Hey mates!

I'm learning the guitar 'cause I think there's nothing cooler than to sit and sing n' play on the acoustic. And ultimately the same thing we all dream about, placing ourself in front of some adorable lady and make a tremble to a love song from the heart !

But I think it's hard to find some good songs, y'know, it shouldn't either be a song thats too abnormal (like from some of the less wellknown bands) nor should it be "too" popular, atleast I feel like a foll when playin' "Hey There Delilah"

So I'm having a hard time here, since today, the newer generation hardly know amazing bands like The Who and Pink Floyd, anybody have some suggestions of which songs to play while fading in the pretty eyes of some young girl ?

Keep in my I'm just a poor novice thou, peace ya'll!

PS: Excuse me of my poor gramma!

entrails ripped from a virgin's ****

but srsly

as much as I hate to say it a lot of john mayer stuff would work

Also some stuff by the john butler trio, jason mraz, generally it'll be more mainstream stuff.

I'd look at some songs by City and Colour too. Its an acoustic solo project by the clean vocalist from alexisonfire

"Thinking About You" by Radiohead, it's off their 1st album that nobody has heard because it's not OK Computer.

Searchbar, but until you learn how to use it, this song always works

So I, with a broomstick(Just in case) walk right where they can see me and I said:

"You kids ever taken a broom up the ass?"

The look on their face was priceless, and they ran, and I mean ran like a bat out of hell.

Write your own song. Women find that far more impressive and attractive.

Satan isn't inside a guitar pick. He's in here. In our hearts. He's what makes us not want to go to work, or excercise or tell the truth. He's that little voice in your mind that says "Fuck you" to the people you hate.

most beatles, lennon, mccartney, clapton, hendrix songs would work really well.

just a warning though, the better you can play, the less good they'll think you are :O it always happens, if you're next to someone who can hardly play, the girls will nearly always tell you to shut up coz there's a pro sat next to you :O so be prepared for stuff like that.

Thats a good one. Easy to sing and play. One of the first songs I learned. Make sure you get the D Dsus D etc, progression in there too; its fun to do and sounds good.

i would say think back to 5 years ago. think of a good song that was really popular but now it's fallen into obscurity with time. when people hear a song they love but have forgotten about the reaction is always good. and also consider some country songs.

Ask her for her fav song, serious. Then you can't get it wrong.

I did it, and this girl sent me a couple of songs. Never heard of them in my life, but she said if I play them to her she will love me forever. Which OBVIOUSLY means teh secks!

BUT, I need a capo to play these songs, so tomorow. I'm off to buy one, my virginity depends on it.

You're playing guitar for the wrong reason. Don't play to get a woman, play to please yourself. Perhaps later you can use your skill to get a woman, but don't make it the reason you play guitar

Gear:
Ibanez JPM P100A
Schecter C7 Loomis
Ibanez Rg1570
Agile Intrepid 828 Pro Dual
Schecter Omen FR Extreme
Ibanez RG550 (Fernandez Sustainer)
