I loved this mellifluous tune from the beginning and I play it very often now.The B part is like a soft caramel surprise embedded into the A parts.
Although "just" 8 minutes long, this video provides everything to learn the tune even without using the notation/tabs. It's easy on the fretting hand, so no need to practize complicated bar chords for weeks. There are many variations worked into both video and notation, so it's really worthwile spending ample time on this piece. The biggest challenge for me were the syncopations, and I had to tap and count a lot. It was a very good exercise. (To put this into context: I am an intermediate player of 3 years practize.)
