    I understand that feeling. When I found out my niece had cancer a couple years ago I couldn't face her. I was filled with sadness and anxiety at the thought of seeing her in person. And, like you,...

    I actually used to play this in a band many years ago. I think we cut out or shortened the weird bridge section. Very cool to do the dual guitar thing though.
