AMAZING GRACE – Easy Arrangement – Full Sheet Music/Tab – Classical 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.

Amazing Grace/Jesus Loves Me for Erhu and Guitar

We wanted to do something special for Easter this year. It’s going to be a different kind of Easter with the virus. She lives in Hawaii and I live in Michigan so I recorded my part, sent it to her, she recorded her part and then sent that back to me. I then put the video together. It has been a lot of fun collaborating with her.

The Erhu is a beautiful instrument. You can hear her perform with an orchestra here:

New Video, Finished Piece and More…

I just uploaded a video I recorded back in December. I recorded myself playing for about a 1/2 hour and then cut it down to this. The order of songs is:

I finally finished the Piano Trio piece I was working on:

The piece is going to be performed in April. It’s going to be on a program of Beethoven pieces so I incorporated a few of my favorite Beethoven melodies and themes into this piece. Some are obvious and some are not so obvious. You can download and listen to the full score here:

Two Strings, One Piano, and a Slice of Beethoven

On a side note I got booties for my dog which he hates. Here is a picture of him being like, “if I don’t see him, he’s not there.”

I teach at Lake Michigan College. I have taught there on and off since 1997 and last week I taught in a place in the building that I have never taught before and saw this:

I have taught in this building for over 20 years and just now seeing this!!! My wife does tell me I am not the most observant person but DANG. Very cool. Looking down in this picture.

I hope everyone is doing well.
