i have recently picked up the acoustic guitar after playing bass for 4 years and electric guitar for 1. i was wondering if any of you guys knew some good stoner and/or hippie acoustic songs for me to play on my new acoustic. thanks much

"stoner and hippie songs" i suppose thats one way to put it...

thats a very poor description of what you're looking for. Maybe give simon and garfunkle a try.

edit: anything by tom petty sounds great acoustic, and is very, as you say 'stoner ish'

Oh yeh "Bad Fish" by Sublime is good
"Girl" or "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" by The Beatles are also good.

If thats all you think stoners listen to you are GREATLY mistaken.

TS, pull your head out of your ass, too.

/e: So that I'm slightly helpful.. Try Slightly Stoopid. Give their acoustic album a listen, lots of material there and almost all painfully easy.

That first link you posted is probably my most favorite YouTube video and it's also a great song to play. If you're a panic fan check this out. It has just about everything.

Of course, but if you ask a stereotypical question like that you're gonna get stereotypical answers.

I agree

But my suggestions:

Slightly Stoopid - Open Road (easy and very nice sounding rhythm section)

Jefferson Airplane - Embryonic Journey (beautiful song)

Maybe learn an easy to sing Marley song? His chord progressions are really just a percussive accompanyment to his singing so they don't sound quite right by themslves but tbh there are so many of his songs that are well known you could easily learn to sing and play one or two.

Maybe something by The Doors? Works better on electric but sounds fine on acoustic. Every stoner I know (me included) loves The Doors Peace Frog is a beasty rhythm, LA Woman is easy apart from the solo which is a pain to play on acoustic IMO, erm, People are strange is very very easy,
