New Wine is a female-led song on the Hillsong album, but in our videos we’re playing in the key of G, which works for a male lead.

Play it yourself
The album version of this song is in the key of Bb, which is suited for a female lead vocal. For a male-led version, I like playing in Gb, and in our play through videos I tuned my guitar down 1/2 step and played using key of G chords.
Alternatively, you could use key of D chords and put your capo on the 4th fret.
With this song, you’ll want to really focus on dynamics. Play/strum a lot less during the softer sections of the song and pick up the strumming pattern during the bigger sections.
