You've really made the grade...
The current edition of
"I have a bit of a soft spot for the tune as it's the first single I ever bought (my Mum thought he looked weird so that was good enough for me) and I'm sure you will get a lot out of studying it."
But there's no gain without pain (or something like that), as Dave explains:
"Although the tune uses mostly standard chord shapes throughout, it takes a lot of strength and stamina to play this on a 12-string (especially the F minor chord. Ouch!)"
So now you know how David has suffered just for you...a lot of strength and stamina? Have to admit he does look pretty butch when he plays that bit that goes: dum de dum de dum de doo doo!
Thanx to SusanS for the first pointer, and to a good few of you since.
