A number of years ago I was asked by a student to help her learn the Eric Clapton version of this Bob Marley gem. She did learn it and we performed it together for a student concert. Afterward,she asked if I was going to play it live in my upcoming concert. I told her I didn't think so, but I began tinkering with it as a solo piece. I finally previewed it as a supplemental piece for a televised performance and it went over very well. The rest, as they say, is history.....
