Hi Mike,
I hope all is well with you.
I chose this song as an example of a difficulty that I have.
This sing tabs an E note as the last note of the first full measure.
The way that I hear the melody, the E note is on the first note of the second measure.
So, I get confused and struggle to play it.
I hear (the way that I hear the melody) the E note with a significant emphasis.
Putting an emphasis on the end of a measure – may be an interesting variation. But, it confuses me. Do you have a recommendation? Maybe I could learn a version that is more “straight” to the melody first before I try something syncopated?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts

Tony Wilder
