This book contains both familiar and less familiar (at least to me!) hymns. They range from easy to low intermediate, but they are all pretty and well done. It gives an easy way to add to your repertoire if you play for church or senior centers, or even just to find a peaceful moment for yourself. It's a nice addition to my library.
The selection found in the book is a good cross section of the old hymns. For those who are moving beyond the basic traditional style, you can still use the book and strum along, but with this book you can start using chords and at the same time start picking single notes over the course of the tune for a strum and pick combination. For those who only have a basic set of chord at their disposal, this book will help expand skills, and delight the ear, moving from the basics, to those chords beyond.
This is a great book for beginners, those looking to expand their skills, and those who already have a great repertoire of chords in their skill-set, only needing to have “sheet music” for unfamiliar tunes.
Love playing hymns, Larry’s book is a good resource
