Chanting guide for beginners

I want to learn some chants and I found this site: Pali Chants | dhammatalks.org
Are there similar sites or Youtube Videos for beginner chanting? I am missing nammo tassa bhagavato… And Buddham saranam gacchami and the silas for example.

Also interested. It is interesting that the page from the chanting guide which contains the Refuge text you mention does not have a recording:

Yes, it seems to me that only those chants directly at the link I posted have recordings.

Aloka Vihara has recordings and a chant book. Toward the end of the book there is a pronunciation guide.

This is probably my favorite chanting video and it’s pretty easy to follow along to too! It has the Refuges, the 5 and 8 Precepts and other common chants.

This video is another favorite because it is also nice and slow with lyrics for chanting in Pali and includes Pali, Chinese, and English subtitles. It includes the text’s name so you can find it too. They have a chanting book out there too, I found it once but decided to stick with the shorter BSWA chanting. This video has more parittas if you want to chant along with them.
