In a bit of a bind. I have a two hour gig tomorrow. I split the time evenly with my dad because we don't play together but we share a drummer. I really need a nice acoustic setlist. This is like a chill backyard party so I'm going acoustic. I have a pretty good vocal range but not that good. So far this is what I've got. I've also got three originals that need to be put in so I'm thinking a set of 11 or 12. Suggestions for songs?

Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin
Always - Blink 182
Sorry - Buckcherry
There Is - Box Car Racer
Come On Get Higher - Matt Nathanson
Use Somebody - Kings of Leon
Paranoia In B Flat Major - The Avett Brothers

Listen to my covers here.

The Bard's Song - Blind Guardian
Brave Connor Mac - Slough Feg
Eyes Love You - hide

You could probably turn 99 Ways to Die - Megadeth fully acoustic too.

Any song from Alice In Chains' Jar of Flies.

Keep in mind that I gotta do this tomorrow. And I have to hit a party before the gig so I literally have today to learn new stuff.

If you can pull it off then a jeff buckley-esque version of hallejujah...
wonderwalls an obvious option..

but TBH its best learning songs you atleast know the words vaguely to already, you can turn loads of good songs into acoustic versions as long as they have laid down chords and a good vocal melody.

I've actually decided to add Hallelujah into the set. I've done it twice before in some shows a few months ago. Old people gush and young kids then go and listen to Jeff Buckley. It's a win-win situation.

I prefer the song by the Postal Service

It's a great acoustic song too

I Will Follow You Into the Dark by Death Cab and anything off Anthony Green's solo record are great also
