jack johnson stuff is pretty fun to play, not very hard either. the only thing is that its not always open chords.

There are happy acoustic songs?


Hey Ya by Outkast has a nice, simple chord progression and is pretty upbeat. Wild Wood by Paul Weller is harder but you might like it. And of course more or less anything by Jack Johnson will do you just fine too.

I personally like the acoustic version of "Pressing On" by Relient K and "At the Bottom of Everything" by Bright Eyes.

Check out Neil Young, Jack Johnson and Ben Harper, especially Ben's slide stuff if you want to use an open tuning.
