Here’s a video lesson on one of the all time great American spiritual songs.


Chords and Strumming for Amazing Grace Ukulele Tutorial

Amazing Grace uses these five chords.


Amazing Grace is in 3/4 time so the feel, or swing, of the song is different from a song in 4/4 or common time. When you are first learning the song, just use three down strokes per chord for the three beats in each measure. Then, when you know the song better, the down, down-up, down strumming pattern will make more sense.

Enjoy and happy strumming!

      You’re welcome.

  3. The new hymn course is so much fun. So many hymns… “I feel like a kid in a penny candy store”.
    Don’t know where to start first. I have always wanted to play Jesus Loves Me with a little more
    feeling. The Chord Melody-F Major, with only three chords is exactly what I was lookin for.
    Thank you Jenny.
