I want to learn some songs so that when i want i can play for my daughter who will be born in September. It'll be cool to be able to put her to sleep though some good music like Claptons "Wonderful Tonight". any thoughtful suggestions would be appreciated.
Crank your rig on 12, let it feedback wide-open for a good two minutes, freak your neighbors out and ENJOY THE POWER OF THE GUITAR! 'Oh, what a feeling,' and it ain't no damned Toyota!" ----Dimebag Darrell

I was going to suggest "tears in heaven", but that's lyrically unsuitable. Not that a newborn baby cares much about lyrics, but the parents might.

Also learn Brahms' lullaby.



well considering tears in heaven was written for his son who died. Its actually a pretty good suggestion. thanks!

While My Guitar Gently Weeps would be a good one if you look into the acoustic version off of Anthology 3.
I pride myself on my humility.

your a wreck, an accident, forget the freak your just nature, keep the gun oiled and the temple clean, shit snort and blaspheme, let the heads cool and the engine run, because in the end everything we do is just everything we've done.

Alice in Chain's softer music. Like nutshell.
She won't understand the words, and it's very pretty, melodic, and simple for a newborn.

Or Goodbye to Yesterday by Spock's Beard

Yesterday by the Beatles

The Answer Lies Within - Dream Theater

A few ideas.

Or Vacant by Dream Theater.
Written for the singer's daughter too, who fell into a coma.
Very soft, soothing song.

Anything of Buckethead's Colma album.
the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn

Someone mentioned satch and I immediately thought of "Always With You Always With Me". I find it very soothing and peaceful, however I am not a baby so the emotions felt could be different.

Stevie Wonder - Isn't She Lovely

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she lovely
Life and love are the same
Life is Aisha
The meaning of her name
Londie, it could have not been done
Without you who conceived the one
That's so very lovely made from love

Death. Slayer. Obituary. Just kidding.

Go for The Beatles! Yesterday, Across the Universe, Hey Jude, Strawberry Fields Forever...I can imagine those songs really gently played and sung on the acoustic..and if I was a newborn baby, I'd probably enjoy it!

Wonderful Tonight is an amazingly beautiful son, as a parent, I would feel weird playing it for my daughter though, seeing as how it is about Clapton's love for Harrison's wife ahahahahaha.

However, Zoe Jane is amazing, I plan on playing it for my daughter, just switching her name in place.

With Arms Wide Open by Creed is my suggestion.
