“…Son… if the mountain was smooth – you couldn’t climb it… “
Ain’t that the truth…
This is by far the one song that truly soothes my soul… allows me to feel good and remember why I’m here – for we are all connected, in spite of our humanness. And this man, Wintley Phipps – well, he sings it in a manner that breaks down all barriers and makes a believer out of a non-believer… And today – you don’t have to be Christain or anything… but be moved by the power of song… and a melody that is powerful and healing – all because of a few black notes…
So I just have to share this with you all. It came to me via email and is posted also on this blog…and I’m sure is out there in more than one place.

Amazing Grace – Just the black notes
Did you know of the pentatonic scale (5 notes) and the history of Amazing Grace? I knew of the scale and the lyricist but not of the piano black keys as the basic notes of Negro spirituals. Enjoy, this is so BEAUTIFUL!!
