This is an arrangement of the song "Beautiful Girls" by Sean Kingston, decided to try this on my acoustic and not the classical. My percussion is a bit lacking, sometimes I get a good percussive sound, most times I don't, just depends on what strings I'm plucking and where I'm going next I think.

Thanks for taking a look!

Very good cover!

Joe, when you play the last songs that I watched they 'seem' easy but, however, they aren't. I think you are achieving that level in which you playing seems easy when really it is a hard song to play!

Many congrats! :D

Joe. love the cover. a friend of mine did an acappella version of this song just a few weeks ago. I gotta think it'd be perfect with your guitar work. hes got a great voice too, check it out.

Thanks Nuno! This one is built around just variation of G, A and C, the hard part for me was the percussion and the quick single note plucks while switching positions. Plus it helps that the tab is right in front of me, I've been working on this for a couple weeks and still haven't been able to memorize it.
Nice one. Well done... and like the new look.. :wink:
Thanks Dylan....new look??

Joe I really like that, a very chilled out way to play it.

Good job! You seem to have to have the finger picking under control 8) After playing guitar with a flat pick for 35 years I have been learning finger picking. I'm working on "Cocaine Blues" as taught by Stefan Grossman on you tube.

Ah, yeah, I'm trying out those new 30-Day contacts, the kind you can do everything in and not have to take them out except to clean them ever two weeks. You're pretty observant, I didn't even know what you were talking about and I'm in the video! :lol:
