Acoustic version of The Letter (video)
Here is my acoustic version of The Letter. This is a classic. Even if the audience has not heard this song, it has an enjoyable sound to it. For people that know the song, it is a head turner. I have often thought that the song is so well written that I wish I had wrote it.
What is also a plus is that the song does not have really high notes. So this is a song that you can save your voice with. The title the letter also sticks out when you announce it. In some cases I play a song, like the letter, and then ask the audience if they know who did this song. It’s a fun way to keep the crowd engaged.
