WHAT WONDROUS LOVE IS THIS – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

What Wondrous Love Is This performed by Robert Lunn

What Wondrous Love Is This has a beautiful melody that works well on the guitar. This is an old hymn that was first published back in 1811.

An interesting nugget about this piece is that it is in the Dorian mode. The dorian mode can be built by first writing out a natural minor scale (ex. A, B, C, D, E, F, G) and then raising the 6th note. So a dorian scale on A would go A, B, C, D, E, F-sharp, G, A. This particular melody is in D dorian so the scale goes: D, E, F, G, A, B, C, D.

AMAZING GRACE – Easy Arrangement- Full Tutorial with TABs – Fingerstyle Guitar

Amazing Grace Performed by Robert Lunn

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.

SAKURA – Easy Arrangement – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Sakura performed by Robert Lunn

Sakura is a popular folk song found in Japan. The translation means “Cherry Blossoms.” I’ve always loved this melody. The first time I heard it performed on the classical guitar was by John Williams who was playing an arrangement by Yuquijiro Yocoh. That is a very virtuosic arrangement (and beautiful arrangement). For this arrangement I wanted to arrange it for the late-beginner, early intermediate level student.
