These songs can be transposed (which I teach in detail in book 3) but will take a bit more work and understanding of the guitar. We will begin to cary these on our site soon. Until then, try Amazon.com or a local bookstore.
