I'm going on vacation to ocean city next month, so i figured i'd make some extra cash by playing my acoustic guitar on the boardwalk.

So far i'm gonna play some originals, and an instrumental made for acoustic guitar...but what are some famous or good songs that people would like/could relate to that i can play on acoustic guitar?

Bruce Springsteen - 4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)

The song lends itself to a boardwalk - and there's a pretty good chord chart here on UG. (It's listed just under "Sandy")

Glad I could help.

Anything by Bruce Springsteen really. He's pretty much the king of the Jersey shore.

I don't know anything specific, but take some time to learn a few songs that are usually played on the radio today. As stupid as it sounds, you can get quite a few kids interested in what you have to play, then go into the more obscure/older things. Consider it an introduction into purification of the musical mind.

Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley.. might be kind of hard to pull off though.

and about the legality of it all, do people really ever get arrested for busking illegaly? i doubt it, i'm sure you could just say oh my bad and stop playing. g-luck
If you're in a war, instead of throwing a hand grenade at the enemy, throw one of those small pumpkins. Maybe it'll make everyone think how stupid war is, and while they are thinking, you can throw a real grenade at them.

Ocean City, NJ or Ocean City, Maryland?

Jersey > Maryland. Just saying.

Absolute truth. I'm going to Ocean City, NJ week after next.

I think it's also worth pointing out that Jersey girls > Maryland girls in every conceivable manner, but must notably easiness.

I was there about 3 days ago. Some of your competition may include:

- A banjo player
- An old man that plays several lame instruments at once.
- Some "Bro" acoustic players. (ie: aeropostale T's and sideways visors)
- And a Catholic preacher which drew the biggest crowd.

It depends on what you want, for chicks play songs skanky 17 year olds will know. But since you want money i'd go with some more mature classic songs.

All In the Waiting - Buckethead. Great song. Get a portable acoustic amp and a looping pedal so you can do some rhythm parts as well.

Or Padmasana, even though it's somewhat lengthy, I really enjoy it. I tabbed it too.

i was there the other week and there was a dude making weird sounds into some weird long tube instrument that i have no idea what it is called. if i woulda been high, it woulda been the funniest thing ive ever seen.

Hate the song, but it'll either net you some attention or people will just think you're another douchebag with an acoustic guitar and no job.
