I re-played this a few times and it seems OK to me.
I know some members (and non-members) see a capo and
it gets their arses up in the air. Or some DON'T KNOW
what a CAPO is. All I can say to them is if you
don't use a capo sometimes, or don't learn barre chords,
you'll never get better..in my humble opinion. KK.

This was a five star tab but some arsehole decided he didn't like the capo
and apparently he can't do barre chords. That's not my fault.
To say the tab is inaccurate, and then not say why, is telling me he
knows nothing. Good musicans always put in their corrections. KK.

Love this song! Somehow only just discovered Sam Cooke and he's certainly filled a whole in my music collection.
