A tab I'm doing from work and memory. It's pretty much the same 4 chords throughout
the song, and easy as hell to play. The solo sounds nice and is easy to play with
some practice. About the same difficulty level as BOX OF VISIONS as far as the
guitar solo goes. I like to play this tune live when there's a quite audience, and
I have someone to harmonize for me.
I've made a few posts in the last few days, and only have one request. Can anyone
suggest any kick-ass tunes for me to figure out that are in the Tom Russell Style
or Tom himself? Thx!!
Have fun! - Ken
