When Johnny Paycheck was on tour during his "Take This Job And Shove It" period, Johnny and his band stopped by the Restaurant in which I tended bar (1976), Cold Spring Tavern in Santa Barbara.
I had a 12 string Takamine guitar that I let people play and I would play from time to time to overcome stage fright, because there was no shortage of talent up there at Cold Spring Tavern which was between Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley deep in Los Padres National Forest. I was playing one of my favorites  when Johnny Paycheck's guitarist (don't know who it was) showed me the right way to play it. I showed him another by the same composer (Jorma Kaukonen). A wild and wooly wild pig hunter invited Johnny Paycheck's band and me up to his ranch for a Bar-B-Que, so I had an adventure along with those guys, but that's a whole 'nother story!
