Anyway, I played it here on my old stand-by Ramsey prototype Fairbanks Electric. I'm tuned capoed to double D (aDADE), but playing in G. Sep 2006.

Five stars for you.  Excellent.  I wonder how after all these years you dislodge this one from your brain?  Anyway, well done.  Try to shake more of these gems out of your noggin and post them for our enjoyment.
