The lesson covers Dylan’s guitar part from the original album version. The songsheet covers all the lyrics with their corresponding chords and is the best tool for learning the song (together with the lesson video).
The original recording is a sequence of verses played with minor changes each time, and a chorus. The lesson teaches the intro, a standard verse sequence and a standard chorus sequence. The changes from one verse and one chorus to another aren’t significant enough to merit a detailed breakdown of each one.
