Hi Frank, just had a quick look at your video. Thanks for sharing! I thought I would throw something into the mix for you. Edward plays the open D string as the first note of "Beautiful Girls" instead of a doubled E note. D E F F# It also helps give him the strong first accent before swinging the chromatic run.

Thanks D!!
