This arrangement is a transcription of my 2011 recording of "Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross." Watch for the slip notes (on-beat grace notes) throughout the song, beginning with the first full measure. In the cases where I draw out the slip notes, they are notated as sixteenth or eighth notes. Quicker grace notes are notated as such, but they should be played more laid-back than in classical playing. Listen to the mp3 recording for insight if you are unfamiliar with this technique. If you are used to playing classical grace notes, which precede the beat, it may take some practice to make these sound right. Just take it easy and don’t rush anything!

My performance of this arrangement is available on youtube at http://youtu.be/Iw_cNEnxtbE, or visit my youtube channel, http://www.youtube.com/dayzzzed, for this and other songs.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
