This early American hymn is presented in your basic, down-home pickin'. I have added enough syncopation to stretch the beginner (so pay close attention to the tie markings, especially tablature readers) and suggest further explorations by more advanced pickers. You might try playing it straight the first time and adding syncopation and riffs to later verses. Take advantage of the nice pinkie glissando when going from the 7th to 3rd frets (measures 15,19, 31) and give the last note of the piece some strong vibrato.

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.
