Hey Jack! Thank you! Using the first guitar I ever owned here - a Yamaha FG-330 that I bought used in, oh about 1980.
It's got nice tone, and significantly different than my Taylor. More earthy/woodsy (if that makes any sense!) to my ears.
and for the record while I'm playing this in G, from what I've heard Jerry acoustic and the GD played it in A - easier in my opinion to play that riff in A than G too. I just can't hit those high notes like I'd like to so I dropped down a step.
