you should try
"Every Rose HGas It's Thorn" by Poison
"Heaven" by Warrant
"Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton


based on what you listen to, youre probably not a fan of older music
(dont mind me, but i rlly hate those bands mentioned above)

but give those songs a shot, there nice n easy

but try them anyways

Neil Young- especially Harvest or the acoustic songs on Rust Never Sleeps
Also a lot of Fleetwood Mac songs

There are TONNES, I love acoustic music too.

One huy who I think is pretty good who is around at the minute would be Newton Faulkner. The first half of his album 'Hand Built by Robots' has been in my CD player for a good solid week now. (well, obviously the FULL album is in my CD player, but I only ever have time to really listen to the first half).

Check out - All I Got, To the Light, Dream Catch Me, I Need Something, People Should Smile More, Teardrop (Massive Attack cover/ and about as close as anyone will ever get to bettering the original).

EDIT: I'd imagine this would be his Myspace...

You've probably already heard it, but Unplugged In New York - Nirvana is just such an album.

And try José Gonzales - Veener and Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise.

I really like acoustic music. I always look for acoustic tracks after I buy a new CD because these tracks are especially wonderful and free I think.
My favourite acoustic songs are "That' the Way", "Going to California", "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" by Led Zeppelin; "Soldier of Fortune" by Deep Purple; "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas; "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton.

I also like such acoustic albums as "Acoustic (Live!)" - Scorpions; "Unplugged In New York" - Nirvana; "Sometimes" - City and Colour.

Standout track - "Hotel California (acoustic version)" by The Eagles

All time acoustic band is Tenacious D. Great rock and comedy. Kyle Gass can really play the guitar well.

Real bassists know about different techniques and are aware of the merits and applications of each.

Because we're the least ignorant, most hardworking and most talented musicians in the world. We also surpass all others in general awesomeness.

I suppose that no-one of you ever heard about Days Of The New.
"That was it, a nick. Now happily paid for. [...] It was decided that it was so far away in time and influence that...well, you only get caught when you're successful. That's the game". Robert Plant

This music might be a bit tame for the younger crowd however i think the band "America" studio versions of their songs sound really good.

Here is one of my favorites from the band "America"...it almost has that hippy Flower child kind of feel however I like it.

List of albums they put out

The live versions on you tube sound bad (those live videos on you tube all sound pretty bad though)

Here is Horse with no name...another excellent acoustic song.

America - Ventura Highway
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83mnMD8JEFs

The bass guitar is really good in these tunes as well.

Wilco's great. They're not ONLY acoustic though, but a lot of their best music is.

The Nightwatchman (Tom Morello) is really good. His first album ,which just recently came out, One Man Revolution is very good acoustic music.
