      A timeless classic. Marvelously and accurately reproduced here. it took me six solid months to get this right. A glance at the chord boxes at the top of the page combined with the time signatures of 7/4 4/4 6/4 and 3/4 all occurring on the first two pages, might make this piece appear daunting from a reading point of view. Don't panic and have patience, it is manageable. If your not a professional sight reading musician then you will need the CD to help understand what your reading. Once you've gotten the intro under your fingers, things get a little bit easier. I've tried this with fingers, with pick and fingers and with pick alone. the best result was with pick alone. A 2mm jim dunlop big stubby which gives a solid round tone. controlling such a firm pick on those very slightly arpeggiated or raked strums will require practice especially if you are used to a far lighter pick. unusually and perhaps surprisingly every bass note and every strum are downstrokes. there is only one upstroke in the whole piece, and that's the high D in the first bar.( and where that bit is repeated) take your time. it's mostly chords and strumming with a few nice embellishments added. Listen to the CD a lot. best value on sheet music at musicroom.com I'VE CHECKED.
