Don't care that it's over-played, it'll always be "Melissa" for me.

Wow! Very impressive...I had no idea that Gregg was so savvy on acoustic guitar...that's a great version of CAGB!




He's a great acoustic guitar picker. Fantastic rhythm player.

Good call as well. You know, when I first read this thread, I could only think of 3 or 4 acoustic ABB tunes....I forgot how many there were, and they're all good.

Can't BELIEVE I forgot about Little Martha.

I really liked the acoustic Southbound they did back in the 90's.

Heads up for you guitar players..."Come and Go Blues"...is easily played like the live version on the DVD when you drop both the Low E and the A strings to "G".....

Liz Reed from second set hands down. Woodys bass solo was so funky if you didnt move your body to it you were dead.

these are all great choices .

but as far as a live acoustic version of a song,

the version of Elizabeth Reed from the Radio and Record Convention in Los Angeles, Ca. on 6/11/92 is absolutely amazing ( the IRSA cd )

No...It's probably some sort of G tuning, I just know it works.

I don't think they recorded it, but I've seen the video
with Gregg, Dickey, Warren taking turns singing.
