Got My Mind Set on You (cover on acoustic guitar)

This song was in a movie that my wife and I watched recently. I sat down with the acoustic guitar to figure this one out and was surprised by how simple it was. This is an impromptu cover without a lot of rehearsal... but what the heck? This tune was originally recorded by James Ray in 1962 but made famous by George Harrison in 1987.

Intro - 0:00

That song was the soundtrack of my youth. You got the chords good.

Thanks t-belly and AD. You can't go wrong with a tune from a Beatle.

Crackin` tune, crackin` cover!

One of the first records I ever bought was George Harrisons.....I actually bought it because I fell in love with the B side! I was 10 at the time and the song still sounds great today... so if your looking for a great cover look no further than the B side of My sweet Lord. What is life!

Oh yes. The Traveling Wilburys were great. Maybe I need to cover one of their songs.

Nice gee-tar work, Kale.

Good song, good job.  Seems like that was a song George did with the Willbuys too.  I really liked them.
