Johnny Cash's "Hurt" on Seagull Merlin Dulcimer Guitar in D

"Hurt" is the song that singlehandedly revived Johnny Cash's career, and it's haunting feel is powerful. In this arrangement, I've tried to conserve the feel of the song by switching out using my fingers and a pick to create different sounds throughout the song. 

And below I'll walk through the ways that I approached playing the song, from chord shapes and versions, in addition to finger picking and stylistic approach.
