Amazing Grace

By | March 3, 2006

This morning I played the Ukelele. Amazing Grace, easy song. First Jared sang, then Ethan sang and then Mommy sang. And then we all sang. We were like the Von Trapp family singers. Except without only one person who sang well. Katie keeps saying I am playing 4/4 and the song is 3/4. I have no idea what she is talking about. She should be on American Idol. She is awesome.

But we are not supporting her as a family. She is responsible for too much in the house. We need to all chip in on cleaning, organizing, laundry, cooking, etc.

I once was lost, but now I am found. Was blind, but now I see.

One thought on “Amazing Grace

    “Time” in music refers to how many beats are in each measure of music. Most hymns are in 4/4 time, so “Amazing Grace” is a bit unusual to be in 3/4 time, but it is.

    It’s very easy to tell what time a piece of music is in, the information is conveniently printed at the beginning of each piece, right next to the treble/bass clef and key notation.
