Thanks for the comments (:

Dusty: It's not the thumb work which makes this tune so challenging.  The right hand is doing some pretty tricky cross-picking, and the ring finger on the left gets a surprising work out.

Dusty.............I have listened to Mark for years and it has now become clear that he is a human prototype of some sort.  That aside, whatever he posts is just amazing and glorious.............mind boggling skill!!!

Sounds great!  I'd love to learn this one but I don't think my thumb is up to the challenge.
