We get many, many requests for instrumental arrangements of contemporary Christian music. Regrettably, most of the arrangements heard in worship settings are not published. To the rescue comes Hal Leonard, the publisher of the highly acclaimed Real Book series! One of the newest additions to the series is The Real Worship Book. Although it doesn’t contain full-blown arrangements, it is chock full of highly accurate lead sheets to many of today’s most popular contemporary Christian tunes.
The Real Worship Book contains 200 of CCLI‘s top-ranked songs plus a large selection of both new and classic favorites by songwriters such as Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche, Matt Redman, and many others. Each song includes melody,chords and lyrics, in both singable and guitar-friendly keys whenever possible. (Guitar capo chords are provided when needed.)
Currently the C Instrument book is the only one available but the transposed books should soon follow.
