Thank you, Rene. It sounds great as usual.

I think it's from a little before my time, but I remember this as one of those songs that everyone learning guitar "had" to learn. There was a certain appeal to it. Perhaps it's one of the easier songs to sing and play at the same time?

Truly, a guitar [;ayer must-learn, and a beautiful song!!!

Maybe, not an easy song to sing and play guitar imho.

Wishing you the best for 2023!!!
