Acoustic Rock Rocks My World


I enjoy playing acoustic versions of hard rockin' rock songs the most. Acoustic Zep, electric Zep played acoustic, stuff like that. "She Didn't Know", "New Orleans is Sinkin'", and "Three Pistols" by Tragically Hip are all cool on acoustic. I also love crankin' blues.
