    Why do many people teach this song as E-minor to A-major ? —- A minor always sounds better to me .

  4. Wow, I can really tell the difference when you played this song through the Fishman amp! Fishman so much clearer and tight, sounded like a recording studio version.

  5. Michael Haygood

    Can you please do a lesson on the solo

  6. This freakishly sounds like breathe by Pink Floyd. The video after he does a dark side video, hmmm
