There are so many........But lately I've been really hooked on "ring of fire" for the past while...........seems i can't pick up the guitar without playing this one at least once per......so simple but so fun to play and sing along with.

The guitar pieces I always end up playing when I pick my guitar up include these and a composition of my own that is, as yet, unrecorded.
Ryan Spendlove's Not That Strong
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEcxJaoC9MY

Amos Lee's Long Line Of Pain
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5lbHiBCyB4

Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIAb5XZQHsc

And if you want something dead simple to play, I sometimes also hit up a bit of Zac Brown Bands Colder Weather..

I really enjoy playing Tim McIlrath's "Unknown Song". It's really pretty and I find it irresistible.

'Kimbie' - Jackson C Frank. Simple but effective.
'Spencer the Rover' - John Martyn. In Open D, has a lovely lilt to it.
'Simple Twist of Fate' - Dylan. In Open G, drops down the bass line, then slides up again.

I like playing Hurt by Johnny Cash. It's east to play but you get so much out of it. Great song and sounds great when playing alone.

I like chord-y stuff that I can sing along to, I'm always trying to find different stuff but I play a LOT of Bright Eyes. Right now I'm playing I Will Follow You Into the Dark by Death Cab it's a pretty fun progression. The Dm to C/F change is weird though.

Also Kiss Me by Sixpense None The Richer

Tommy Emmanuel - Haba Na Haba
Jerry Reed - Jerry's Breakdown (I haven't learnt Chet's part yet)

There's something about the timing and the dynamics of Haba Na Haba that makes it such an enjoyable song to play.

More of a roots-type guy here...
Currently, I love playing Randall Collins by Norman Blake. A flatpicking tune in Em that you can really work out on.
Also, I still dig the old jazz/blues tune "Nobody Wants You When You're Down And Out." Great fingerstyle blues tune with jazzier chord changes... been around forever and recorded by everybody.

Joanna Smith- We Can't be Friends.

Beautiful melody, cool chromatic chord progression, a lot of feeling. Get to dust off the Classical Guitar too!
