    I can't believe someone requested this! I always feel so old-school when it come to the songs I like. Most people I know wouldn't care to learn this song. I love it! And have wanted to learn it for a while now. I'll be practicing this for the next coming weeks. Thanks for sharing this 🙂

    Hey Rob, this is Nipun from India; my 8 year old son and I are your greatest fans back here in India 🙂 You are such an amazing and pure soul, my little kid follows every song that you teach. He plays Hotel California and Let it be, of course learnt from your tutorials. And I used to just play rhythm, and i am trying all your licks and riffs so patiently like never before. God Bless You Rob and keep this awesome stuff coming. Kudos and clap clap clap… 🙂
    Also 😛 could you do " Jesus to a Child " by Mr.George Michael someday. Greetings from across seven seas. Regards

    Amazing Video 🙂 I have a question, could you do a Tutorial for "Swing Life Away" by Rise Against? I would love you forever 😀

    Funny, I heard that song yesterday on the radio! Reminded me I should listen to J. Mitchell more often.
    I assume she used to play it in open tuning but which one is it ?
    Thank you again Rob and what a talented friend you have there. 🙂
