Sorry guys- but I HAVE to post this as well. This is how I play this (singing and chords included) but, without a pick. This is the first time I've seen this- I had no idea I was copying his style. The music begins at the 3:05 mark.

thisoldman, Love that you posted these today of all days. Really enjoyed listening and watching these.
Today in church I lead the musical worship and the song we did immediately following the sermon was "Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)". Same song, but with a chorus added. I've always loved this song. Such a powerful song.
Go Rest High on that Mountain is a great song too. Really loved it. I'm going to add that to my song book when I get the chance.
Thanks for sharing man!
===================================== One Alvarez in the hand is worth two Taylors and a Martin in the guitar store!
The first time I heard Go Rest High on That Mountain, on the radio, I was blown away. This particular performance was, to me, more than awesome- and Patty Loveless knocked it out of the park in her *back up*- they both put the emotion I feel every time I hear it into it-
This particular performance of Amazing Grace is the way I do it- that blew me away. Same verses, strum pattern and even sounded like me kinda. I looked the lyrics up on the internet and found one version that had so many verses I stopped counting- LOL. It's a song that lends itself to more verses as you go.
I ran across this day before yesterday. -(it's really easy to play)- The scenes for the stills in the video are from the movie that inspired the song, The Grapes of Wrath. It touches me because it's so simple yet poignant and reflective. The scene is just an ordinary occasion that could happen most anywhere and Kristofferson made something of it. As an aside, the story of Me and Bobby Magee is pretty cool too- windshield wipers slapping time really happened-
