Default ELO - Mr. Blue Sky - Fingerstyle Guitar Cover




Here's an attempt at a fingerstyle version of "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO.

That was absolutely amazing. What a charming and effective fingerstyle arrangement of a challenging tune.

Why there is not a chorus of positive comments is something I donít understand.

When I saw the title of your post, I wondered, "How the heck are you going to pull that one off?" Fabulous rendition of a very tough piece!

That was a great, peppy little starter for Monday morning! Thanks!
