Nathan Gifford replied to Nathan Gifford's discussion 'You get chord charts from where?!'
"Yes, a very high standard and one that can be achieved when charts are all custom-made... not just re-sold PDFs from the original publisher.  Regarding OnSong, the WorshipReady charts all are done in that ChordPro format with bracketed chords…"

""Always" is a pretty high standard. I consider myself quite a stickler for detail and yet I'm still quite pleased every time a chart I've created makes it through being used in earnest without spotting something to…"

"Thanks Charles.  The time I have wasted in the past whilst trying to save time and amend chord charts has taught me that most of the time it is easier and less time consuming to start from scratch.  Even copying and pasting lyrics can be a…"

Nathan Gifford replied to Nathan Gifford's discussion 'You get chord charts from where?!'
"Based on the specified recordings, the WR charts are ALWAYS properly aligned with chords and lyrics. And the chords themselves are guaranteed to be accurate, again, based on the recording. You may play something different, which is fine, but the…"

worship leader, saxophone, keyboards, vocals, songwriting
About Me:
I grew up in the church as a PK (Pastor’s Kid) and was involved in the worship band from a young age. Growing up, I played saxophone not only in my church, but in various worship bands, events, camps and recording projects. I then graduated from Indiana University School of Music with a performance degree on saxophone. While in college, I began doing some worship leading in my local church, then other churches, then took a full-time music pastor position right after graduating. I served in that capacity (in a few places) for about 8 1/2 years. Then I switched gears and launched my own web development business (which I had done part-time while working in the church). After a brief break, I stepped into a new part-time music pastor position at a church plant and helped grow the church to about 550 members in 8 years. I have recorded 9 live worship CDs and been a part of many others during my 20 years of worship leading experience.

I was very involved in a local worship conference that lead to discussions of how to further and regularly resource and serve local church music ministries. Out of all of it, WorshipReady.com was born. It was created to become the highest quality worship chord chart resource, with direct connection to the iPad OnSong app, and also to build a community and overall worship leader resource. Then in October 2016, I took on the ownership of WorshipTheRock!

My wife and 1 of our 5 kids live in Loveland, CO, where we just moved to summer of 2017. Although not serving presently in a music pastor role, I am looking forward to getting connected in our new city and church!

Hi, just got back on, been busy with knee surgery etc. I just recently sold off all my electric stuff and am sticking with acoustic for our new direction in ministry. I got a Taylor 314CE instead  and love it. It works best for every situation!
