Well, after three years of playing (or two and a half or something like that), I'm trying to learn my first cover cover. I play all songs by other people, but I don't "Cover" them in that I don't play them anything like the original artists. That's not entirely true. I play the right lick on the transition from a capelo to accompaniment on *Seven Bridges Road*, and I did my best to learn the intro riffs and rhythms on Kenny Chesney's *Don't Blink*. But the first song I'm learning that is a complete cover - trying to mimic the original artist - is *Rocky Mountain High*, and I am learning that I have got a LOOOOOONG way to go to develop left hand finger strength and speed. I'm going to get an exerciser because the pinky just can't do the hammer-ons that are necessary for that song, and to use the ring finger is possible but it messes up the placement for the next chords. *Rocky Mountain High* is also my first drop D tuning song.
