                                I just read Jeff's book, and to know how happy he is when he jams with his two sons makes this more special.

                                  Liam Finn on bass ! Neil's son. Great songwriter himself.

                                    sounds somewhat like Keith Green

                                      That red guitar is Jeff Tweedy's! He uses it on the Sky Blue Sky DVD.

                                        Jose Lemus I could be wrong (and probably am), but I think it’s a Barney Kessel Gibson that his wife gave him for Christmas.

                                        I'm not a country fan but Jeff's Country Rock Pop is the best. Not a better country rock songwriter .. ever. Johnny Cash has a great voice but his best song Ring of Fire wasn't written by him - written by his wife - and why is it that every song he does "I walk the something or other". Just look at Jeff's work with Wilco.. amazing. And he has compassion for the depressed as he's been through it..

                                        Even when I'm wide awake
                                        I keep turning back one page
                                        I can't find the plot
                                        And something else is taking shape
                                        I know what it's like
                                        To keep losing your place
                                        My shadow stays
                                        Even when I'm miles away
                                        Waiting outside
                                        I know what it's like

                                            What do you play when you have a solid mahogany signature Martin? The old Martin that probably inspired it.

                                              I'm obsessed with this song now. One of those performances that beats out the album version and is so much catchier.

                                                I LOVE this lineup!! Jeff Tweedy's 2 sons (the backup vocalist and the drummer) and......LIAM FINN!! How lucky that audience was to experience this cool moment :o)

                                                            @Nick They both have different songwriting style, I think Jeff Tweedy is up there with Bob Dylan. Dylan's way more influential because he is way more political but that doesn't mean Tweedy's songs are mediocre compared to that.

                                                            Agreed. He's almost up there with Bob Dylan!
