    Gypsy Moth, by Hoyt Axton, although for the life of me I still can’t figure out exactly how to play it. I’m pretty sure he’s playing in an open tuning.

    Jambalaya, by Hank Williams.

    It's my favorite two-chord song to perform.

    So many great I - IV songs could make the list, but a snarky lyric and Hope Sandoval make everything even more wonderful.




    Never mind the little VII slipped in to freshen up the turnaround.
