Solo gospel/blues piano version of “Amazing Grace.” Performed and arranged by Todd Allen Gates, author of “Dialogue with a Christian Proselytizer” – www.amazon.com My four YouTube channels: – youtube.com – my musician channel – youtube.com – where I discuss the ideas in “Dialogue with a Christian Proselytizer” – youtube.com – where I discuss the ideas in my book “Hunting, Gathering, & Videogames” (such as “Why do we have to work?” and “Why do we have to use money?” and “How should we define ‘success’?”) – youtube.com – where I play the background piano accompaniment for songs in Nick Gisburne’s book of lyrics “Blasphemy! Anthems for Atheists.”

Bet you can’t play it that well behind your back though, can you? 😉

(I second the Prof’s comment, by the way)

No, I couldn’t play this version that way … but I think I could come close to the version played recently by Edward Current’s Christian cat (see his July 3rd vid).

LOVE that people have expanded for the most part out of the norm and playing and singing Gospel to praise God with a different feel like Blues. Do you like R&B/Soul Gospel music?

Love it! My one other gospel video is “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” but more are on the way.

Well, I confess that praising what people refer to as “God” is not my motive, given my unbelief … but I never let my atheism interfere with my love for the Good Lord’s music!

@ToddGates is there anyway you’d be able to post/sell the sheet music for this arrangement?

Unfortunately there’s no sheet music–it’s just my own arrangement (and I don’t know how to use, and don’t own, the type of software that transcribes the notes while you play them). But I’m flattered by your request!

Work & family obligations unfortunately leave little time for YouTube these days, but I’m flattered by your request.

Just too dang short! I old (75) man learning to play jazz on upright bass. Just as I get into swinging with you – you STOP! Please, do it again but full length this time. I really need to play to keep my arthritic hands somewhat limber.
