Hi Dan,

Thanks for this wonderful lesson. I really appreciate the calm, postive, supporting energy that you put out on all of your videos. You're a great teacher man!

Brief intro: I'm an old time banjo player and I've been listing to and playing Doc Watson's version of this song on banjo for over 20 years. I've always stuggled at becoming proficient at guitar (I guess it's that 6th string that really throws me off.) Anyway, your arrangement of this classic has been tremendously helpful to me.

Question: would it be possible to make a follow up video on a couple of "tricks" you do to fill in where you play the F chord? Or maybe some licks you might throw in on this song?

Thanks in advance!

hi nader!

thank you for your comments...they're appreciated. i'm glad you're digging this version.

yes, i'd be happy to make a video. i'll put one here later today and let's see if it makes sense and helps in some way.

are you playing the F chord with the thumb on the low E string?

thanks man!!
