Amazing Grace is in ¾ or Walt's time. It's sometimes called Walt's time, instead of waltz time, because it was invented by Walt Disney...That's a lie, just checking if you were still paying attention! This different time signature requires a different strum pattern, and because of that the way walking bass is used changes as well. The majority of Waltz time walks are “swung”. Notice the triplet markings. This signifies a new subdivision of rhythm. For the very last beat of the measure there is now divided in three. Those notes come much faster, and the first note carries for 2 of those subdivided beats. Loop the measure and listen repeatedly to so you can hear the subtlety. Examples of other common waltz time walks can be found in the lick switcher.
