Hi jklotz,
I am thoroughly enjoying your video.
And your tuning is quite exotic.
And your right hand fingering is pretty good, great harmonics.
Thanks for sharing.
Rene

A really nice arrangement and I also thoroughly enjoyed listening (and watching). Plus, your C-G-D-G-B-D tuning is interesting and helps shape some lush chords. I think I'll play with it. Thx

Thanks so much guys, I really appreciate it.

Glenn, yea, that one was tough. There is so little in that arrangement that repeats. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment. But it is such a great composition! I guess I didn't realize Freddie's genius until I got a little older.

Thanks Bob. I guess it's official now, I can't blame any of my deficiencies on the guitar.
