A girl asked me to play at her 16th birthday party. But I'm not sure what to play there as my electric guitar is messed up.

So I have my acoustic.

I figure some John Mayer would be good soft stuff. But I need some attention getters also. Not sure how many people. My guess is between 75-100 people.

So the question in summary is:

WHAT SONGS ARE GOOD TO PLAY ON ACOUSTIC GUITAR AT A 16th BIRTHDAY PARTY?

(side note: She LOVES Guns N' Roses.)

if she's a GNR fan, you HAVE TO play "patience"

So play some of GnR's acoustic songs, like Patience? Dunno if I'd call that an attention getter though :P
Play some famous songs, ones that people will know and want to sing along with.

Shes cute. Not hot. But that kinda pretty where it makes up for her not being the hottest chick on the planet.

Wonderwall - Oasis
SCoM / Paradise City / Knocking on Heaven's Door - GnR(improvise the solo where you can't reach the notes)

Does she like Nickelback and 3 Doors Down? Try some of their songs.


Maybe something like Muse?

I'm assuming that you're going to sing, right? Otherwise nobody is really going to appreciate or even care what song you play for them.

Yes, I am singing haha.

x2 on the wish you were here.

ideally, you'd want to sing a song that everyone knows. that way most people will join in which will mask your voice if you aren't that good a singer.

if you ARE a good singer. sing a song nobody knows so that all the attention is on you.

I played Gay bar by electric six at My Friends B-Day and it went over great. Although it was taken as a comedy act and not a song so...I would try something sappy and main stream to grab attention.
Aum Mani Padme Hum-Avalokiteshvara
(Om jewel in the lotus Hum)

- "Sweet home Alabama" - Lynyrd Skynyrd
- "Won't forget these days" - Fury in the Slaughterhouse (it's a quite popular band in Germany but I don't know if they are known whereever you live, however, the song is quite emotional on birthdays)
- some Beatles stuff because everyone knows it

And of cause (already said) "I'm Yours" and "Wonderwall"

Beatles-Birthday


This is the number one song that needs to played at every birthday party where there's a guitar. Really.

But if you can manage to do it on Acoustic...how bout Sweet Child O Mine if she loves GNR?
