Genre: Rock / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

I submitted this song to Mike Iverson's "Clawhammer Challenge" topic on his site, which asked for a tune from Crosby, Stills, Nash or Young's either solo work or groups they were in. Played in my Ersatz Clawhammer style.

Thanks goose, I appreciate it. I think a lot of Neil's stuff can fit into this style.

Yes Rod, that is yours truly singing. It's in Young's original key of D but notice I sang the refrains an octave lower than Neil, rather than going into what for me would have to be a screechy falsetto. Thanks for the comment. I'm listening to some of your original mp3s on your music page. Good stuff.
