  • 30 pages with audio mp3’s of all examples.  Two backing tracks 
  • Only two patterns to learn for each of the three main chords (G/C/D)
  • Two transition patterns-one for G to C, and G to D

The ten songs included are: Come Thou Fount, Shall We Gather at the River, Old Time Religion, Nothing but the Blood, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, and more.  Please sign up on my front page to be notified as soon as it’s available.
