What are some good acoustic power ballads (not every rose has its thorn, patience, signs or heaven or dont know what you got)? Because I'm gettin really into playin acoustic chords and stuff right now but I ran out of songs.

Mr. Big- To be With You (quite possibly my favorite power ballad of all time)
LA Guns- Ballad of Jayne
Guns N Roses- One in a Million
Def Leppard- Two Steps Behind
Tesla- What you give
Maybe try... Motorhead- I ain't no nice guy

here's something completely outta nowhere - try the instrumental prologue off Morbid Angel's "Blessed Are the Sick" album - a completely acoustic piece called "Desolate Ways"

Just my opinion but most metal songs sound great acoustically don't limit yourself to just acoustic songs.

That's not either Shred/prog or 80s rock
