Watch the Amazing Grace - 1 online guitar lesson by Richard Kiser from Gospel Fingerstyle Guitar

I chose this song for a couple of reasons. First, this song is very recognizable in any music genre. Second, the melody is fairly easy to play. It is also a great song to learn another method of fingerstyle playing. In this one, there is no alternating bass line, no "boom chick" rhythm, it is simply a moving melody where the thumb and fingers share a lot of the movemet of the melody. In this song your left and right hands play the song almost like it would be played on a piano, where the bass actually will share some of the melody. You will find that after practice this style of playing will also come as second nature.
