Okay, I KNOW there have been endless threads done on "what song should I play to get girls" but what I'm wondering is this:

Is there a good acoustic song I could play to impress everyone (girls would be a plus, but not essential). I want to keep it simple; I want a song I could just whip out the guitar for at the campfire or in the living room and everyone will enjoy it.

The thing is, I can't sing. So, are there some good instrumental songs that are simple but are still interesting?

Thanks for the help.

C'mon, this answers in this thread will be exactly the same as the ones in the types of threads you mentioned, just without the ones that are solely chords.

Tears in Heaven, Good Riddance, Classical Gas, etc etc etc blah blah blah.

That said, I recommend Muse's Bedroom Acoustics for something that won't sound trite and overdone.

Ok I saw this on some other post but ?People who don?t play guitar are impressed with anything you play and people who do play aren?t impressed with anything?...so I say play what you want?and people will listen...try to play stuff that impresses you if anything
#7
is there anybody out there by pinkflyod thats about as perfect as it gets
#8
hey "yawn", whats the song called in the "code" thing? Was playing it before sounds awesome, but i dont know if i was playing it at the right speed and everything.
#9
^ Actually I wrote it

Untitled and unrecorded at the moment, unfortunately.

It definitely does have a set tempo and rhthym, tho.

Anything that you can play well will get the job done really. I've found that most people don't have a great ear for music, but they will know when something you play sounds good. So just play stuff that you know that you can play flawlessly, or close to flawless, and if you screw up, don't show it. They usually won't know you've screwed up until you groan.

All that being said, try Patterns in the Ivy by Opeth. It's a short song, but it sounds really cool.
