Only Hope (Instrumental)

Here's my first instrumental video after a really long time! Reason being that I've been really busy with all the other "administrative" stuff on the blog, like chording the Christian Music songs, and keeping up with tabbing the new videos my brother has been regularly posting.

I picked up the guitar one day and realized that I could do something with the song. It was quite easy incorporating the melody with the song, so this is what I came up with, after some practicing. I'm still amateurish when it comes to coming up with instrumentals, and you'll see that the chords used are actually pretty simple. Made a small mistake in the middle of the bridge, but the tabs are written correctly for that part, so you can follow that.

Enjoy the song!

You can hear the singing version here :)

hii can u plz make an instructional video for a least the verse??! i play it how the tab says but sounds nothing like when u do or the song =/

Graham Choo said...

Hey there, I've actually stopped doing instructionals for instrumentals because I realised that it's too hard to communicate across clearly.
The chords are usually not standard, and the strings to pluck varies too much, with no standard pattern to follow.
I still feel that the tabs would do a better job at that.

Sweeeeeeet!!!! like this tab
to all other anonymouses xD
of course this tab is not very easy... but instead of already asking or an instructional vid, you should really try to make an effort and keep practicing... it's worth the effort.
