Very good transcription.  Thank you.  One question though, what "BF live DVD" are you talking about?  Is it uhh...the live in central park dvd?  I was just wondering if there is another DVD floating around out there or what?  I have the central park one.  Anyways, good job!

Yah, the "Ben Folds Live in NYC Central Park" DVD was a concert that was broadcast on satellite TV or something and someone recorded it and then made it into a DVD.  It's very well done.  It was floating around a few different torrent sites a while ago.  I'm not sure if it's around anymore though.  I got mine from the now defunct easytree.org.  I'd be happy to post it on a torrent site or just hook you all up with it another way.  Let me know.  It is rather large, I mean it is a DVD.  I believe it's about 2.5 GB (maybe even 4 GB).  Sorry about the off-subject comment.

if someone could seed it somewhere i can get to it that would be immensely cool.  \m/

So if I were learning this song is this pretty much the definitive version to use, instead of the crazy one in the songbook?

I learned this song by ear and by trying to watch what Ben does, all I can recommend is DON'T use the one from the RTS book....good lord is it awful.

If you have been playing for long enough or you are talented enough, the book isn't that bad. I use the transcriptions as guidelines (chords etc) and use my ear to fine tune it and put in the fills and fiddley bits.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've used a little of the book and the transcription found here and was able to learn the fun beginning part pretty quickly. So much fun to play!
