Ive been playing guitar for about two years now and want to start busking casually. I play a bit of classical stuff as well as more popular stuff like Bryan Adams and the Beatles, etc...I can fingerpick or play with a pick. Any suggestions would be helpful. I dont really sing so fairly simple acoustic pieces that are quick to learn would be great. Thanks

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

i know, thats why i said improvise and didnt say a song title for fear of getting it wrong, even though maybe only 5 people would notice.....

Uh, it would be a lot better if you could sing. Maybe you could do an acoustic version of "Beautiful Day" by U2.

But only if you had a singer.

Play flamenco. Nothing better than hearing flamenco guitar when you're out and about. YUM

Well, if you're not wanting to sing, it would have to be some pretty good instrumental music. Like flamenco or Dual Acoustics if you can get a friend.

However, if you do decide to sing...

Wonderwall - Oasis
Why Does It Always Rain On Me? - Travis
I Want To Hold Your Hand - The Beatles
Yellow - Coldplay
Twilight - Elliott Smith
Imagine - John Lennon

The possibilities are endless...
