    The Gospel is strong with this one. A nice Scruggs arrangement with a strong melody. It would be good for you to learn the lyrics and sing this song. Why? Because if you can sing this song with the lyrics you have memorized the melody. If you've memorized the melody, you will more instinctively know which notes to accent in this Scruggs arrangement to bring that melody to the forefront.

  • Scruggs Style-2

    Difficulty

    Going back to the key of G for this one. It's always good to learn songs in multiple keys and be comfortable in all of them.

    Play Scruggs Style-2
  • Melodic Style

    Difficulty

    A melodic arrangement that stays very true to the original vocal melody. Try using a sweeter tone by picking closer to the neck. Really try and make this melody sing. Remember, just because you are playing a banjo doesn't mean you have to play loud and obnoxious all the time :) If a sweet melody isn't enough then the lick switcher will have some great options for you to customize this arrangement.

  • Backup

    Difficulty

    This backup would fit nicely behind a vocal or fiddle. Remember not to play louder than the singer or instrument you accompany. Try moving your picking hand closer to the neck when playing backup. You will get a much sweeter sound.
