Practice logs:

This song is not in my practice log, which means I probably learned it on off hours by ear. I had already toured playing sets of Travis picking songs so the song was pretty much in my wheelhouse and I'm sure I picked it up very fast. Jon michael swift (discusscontribs) 21:07, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
