Excellent playing and the guitar sounds lovely. Having seen this guitar close up I know it's a stunner

A tough one indeed. The best arrangement of
Take Five on guitar ever, IMHO.
This tune is on Sandy's great CD, Newer Every Day.

I just finished co-authoring three books for Mel Bay with Sandy,
on CGAD tuning, Open G tuning and DADGAD gospel.

Very enjoyable! A venerable piece, to be sure, and I do not believe I have heard anything close to a decent rendition on solo acoustic guitar... Nicely done.

Tough one to keep the pulse steady on... loved the harmony and partial chords.

A very classy arrangement... I think Dave would be proud!

The way you play that, and the sound on that guitar is just sublime.

I can almost smell the wood.
