    On acoustic, Don't Think Twice It's All Right, or The Needle And The Damage Done.
    On electric, I don't really have one. Right now I'm learning a bunch of Buddy Holly tunes so it's the intros, fills, and stuff from that.

    One of the first songs I learned and played as a duo, a few years (how about 50+) back.

    Roy Orbison's, "You Got It", is my current song of choice to "strum" today. Great chords.

    Nice. That is a song I played for years when I picked up my acoustic.

    Durn, Trane was lazy that night. If only he took his inspiration from the Bee Gees.

    Eyes of the World, barre chords up the neck. I play it with some slides and putting fingers down and taking them off the move the chords around. I'd probably be able to give Bobby a run for his money on that part.

    Uncle Johns Band, Another Brick in the Wall pt. II and Battle of Evermore are also good ones.

    It totally depends on what I'm working on. Right now it's "Gentle On My Mind."

    Wicked Game by Chris Isaak, very easy but still sounds lush especially with some added effects
