Danny Boy Fact: I have never did a cover..ever (3 or 4 or 6 or 12 string) but I dig some Led Zep! so onward I will go and I will try to play my first cover! May be awhile tho. But I will sing and play this historically rad song. Thanks brother.

Nice!  I've been having a bit of a Led Zeppelin / CBG-fest recently and made a few vids too.
