    I was just listening to that song last night, but you picked up some things I hadn't heard.

    If you listen to Nathan Watts very carefully, you will hear that he sometimes lags on the start of some notes (sloggin'). When you incorporate that 'feel' you'll have it totally nailed.

    Great Job!

    Played it great! Nice tone too!

    And you nailed that tricky middle section.

    Man, you nailed it. Nate Watts would be proud. Your tone is
    incredible. I've been struggling with that break forever. You
    nailed it, great job.

    GOOD JOB !! Most covers of "Sir Duke" sound a bit frantic - you are smooth and in the groove. BRAVO !!
