    Default Acoustic Sam Song Suggestions

    In the recent interview http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/upo...ass-casino.php that Sam gave, he mentioned doing an album of acoustic, one-man remakes/ country experiments.

    What songs from Sammy's past would lend well to this project?

    Here are four that come to mind-
    Connection (Montrose)
    You Make Me Crazy (Solo)
    Feels Like Love (Solo)
    Plain Jane (Solo)

    Most hard rock converted to acoustic sounds like shit. Songs built around power chords and reverb just don't sound right when done acoustically, at least to me.

    He should do covers of songs that have meaning to him, and sprinkle in a few original compositions.

    Do a Johnny Cash style album, and don't over sing them. With Sam's voice, he could easily overpower an acoustic album. Just my $0.02 if I was in the room with him.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    sam did an acoustic show in 97 with jesse harms on keys and vic on guitar, he did a keyboard version of give to live and a few other tunes. the boot is out there it's from Boston of 97 and it's really, really cool.

    Lots of sam songs could translate to an acoustic

    honestly, I love Sammy accousticcly. I love what he did on his solo outtings during the VH years, like "Eagles fly" etc.
    ....to make a whole albums worth of solo stuff old and a cuppla new would be a cool thing, but I do miss the red rocker that did "Standing Hampton", etc. the beach bum roles getting old, and now this...
    I know hes mellowing, but he has to do another chickenfoot and hopefully, another serious record like 'Marching to mars'

    I’m holding out slim hope for another CF record but I think a “Marching to Mars” type album has long set sail. I think that “Sam and Friends” is his highest charting album since Red Voodoo only reinforces that he doesn’t need to not to a heavy, classic sounding solo album.

    (As a whole, I do like the friends album. Certainly much better than CUF or Livin It Up.)

    you're never gonna see sammy go in and do another MTM or Ten13. The return he gets nowadays on his solo records isn't worth it at all for him to spend a few months writing tunes, recording and putting that much effort into a record that mgiht be great (I think MTM, RV and Ten13 are all great records) to sell maybe 100,000 copies and maybe get 2 weeks of airplay on the radio in major cities for the 1st single.

    Sam puts out stuff nowadays for his "hardcore" fans who are happy to get and "And Friends" type of disk with a few really great tracks. He can play with who he wants and he can record what he wants. People who have been with him for years will love it.

    he has nothing to prove as a solo artist anymore.

    if you want Sam really putting his all into something you gotta look at CF.
