Initially thought it was impossible for me to play, but I eventually reached to OK level.
It might be worth watching for those who have non-flexible fingers :)
Positive/Negative comments welcome.

Wow, nice work! I've been trying to learn this song too, and learned only the beginning. I'm having trouble with the middle part, do you have any tabs? (Maybe I should ask Dom). Or can you explain it?

Thanks!

That was great! You did a nice job. Wish my fingers were that flexible.

Nice job Terry, I learned that on my concert then tried it on my tenor, at he moment its a stretch too far, but I'll get there cos it's a lovley tune. Well played man.

Thanks guys for your kind words!

@ukeCANjam, @leo76dragon
I've got "got tabs?" T-shirt :) , but no actual tabs other than my hand written memo.
Dom or other experts would be the best person to ask for?

@sukie
My fingers are short, fat and not flexible. I'm just patient ;)

@UkuEroll
Ditto. Love and desire to play this lovely tune made me get there.

@Ronnie Aloha
Yes 8 fret spread at max *in my case (see info on YT page)*. 9 for Jake and other players.
I was hanging there just on the fret wire.

Cheers,

@GX9901
George, thanks! I learned a lot from your video. I will mention it in info section :)

@Swampy Steve
Thanks heaps. I will practice more to smooth it out. I want to play it naturally with gentle picking.
