Checkpoint 1 – Grounded in Prayer – Basic Chords
Hello! Welcome to Part 2 of the Training. The first thing we need to do is start in prayer. Next I will show you the chords with the Right and Left Hands together. It may take a while to learn them…so be patient…and enjoy!

Checkpoint 2 – Broken Chords
Breaking up the chords and playing them in a unique pattern will change everything…and give you a new dynamic to play the song in.

Checkpoint 3 – Chord Shapes
Using these shapes with your root chords will change the way you sound forever…and help give you that characteristic worship sound.
Checkpoint 4 – Setting the Mood and Advanced Broken Chords
CAUTION: The Advanced Broken Chords are fairly difficult. If you find it overwhelming I recommend skipping it and coming back later once you have developed your skills a little more.
Checkpoint 5 – All Together
When playing a song in worship you will want to change the dynamics to add emotion and energy. In the next example I’m going to use everything shown in this lesson…watch how it changes the feel of the song.
