Hey all, i've been trying to find some good bluesy songs for acoustic. I've worked through a bit of EC's Unplugged, find some of it a bit too hard but not too bad. I just don't know where to go now. I'm looking for something intermediate. I have played Robert Johnson and Delta, but really just want some acoustic blues! Any recommendations for songs to learn?

Listen to the Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at MTV Acoustic album, its mindblowingly good. A lot of it may be a little tricky, but even so its still worth checking out.

Learn Black Queen by Stephen Stills, pretty bluesy. Maybe some Son House or some of Buddy Guy's acoustic songs like Crawlin' Kingsnake

Some of the best players I've ever seen have dedicated their life to trying to play robert johnson, so I'd stay just stick with that, because theirs no way you've come close to having that figured out yet. In my opinion, that's the end of be all of acoustic blues.

Epiphone 2010 Les Paul Tribute
Ibanez AW30ECE Acoustic

There are many fine acoustic blues players. Check out David Bromberg, Jorma Kaukkonen, and folks in that bunch. Stephan Grossman as well.
Traditional fingerstyle blues.
For that matter, check out the fellows that influenced those cats. I keep harping on this, I know... But you want to listen to the Delta blues masters who influenced ALL the contemporary players.
That whole British blues revival that spawned Clapton and the Stones and near everyone else came about when those guys discovered the great old bluesmen.

A number of these guys related being amazed that the old blues players were not big important stars... That they were in fact often retired in poverty.
