I just uploaded a new video

Last month, I had an honor of meeting my guitar hero George Benson himself.
I told him that I love his rendition of "Danny Boy" and transcribed every note of it, and whenever I harmonize a melody I use it as a reference. And he was like "Oh man! I'm so honored my friend!!" Lol.

He is truly a genuine person and definitely have that, what I call, you-don't-have-to-be-famous-to-be-my-friend attitude..

So here's my tribute to Mr. George Benson with all my respect! Thank you! I learn from u a lot!
It's not perfect. There are some mistakes but c'mon man,, this is Goerge Benson's rendition,,, how could "I" play it perfectly ;))

Hope you enjoy!!
