Lesson #095, Amazing Grace I

Hi Everyone,

Here is the next song we will go over in the beginners section, that being the great Gospel song Amazing Grace. My brother Joe and I play the song for you so you can get a feel for this arrangement.

This song is in 3/4 timing. All of the previous lessons thus far in the beginning banjo lessons have been in 4/4 timing. In order for you to get the feel for this song, we will go over a few aspects of 3/4 timing before we begin breaking this arrangement down. I hope you enjoy the series on one of the all time, classic Gospel songs, Amazing Grace.

About Me

My photo
In 2009, at the age of 60, I decided to learn to play the 5-string banjo. I searched the internet for lessons and struck gold when I found David Cavage's free banjo lessons at Musicmoose.org. His video hosting site revver.com was having some serious problems at the time so I downloaded as many of the lessons as I could whenever they became available. Revver.com stopped operating shortly afterwards and, sadly, Musicmoose.org is no more. I contacted David early 2020 and he told me he no longer had the original master videos and feared they may have been lost forever. This amazing course of free banjo lessons, from absolute beginner to advanced player, is too good to be forgotten, so this is my attempt to get David's work back out there again so that he can teach, inspire and spread the joy of banjo pickin' to more generations of budding musicians, just like he did with me. I've rounded up all the Moose stuff I could find and put it here, so start pickin' and enjoy!-------MooseHerder.
