Anyone got ideas on these types of songs?

Looking through my music library, I am lacking these kinds of songs and I'm looking to perform something in this genre.

I wouldn't call that easy, to be fair

Are you looking to improve on anything in particular? e.g Chords, fingerpicking etc. etc.

This, and also
"Wonderwall" by Oasis
I'm not a Bible-thumper anymore. Realized I had a brain in '09.

I like guitars, running, and math.

Would that oasis song be nice without drums?

I forgot to add in, I don't have a drummer. But any song will do, fingerpicking, or strumming, aslong as it's easy.

wonderwall sounds great with just an acoustic guitar. Actually quite a number of oasis songs ain't too hard and sounds good with just an acoustic.

I dunno how easy they are but these seem easy as hell to me:
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Neil Young - Old Man and Heart Of Gold
Beatles - Blackbird (one of the first songs i learned even though it seems a little technical)
Kansas - Dust in the Wind
Check out Incubus' CD When Incubus Attacks (all acoustic cd)
Search Eagles stuff too like Tequila Sunrise

Fender Mex Strat, Hamer Studio, Ibanez Musician, Ovation Celeb, Takamine Classical

Lola - The Kinks

This is a song which sounds good pretty much any way you play it. Straight chords without any frills and ornamentation? Sounds Great. Full on fingerpicking with bends and solos? Just as awesome.

Plus, it is well known enough and a fun enough song that it is a crowd pleaser, and if you sing and play it with enthusiasm and have fun with it then the whole crowd will get into it and sing along.

I love Oasis so here are some of their songs you can do acoustically and they sounds great:

Stand By Me
Wonderwall
Half The World Away
She Is Love
Songbird
I'm Outa Time
Don't Go Away
Married With Children
Live Forever
Talk Tonight
Going Nowhere
Slide Away
Morning Glory
Cast No Shadow
Whatever
Champagne Supernova

All I can think of off the top of my head that are great acoustic...go on Youtube and search any of these with either "acoustic" at the end or "noel" at the end and you will get an acoustic version of some of the songs that are originally electric. I like to play all of these at gigs.

Oh and don't forget about

Music When The Lights Go Out - The Libertines and
Lost Art Of Murder - Babyshambles

Althought Lost Art is a difficult song to get down at first, weird chords.

Good luck!

"Do You Remember" by Jack Johnson?
Absolutely top notch tune and filled to the brim with meaning. Pretty easy to get a hang of too.

Or "Angel", I haven't met anyone who doesn't like that song. Easy as hell to play too.
#22
Babe I'm Gonna Leave You by Led Zep is pretty easy but it sounds complicated to anyone listening who doesnt play guitar. One of my favorites.
#23
Learn the chords version of Hotel California, then once you have that play the individual notes.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was pretty easy... Redemption song is pretty easy...
#25
stairway to heaven is pretty easy if u can finger pick. even if u just pick it normally wit a pick its fun and easy. also simple man by lynyrd skynyrd is like 3 chords almost the whole song
:p

We have a what songs thread for future reference, but Let her be by hootie and the blowfish is one of my personal favorites

Great, great choice.


Sea And The Rhythm by Iron & Wine would be a good one TS. Pretty easy, and a very nice song.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.
