A challenge for me do to anything Dave Mathews, but gave this a shot because I also like playing Willie Nelson tunes. May bring in a few more instruments for a BH version if anyones interested.

@joeyman1: Joey, no problem. Im headed up to Washington to see my son and he may add some very light drums , but wont add much more, maybe some single note hamond in the chorus? . The guitar is as challenging as the vocals ! Dave Mathews has a unique style of playing and sometimes a little ahead of the beat and sometimes behind, so I struggled to synch with him. I figured once I had some light drums and some vocals I might redo the guitar without the backing track.

@Rick : Sounds great , im loving the song , the delay is working in my favour as im slowly getting the timing right with the vocals , as you say not easy . Have a safe trip .

@Rick : Having listened to it a few times now i think you could be right, perhaps some light drums and or even soft bass would add some depth .Your call entirely , thanks for having me and introducing me to the song , cheerss
