Hi, folks.

I'm looking for hymnals or hymnbooks or a fairly large collection of hymns with chords. Most of the traditonal hymnals used in Churches only has notes. Anyone know of some with chords?

I ask because my wife is learning to play Octave Mandolin and we've been playing a few tunes together. (The OM and whistle are great together and we do a mean number on Wayfaring Stranger.) We've got folk tune books (with a few hymns here and there) but a book of hymns with chords would be great.

Anyone know of any?

Thanks for the link. This will be helpful.

What I also need is both notes and chords. (Demanding, aren't I!) :)

Keith, I have "The Hymn Fake Book", published by Hal Leonard --"a Collection of Over 1000 Multi-Denominational Hymns -- Melody, Lyrics, Chords". It only gives the melody music, no harmony, and not always in whistle-friendly keys. I use Finale Notepad or SongWriter to change keys & chords to a better key for whistles.

You might have to use two sources. One for the chords and one for the melody. Although there are lots of books out there with both. Hit our local Christian book store and see what they have.

the publisher of the hymnal that your church uses may have the music for sale in different version. besides the hymnal, they may have music for keyboards, choir, guitar and vocals, maybe even organ. sometimes the hymnals are so old that you can't get the complimentary sheet music because it's out of print.

Thanks everybody. The hymn fake book is good, as is the folk song fake book (we've got both). We play from them frequently. ("Play," of course, is relative here as we are both learning. ;) )

I'm still looking for one with a regular four part score (so when my wife sings I could also play harmony rather than melody). But there aren't too many like this so we'll have to actually do some work and write in cords on some pieces. I was just hoping for an easy way through.

"Great Hymns for Guitar", by Bill Bay, has two-part harmony, chords, guitar accompaniment, and guitar tab. My edition is spiral-bound. I think newer editions are paper bound.
