I don't play guitar that much (I'm more a bass player), but the only songs I know for acoustic guitar are “Malagueña Salerosa” (Kill Bill vol 2 end credits) and “Hey there, Cthulhu” (same tune than “Hey There, Delilah”, but waaaaay better lyrics).

Led Zepplin man. It's all you ever need :)

…not Stairway to Heaven though. -_-
Bron Yr Stomp - This is a great one!
Over The Hills and Far Away - Has a beautiful acoustic intro.
Going To California - This is another cool one.
Battle forever more - This one might be a little complicated.

Music bellow…

Voice of the Soul by Death is a perfect (mostly) acoustic song. I'm listening to it as I'm typing this.

While you're learning songs, I suggest using Songsterr. It's what I always use, and it's the best website of its kind I've seen.

Oh, Pretty Woman is very easy, and a fun tune. Other than that, I'd have to know your taste in music to give out more suggestions.

Learning some John Fahey is usually a good way to impress people.

It'll take a while though.

I've been playing for a while. Easy stuff I can do but same with hard stuff.

Into alternative music but I've been looking for some more classical guitar songs to play.

Just looking for stuff with a unique sound.

Um like Rylynn by Andy McKee.

or…Roulette by System of a Down.

or Mosquito Song by Queens of the Stone Age.

or…Pinball Wizard.


VotS is cool on acoustic.
Fahey looks extremely hard…
I know Oh Pretty Woman. Not a lot of guitar it seems though. Hadn't heard of Songsterr. Usually use Ultimate Guitar.
Zepplin…sigh…I'm not a big fan at all. That intro is cool. Never knew the name of that song till now. GtC is okay…BFM is same. Harder.

Thanks guys. :)

it's a 1337 master forum. That means no one has to give a shit.


still looking around. May learn some Mumford & Sons and a little more of the Sublime stuff I love. Thanks for the help guys.

I quite enjoy playing songs by the Kooks Arctic monkeys and Okkervil River acoustically it works well. So y'know you can do that. Then again I also like to play shitty RnB songs that get stuck in my head on the guitar, so who am I? ….I forgot what I was talking about.
if I was a teapot I think I'd be orange.

And when you get TOO confident about your skills, listen to this guy:

;)

Seriously though, I love his music. Hard to believe it's just one guy playing. Playing a guitar and nothing else.

I was about to mention Pete Townshend to add to your arsenal of acoustic repertoire. I feel like the difficult part with his stuff is just nailing down that phrasing that he's known for. Many people I've seen have tried his stuff, but fail in that aspect (usually).

But you've had plenty of suggestions - looks like you have plenty of work to do! ;)
