For the Turnstiles doesnt even have any guitar, its just a banjo and a lap steel.

The idea that media is there to educate us, or to inform us, is ridiculous because that's about tenth or eleventh on their list...

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You

Anything from Bob Dylan's first four albums (Bob Dylan, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changing, and Another Side of Bob Dylan).

Obviously, he had other acoustic songs but those four albums are entirely acoustic, if I'm not horribly mistaken.

Erm.

Woody Guthrie stuff?
Peace, peace, and that's my piece.

Wish You Were Here, Two Suns In The Sunset, Is There Anybody Out There?, Fat Old Sun, If - Pink Floyd

Blackbird - The Beatles

Mood For A Day, Clap - Yes

Hear My Train A Comin' - Jimi Hendrix
