Amazing Grace

Hi All,

From listening to you all on the Global Map, I think "Amazing Grace" might give "Ocarina of Time" a run for its money as the current community fave:

Enjoy!

Very nice, I love the way it sounds on the Ocarina. And it sounds even better when improvising notes in between.

First one sounds better..second one has one too many notes in the change you made

Good job on both of the versions.

I must say that I prefer the 2nd version though. Notes 3-5 in the original version just doesn't sound right to me. Maybe it's just my experience with the song, but having 4 notes in the 2nd bunch of notes is accurate to me. 3 isn't enough.

Both versions are good though. =)

What is Amazing Grace? Does it have any lyrics? If so, could someone please share them with me? Thanks.

Clergyman John Newton (1725–1807), published in 1779
"Amazing Grace" is "without a doubt the most famous of all the folk hymns"

Amazing Grace Lyrics

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
a life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

I love Amazing Grace and it sure will cut the competition. It is really nice and very well done. It is hard to sing but really really cool. 925 sterling silver (http://www.925wholesalejewelry.com)

BTW, the revision 2 version is the same in F.

Hello,

This seems to be the most active listings for Amazing Grace so I thought I would post what I did.

I started with the idea that I wanted to play it twice, but wanted them different. I choose Ionian C and started on note 1 and ended on note 6 followed by 18 19 21. At that point I started on note 6 and played it again.

An 1/8 note is followed by the next note, a quarter note is followed by '18', a half note by '19'

Also note that there are four triplets in the second 'verse' -

Notes 7 9 7, twice, and 13 11 9, twice. There is no way to indicate this in the tabulature.

If you want, at the end you can go back to the beginning and play to the pause.

Rob i really enjoyed your version very much it fit really well together.
I also wanted your okay i already uploaded it but i used your sheet to make a version that i liked myself. I only changed the mode and root i did though when posting it mentioned you as creator of the original version (unedited) If you do not like that i did this just let me know and i will remove right away (if i can new to smule) i hope it is okay also i am adding a link to your version in my post.

How can Amazing Grace give a Zelda game a run for it's money if the Zelda theme is the most popular song.

01/13/2012 12:34 PM

I love that song
