    Same here. Depends who I'm playing with and in big part who is listening.

    I try not to, but I often find myself playing some old Leo Kottke tunes...Mona Ray or The Fisherman or something.

    Definitely this one. This one or "Sweet Virginia." Or "Country Honk." I guess I don't have just one.

    Same here! :) For me it's always either Doc Watson, John Fahey or Leo Kottke. It's either Deep River Blues or Last Steam Engine Train, both amazing fingerpicking songs.

    +1..that one gets played a lot by me to...that and "My Creole Belle", probably 90% of the times I pick up an acoustic and don't have a pick.

    For what I use a Flattop for it would be "Wildwood Flower".
    On an Archtop, might be "Here's That Rainy Day".
    On a Classical ? "Romance" the etude by Cano.
    A Flamenco it would be an Alagria .

    Allman Bros. Mellissa seems to pop up every time. Great acoustic tune.
