Standard Guitar Song To Learn For Beginners

 

Amazing Grace is one of the songs that many guitar students learn in the beginning stages of their musical journey. That's because, in its simplest form, it's only three chords and fairly easy to learn.

 

Amazing Grace And Changing Keys

 

In this lesson after I teach you how to play amazing grace and how to change the key to better suit your singing voice using a capo.

This is an easy guitar version. If you'd like to learn a little more complex version with perhaps fingerpicking let me know in the comments field. If there's enough interest I'll create the lesson.

Also I'd love to do a guitar solo version with the chord and the melody played Fingerstyle guitar if there's enough interest.

 

 

I’ve created a lesson cheatsheet that includes all the lyrics and the chords. I put the chords above the first verse. All the other verses are exactly the same with different words.

I've included also chord diagrams for those who just learning guitar as well as a basic 3/4 strum diagram.

  4. Thank you. As a beginning older guitar player I appreciate the simplicity of this song. At my age (65) I am not aiming to play in a band or on stage. I just want to learn to play as a way to relax and keep my mind active. Instruction such as you have provided here provide that. I would also like to learn the melody for Amazing Grace.

    Thanks once again.
