Open D Arrangement of "Baby Please Don't Go"

Lesson description: There's a great black-and-white clip of Lightnin' Hopkins playing this tune back in the '60s on YouTube. With his cardigan sweater and black sunglasses, he's the epitome of I-don't-give-a-f*#k coolness. 

This arrangement is based on that performance. His version is on a 6 string acoustic in standard tuning. I thought it'd be an interesting variation to try on my Guild 12 string in open D tuning. The results create a jangle-blues fusion!
