Many of you tell me that you're playing for your church and that you are with a worship band. That it so nice to hear and I thank you for sharing with me. I have lots of chord charts that I've saved over the years that mostly are in the Key of G, D and E. There's a few I have in A. The cool thing is that if you know how to play in all the keys, then it doesn't matter what key the worship leader chooses to sing in because you know your theory. Many of you understand the 'number system.' I'll talk about that some more at another time but here's a few oldies that I remember... the songs start with Y.

I’m forgiven because You were forsaken
D/F#     G2     Asus               A
I’m accepted, You were condemned
D/F#   G2                      Asus            A
I’m alive and well, Your Spirit is within me
       G2           A                    D      
Because You died and rose again.

     D                         G
   Amazing love, how can it be,
     D                              Asus A G/A
   That You my King would die for me?
     D                     G
   Amazing love, I know it’s true,
     D                       Asus  A G/A
   And It’s my joy to honor You,
             G   A              D
   In all I do, I honor You.

D                       (G)
You are my King
You are my King

So, keep in mind these three charts are used in a band so everyone is on the same page. Keyboard players will want to play in a different register, upper range most likely and sometimes drop some bass notes. Remember, if you're soloing for the offering or playing songs at weddings, etc. you can always stylize and embellish when playing in another key, like Eb.
