Something I've always enjoyed is the few little moments where Frank played Acoustic guitar.<br><br>It would be good to hear some more recordings of Franks acoustic work if indeed any exsist.

The acoustic guitar solo on My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama is pretty great.

<br>ah hardcore zappa-fan & recordstore owner told me he once heard a bootleg of an entire acoustic-set bootleg.<br>regretfully, he couldn't tell me more.<br><br>does anyone know about this? <br>maybe there're some things of this sort in the Vault, it could be a nice thematic release...

It is definitely the '88 band. <br>Probably the souncheck on February 12th, 1988 at the Tower Theater, Philadelphia.

For me While You Were Out and Sleep Dirt are amongst the most beautful solos I ever heard...

Yeah, that's a bouzouki. I have one at home, my parents brought it from Greece. Can't really play it though, except when I tune it like a regular guitar. Pretty cool instrument.. :)
