with the PROPER picking/strumming. I hate it when people only pick, it sounds boring and repetetive if you do that. Try the 2 finger picking/strumming like McCartney and it'll sound way better.

I think it's a tie between "Day Old Hate" and "Save your scissors" by City and Colour.

+1 for Classical Gas. And... OCEAN!! (by John Butler). Love playing that song. Asturias is nice too if I could ever learn to play it up to speed.

Just for the sake of conversation, the range of the melody is only a 6th, (two notes short of an octave). So, most people should be able to sing the song at least over a 4 semitone key range. I think this was written during Dylan's 3 packs a day phase.

Yes'n how many smokes will a man have to smoke, before he can't find him his key......

The answer my friend is a' blowin' in the wind, (Yadda, yadda, yadda.).

On a more serious note, (pun intended), my favorite Dylan songs from that era are, "Chimes of Freedom" and, "My Back Pages".

For someone as old as I am... It's always surprising to me to hear guys mention songs I've never heard of on one hand...
And songs that were popular when I was just starting out like Classical Gas.

Personally, I'm a "roots" kind of player, and I like great jam tunes like "White Frieghtliner" and "Randall Collins".
