So, I've fallen in love with my 12 stringed guitar again, and I was wondering. Could anyone recomend me any songs, I'm starting with John Butler soon, although I need my guitar in Open C for his songs, which is way to hard without a good tuner.

So, Could anyone recomend me any songs?
Cheers.

More than a feeling - Boston lol its easy tho

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave
I dont wanna die, Im a god, why cant I live on?
When the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste.
And in my last hour,
Im a slave to the power of death

Thats an amazing song, one of my favourite Feeder songs (before they got all commercial and horrible), didn't realise it was played on a 12 string..
Let me tell you about heartache and the loss of god

Out here in the perimeter there are no stars

Out here we is stoned

Dude seriously get yourself a tuner!!! John Butler's stuff is the way to go!

Be sure to learn Ocean. There is a studio version but i prefer the many different live ones. John always changes how this instrumental goes but this version has been tabbed

You can attempt to learn a Basho tune...but I don't believe any tab exists.
