    I didnt read the full title and thought it was freight train by nitro, still nice

    While I'm Australian and should be behind my boy Tommy Emmanuel, I can't go past Elizabeth Cotten's version, it just gets to me. I did my own very rough cover of it on my channel –

    Paul I love what you do man, great teacher, great beard. Sorry for the shameless link.

  3. Shadowgolem

    Great lesson! Please do a proper review of that guitar once you are done your trip. Very curious how it is to live with on the road.

  4. Anomie Train

    Don't get yourself eaten by some wild animal…and show us some of the local cuisine!

  5. Mark Holter

    Paul, coming from you I expected the Julian Lage version! But this works nicely.

  6. Hennericho Olivier

    Hey Paul, if you are planing on coming to South Africa, please come to a town called George. Would love to meet you and go for a beer🍺

    You have no idea how much you help me in learning. Everytime you upload I get motivated to play even more.

    Original Elizabeth’s version is best by far. Still thanks for another great lesson! Waiting on “Never going back again “

    Hey paul .
    This is a very very very humble request. Please make a detailed lesson on “ the heart of life “ by John Mayor. How to play the fingers style intro

    Wait a minute, I live in Namibia 😱. Welcome to our beautiful country Paul.🙋

    I just wanna share how beautiful it is that tou can spend 15 million dollars on a videoclip, but a little ditty that a housemaid created more than a hundred years ago when she was 12 will still be considered a classic long after your song is only being played in kitsch nostalgia parties.

    How do those strings hold up with all the switching between tension and no tension of the attached and detached neck of that guitar? They lose their tone quickly?

    Well executed Paul! Love your picking style, and teaching in regards to rag time..
