    Default Purple Rain - Dwight Yoakum - Bluegrass Version

    I may be slow on things, but heard this for the first time this morning. Pretty darn nice cover.

    I've heard that before, it is indeed a great cover. It pays tribute to the original, while highlighting Dwight's vocal style.

    It's also fairly easy to play. Now... if I only looked and could sing like Dwight, I could quit my day job.
    A quarter tone flat and a half a beat behind.

    Yes, good. A bit cluttered at times, but good as these things go. Who are the pickers, anyone know?

    Sarah Jarosz plays a great version as well.
