Amazing Grace Ukulele Chords And Tab

Amazing Grace is one of the most memorable and classic songs ever. The ukulele chords are easy and fun – perfect for beginners.

Try and make each chord as sweet as possible as your play it on your ukulele. To do this you can try extending your strums so that they roll across the strings longer instead of plopping out in one go.

Also, be sure to fret each note as cleanly as possible. This will help the notes ring true and sound richer.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
     C               F       C
I once was lost, but now I'm found
   (Am)        G7    C
Was blind, but now I see

      C                    F        C
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
    C                 F      C
How precious did that grace appear
    (Am)    G7       C
The hour I first believed

      C               F          C
Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come
       C                    F         C
'Twas grace hath brought us safe thus far
     (Am)      G7      C
And grace will lead us home

     C                F       C
The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
    C      F          C        
He will my shield and portion be
   (Am)    G7      C
As long as life endures

     C                   F           C
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail
And mortal life shall cease
  C                  F      C
I shall possess, within the veil
  (Am)    G7      C
A life of joy and peace

    C                   F          C
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
    C                 F      C
But God who called me here below
     (Am)  G7   C
Will be forever mine 
     C                    F        C
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
      C               F          C
We've no less days to sing God's praise
     (Am)    G7      C
Than when we first begun

If you want to go beyond the ukulele chords for Amazing Grace, you can learn to pick the melody with the tab below.

You’ll notice that the tab shows the notes predominantly on the A string. This means you’ll have to make some finger switches. Don’t just try to play everything with one finger!

This is very similar to the super basic TABs I present in my ebook, Step By Step:

An absolute beginner’s guide to picking melody on the ukulele.

For example, when you move up to the ukulele’s 10th fret, shift your whole hand and play 10 with your pinky and then use your index finger to fret the 7th so that you can toggle back and forth between fingers. When you return to the 3rd fret you can shift back.

As you play the picking part on your ukulele, be sure to pay close attention to how you fret the note. Press down in the center of the fret just hard enough to get a clean sound.
