Acoustic version of Cracklin Rosie

Let’s just face it. Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” gets requested all the time. It is a great song and you will see a video in this series of “Sweet Caroline”. But, if you have the right age group, having extra Neil Diamond song available will really make for a great gig followed with some accolades.

I have found that Neil Diamond songs are pretty timeless and recognizable across many age groups. My personal goal is to always have 4 or 5 of Diamond’s songs ready to go.

The Reason this song is in my “Song Bank”

  • Easy to play
  • Sing along
  • Something other than Sweet Caroline

How to play Cracklin Rosie
