  • Raise The Glasses

    I make a joke about doing a costume change, something like announcing no expense has been spared for the crowds entertainment then reach into my pocket and pull out a pair of Elvis shades or John Lennon specs followed by a song by the respective artist. Today I was in Lubbock and bought a pair of Buddy Holly's glasses, now I need to learn an appropriate song, so anyone do any that work well just solo acoustic that go well? Also any other ideas for the glasses theme, with a roaring holiday crowd it goes down really well, I was thinking Elton John?

      Nice guitar arrangement.  Kind of like James Taylor, or Tuck Andress lite. The vocals add a nice edge but still sit well with the guitar style.

       

      Anyway, the only Buddy Holly tune I do is That'll Be The Day.  People can listen or dance to it, and folks like to sing along with the   "ooh, ooh" part near the end.  I sing it pretty bluesy but nobody seems to notice - as long as they can go  "ooh, ooh". These days, I might only play it once a year (or less) but if the crowd wants Buddy, it seems to fit the bill.

    "Peggy Sue" is a great "unplugged" Buddy Holly song, but almost any will work on acoustic.
