Well, in about a month I'm gonna be playing solo acoustic at a girls 16th birthday party. The I'm probably going to be playing for upwards of 3 hours (eek)

This is my solo debut, and I'm stuck on a good song to get people into it.

I have a large variety of genre's I'm covering. Pretty much anything from Bob Dylan to Led Zeppelin to Dashboard Confessional.

So have a lot of songs, I just can't find one that will be an awesome opener.

Anyone have any ideas?
Just let the good times roll.

well i dunno if its ur style but an acoustic version of headspin might be a good choice because its both slow and soft and heavy wich can get ppl ready for both styles you may play

Do "The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot" by Brand New, that should get the crowd going. If not, then "Hands Down" by Dashboard.

its how they opened up "the last dispatch" and it was amazing

It's just a sweet acoustic song and chicks dig it I doubt you can really 'get the crowd going' with an acoustic tune.

Yeah, I'm already doing Hands Down, as well as a few other DC songs that the girl requested.


And thanks to everyone, I'm listening to all the songs you guys have posted and learning a lot of them.

Sweep picking if i could actually get faster at it. But overall . . everything. Every technique in guitar playing is worth learning or playing. Nice thread by the way

it's not an acoustic song but play around with it a bit and do "How Deep is Your Love" by the Bee Gee's it's a cool song and when I played it chicks dug it so yead.

Write something. Make it up-beat and with some really simple lyrics so you can get a sing-along going.

Failing that, check out The John Butler Trio - Zebra.

Only looking at music as math and theory, is like only looking at the love of your life as flesh and bone.

Swinging to the rhythm of the New World Order,
Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
