I don't know the original too well, but I love this. Didn't expect a second voice, but when I heard it - it gives the whole song kind of a sad, soft feeling which his just wonderful (hope you do more like that - it's really nice!).

And I always love your picking in the songs you do. I think it's perfect - relaxed and easy, it sounds so natural and pretty. The kind of playing that makes acoustics so nice.

Nice arrangement, Dan. Because of the thick CS&N harmonies in the original, I think a lot of soloists stay away from this song, but as your rendition so adequately demonstrates, it can be done very nicely with just one or two voices, too!
