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.
