Sounded great to me. You explained it all well too, even with those tongue twisters in there. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Cause, I think that is the greatest song ever written.  Usually when I build a guitar, the first song I play in it is Amazing Grace.  Kind of a blessing.  I did that (somewhat -but not as well) just this morning.

Thanks folks. I'm hoping someone will want to play this.
