Learn this Guitar Phrase (Part 3 in Dmaj)

Hey Everyone,

Here is Part 3 of my series of lessons teaching part of the guitar intro for Amazing Grace that I am writing:


Here is the notation for the piece up to this point:


I don't have all the chord symbols written out. I still have to finish composing this, and decide along the way if I want to create an arrangement of a couple of verses of John Newton's hymn Amazing Grace. I may just write this as an independent piece, where it would be played simply as an intro to the hymn. I would then switch to accompaniment for voice, probably strumming through the chord changes.

I hope you enjoy it and can get something from it that you can use in your own music!

New Book! Bach's Chorale Melodies for Two Guitars


My arrangements of Bach's 69 chorale melodies with figured bass are now available:

"Bach's Chorale Melodies for Two Guitars"

These pieces can be played by any treble clef instruments, but they were arranged with in the guitar in mind.

This first edition contains sheet music only. I plan to create a cover and include introductory text, but I want to share this now with many that I know will enjoy the collection for years to come. It was a labor of love, and I pray that it will enrich the lives of those who perform them, teach them, and listen to them!

Sample:


All 69 of Bach's two part Chorales have been transcribed for two treble clef instruments, and are formatted like the sample pieces above.

You can purchase the Bach Book ($8.50 / PDF format) right here:


The ebook will be emailed after receiving payment. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below, or email me at Thisisjoshgarrett@gmail.com

Thank you for your support!
