  2. Alan bravo!! your for Kazakhstan!

  3. Je vous vous salue .Vos cours sont vraiment clairs. Salut.

  4. Props for the effort!

    I am actually trying to find a good adaptation of the instrumental solo that takes place in the Beach boys rendition and add that keyboard to the guitar version. For me, the song just doesn't feel complete without that. (Maybe even the flute at the end adapted to guitar picking – that would be easier, but i feel that it would break the rythm of the song due to switching from strumming to picking technique)
    I haven't seen that in any tab. (Suppose i should have searched beach boys vers. and not the mamas and the papas version)

  5. Brilliant Alan learning this now. so helpful. xxxx

  6. Wow. Looking up some of their songs, i found you. got it down. Thanks. I'll be learning this from ya. I like the easy-ish. Works for me. By the way, I've just picked my guitar back up after 23 years. No reason to explain why it took me so long. Just to say, i'm glad I did. Thanks for posting this. One of my faves and never played it before. It's great to play again learning some new songs. Got rather bored with the older ones that I use to play. Still playing them, but there are one or two that I just don't want to play again. Thanxxxx
