    That last note (5th fret, 4th string) on the end of the chorus isn’t supposed to be there.

    David, I’ve just recently stumbled upon this site, and have found it very interesting. I was kind of turned off at first due to the lack of video, but I have to say there is a wealth of information you give here. It’s incredible really. You explain things very well. This song is a little advanced for me, but I have the song and the site bookmarked. I hope you are continuing to write lesson. You are a gifted teacher. Thank you so much for your contributions to my playing and understanding music.

    BTW….51 years old and playing for a year. Wish I would have had started years ago, but really am loving learning.
