        Same here. I started as a percussionist years ago and have tried to learn other instruments. “Heart of Gold” was a favorite, so I learned the solos to play along with guitar-playing friends. It’s fun to start to learn the tab and expand what I can play. Thanks, JP!!!

    Well, I kinda suck right now, and am surely driving my neighbours nuts, but this song is a huge motivation for me to learn to play the harmonica. My brother was a huge fan of Neil Young’s and used to play this song with guitar and harmonica all the time. We played the song at his funeral 13 years ago. Learning to play it would be a way to sort of connect with him after all these years.

    I’ll keep on chucking along.
