I arranged three songs for guitar: my favorite gospel music. Amazing Grace is livelier and more detailed. There is also nuance and pluck in Michael Row the Boat Ashore which I heard on an old LP by the Brothers Four. Finally, from an Eva Cassidy CD I own: People Get Ready, which mirrors her arrangement and style.
