  1. Maybe also worth mentioning that 2nd 'bass note' is an E rather than a C in the original riff. Great version for acoustic guitar by the way.

  5. thank's sir!

  6. WHAAAAAAT?!?!? Am I the only one who thinks this is fixed???? Look between 10th and 11th second. They repeated same video twice I spouse… Is this for real? You cant play it correct in once? daaaamnn

  7. Once upon a time whence drunkard my friend showed me how to play painted black. I had never played a guitar before I learnt that 22 years ago within about 2 hours I still remember it now and my friend said I should continue but instead I continued drinking. This is the first time in 22 years I have tried again to play guitar I have learnt this in 3 hours just have slight timing issues which I can iron out. Really impressed myself I can pick it up so quickly. My sister plays by ear on piano and guitar and is brilliant at both but I unfortunately don't have that ability. You should see me dance my I look as cumbersome as yogi bear on iceskate. Big thanks for adding this video I have to fill the void that alcohol left in me. Note to all scrumpy isn't latin for nutritious little apples.
