Points to Remember:
• With our modern technology, it's easy to find different versions of the song to listen to. I think it's best to listen to a few versions of whatever song you're trying to learn first. You should really "know" the song already in your ear. Then it will be much easier to learn to play it on guitar. You can find several versions on youtube, iTunes, "P2P" or bittorrent, etc.
• Or, just listen to my version several times. ;-)
• In the performance video I do a trick to make it a little easier to play: I tuned the guitar down a whole step (D, G, C, F, A, D), which makes the strings slacker. Then I put a capo on the 2nd fret, which puts it back in regular tuning (E, A, D, G, B, E), and has the effect of making all the frets closer together. It's also easier to play near the "nut." Capos are our friends!
• Good luck!
