  1. Great lesson! Actually seeing Donovan in concert tonight, seen him a few times and usually plays this song. And yes, he usually mixes it up on where he plays the same chords, from barre to open.

  2. Thanks. Perfectly directed me of where I needed to go with guitar in this song.

  3. there is a right and wrong because when you record you need to play higher up so you leave the bass some room in the mix! Also, the technique he uses is slightly different. the upbeat is played as an upstroke as far as my ears tell me. 🙂 thanks for all the vids Justin!

  4. Thanks justin..
    Really love this song..
    Gona learn it.. And play for the family picnic by the riverside.

  5. Justin, great song and thank you for breaking it down. I first saw this song being performed by DF at the BBQ Pit Boys. Would you give some insight or theory about the lead playing that is going on?

  6. More DF please!

  7. How about, It's A Beautiful Day by Donovon F?
