Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Variety of worship music from many artists, guitar chords and piano scores are well done

Cons:Turning pages in the middle of a song, book may not stay open at first

The Bottom Line: A "must have" for any worship leader or anyone who loves to worship while playing guitar or piano


I've had 100 EZ Praise and Worship Songs Vol. 2 for about four years now, and I still use it a lot. In fact, it's starting to fall apart! Most of the songs are still very much sung in churches and on the radio. I'll hear a song and say, "Oh, that's in my book!" A few are old ones from 80's, but most are newer than that.

Most of the songs are worshipful, telling God how wonderful He is. A few are calls to worship, and there are also some that are calling for revival.

The layout is very easy to use. Piano score has both base and treble clefs (as opposed to a fake book, which only has a melody line). The melody line is on top of the piano score. The score, for the most part, follows the sound of the original artist who played the song. If there is a special group of notes in the original recording, the book will probably have them. This is fun even if you use it like a fake book because you can put in these little sequences to break up the chords. The difficulty level would be about Late Intermediate to Early Advanced (some songs are more difficult than others). The songs are laid out with introductions and endings, and the music tells where the verse and choruses begins. The print is a little small, but as long as there’s plenty of light, it’s not bad. I would rate the chords "very good"-I've rarely found chords elsewhere that I liked better. The singablity is fairly good. I transpose down a few of them, but that's because of my voice range. Most people would be able to sing the songs in the key that they're written in.

Many of the songs are on at least three pages, so pages have to be turned in the middle of the song, sometimes mid-word. There are quite a few, though, that are only on one or two pages. One thing that is very helpful is that if the song only has two pages, those two pages will be facing each other, so you only have to turn pages if the song is three or more pages long. This book is not spiral bound, so the book may close on it's own until you've used it a bit. I usually use other music books to keep it open, but that can make turning pages interesting.

The songs are, for the most part, in alphabetical order. A few of the songs in my copy are not, but the index in the front of the book has the right page numbers. I think that the order has something to do with the European way of alphabetizing songs. They use the first line of a song for their alphabetizing.
