Hi everyone! Here is a standard gospeltune just for fun.

"Swing Low, Sweet Chariot"

Swing low, sweet chariot coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot coming for to carry me home


I looked over Jordan and what did I see
coming for to carry me home
A band of angels is coming after me,
coming for to carry me home.

Chorus

If you come to heaven before I do,
coming for to carry me home,
Tell all my friends I'll be coming there too
coming for to carry me home.

Chorus

Well I'm sometimes up and I'm sometimes down
coming for to carry me home,
But I'd steal my soul if it ever were down
coming for to carry me home.

Chorus

For singing one line of the lyrics play always four measures of the music.Try to sing and play the melodie at one time.Its not so easy,but when you practice at low speed I think it will work. Maybe you should listen to some mp3 of "Swing Low,Sweet..." to get a feeling for the rhythm, melody and lyrics. Later go to PAGE 2 for a more jazzy version of the song and try to mix this arrangement with the more fingerstyle version on this page.Have fun!
