Yeah that's right, I'm looking for songs that can be played without backing tracks.

Just like a Piano alone does the whole thing i wonder if there's songs like that for the guitar.

Preferably something around classic\neoclassic\blues ? thanks

I'm not quite sure what you're asking... You mean just guitar plain by its self? Like doesn't need drums or bass or anything to make it sound good? If that is what you mean anything by Hendrix.
Current Gear:
Mexican Fender Telecaster
Robert Smith custom Jazzmaster
Stratocaster
Vox AC4TV

There are a lot of songs that sound fine without any backing tracks. I think most songs can be played without accompaniment if you can play it right. Having a walking bass line on a blues song would be able to do that just fine. Try browsing youtube for covers and look around.

Bach composed a few for the lute that work for solo guitar. Bourree's fun.

Also, if you don't know Romanza Anonimo, learn it, it's one of those songs that you have to know.

I don't know if you'll be interested, but I bet Sotto Voce by The Human Abstract would probably cool for you to learn. It's an awesome song and it will probably provide plenty of challenge.

OR

Dust in the Wind. Epic song that's not TOO hard and it's always fun to play.

If you learn to play classical guitar then there are thousands upon thousands of pieces that sound good on solo guitar.

War Hero by Rise Against....

There is a part with drums in, but hey? It can be avoided, just it isn't as powerful that way.


I'm thinking you mean "Hero of War"
