Guitar Chords for CW hymns

In 2002 John Kehl and Les Kehl published “Chords for Hymns”, a fake book (melody and guitar chords) for the first 68 hymns of Christian Worship. John Kehl is thinking of putting out guitar chords for more of the CW hymns, but with the guitar chord above the lyrics of the first verse of the hymns, so that someone can easily tranfer the chords to their CW hymnal in about 1 minute per hymn. This is a lot easier, faster and cheaper to make than writing out the melody line. When completed (or partially completed), the Chords for Hymns can be downloaded from “my shared files” widget on the right side.
Here is an example of guitar chords for some CW hymns:
