This is the second volume in the 'Song Learner' series for worship guitar by worship resource organisation Musicademy. Presented by Musicademy's Andy Chamberlain the DVD goes through six well known songs for worship, such as Tim Hughes' "Here I Am To Worship" and Matt Redman's "The Father's Song" and breaks the guitar parts down into simple chord changes and strumming patterns. The DVD is aimed at beginner to intermediate guitar players though I would suggest an intermediate player would find this too basic and almost patronising! Andy talks and plays each and every basic chord and strum, showing cheats and giving tips on how to use the capo effectively or how to play chords with a change in the bass notes (a staple in many worship songs) and for the beginner this process is helpful and clear to understand, if a bit fast at times. All in all, an effective way to learn and improve as a musician and in how to play the songs sung in our churches.

A DVD teaching resource for guitarists conducted by Andy Chamberlain.

The Musicademy Song Learner Series for Worship Guitar - teaching contemporary worship songs in the context of a 12-20 minute lesson which enables you to master appropriate strumming patterns, find easy shapes for complex sounding chords, cheats for quick chord changes plus hints, tips and techniques which will further your playing beyond learning the song itself.

The Song Learner Series is ideally suited to students who have completed the Beginners Worship Guitar course but are not yet ready for the more advanced teaching of the Intermediate course. Song Learners will build on the foundations of students’ musical knowledge and teaching how to play some of today’s most popular contemporary worship songs properly. This is particularly useful where the most appropriate fingering and rhythm is not immediately obvious from a chord chart or music score.

Each lesson is significantly more than a quick run through of how to play the song. As experienced educators, we at Musicademy realise that students new to a musical principle need to have the information broken down, repeated slowly and then consolidated in the context of a song. The DVDs therefore show each new section of a song and play it through a few times before each element is bolted together in a step-by-step way. Using this methodology not only does the student understand the technique and how to apply it to other songs, but also gets each sequence into muscle memory.
