Superb, Eric, in every respect. I really, really enjoyed that. And above all your mouth watering (melon) playing style.

Eric I always enjoy your videos, and I’m pretty sure I remember a previous version, but in any case this one is a real homerun!
I have to ask though, I thought you posted a little while back that you were down to just two guitars (both sig models) so did GAS get you too?
Also did you go all crazy and actually change the key on this one?

Yeah, it’s kind of funny. Up until just a couple months ago, for years, I only had one guitar in the house – well two, but they’re exactly the same. Then kind of out of the blue I got the VS and the flamenco guitar. Crazy. It is fun, but I do feel a slight threat to my focus.

And yes, I have recorded and made videos several times of this tune, it’s definitely a war horse for me. I know there is a live one in front of almost 600 people that is pretty close to this arrangement, where I also did it in D I think On the new record it’s an F though...

Sorry, I don't. I do have a few youtube videos that I call "Deep Dive" that have tablature and a long breakdown of how I play a few tunes. And I also do Skype lessons

Thanks for the video. I'm really liking the 00-Skye model and will keep my eye out for one! And I've been enjoying your albums, which I discovered via the SCGC web site.

Eric...that was fantastic. Not only does your playing inspire me to play, but I smile continually while listening to you play. Thank you for sharing.
