    Default Great acoustic songs

    Some friends and I have started getting together on Friday nights to play acoustic stuff and drink beer, and we need songs.

    What are some of your favorite acoustic songs to play? I need ideas damn it.

    Are you wanting easy good ole "3 chord wonders"?
    Do you want more advanced tasty stuff.
    Do you want "sing along" beer drinkin songs.
    If you can be more specific it would help.

    Most of the Eagles and Neil Young is easy to play. Man there's ton of others.

    Here's what I call GOOD acoustic songs
    The clap...................Steve Howe
    Mood For a day..........Steve Howe
    Black Mountian Side....Page
    The Rain Song...........Page
    "Over the Hills" is fun...Page
    Dee.........................Rhoads
    just to name a few

    I'm really looking for a little of both. Two of us have been playing for over 15 years and can play whatever. But the other two are beginners, so 3 chord stuff is fine but I'm really just looking for anything.

    I really enjoy playing Dave Matthews stuff on my acoustic. He uses a lot of interesting voicings, combined with more traditional sounds, and is, in my opinion, an amazing songwriter. The downside is, its hard to singalong to his melodies!

    These are some I play at home. I suck at guitar, so these should be easy for someone to pick up quickly at a get together

    Love Song- Tesla
    I saw Red- Warrant
    Wish You Were Here- Pink Floyd
    Margaritaville
    Give to Live
    Thunder Road- Springsteen
    No Surrender- Springsteen
    Everlong- Foo Fighters
    Times Like These- Foo Fighters
    Slide- Goo Goo Dolls (typically in an alternate tuning, but I found a standard version on ultimate guitar that sounds pretty good)
    Blurry- Puddle of Mudd
    Revolution- the Beatles
    Don't drink the Jim Jones punch. They're called theToxic Twins for a reason...
