Well I see I am going to be in trouble here with the purists.... I have this bad habit of learning a song as fast as possible so I don't have to go back and forth between my printouts and the guitar - and then not referring to the notes anymore. So I start to play a certain way and it hardens into habit...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICegQPQgwqg
I do start out same as in the lesson but like to throw in some extra fills - quick arpeggios (3 finger noodle) on the top 3 strings during G... also the thing with going up to A or B and sliding back down to high G. This is an unbelievably handy move BTW
I also mix up the A7 (prob with the A7sus4 harhar) by fretting high G with my pinkie (another incredibly handy move) to make it sound more like that missing extra guitar ( I hope) .
The transition to the verse gave me some trouble so I do a slide up from low G to A (instead of bending the low E string) and back and then try to hammer the open E into the G chord ( I think) and then strum G ... segue into verse.
Also I pick out the chords for the verse, that bad habit of laying down C one finger at a time again - and I am singing along in my head too
to help keep some kind of rhythm going thru here.
