Lesson Eleven - Amazing Grace

I hope you enjoy playing this great melody.  Here are a few practice tips:

  • Amazing Grace has an incomplete measure.  Notice the first measure has only a quarter note.  This is called a pick-up note and should be played on beat three.
  • Watch out for notes that are "tied" together.  You can read about ties in Lesson Five.
  • All the notes for Amazing Grace can be found in the fifth position.
  • Strive to connect the notes and play smoothly - legato.
