Recommended songs for beginning worship guitar players

We had an email recently from someone relatively new to guitar playing who wanted to know which of the songs we have available as backing tracks and chord charts are accessible for a newish guitar player.

We’ve pulled together a list of simple songs which have video lessons available too. You can access all the lessons with a membership of our Worship Training Subscription Site or by via permanent download (links for the downloads and chord charts are below). Two of these lessons are Subscription site only – we do try and reward subscription site users with some unique content. The backing track and chord chart links take you to our sister site Worship Backing Band.
