    You are too kind, Relman. Actually, I am kind of a laughing stock here sometimes, but it is all in good humor, so I soldier on. Sigh! :D

    Let me give your question some thought. I assume by accoustic, you mean guitars and basses, etc. that aren't "electric" or don't sound electric. But you also want the song to be upbeat, not sad. That requires some thought. Oddly enough I lean toward the more rueful ballads myself.

    Dude! Put some good drivin' bluegrass on there! That's about as "acoustic" as it gets, and it'll get your blood moving. Be careful in your car, though. Lotta that stuff will cause speeding tickets.

    If you want MP3s, you can find a few on my website at http://www.eastwindbluegrass.com. There are more available on there than are shown...I can send you more links if you like those.

    How's THAT for shameless self-promotion? :D
  5. ooh! bob dylan's "most likely you go your way and i'll go mine."

    it puts a spring in my step.
