Here I am trying to copy Chet's arrangement of "Both Sides Now". I've been practicing it for a very long time now. At first, it took me a long time to learn to do those double notes along with the thumb BUT...the hardest part for me 'still' is at the very end when Chet goest up to the 12th fret and does those double notes (I messed up there on the video - sorry, I'll work on it continually).

Edit here: The more I listened to this, the more I realize that the sound wasn't anywhere near where it should have been. The amp effect I used, I shouldn't have used. I'm soon going to try this again and just mic the pure guitar with no effects. (I'll also practice it a little more).

By the way, I checked out Chet doing this tune back in 1974 on the Tonight Show. He plays it differently, slower, with a lot of slides - very pretty. I'll work on copying the way he did it then after I get what I'm trying to do now first. Ok, enough with my excuses, here's the vid:
