TAB AVAILABLE READ ON...every Aussie fingerpicker needs to have a Chisel number in their belt, I didn't until I put in 2 weeks of effort on this one. It is a quieter Cold Chisel piece, by Don Walker, and suits fingerstyle well. I arranged it Naudo style which, as those who have been following my work, know that I'm right into :)

Points of note:
* I didn't bother with the intro or outtro, well not for now. I just wanted the basic tune down. Maybe later, after all, the intro is a signature riff to this song.

* I didn't actually play it as well as I would have liked, but I had put pressure on myself to get it out. This was the best take out of 4 attempts, if you ever see me play it live it will sound a lot better I'm sure :)

* Mossy has been playing this in his shows recently, he gave me a bit of inspiration into doing this piece. Thanks Mossy! Thanks also Don, great song, meaning is a bit dark though. And yeah, thanks Barnsey, if you hadn't have "crooned" this one it might never have found its way into Aussie folklore ;)

* Yeah, I got a bit more fancy in the video production this time...I hung a sheet in the background ;) Hopefully it will be a bit less distracting than my messy shed, although it didn'tstop the light from reflecting off my forehead!

* I've just about zoned into my new guitar. I have realised that I need strings with more tension though. The nylon is working out great, but after many years of playing steel I'm a bit rough on them. Perhaps I might ease back after a while...perhaps high tension nylon strings will do the job.

* If you aren't a thirty-something Aussie you probably have never heard this song. Check it out here: http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=O002Ylj...
