Are You Ready for the Country?  Neil Young

This is a great song for beginning to learn to play slide!
Open E makes it easier to play the slide part.
There are a few faint slide fills in the first verse that I didn't
bother to write out.
Main Slide Riff:
(Repeated throughout the song with similar variations)
(listen for timing)
