Hey guys I'm trying to find some blues songs that can be played with only an acoustic guitar. Something with a lot of licks in it and is tabbed somewhere on the net. easy - intermediate.

similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jnweq0d0Y8Q

Thanks!

You're looking for Piedmont Blues and The Delta Blues. Just google it.

It's a little advanced but try some Skip James. Or some slide stuff.

Most of AC/DC is based on the blues, in particular the early Bon era,... I play all their blues on an acoustic in the garden in the good weather and it sounds great,.... plus it's a great way of introducing people to a group that they would normally dismiss as "heavy metal"

All my neighbours appreciate AC/DC now hehehe

Songs to go for (I recommend these tabs... http://www.geocities.com/maniac1075/AC-DC)

The Jack
Night Prowler
Little Lover
Ride On

They're all very easy to start with

Robert Johnson is incredible to listen to. Its haunting and magical, and unbelievable to think that its just him playing on his own.

What albums are those songs on, mate? I have The Jack on their live album (the one with the huge blowup woman over the stage) but I don't think I know any of the others.
