Amazing Grace, in the arrangement by Tommy Emmanuel. When you let Tommy arrange a timeless classic you can expect some serious fireworks! This song scared me the most when it came up for a tutorial, but the first verse isn’t too demanding yet. However, your fretting hand pinky is going to get quite a workout!

Musicnotes (tab/notation):


Guitar used:
Mayson MS7, Standard tuning
Recording: a pair of Neumann 184’s through an Apogee Quartet

Another great lesson Tim. Well played, and each section brilliantly articulated. May your channel continue to grow as it deserves to <3

Bar Kazzaz says:

Dude wow!
This is a great lesson for an advanced song with a nice and slow approach.
I would recommend using this to understand the different ways Tommy surrounds the melody, and then trying to play with him to get the feel and the timing down.
Awesome lesson!
