Mike, regarding Lennon's "Acoustic" review, I take exception to you placing John below Willie Nelson as a guitar player. It's true that Lennon was mostly a strummer, but there are exceptions like "Julia," which was a stunning fingerplayed arrangement. Lennon was capable of much more than strumming rhythms. Willie Nelson, on the other hand, is a truly horrendous, undisciplined guitar player, using a pick on a classical nylon-stringed Martin.

I once heard of a guy who was so undisciplined he played with his TEETH.



Ahhh, you're talking about a different animal here. That's genius! I hope you're not trying to compare Willie Nelson to Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix undisciplined? So what!

Well I also have spent many years looking for the Well Tuned Piano album. Make sure you get two if you are lucky!
