The 'Lego House' performs a special rendition of his "favourite" tune from the folk legend.

Ed Sheeran performed a cover version of Bob Dylan's famous hit 'Don't Think Twice It's Alright' during a recent live session with Billboard.com.

The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' star told the site that the track is his "favourite" and he remembers the moment he first heard the song and said it was one of the first which he learned to play on guitar.

"For the first five years of my musical experience, [my dad] showed me all the music he was into," he revealed. "The Bob Dylan tune that I chose to cover was the first moment that I heard a singer/songwriter song.

"It one of the first songs I learned on the guitar and learned to sing and it's always been my favorite Dylan tune."

The star also goes on to talk about his musical relationship with his father and admitted that he once said he thought Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong was a better guitar player then Jimi Hendrix.

The star is currently preparing to head out on his debut US tour and will head back to the UK for his Autumn outing as well as a performance at the iTunes Festival 2012.
