My wife thought Ben’s basic Amazing Grace was a good place for her to start picking out melodies. We have had much fun sitting there with me backing her up. We are going pretty slow and I thought a cross picking version might sound good. I came up with the following. I put it out there for the BB forum-ite’s use. Please feel free to make suggestions, modify it, post alternatives, soup it up or water it down.

The fingering on this should be super easy. I haven’t notated it very well, so if you are doing something difficult, it’s probably not the way I intended An example: in measure 1 the last little grace note (3rd fret D string) is just a starting point for sliding into the 5th fret. If you play that with your ring (3rd) finger, the pointer (1st) will fall easily over the 3rd fret B. Those notes are intended to ring out continuously while cross picking, although I didn’t properly notate it. Again, I hope to revisit as time allows. The work that Ben does to make the TEFs “right” must be pretty significant.
