    Got another side project going (I'm on drums.) We will be 3 pieces (acoustic electric,bass, drums, 3 part harmony.) Our target will be coffee house/small college bars gigs. We will be doing some Reggae, some Dead, some bluegrass/newgrass and are open to suggestions on our setlist. Shoot me some ideas that would fit our instrumentation.

    What's that Exteme tune-"Whole hearted?" May try that one.
  5. if you don't mind putting an acoustic guitar in C-G-D-G-C-D tuning, Sonic Youth's "Disconnection Notice" is a great acoustic song.

    Do some Tom Waits and some Willie Nelson.

    Bluegrass suggestions - Del McCoury's "Cheek to Cheek With the Blues", Ricky Skaggs' "If I Lose", Man of Constant Sorrow is always a popular one...
