    and you won't mind. Rambling around YT and came across this incredible gem. Not sure of who the artist is but , HATS OFF to a mighty fine picker.

    I don't know who that is either, but I have the exact same arrangement recorded on my site. If only I could remember where I got it from we'd be able to credit the original arrangement....it's a lovely piece to play.

    very nice...

    for some reason, that video got me thinking of the HSAS version from the mid 80s. Must be leftover from the Billy Squier vid somebody posted a few weeks ago with Kenny Aaronson.

    Nice! And thanks for the link jazzrat.

    You can always hit the "Quote" button, and copy what's between the Youtube brackets. Then open any video on Youtube and replace everything after the = sign in the url field with what you copied. Reverse engineering!

    Fyi, Martin is a seriously good Tele player too and has some country style instructionals.

    Nice arrangement and well played but hardly 'mind blowing'.

    My thoughts, as well - it's nice and certainly well played (too much reverb, though!), but it didn't blow my mind - seems like a normal arrangement to me.

    Very nice. Well played and arranged. I'm gonna work it up. Somtimes it's just best to let the song speak for itself. Arlen Roth had a great Tele version also.
