As with all of Nick’s lessons, this Amazing Grace session is a musical education all on its own. It has various versions, each with unique chord subs and embellishments. The arrangements allow for many ‘aha’ moments as one recognizes the chord changes from other smooth jazz, gospel-soul and jazz-pop ballads, and this lesson ‘names names’ for the chord embellishments to help one put it all together. Well done again Nick, and thanks for these milestone moments you help create in our musical educations.
The material presented in this booklet is great! There is enough material here in this one tune that will "tune" your ears (listening) to expand your music palette!
I was looking for an interesting reharmonization of Amazing Grace in order to accompany my grandaughter. Nick provide not just the answer, but far more valuably the entire though progression behind the evolution of the reharmonization from, the simplest, most basic, to lush, rich harmonic textures. This was worth every penny and more.
I rarely leave reviews but I think Nick is doing a great service for musicians of all levels. I am an intermediate guitarist and novice reader of notation but I find his chord ideas make great harmonic sense and I find myself also trusting my ears a lot more thanks to his very logical layout of the material. Very grateful for these affordable and invaluable resources. Thanks, Nick.
Hi Thomas, Im sorry for the delay in checking this video out. We have been a bit positively overwhelmed with things to attend. Thanks a lot for that video ! Sounds great, and it has been very inspiring for us. Thanks for the review. Best , Jazz Duets
This is a very good and I think unique approach. I have learned a lot and I am still working through it. Well conceived and executed.
Fantastic. Thanks Nick. Of course if in addition there was the baking track sung on which to play you would have been an Oscar .. !!!!!!!
I´m still busy working my way through all the information in the tutorial and find new bits of understanding everytime I sit down and go through he 6 grades of harmonisation. Thanks Nick!
