Amazing Grace (Josh Wilson Acoustic version)

By Robert Kittleberger (of GuitarChalk)

Amazing Grace (Acoustic Dub)
Josh Wilson
from the 2009 release "Life Is Not a Snapshot"

So this is my take on Josh Wilson's take of Amazing Grace. It's definitely my favorite version of the song and he does an excellent job with it. On the track, he's using a loop pedal, though the version I play in the video doesn't require one.

Now to give a fair warning, the tabs are a loose framework of how the song is played. The quick strumming is a bit more specific, but if you understand the tabs and can hear and apply the rhythm on your own, than you're good to go!

Thanks for reading! Any questions about the song or tabs I'll answer in the comments below.

Hey buddy! Awesome job man! Thank God for wonderful people like you! But I was wondering if you're able to tab out the part after the bridge? :) Thank you so much!

Bobby Kittleberger said...

Hey thanks man. Definitely appreciate it. The bridge is tabbed and posted...are you possibly referring to the very end of the song? That part I didn't bother tabbing. Let me know if that's what you're referring to and I'll be happy to give it a shot.

Hey man! Greetings from Malaysia! Awesome job bro! Definitely love the way u played it. One question tho, the tab says that its 7 but in ur video it sounds like 6. Are all tunings the same? Hope to hear from u soon. God bles! :D

Bobby Kittleberger said...

Which part of the tab specifically are you referring to man? Let me know and I'll be happy to help!

Ok guys, just FYI, the tuning is WRONG. I apologize, as this is completely my fault. I just forgot to change tabs before I posted. Kenny should be changing them soon, but until then, the tuning is supposed to be drop-D and down 1/2 step.

Eb
Bb
Gb
Db
