When Posting to Rukind
Introduce Yourself First! We think of each other as being part of a community, and want to know who you are. Use this as an opportunity to honestly represent yourself and why you are here. Be Respectful of others when posting: There is a lot of leeway of what is acceptable here, but, your point should be able to be made without humiliating, hateful words, witch-hunts, ganging up, bullying, name calling, threats, or violence. (The types of things that you wouldn't find acceptable at a Dead Show.) Be Kind: a good rule of thumb when interacting on this site is to ask yourself: are you kind?
So did you try to post a video or something? I only see a blank area above your smiley face. I would enjoy hearing/seeing someone's early attempt at the song as I have been meaning to sit down with it one day myself. Where did you get your material for learning it?
Just go for it using an open A - you will hear how the melody just falls into place, and the chords just shift back and forth from A D and E with that sweet F#m in there - I don't have my guitar nearby, but it's real straightforward / also a great piano song if you can play chords on the piano, gives another good perspective on how it's all linked together / wish the video link above worked, would love to see it played on piano by someone else -
if you don't mind I can try to help, i do not always do this right. I always have trouble finding the thread on How to use the youtubecode thingy, >>>>>forum/viewtopic.php?f=360&t=9700 FWIW. It is the stuff after the = paste into the code. I always forget
So if ya don't mind here is the video, sounds great, good job and thanks for sharing.
