Easy to follow and good pace. Great job. Have you heard Johnny Cash’s version of this song? It’s good too but now I’m liking this Brad Paisley version the best. Sounds great, thanks for sharing.

A very good lesson for me. Lots of finger exercising and agility needed before I catch up with this one but it’s pushing me a lot. Thanks Devin!

Brad Paisley is from another planet. He and Keith Urban and Vince Gill all make my head spin.
