Most anything by Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Hillsong United, etc. are ALL "easy". Really most of all modern P/W is pretty easy but easy is a relative term.

It tends to be a chicken or egg first argument. I remember someone was asking how to play a song. It went through that well known, to guitarist anyway, open chord progression. I suggested playing that open chord, hand almost set in a cast shape, stay with the A2 instead of the full A chord for example. Another poster who was doing the same said it was because it was written that way. And on his chord/lyric sheet it probably was.

Most songs can be transposed to an easy key and that Suzuki methodology can be applied to them. To who's ear will be "played well" apply. Does it mean you have to play a distinctive melody, bass or other lead line?

Easy... think the first 5 worship songs you'd try to play if you've never played guitar before.

Yeah, lots of Hillsong ones are pretty simple:

Evermore
More than life
etc.

I could go on and on and on..............

www.guitarmasters.org

This is the course what I took and it is really easy, even part three. Go to their site and order their song books. I have both and both make the songs realy easy.
The songs that I listes are only about half of that are showed in the second book. The second book is harder, and I would have listed the ones from the first book but I could not find my first book.

Hope this helps.
