Cheers  :)

Favourite biscuit: Fox's Golden Crunch Cream (dipped in strong, sugary tea)

Really liked that. But I've not tried a Golden Crunch Cream :(

Well, well not bad for a first post here  ;)

You're on fire when it opens up after the dub-step part which was, to be fair, always going to be a tough nut to crack on acoustic guitar: really like that whole piece, but the last 2/3rds in particular.

Hopefully the Boss will swing by and take a look: I suspect it's something he'll like a lot too.

Thanks all, really appreciate it :) The whole "post-dubstep to pre-outro" section was by far the most suitable to arrange on acoustic (and the most fun to play).

Really liked that. But I've not tried a Golden Crunch Cream :(

You've never had a crunch cream?!?!? You going to any of the gigs next month? I'll bring some along with me  :P

If you're going to do an acoustic version of something... nothing like picking a challenge! But pulled off with aplomb! (and and perhaps a plumb... and definitely many a strum!) :D

And good choice of biscuit too! ;)

That's good that is.
Even had the kids running in and saying "is that towerblock" & I just thought they were heathens.
Did you and your brothers all learn to play the guitar at the same time?

Welcome and congrats - great video & version.  8)
Must have taken you ages to work all that out, arrange it, video it and edit it all together - very impressive. And it even has the famous 12 second in 'clunk'!  ;D
Once again it shows what good songs Mr G writes as they can be rearranged in so many different ways.
Come on, you\'re a lion!
