I`m not good enough to be playin` much acoustic guitar onstage. Man, you gotta get so right; I mean, the tones, the feel, the sound. Plus, acoustic blues guitar is just that much harder on the fingers.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

Small town band hits it big, but they must battle a nefarious plot in the music industry.
