    Hi Cara

    Thank you for writing and I’m sorry that you feel the way you do. Unfortunately this song is one we have not yet negotiated the copyright fees for, so we’re still not able to post the music notation and tablature that would certainly help enhance the lesson.

    Email me directly at dhodgeguitar@aol.com with any questions about it and I’ll see what I can do to help.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    This is incredible! I struggled for days with trying to figure out the counting and you did a great job explaining it. Thanks
