" Fast Car" Tracy Chapman

1.)Combining hammer-ons and pull-offs with simple chord voicing(s) 2.)Sounds Great! as either a simple joe-strummer or a foray into fingerpicking 3.)It is more than just a guilty pleasure campfire ditty...it has something in it for everyone...Heck, it might be the best song written!
