How To Play Melodies And Lead Lines On Rhythm Guitar

You’re a guitar player.  Sometimes you lead worship on your own or with a small team.  Chances are you’re frustrated with your musical limitations.

There are so many great parts you hear on the recording but without a lead guitarist or a keys player what can you do?  You’re left to play those same four chords.
