1. Amazing Grace

Im this version of Amazing Grace you'll notice that for the first few verses I'm playing an arpeggio style of playing across individual notes in the chord.

After the picking break, I'm combining the arpeggio with a bit of strumming. And finally near the end I'm playing just root up down up rhythm.

So you can combine these, pick one or come up with your own arrangement. The chords used here are Bm, A7sus, A7, D, D7 an

2. Are You Washed In The Blood

In this song entitled Are You Washed In The Blood, you have an up-tempo style tune that will surely get the foot tappin. 

I start of with s simple melody riff and launch into the rhythm with is a root down up down up down up pattern.

In the middle section of the song you can insert a picking break which can be improvised or play a melody pattern as I'm doing here.

This one starts in G and uses a C, D and A7 for chords. One of my favourite Alan Jackson gospel songs arrangement.

3. How Great Thou Art

As with Amazing Grace above, Alan Jackson decided to play How Great Thou Art in the same style using an arpeggio format. What I didn't like about his version is the 1/2 step or one fret move he did in the middle of the song. I'm not a fan of 1/2 step chord changes.

The songs starts in G and moves thru the G7, C, Edim with an Am and a D7 for the first half of the song. Then a C#, D#, G#, G#7, Fdim and an A#m comes into play as you finish the song. But as I mentioned, I'd just stay in the key of G through the entire song.

4. I Want To Stroll Over Heaven

I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You is one of those nice and easy Alan Jackson christian songs played using a simple root down up down up strumming pattern and as you'll see in this clip, I'm using a Drop D tuning.

Anytime you're playing a song in the key of D and you'll be picking out a sequence, consider using this tuning to get a deep sound on the D chord.

I've added a bit of simple melody picking here and using the D, A, A7, D7 and G chords.

5. I'll Fly Away

In this old classic toe tapper called I'll Fly Away, Alan played this in the key of G. This has a very common strumming pattern using the root down up down up down up and repeat in a bit of a fast shuffle.

As with many of these Alan Jackson gospel songs, you can implement your own picking break into the song as I've done here using the chords G, C, D and Em.

6. It's All About Him

When this song called It's All About Him first starts, it's a bit tough to pick up the vibe. But once it gets going then you'll catch it.

There is a steady down stroke shuffle rhythm that's happening here which adds to a funky kind of time signature which I don't know what it's called because I don't read music.

This one I'm playing with a capo on the 2nd fret and using the chords G, C, D and Am. And once more I've added in a melody line of picking break which Jackson did as well in his version.

7. Just As I Am

In this song called Just As I Am, as you'll see I'm using a capo up on the 4th fret. Capo is optional and is used often to get into the original key, or a key where you can sing. This is one of those great Alan Jackson gospel songs to learn.

You have two options on playing the rhythm.

The first is to just arpeggio down over the strings followed but some rhythm. So the count would be 1-2-3 up down up and repeat. Or you could skip the arpeggio and just strum in a root up down up down up root up down up down up pattern and there is a melody picking break in this one.

Chord here are G, G7, C, D and a Dsus.

8. Precious Memories

This song Precious Memories I'm playing with a capo in the 3rd fret and using a Drop D tuning. 

A nice easy root down up root up down up strumming pattern will carry through this one.

I have a bit of a picking break in the middle of this one but nothing too complicated.

The Precious Memories chords are D, G, A7, A/Db, Bm and an E or E7.

9. The Old Rugged Cross

An old classic here for sure called The Old Rugged Cross and as you'll see, I'm playing this one in the key of G, but remember any song can be played in any key. 

A simple root down up down up strumming will work in this one and a little improvised picking to break up the song I've provided here.

The chords you'll need here are G, G7, C, Am, D and D7.

10. There's Power In The Blood

In this Alan Jackson gospel songs version of There's Power In The Blood, we have a fast paced bluegrass vibe going on.

It's another root down up down up down up strumming patten that is used in many songs across many genres.

The picking in this one is a bit more advance but as in all of the lesson, I break down what you see me playing in all of my demos.

This one is a simple G, C and D chord song.

11. What A Friend We Have In Jesus

What A Friend We Have In Jesus is of course an old gospel hymn and in his style, this Alan Jackson gospel songs version is a keeper.

I'm using a Drop D tuning with a bit of arpeggio combined with a bit of strumming.

I'm using a bit of picking to get this one off the ground and then some melody picking in the middle of the song.

Chord wise you'll need a D, D7, G, Ddim, Dsus and an A or an A7.
