If you could, give me some suggestions for acoustic songs to learn please.
I've been playing guitar for about 2 and a half years. I'd say I'm alright.
I'm looking for songs that are mainly focused on the guitar and a singer. For example, some songs i have learned are I Will Follow You into the Dark by Death Cab for Cutie and Beautiful World by Colin Hay.
Suggestions would be much appreciated.
And songs from indie bands and bands that not many people know would be fine. I'm currently learning some Bright Eyes songs.

Shine on you crazy diamond acoustic.

i think that "in the sun" by joseph arthur is fun to play. Its easy to sing too because i can pull it off and i have a mediocre singing voice at best.

or you can try some goo goo dolls stuff if you feel like tuning your guitar all the time haha

Try Everchanging, Swing Life Away and Roadside by Rise Against. Patience by G'N'R is pretty sick too. Anything by Tenacious D is ****ing sick to bust out! I just learned the The Metal.

Some Jack Johnson songs.

It's what I'm doing now

two good ones are Inaudible melodies, and Banana Pancakes. This site has great tabs for these songs too!

try Damien Rice. he has some interesting solo acoustic.

a song such as: Cannonball.

very intricate intro.

or learn to play the intro to Hotel California (by The Eagles if you didnt know).

then just learn the chords to the entire thing. its really simple but useful.

Blue in the Face by Alkaline Trio is a fun one to play.
You could try some Radiohead songs if you've got the voice for it. I like playing Fake Plastic Trees and High and Dry.

If you want to impress people (read: girls) Green Day's Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) is a good one to learn. It looks a whole lot harder than it actually is.

Flake by JJ is a percussive song. It's not terrible hard to play either, entirely barre-chords.
