I am looking for some song suggestions. I fingerpick the acoustic, but I don't like the bluesy ragtime stuff. I can play stuff like #3 by Ben Harper, Vincent by Chet Atkins, Fire and Rain James Taylor, Little Wing by Hendrix, Blackbird, etc. I prefer songs that sound best on one guitar. I really need a new song to learn and I haven't gotten inspired in months. I would love to play Angelina by Tommy Emmanuel but that is way too hard.

Any suggestions?

PS. I love one guitar arrangements for Beatles songs, if anyone has any good ones.

Hmm..."Night's Sorrow" by Becoming the Archetype. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&ct=res&cd=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ultimate-guitar.com%2Ftabs%2Fb%2Fbecoming_the_archetype%2Fnights_sorrow_tab.htm&ei=LrEsSPySM6KShAKPiv2yBg&usg=AFQjCNG86BiXyDp9D0iCrbQA9qFpn9nlVw&sig2=b8l0GA4dy6kjhC1l6BR2zg
You will have to find a copy of it to listen to...its on iTunes. Youtube it and its on there too. But the only real hard part is the first stretch and the harmonics. Really awesome.

bold as love? try to create a more complicated version of stairway to heaven like Stanley Jordon. Layla. georgia on my mind by martin taylor. cannonball rag, drifting. try to branch out of your style. reinvent a song to another genre


btw you have good taste.


sorry about my grammer and such,,,,,,,,,its late:/

Try:
"My name is Jonas" - Weezer
"Falling away with you" - Muse
Both really good songs, and really fun to play.

Mason Williams, not Clapton. It's a huge misconception that Clapton ever recorded this song, which he did not.

thay also are a killer band

shine of silver thaw, hana(flower), hajimari - masaaki kishibe or any other song by him pretty much (check out the user Qpidon on youtube anything he covers is a beautiful fingerpicking song i think)
trilogie, memories of our future - antoine dufour
red hills - staffan svahn

try some chet atkins... he does a song called vincent

also any of his other stuff is amazing. i get a kick out of him sweep picking in country songs in the 50's...

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

scar540  lol so happy someone else digs them, hard to find Coheed fans outside of their shows -_- also (by them) look at Iron fist, here we are juggernaut (thats in a lil different tuning not too crazy) or check out Claudio's Prize fighter inferno stuff like elm street lover boy and half measures....um the light and the glass is GREATTTTTT pretty simplistic (i kinda added some notes n made it my own)
