Home Grown Hymns, Naturally Acoustic

About this Site

This site is dedicated to Christian music rendered in a Bluegrass/Acoustic genre. If you love traditional hymns with a twist of Bluegrass and acoustic sounds, you have come to the right place.

It additionally serves as a demonstration site, whereby one may listen to and possibly subsribe to my services if so desired.

About the Author

Hello, my name is Steve Snider. My desire is to offer praise and worship to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Here's a brief autobiography that should help you know more about me.

I was born and raised in Memphis Tennessee where I was exposed to and quickly learned to love Bluegrass music. In my early days one could find me playing Bluegrass guitar at the "Lucy Opry" and/or the "Bluegrass Shack".

Moving to Missouri, I spent many years playing Hymns and Worship Tunes in various churches. More recently, moving to Seattle, I have been attending Bluegrass Jams playing Guitar and/or Bass. I have also played Bluegrass Guitar/Bass at several Seattle local venues and at the "Mt. St. Helen's Bluegrass Festival".

Other notes of interest are that I'm a husband (of 40+ yrs), father (of 3) and grandfather (of 2). Additionally, I served 20+ years in the Marine Corps Reserve and the Air National Guard where I found more opportunities (beyond my regular duties) to contribute in Christian service.

Finally, if you're here, it's likely that I shared my URL with you and asked you to take a look/listen. If you think or believe that I could be of service to you or your venue, please contact me via email at:
Thanks for you consideration and God Bless.


Welcome to this collection of hymns played in the Acoustic style! These are not professional recordings and should be considered as "Demonstrations" of what one might expect to hear were I to perform these (and/or others) at your venue.

As I am now retired, and have the time to do so, It's my desire to use my talent for Christian/Charitable service. I've practiced hymns in such a way as would make it possible for me to lead others to sing along. Were I to play at a church service, or otherwise Christian venue, I would bring either electronic or paper copies of the songs so others could follow along and join in song (or I could just do them solo).

I actually have more experience performing with other musicians (vocals and instruments) and could branch off and play other instruments if others want to join. I can play (and have at my disposal) a Banjo, Mountain Dulcimer and Bass. It would also be my delight to let others perform the vocals.

The links provided below are those to sites and/or apps that have been the by-products of my musical efforts.

The first of these is a book of Sacred Songs in "Easy Guitar" style. The songs are quite numerous and they are all listed in multiple keys.

The second one is an app I created to help me transpose keys. There are other online apps to do this, but I tired of them as they had too many comercials.

*** Chord Transposer ***

These other links are those that have been useful to me in my musical efforts and I suspect may be useful to others as well.
