It`s pretty good just two issues:

1:It was not on Catch A Fire(by The Wailers NOT Bob Marley & The Wailers)
it was cut for being too soft for the album.

2:You did`nt figure this you copied it from reading it you should try and crack a song yourself even if you have to play just a couple of bars over and over to try and get it right.

That`s how i see it,But still as i first typed it is good 4*.
