you could go for country blues like sonny terry and brownie mcghee
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

Most of AC/DC is based on the blues, in particular the early Bon era,... I play all their blues on an acoustic in the garden in the good weather and it sounds great,.... plus it's a great way of introducing people to a group that they would normally dismiss as "heavy metal"

All my neighbours appreciate AC/DC now hehehe

Songs to go for (I recommend these tabs... http://www.geocities.com/maniac1075/AC-DC)

The Jack
Night Prowler
Little Lover
Ride On

They're all very easy to start with

Robert Johnson is incredible to listen to. Its haunting and magical, and unbelievable to think that its just him playing on his own.

The Jack

What albums are those songs on, mate? I have The Jack on their live album (the one with the huge blowup woman over the stage) but I don't think I know any of the others.
Let me tell you about heartache and the loss of god
Wandering, wandering in hopeless night
Out here in the perimeter there are no stars

Out here we is stoned

I found a site with all of RJ's songs tabbed if anyone's interested.

What is it????

As for suggestions, how about Blind Willie McTell and Blind Lemon Jefferson?
