Hi there guys. It's not often i wonder into here, but I thought I'd learn soem sogns for my acousitc since I barely touch it.

I know there is a "Detailed What Song" thread, but I don't want to have to look through that to find easy songs, and some songs in there I don't know. I'm looking for some easy acoustic songs that everybody knows. If there isa little fingerpicking, that is fine, although I have barely ever finger picked in my life. Preferably though, I want to be able to use a pick/strum chords.

I know Knockin' On Heavens Door, and A Favor House Atlantic (Well some of it) + Keep Rockin' In a Free world, but I want more, more, more!

All help appreciated.

Edit: i also know Wonderwall. Forgot about that.

"Wild Thing": (The Trogs) G-C-D Played back and forth.
"A Country Boy Can Survive": (Hank Jr.) D-Am-G-D
(Easy to figure out fills, throw in an F on the break)
"Heart Of Gold" (Neil Young) EM-D / Em-C-D-G
"Guitar Town" (Steve Earle) G-D-C
"Simple Man" (Lynyrd Skynyrd) C-G-Am
(fairly easy to figure out picking pattern and riff)
"Kansas City" (not sure who did it) E-A-B-E
(You can have some fun adding your pinky on little E string on the A and B chords)
1/2 my brain tied behind my back, just to make it fair.

"Lying Eyes" by Eagles is a ripper. It sounds really cool, and is easy to play, but doesn't sound "basic"

"Desperado" is another good Eagles song as well.

Quote by 2007 Stupidity Awards


Instead of using Valves, could I use Light Bulbs instead? If so, would the new energy saving ones be OK? Coz I do a lot of playing

I got my pick stuck inside my guitar . . . . how am I supposed to get it out?
