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
