Amazing Grace is one of my favorite melodies of all-time. The words were written in 1772 by John Newton. It was common back then for words to be used with a variety of different melodies and it wasn’t until around 1847 that we first find a publication joining the words with the melody commonly used today called, New Britain.
This arrangement in this guitar lesson comes from my first volume of easy arrangements. As the title implies, I tried to make this as easy as possible to play while still keeping the integrity of the original tune.
