All you will need to play this song is an acoustic guitar. Today I am playing my Taylor 714CE- acoustic-steel with medium bronze strings.

I am using a Dunlop large thumb pick and palm muting to accentuate the bass notes. I am recording direct from my Taylor through a Boss GS-10 desktop unit for a little reverb, EQ and compression. This unit offers some very practical controls and effects in a compact and portable unit! On a side note, the original recording is in the key of F, played with a capo on the first fret, in the E position. Most performances show Doc playing in the key of E, so I will too!
