Define "new". Because sweet child o' mine, sweet home alabama and 90% of that list in general would count to me as turgid, overplayed pub-rock bilge.

It'd be nice to see some songs that haven't been covered half to death.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.


Sums up whisky perfectly

Good looking out...

Let's see... "Pride & Joy" really sounds great on acoustic and it just seems to get'em going at the beginning of a set and it sends a really fun vibe to the crowd in a festival atomsphere. Also some "Life By The Drop" to end a set works just as well.

Both those songs are really easy straight forward SRV songs that sound great on acoustic and are well worth learning. Let's not forget Stevie folks!

Classic Rock Boy, if you like Zeppelin you can't go wrong with ANY Zeppelin acoustic material... "Braun Yr Aur" (might take a bit to learn though), "Going to California" (especially if you have some string help), "Gallows Pole," "Over The Hills And Far Away," the list goes on and on. "Ten Years Gone" can even sound good on acoustic.

You probably don't have a lot of time though... so good luck... just have some fun with the set list and so will the audience.
