  1. Hey everyone, this is my first and hopefully not last post to this forum. I have only been playing for a little less than a year now but Im doing ok i guess. My real question is I am trying to learn Amazing Grace, and cannot find tabs for it anywhere. If anyone knows where i can find the tabs let me know.
    thanks.
     
  2. Welcome

    As a Former TabCrawler and a newbie, I have found that even when u locate a Tab 70% of the time it isn't right. Better off looking for the Music. I don't read music myself but am trying to learn (www.libster.com) .
     
  3. I was in a chorus for about 7 years so I can read music farely well, its just taking the notes on the music and transforming them into a fret number on the bass that i struggle with, is there anywhere or anything i can get that will help with that.
    thanks

  6. What would be a good site to find the tabs/music for amazing grace, i have looked everywhere and can not find it in tab form. I know its not good but i need to learn it just quickly for now. thanks.

    my advice is to just listen to the song and not use tabs and to try and work it out by ear.Getting the tabs may be easier but this is far more rewarding,and the tabs would probably be wrong anyway.
     
  8. That brings me into another little problem, I cannot do that for the life of me. i try to do it and i cannot hear the bass part well enough to figure it out. is there any tips or secrets on that. thanks.
     
  9. sing it,

    After a few minutes noodeling just now I think it starts on G on the E string then to C on the A string.
    I may be wrong about the strings and I didn't continue but you get the idea.



    EDIT? How did this get at the top ?
