The Campfire Strummer's Hymnal for Voice & Guitar - 113 beloved Christian Hymns & Spirituals with Large Print Lyrics and Chords
This 238-page songbook contains all of the best and most beloved old-time gospel and traditional hymns and spirituals from the United States and England. Over 110 hymns are included in large-print format, with easy-to-read lyrics and guitar chords, perfect for singing and strumming in church, at home, on the back porch or around the campfire.
Ben "Gitty" Baker created this book specifically for people who want to strum and sing the good old hymns - this book does not contain any sheet music notation or tablature, just the words and chords. A short informational snippet for each song, explaining some of its origin and history, is also included. Each song is given in two different keys (C and G), with capo information to help you find your best key for singing.
This is a wonderful treasury of old-time Christian music perfect for session musicians or anyone wanting to learn more of this beautiful music.
From the author: "In choosing what songs to include, I primarily selected ones I remember from my own childhood, growing up in Baptist and Pentecostal congregations in northern Ohio. I have also included the more hymn-like Christmas carols in this collection, since the hymnals I grew up with did so.My hope is that this book will help you along your own musical journey, and will also help to keep these wonderful traditional Christian hymns and spirituals alive for generations to come. Music revivals come and go, and music is always evolving and changing, but some classics stand the test of time. This book is my effort to help ensure these songs will endure. Happy strumming!"
