This one is a great example of the improvement of tuning and frets in the execution. I am glad I have the old youtubes of me paying this one. On a good day with the low fretless, it cannot compare to the improved intonation of chords on the fretted. The higher tuning indeed makes it "pop". I'm not a huge fan of the song or arrangement, but it is part of the book.

Sounds like a piano arrangement.

Seems FBC was stretching his wings as an arranger there
