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!
