Hymns suitable for the Roman Catholic Mass.
Chords, Lyrics and metric for guitar players

Guitar chord sheets (G-sheets) are a one page rendition of a song with lyrics and guitar chords.  Just click on one of the links below, to see an example.

The G-sheet symbolism is more precise, as the chords are written in "metric" (timing rules) that follows the tune metric. For example, each of the "beats" in music usually falls on the syllables where the "tonic accent" falls in the lyrics.

By using this symbolism, the guitar player can play the song for a choir even without knowing or remembering exactly the melody of the song.

The lyrics are taken from publicly available free internet sources, such as youtube.com or spiritandsong.com (a division of OCP).

The lyrics are colored in blue, so that when G-sheets are printed with black ink only, the lyrics will show lighter than the chords, for ease of readability for the guitar player.

 

THE SYMBOLISM USED:

Although most of the symbolism is self explanatory, this note may help.

 

The following scores are provided here for your personal use only.
