Anyone know any good acoustic songs or specific riffs that are fun to play?
Any skill level is welcome, just looking for new technical acoustic songs.

Thanks

Not sure if you like A7X, but in the song sidewinder, there are some pretty sick acoustic licks at the end. The 2nd acoustic solo is pretty challenging too. The first isn't that hard though.

^^ most technical acoustic player is by far Tommy Emmanuel. Not to mention, he's a superb instrumental acoustic songwriter.

Nauraushaun by Shabutie is by far my favorite acoustic song. On the same note, The Prize Fighter Inferno is an excellent acoustic-based album.

the intro is the only acoustic part its really pretty simple its palm muted the only slightly difficult part is the 2 string sweep even thats real easy

thats a fun acoustic riff if ur a guitar playing robot but if ur a human being i'd try something easier
