DF: I love the melody and chord changes on So Far Behind, and thought it a bit of a challenge to play it 'Bluegrass' style. Gary Brooker's M&M "So far, so far behind" in the middle was lifted from a recording of the 23 March 2003 concert at Köln, Germany: my alternate 'Ali Baba' lyric lines come from this show as well: hope that's OK!

Please enjoy this 'for fun' rendition.
