Hey UG,
I've been playing the electric guitar for 2 years now, and I used to be really in to metal. I DID TAKE LESSONS, so I know the basic major / minor chords and scales etc.
More recently, I've discovered my love for John Butler's music, and I decided to start playing acoustic guitar. I have an acoustic guitar that is fairly decent ( it's my uncles and he's a very good *acoustic* guitarist), but I do not know where to start practising.

Has anyone got some basic acoustic guitar licks / lessons / songs that'll help me?

Thanks.

electric guitar and acoustic guitar are the same instrument for the most part. just look up songs you wanna play on here and select the ones that say chords. they usually have chord diagrams on them so you can learn the chords. theres not really anything different to learn.

Best way to learn acoustic is to practice acoustic songs. Now, it also depends on the style. If you simply want to play chords after chord after chord with simple pick strumming, then Cemetary Gates has the answer. Just play the actually major/minor/whatver chord to a song instead of the power chords, etc.

If you want something more complex and skill-building try something classical maybe. Check this one out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzelLHJUK3w Called Maria by Francisco Tarrega Once you can play that, you'll have gained a step of important techniques needed for fingerpicking. It's not too long and not too hard but builds good fundamentals =] Look it up here on U-G
