"One thing to think about though, is that certain chord voicings can affect the way the song or even chord progression itself is intended to sound. For instance, if you have a song like the old David Crowder one, "You Alone," the…"
Thanks for the warm welcome, Phil! And thank you, too, for setting up and administering WTR. I'm so glad to have stumbled upon your site. Just reading the comments from you and some of the members have already encouraged me. Yes, I will invite our church's worship leaders to join. Stay blessed!
