Watch the Over in the Glory Land - 3 online guitar lesson by Richard Kiser from Gospel Fingerstyle Guitar
This first verse is fairly simple in that the entire medley is played on the first and second strings and between the 2nd and 8th frets. The basic chords are "G", "C", and "A"and "D". The melody can be played in these chord positions which makes it a great song for the Chet Atkins style of playing. The best suggestion is to learn the melody and then just play the chords that support it keeping that alternating bass pattern.
