Many years ago I saw Springsteen do a solo acoustic concert in Berkeley. I was shocked to learn that he could really, really play the guitar. I had seen him many times before in his typical giant three hour concerts and was a huge fan but never thought of him as a great musician like my other favorite guitarists like Leo Kottke, Eric Johnson, and later Kaki King. Bruce showed creativity and mastery of his instrument like no other that night and it remains my favorite Bruce concert ever. "Adam Raised a Cain" rearranged by him and played on twelve string was a complete jaw-dropper.
