Love the tune although depressing.

Sorry I've not been posting for a while, been crazy crazy busy.....BUT....I've managed to acheive a couple things on the guitar that I had tons of problems with (C chord with a barre for one like x54232)....and put together a Phil Collins arrangement....not mine...don't even know who did it....but after re-arranging alot of this version I think it came out okay!

What a great arrangement. You make this sort of playing look so easy now Joe - nice one!

Thanks Al!

This song was quite easy to play, I admit. Took me about 2 days of maybe an hour of practice to get it. The hardest part was the bridge and the bass notes because there had to be some sort of independence there.

When i made that comment joe i didnt mean i thought it was easy. I cant play that way at all, i just meant you make it look effortless. To me it looks so hard and like there is so much to memorise as well.

Nicely done, again, Joe. Your playing and tone is always pleasing to listen to. :D
