Thanks RTZ! I'll be rakin' soon. The strings might slow me down a bit!

LOL Jim! Good thing the CBG policed are preoccupied at the local coffee shop.

Thanks Richard. I won't be responsible for any injuries incurred while attempting this.

Pretty song even when your teaching Jim! I inherited short stubby fingers ( no comment UJ) ha!, and my pinky finger curves in. This song puts me in traction. The GMaj7 chord puts me on disability. I have a lot more range with 3 & 4 string guitars, and with a slide on my pinky, I can cover pretty good range. Excellent video Jim!
