I'm looking for a few good songs to play on acoustic guitar. I have a few already such as Good Riddance, Stairway To Heaven, and others but I'm trying to find about 5 or so songs that are played with the chords and a great sounding strum pattern. Maybe some fast paced ones or some that sound and look complicated but are fairly easy. If both cannot be found in a song then I can learn a few complicated strum rhythms If anyone can help me out, it would be much appreaciated.

Check out Paul Weller's Days Of Speed Album.

It's a recording of a concert he did with just himself and an acoustic guitar.

Jack Johnson.

I'm not usually a fan but it sounds great on an acoustic, and is just fun to play somehow.

Gear:
-Custom Frankenstrat (Now in bits pending a home-made Charvel So-Cal mod)
-Boss ME-25 (Modded with gaffer tape and blu-tack)

Modes and scales are dumb and useless. Stop learning them. No, seriously.

Drive - Incubus

Locomotive Breath - Jethro Tull
Breaking the Girl - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Jane Says - Jane's Addiction
Take a Picture - Filter
Interstate Love Song - Stone Temple Pilots
Cumbersome - Seven Mary Three
Dust in the Wind - Kansas
Peace of Mind - Boston
Just What I Needed - The Cars
Long Train Running - The Doobie Brothers

These are some pretty standard, easily recognizable, and simple to play riffs.
