Amazing Grace

girl holding fiddle

After Chitter wrote the post about her new fiddle, I told her she needed to let Blind Pig readers hear it for themselves.

Chatter was off gallivanting so I got Chitter to play “Amazing Grace” for you.

I think the fiddle has a great sound. Hope you enjoyed the video!

    Absolutely fine! I associate “Amazing Grace” with bagpipes; I feel that it’s the national send-off of Scotland, which brings us to this:

    It’s been said (and I believe) that the mountain fiddle replaced the bagpipes in Appalachia because they can be made to sound somewhat similar, and our first settlers in these hills were Scots-Irish and poor, and bagpipes were outrageous expensive, while fiddles, literally, grew on trees…

    I love the resonance and mellow tone, I think the Fiddle did find her. Amazing Grace is one of my favorite songs also especially since I’ve experienced Jesus’ Grace in large measure for the last two years. Thanks for all the Presley family’s friendship and prayers (Paul’s too).

    I like it!!! Got my fiddle out and played along with you but mine don’t sound that good.
    Just wondering if anyone else sings ( We Shall Wear a Crown ) at the end of Amazing Grace?

    I do not know beans about music. But sounds to me like that instrument has a deep, rich sound. I want to think “mellow”. My wife says, “Has a good sound.” I expect Chitter will be able to make it say what she feels and make it tell others what they feel for which there are no words.
