In the April/May edition of Guitar9 we learned the theme to perhaps the most well known hymn of all time, "Amazing Grace". This time around will be learning and playing the first of two variations. Let's discuss a couple of potential problem areas.
Once you have learned the 1st variation try to play the piece from the beginning up to measure 30. Actually measure 31 begins the second and final variation which we will discuss next time. As always have fun learning and playing. If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to contact me. See you soon with the 2nd variation.
