If you want to express your faith but don’t really know how, music is a great place to start. Music is one of the most natural things that we have.
It is thousands of years old, and it is as new as our discovery of it. Whether for recreational purposes or for groups and gatherings, learning guitar can allow you to express your faith without the need for a band or a slew of instruments.
In this article, we will discuss some of the easiest Christian guitar songs for you to learn.
Before you hop on into the lessons, you might want to take a few seconds to go over your skill list. These songs aren’t difficult, but they will require some basic knowledge. If you are comfortable with chord charts or tablature and you have a steady sense of rhythm, then you have everything it will take to tackle these songs.
If you struggle in any of these three departments, it is best that you take some time to familiarize yourself with them. If you are struggling with the rhythm, try taking some time to play along with a metronome. This is the only way that you will be able to develop a full sense of rhythm.
The first easy Christian song on our list is Hosanna by Hillside. This is a fairly basic song. It covers a basic progression using a few basic chords. In fact, the song only uses six different chords. The overall feel is very relaxed and laid back so you can take your time when playing and allow yourself to find a comfort zone within the chords. The chords involved are; A, B, C#m, E, F#m, and G#m.
Our second song is Son of God by Starfield. This song involves a capo. If you don’t have a capo, simply tune your guitar up by one half step. This is yet another song involving easy chords and a simple progression.
Just like Hosanna, Son of God is very laid back and easy going so you can let yourself get comfortable with the overall feel of the piece before jumping in. This song is a single step ahead as it involves one seventh chord. The chords used in Son of God are; C, D, Em, Em7, and G.
Our third and final easy Christian guitar song to learn is Here I am to Worship by Tim Hughes. This song is a little bit more difficult than our previous two songs as it involves a suspended chord. While this isn’t too obscure, it is a bit more difficult to get used to.
Yet again, this song is fairly relaxed and you will be able to take your time getting into the feel of it. The chord that is used in Here I am to Worship are as follows; A, Bsus, D#, E, F#m, and G#.
Now that you have some easy Christian guitar songs, the next step is to learn them. Take your time to find the placement of the chords and allow yourself to become familiar with each song. Good luck, and have fun!
