Now that we've talked through all the notes and variation tools that are being used on this song, it's time to check out what it all sounds like together. I'll play it as it is on the record, but I really want you to just watch and listen this first time around and rather than the memorizing the way it is. Try to see past the chords and the licks and notice the timing and the variation within it.

I hope you've had fun with this classic song and that you've picked up some of what I've been trying to show you. Personally I wish someone would have told me this long ago don't pay so much attention to the notes. Pay attention to the phrasing, the timing and the variation. We're always in such a rush to learn the next lick, and it seems like a great mystery that all these classic guitar players could have a lifelong career with only a handful of licks. These are the invisible tools that enables you to do that, and once you realize this it'll open up a world of creativity with all the licks and tricks you already know! Have fun with it!
