Here's a lesson from Module 6 of this award-winning course:

Remember:

The best sounding intervals in worship music are 3rds, 6ths and 10ths. 

Piano is an instrument that naturally lends itself to beauty. 

While acoustic guitar communicates a sense of rawness, authenticity, piano creates a sense of beauty, scale & wonder.

3rds sound delicate & pleasant, but can sound cheesy if overused.  Oftentimes, it's best to bounce between 3rds and another interval like a 4th or 5th before going to a 3rd.

6ths sound elegant & beautiful, and can be used consecutively without issues many times.

10ths sound powerful & melodic, particularly with a 1  - 5 - 10 chord voicing.   They also can be used consecutively without issues.
