Aw man... I love Don Ross. McKee plays well, but I still like the original better.

The percussiveness and high harmonics you get with steel string really make it sound like many instruments. I think the really low tuning also helps.

Here's a video of him playing it with Don Ross

I can't believe how well he pulled it off on a single guitar

And here's him playing it with standard tuning
