  14. My God. I've been wanting to play this song since i first picked up a guitar 10 years ago. The intro always discouraged me from trying to learn it.

    And here a I am all these years later, two PBR tall boys in my stomach on a Wednesday night. When what could only be an illusion in this desert of not being able to play this song. But you are no mirage, sir. And I'm actually making real progress in being able to play this song. Thank you, I don't know how you did it, but you did.

  15. Appreciate the video man this is a lot of fun to play , great tutorial
