This lesson teaches John’s guitar part from the original studio version. It’s taught on a 12-string. That’s what John played it on, and although I tried it on a 6-string, it sounds so different that I made the decision to go with the authentic 12-string. However, if you only have a 6-string, you can play the song as taught here on that instrument.
