Arrangement Note: The 'Amazing Grace' is problematic melody because a couple of notes require half covering the bottom finger hole, a difficult technique that does not work on all flutes. This arrangement replaces the troubling notes with an easier technique, the trill, which appears as a "tr" over a few notes. To avoid these few trills from seeming out of place, additional trills were added.
