All you will need to play this song is an acoustic guitar. Today I am playing a Martin steel string acoustic tuned to open G as follows, from low to high: D, G, D, G, B & D. I am capoing at the 2nd fret which effectively puts the song in the key of A. However, for ease of teaching and learning, I will be referring to the song in the key of G. I am using medium gauge strings and using my thumb for the bass and my index & middle fingers for the treble. I’m using a Boss GS-10 modeler for light reverb, EQ and compression. This gives me tone controls and ease of direct recording in a small desktop unit.
