So, I recently restringed my beat-up Fender [F-15, I believe] acoustic guitar with some brand new Martins, and I'm looking for some cool songs to learn on acoustic. I need some help, as I'm not only a guitarist, but also a YouTube junkie, and need some cool video ideas. I've already done an electric cover of Over the Hills and Far Away (though I forgot to tune up before making the videos -_-'), and I have practically no ideas for acoustic song covers (I'll probably do Wish You Were Here when I get a 12-string). I'd try to make something up, but I'm in the mood for a cover. Anyone got any good suggestions? I'm open to all ideas!

Check out John Mayer, John Frusciante and Jack Johnson for some cool acoustic songs

Hey, thanks for the quick replies, guys! Well, I've already learned Over the Hills. I kind of know Gallows Pole, but it is pretty tricky. I would do Hey There Delilah, but I've kind of grown tired of the song. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, now that one is tricky. I've learned the intro, but I've forgotten it by now, and it is pretty hard.

You know, I was thinking of doing an acoustical cover of Soul to Squeeze, with two videos. One with acoustic guitar and one with bass, and then I could combine them together into one and upload it to YouTube...might be tricky, as I have rhythm troubles :P.

Thanks again for the suggestions, and please add more!

Oh. I didn't see the giant sticky topic. How stupid of me! I'll just browse through its pages for a good song. But thanks to all who replied anyway!

I don't know if you are into Bayside but Winter is a pretty sweet song
