Going to the acoustic duo thing after a lifetime of bands. My first gig is next week. Can anyone suggest some can't miss tunes? Even a whole set?

Since I don't know your audience I can't give you any cant miss songs, but my wife's taste in music is a complete 180 from mine, and she really likes when I play "Please Be With Me" by Cowboy. Great if the other member of your duo can play the Duane Allman slide part.


A few others that she doesn't mind me playing are

Hurt- Johnny Cash
The Flame- Cheap Trick
Wish You Were Here- Pink Floyd

Then again, maybe she just likes these because she doesn't have to hear my amp.

Hoyt Axton did a cover of LLL? To the Youtubes!

Ugh--horrible version!

Isley Brothers had a better take:
