In this edition of Guitar 9 we will be learning the second of two variations to "Amazing Grace." For those of you who are new to this column, this is the third and final installment in this three part series. If you missed the previous two columns, let me do a quick review. In the April/May edition of Guitar 9 we learned a fingerstyle arrangement of "Amazing Grace." In the June/July edition we learned the first variation. That brings us up to date. Finally, in part three we will be learning the second variation which features the melody in the bass. Let me give you a couple of performance notes to aid in the learning of this variation.
I hope that you have enjoyed learning this arrangement as much as I have enjoyed presenting it. If you get it under your fingers, I would love to hear it performed. You could send a CD or cassette tape (what's that?) to the following address: Soundhole Publications, P.O. Box 3291 Boardman, Ohio 44513. As always, have fun learning and playing! See you next time.
