Welcome to Banjo Butch. This blog shares my music with other instrumentalists who are learning to play. My personal videos of how to play songs and my own tablature are all FREE.

Guitar - praise videos (and other)

I originally made this type of "quick and dirty" videos to help a friend of mine learn them.  He said that they really helped them.  So even if my playing is not perfect, hopefully they will help you too.  Since I usually play the guitar rather than lead the singing, I sometimes don't know the melodies or timing of the vocal parts too well . . . but that will soon be obvious to you.  : )    The idea is to let you see what my left hand is doing.

Better is One Day by Matt Redman

Blessed Be Your Name by Matt Redman

Come, Now is the Time to Worship by Brian Doerksen

Come Thou Fount

This one obviously isn't a praise song, but it is one that lots of guitar players want to learn, so I put it here.

The Gentle Healer - by Michael Card.  Arrangement by Selah.

The Old Rugged Cross (G)

Praise the Father, Praise the Son (C)

Under the Double Eagle (Key of C).  I learned to play this from the Bluegrass Guitar book listed on my resources page.  This is just C, G7 and F.  I don't use my pinky finger at all (but it sometimes looks like I am using it).
