Updates, Fixed Links and Christmas Gifts

I pray you all had a good Thanksgiving. I just added two hymns: Now Thank We All Our God and Fairest Lord Jesus/Beautiful Savior. During that process, I also discovered that my YouTube tutorials were still linked to ScoreExchange, which requires $1.50 to print the music. I have redirected those links to the free sheet music on my website. (I wondered why I was still getting little payments from ScoreExchange. Sorry about that.)


Free Means Free

It has been my intention tp freely provide this resource to church guitarists. I just discovered that some of my old links to Score Exchange were still working. I thought I had transfered everything to the Sibelius Cloud, which will play the arrangement on a computerized guitar for free. I changed things from Score Exchange to the cloud when Score Exchange changed their policy and required all the music they handle to have a minimum charge. No more give aways for them.


Lent Update

I just uploaded 11 videos. These are old videos which were recorded on my Zoom Q3,and not in my newest 2 camera format. But they are still better than nothing and I don't seem to have the time lately to make new videos like I had planned. Most of the videos are of modern hymns for which I cannot legally share the sheet music of my arrangements. That said, I find it a little frustrating that many church guitar websites have tabs for copyrighted music posted online. To my knowledge,that is illegal, so I choose not to join in that practice.


Latest improvements to this site

Thanks to my friend, Juan Carlos Garcia, the site is now set up so you can freely print out the sheet music. Currently, a hymn must have a tutorial video for the sheet music to be available for you, and I have only made videos for about half of my arrangements. That is why you will see both a HYMNAL tab and a TEMP HYMNAL tab. Anything on the HYMNAL tab has sheet music that can be printed or viewed and has a tutorial video. Pieces listed on the TEMP HYMNAL tab have no video yet and the sheet music can only be viewed and played, but not printed.


Site Under Construction

The website that I have used to house and share my arrangements, Score Exchange, recently changed their policies. They no longer allow any composer to simply give away their work for free. They added a price on all my arrangements and I only found out about it through guitarists who contacted me. But all things work for the good for those who love the Lord, so this will work out quite nicely.
