Here is a very useful collection of Worship Chord Progressions. this is NOT my collection of stuff, rather something I came across maybe 15 years ago that was of great value and immediately went into reprocessing and became a transmittable file. I do not know who gets credit for compiling this gem, but it has been an invaluable tool over the years. This is GREAT for helping ears-only musicians understand the eye-musicians and great for encouraging transpositions and facility in the more distant keys. It is provided as an Acrobat file format, easily readable and printable for use in your chruch or praise band. [A download of this is available at the end of this thread. You will not be able to print the chord chart from the "print this topic" link because it is an image file.]
These are really great for introducing groups of people to the concept of "singing in the Spirit" or what some call "the new song" or "song of the Lord". It helps the musicians by providing something more than a one or two-chord progression. It can be used to help build facility in singing spontaneous praises, in singing prophetically. It provides a wonderful ground on which to teach Spirit-led improvisation and with good introduction and proactice can be used in congregational singing unto the Lord with delightful results.
I hope they will be as great a blessing to you has they have to me.
We've modified progression #11 The original IV/inv was shown as a 7 chord. We like it better without the 7th.
If you find anyone who claims credit for compiling these, please advise so that I can give them proper credit.
