I was asked to play a gig on a saturday morning at a bar for a brunch sort of thing. It will be just me, and the songs I'll be playing are mostly classic rock songs (which isno problem for me). But, they will be mostly acoustic covers of songs, because no one wants to listen to screaming electric guitar on a saturday morning at breakfast. I also won't be singing (most likely).

So my question to the pit is, what are some classic rock songs with fun and full guitar parts that I could do acoustic covers of?

I answered a similar question yesterday, and i had about 30 odd songs on the list. check my previous posts and find the list that way.

EDIT: here's the post.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

if you convert the keyboards to guitar, the doors. stones. i feel like hendrix would make interesting acoustic stuff, but it would be hard to pull off... less to the point, screaming electric guitar is the best way to start your saturday

Hm....Hendrix is an interesting idea. I might see what I can do with that.
And personally, I love me some screaming electric guitar in the morning...but apparently hung over/still drunk customers don't....if I had it my way, I would definately bring it along...

Don't play any of the songs people have suggested so far, they are all songs that everyone has heard a million times already. I know I would be annoyed if I was out eating and heard someone playing wish you were here, stairway to heaven, hotel California, free bird, etc.

Smoke on the Water. Seriously. Write an acoustic cover of it. I once made an acoustic version of Paranoid by Black Sabbath.

it would be pretty hard on an acoustic and it takes a while to memorize if you dont know it but Cliffs of Dover also plug in baby by muse it isnt classic rock but its awesome and sounds good on acoustic kind of spanishy

Pink Floyd and the Beatles have TONS of songs that translate very well into an electric guitar.

Across the Universe
With a Little Help from My Friends
A Day in the Life
Practically anything from Rubber Soul or Revolver

For the Floyd
Pigs on the Wing Parts 1 and 2
Vera
Hey You
Is There Anybody Out There
Breathe
Brain Damage/Eclipse

Also, Over the Hills and Far Away is a good choice for Zeppelin as is What is And What Should Never Be
