In Grace, Evan Handyside
“The Indomitable Suzie Yazzie” | Derek von Briesen

Every post since July 2018 has (and will have) a free MP3 Download available on SoundCloud. Listening is an underrated form of practice. Making these songs a part of playlist is a good idea.

Special thanks Sedona based photographer/guitarist Derek von Briesen for the photo.

In Grace

I’m hoping to release a Holiday/Christmas EP in November. In theory, In Grace would be one of the songs.

The life of a professional musician/artist is psychologically hard. One minute you’re up, and the next you’re back in the anonymous doldrums. However, so long as your path is righteous, you’re always lifted back up eventually.

I parallel this with anyone’s concept of God or spirituality. The root of inspired is “In Spirit”. I take this one step further to say that we are In Grace. The song follows this arc of desperate to hopeful, uncertainty into Grace, and over again.

I suspect that the wisest and most stoic among us — perhaps Suzie (pictured above) —  have figured out that we are always In Grace, regardless of our circumstance.

How to play In Grace (Ambient, World guitar) by Evan Handyside

(Note: This is my premium material. Please join my email list to be updated on all of my latest guitar tabs.)

I would characterize In Grace as best for intermediate level guitar players and up. There aren’t any difficult chord shapes, but the song is slightly more difficult to play then it may seem from the video.

The guitar tab is beautifully written across two pages. After 8 years of writing this blog, I just discovered I could darken the contrast on the guitar tabs to make them even easier to read. Better late than never!

My order of play looks like this in accordance with the guitar tab: Intro, Verse 1, Chorus — Intro, Verse 2, Chorus, — Intro (fade out).

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

In Grace is played in standard tuning with a capo on the 3rd fret.
