In Grace

I just released, The Garden Tomb; my first EP since 2012. I’m much more confident in my own editing and mastering these days, so I intend to release music quite frequently. I originally wrote this piece in 2018. In the process of attempting a better recording, I tinkered and rewrote the song. In Grace, follows the arc of despair to hope, uncertainty into Grace.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found that prayer and meditation effectively puts me “in grace”. My days are just not as good without it. When I don’t pray, I feel like there’s something missing in my day — a void. Even if you’re not particularly religious, unloading your gratitude, hopes, and fears onto God (or whatever you choose) is powerful tool. It’s like having personal therapist.

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

The guitar tab is beautifully written across two pages.¬†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. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

My song structure looks like this, in accordance with the guitar tab:

Intro, Verse 1, To Chorus, Chorus.

Intro, Verse, To Chorus, Chorus, Intro.

**In Grace – Evan Handyside (Ambient, World guitar)

In Grace is played in standard tuning with a capo on the 5th fret.

Although, feel free to change the capo position or go without. For me, In Grace still sounds good — and takes on different characteristics¬†when the capo position is changed.
