One of the first songs I learned on acoustic guitar. Sure learn your scales and improv...
My favorite songs from Jethro Tull's Stand Up: A New Day Yesterday, Nothing Is Easy and Fat Man. Back when I liked classical music Bach was not one of my favorites.
On my old HD-28. All I need is bass accompaniment. You play stand-up? (sorry for pun)...
Back in the 1970's I could play all the songs from David Crosby's LP "If I Could Only Remember My Name. All the songs used alternate tunings. I remember "Music Is Love" used DADDAD tuning and I got tired of retuning my guitar all the time so I leave it in standard EADGBE tuning. I sold the book decades ago.
Nowadays I play a couple of times a week. I never played stand-up acoustic bass.
Teresa, Crosby not only used different tunings, but some odd chordal changes. I think a lot of guys in those days like to change up tunings and chords --- more for a unique tone. All that Dropped-D stuff that the Stones used was supposedly influenced by Ry Cooder.
Keep on playing that acoustic. It can be a very relaxing & rewarding. And sure does give one an appreciation of good artists.
