Music Meme (Day 27) - A Song I Wish I Could Play

A song!?  The truth is I can't play any song because I can't play any instrument.  I can't sing worth a darn either, but that doesn't keep me from "feeling" music.  So, how do I choose a song I wish I could play when I can't choose an instrument I wish I could play?  I have to think about this...

...okay, I've decided - the song is While My Guitar Gently Weeps.  Wait for it...not because of George Harrison's version as much as Jeff Healey's.  I'm not disrespecting George (the songwriter), but I really admired Jeff's abilities.  He remains one of my favorite musicians even after his death (N.Y. Times Obituary) in 2008.

Here is Jeff playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps on his Fender Stratocaster (in his lap). *sniff*
