    Ed and his son Will are good peeps - excellent store, good inventory and prices. I'll be seeing them this week at the awesome jam they hold. Pros show, crowds gather to listen out on the street.

    Re: Come hither to go yonder

    Nope. Listen to the recording, the accompaniment (gtr) punches minor chords (Am, Dm) on the B part. It's what gives the tune its flavor. No capo is how it's done.
