the stroke - acoustic style

here's a blast from the past, done acoustic style...   billy squier bluesing up his own song.  Caught me by surprise (in a good way), figured I'd share. The video is just different guitars, a few gibby's in there - right at :43 something that looks like a nice old southern jumbo with some f hole action...  but the f holes have p'ups which surprised me.  Hope you enjoy 😉

Lol - was out for a walk and thought to myself 'geeze - no ones going to reply to this' understanding there's more of a country, blugrass, americana vibe here than rock... so I figured I'd take this opportunity to talk a little more about it.  what I liked about this is (1) it's a song that I remember cruising around to with a bunch of friends in my folks station wagon... plain old good times  (2) it's an acoustic recreation of a traditionally electric song, done well IMO.   Tie them together and you get something that's pretty cool.  Wife didn't appreciate  it though.
