Nice tune John, what grade would this be suitable for?

Thank you,

Ed,

I would say this is about a six or seven on a 1-10 scale. There is some upper position work but minimal barring and I try to take advantage of open strings for position changes.

Also, thank you Doug!

Thanks for posting John.

I have been gravitating to playing mostly Christian music in CG style these days.

Thanks again.

Blessings

A very nice arrangement. I love listening to (and learning) beautifully arranged hymns for the classical guitar.

I appreciate the feedback and thanks for bringing this back to life. I just happened to pull it out and play through it the day before this thread came back up. Must be some cosmic connection. Glad you enjoy it.
