Creed - Torn
Eagles, The - Desperado
Heart - Alone
In Flames - Acoustic Medley
In Flames - Moonshield
Jewel - Foolish Games
Metallica - The Call of Ktulu
Styx - Boat on the River
Styx - Suite Madame Blue

Torn was the first song I ever learned, and it sounds surprisingly good on an acoustic... good times.

Nilsen, Kurt - She's So High

It's a really good song, and sounds good on an acoustic guitar. There's only one tab for it on this site, and is pretty decent.

I'll second Green Day's "Good Riddance".

Good for practicing alternate picking and chord changes.

Sounds cool strummed, and even cooler once you get to
picking it smoothly.
I used to be a necropheliac who was into sadomasochistic bestiality...

...'til I realized I was just beating a
dead horse.

Great acoustic song that can be played with one guitar strumming, ( there is a second that picks along with the chords ) no need for a capo and there are really simple chords and sounds great.
for those about to rock we salute you

^ Most every song played on an electric can be played on an acoustic and sound just as good.

So for the 1st time ever I decided to actually look on this thread and I noticed that there are no Stuart Davis songs listed so here are a few of my favorite acoustic songs, by my favorite artist.

Eight Day in the Lotus
Feamale Friend
Flower of a Zero
Only Changing Drugs
Universe Communion

as a side note, you won't be able to find tabs for any of these songs on UG but you can find tab and MP3's for the songs as www.dreamusher.com
Still doing business but not taking any online orders.

What songs can I play that have a capo on the third. I like them because its easy to match vocals. So far, I play Free Falling - Tom Petty, Still Havent Found What I'm Looking For - U2, and dont Go Away - Oasis with capo on third. Any others?
I have the mind of a criminal genius... Its in the freezer next to mother.

Hate to be a nitpicker, but I noticed you have some of the Queen songs filed under "Q" filed under "O" also. It's not a big deal, but you might want to delete the "O" ones. Kickass list though.
