Michael Jerling is an amazing song writer and an excellent guitar player.
Also, this one from about 2005 ... "Heart of Gold" concert filmed by Jonathon Demme at Ryman Auditorium. Here, Neil solos on the bare stage with nobody in the house. Haunting arrangement of this song, especially in a building with that many ghosts lingering ... "The Old Laughing Lady". Awesome!
The late Steve Goodman, wins hands down for me. He wrote "City Of New Orleans" , Arlo Guthrie, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and others made it popular. Probably the one I liked the best was about talking backward. Steve was also one of the more talented musicians I ever seen play, he did more with one guitar than I ever could with three. He did a show on Austin City Limits that gets a lot of play time here. I really miss Steve.
I've been looking everywhere for a tab of Talk Backward... Would you happen to know where to find it, or would you have it? I tried to look at the youtube videos, but I'm not good enough to pick up on what he is doing... I'd have to slow it down quite a bit.
