Posted in ABF Recital by elwynrees on May 15, 2011

This is a  cover or Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor’s) track “Hurt” from 1994 and popularised by Johnny Cash’s cover in 2002 or thereabouts.    The transcription is by Vika Yermolyeva (aka vkgoeswild), but I diverge from this both intentionally and otherwise in several places!

Here’s my version of this piece (the same file as uploaded to ABF recital):
