Amazing Grace. Arranged and played by Michael Chapdelaine on the McKnight Diamond guitar. "My fngerstyle guitar arrangement of Amazing Grace, the classic hymn from the Christian tradition. Always loved this song. My friends, luthiers Tim and Mary McKnight asked me to play some Christian music in my demo of their guitar at a Healdsburg Guitar Festival some years ago and I was knocked out by the power of this song as a guitar solo. It occurred to me that it might sound really great tuned down a whole step (with the 6th string down another Major 3rd and the 5th string down another whole step...Bb-F-C-F-A-D) and I was pretty pleased with what happened."
