Wintley Phipps, Amazing Grace, and the Pentatonic Scale

I think it's interesting that I learned about the pentatonic scale on Pentecost. It's also called the "slave scale" because Negro spirituals are all based on it. You can also learn a little about the history of the famous hymn, Amazing Grace. If you've seen the film, Amazing Grace, you already know.
