Thanks for the kind words Andries! As for switching between necks mid song, I am finding playing each neck different than a normal guitar, The easiest/most comfortable for me is lower neck seated. The lower neck is more challenging standing because the other neck messes with my vision. The higher neck cramps my strumming arm regardless, so I need to practice it more. I like the guitar and hope in time playing it will become more second nature. Will see how it goes at the Library Slingers Jam tomorrow.

Thanks for watching BrianQ! I’m never disappointed when other Slingers choose Beatles tunes (of course I stacked the songbook with their tunes).

Glad to keep you smiling Kale and Alan! Clearly it’s timeless. I can see why many artists choose to cover it. The song is a kick to play and sing. If you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right.

The Slingers look they're enjoying that one, was only listening to a version done by an English Gal last week, by the name of Helen Shapiro, and of course lets not forget the original, done back in 1961 by the Marvelettes. :-)

What a fun song. Perfect for the Slingers.
