PLEASE NOTE: This acoustic guitar lesson is for Handsome Alvin's interpretation of the song. It could be very close to the original song, or it could be very different. Their covers are designed to be played by an acoustic duo in live performances, therefore they cannot play the songs as a full band can. Please appreciate the songs for their arrangements and enjoy.
