Here’s example #2 of an improvising idea.

Click here for pdf example: Improvising_ Hymns_Day _by_ Day 

This idea can be used anywhere in a hymn

where a one chord last for at least three to

four beats in addition to the following measure

starting on a one (I) chord.

 It  adds a nice flowing movement from

one measure to the next.

  2. Thanks for this tip! And btw I can print now 🙂 I do have a question, does this iv/v work for 3/4 time signature too, or just 4/4?

    Thanks for the question regarding the iv/v chords.
    Yes, it will work for 3/4 and beyond.
    As long as there are at least three beats to allow time
    for the chord moves.

    I will create an article showing more examples of the iv/v.
