    Default Jake - Piano Forte - cover

    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.

    Was that about an 8 fret spread?

    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,
    Terry

    A big thumbs up, but you might think about getting a haircut.
