Anybody know any good acoustic/ mellow guitar based music out there for me to try out? I know it's extremely broad , but I'm open to anything since I've realized that my listening consists of LOUD music and sometimes I just want to CHILL.

I listen to Miley Cyrus when I want to chill. Her meaningful lyrics about friendship and life are very heartening and make me feel the inherent goodness in mankind.

Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

Coldplay. The older stuff like Scientist and Yellow, but some of their newer stuff is pretty acoustic and mellow. Actually, just listen to everything Coldplay.

EDIT: Didn't see the guitar based part. Well some of their songs are guitar based.

+1 to Coldplay and Neil Young.
Try the band, Doves.
Bloc Party may work also.

Come to think of it, my penis should've listened to more death metal.

So my question is. Can Pre-Cum fluid pass through my underwear, my jeans, onto and through her jeans, through her underwear, and impregnate her?

cute is what we aim for...its mellow compared to what I usually listen to and they're pretty good.

Get the album Bert Jansch by Bert Jansch, everyone. He's one of the best guitarists I've ever heard. Jansch is to folk guitar what Dylan is to folk songwriting.

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

Serious answer: I sometimes listen to some oldschool Genesis (Selling England By the Pound in particular) for some chill-out prog. Plus, Steve Hackett is awesome.

Come to think of prog, there are a few great albums by a band called Camel which are really chill, and then there's the folk-prog masterpiece First Utterance by Comus.
Going down the same folky path, the album Stormcock by Roy Harper (the same from that LZIII song) is excellent.

I used to love Coldplay. Ever since the whole Viva La Vida thing, I feel like I can't be sure any of their music they've ever made was original or not.

I love Bon Iver's voice and guitar playing, but his lyrics are pretty terrible. Still, if you ignore that it's a damn gratifying listening experience, which is all you need really.

More:
Pete Doherty - Grace/Wastelands
Nirvana - Unplugged
Nick Cave - The Boatman's Call
Kate Bush - any album
Andrew Bird - any album

I wouldn't say they're horrible; in fact, I think some such as "Blood Bank" are quite good. But I think that they are really vague and confusing. They make my mind picture hazy snow fields and junk.

Blind Melon has some pretty good mellow songs. Or the whole Skin and Bones Album by the Foo Fighters.

The Album Leaf, Sigur Ros, God is An Astronaut, Blackfield, Mogwai, Todesbonden, and more synth driven Ozric Tentacles but nonetheless mellow.
