Hey everybody,
Just picked up my first acoustic, and OSP. It was cheap, but plays very well for the price tag. I've been playing electric for years, but I'd like to learn some acoustic songs. Anybody have any cool songs for me to start with? It dosn't have to be extremely easy, but just something that'll get me a little furthur then what I am now. I don't know what type of music, it dosn't matter. I listen to all sorts of metal, rock and some blues.

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

I'm scarred for life

Thanks for all the replies.
All I've taken the time to learn was '3 Doors Down-If I Could Be Like That'. I already knew some songs, stuff from Cinderella and some other older bands.

Can anybody tell me what gauge strings they mainly use on acoustic, just so I can get an idea. This one came with 12's, and there much more difficult to play with then what I'm use to on electric. (9's)

Acoustics typically use 12s. But there are 11s and 10s if you feel that 12s are too difficult to play with. Although I think most people tend to stick with 12s, some even use 13s for the better tone.

Heres some acoustic songs by Creed:

With Arms Wide Open Acoustic
My Own Prison Acoustic
Alone Acoustic Ft. Tool
One Acoustic
Whats this Life For Acoutic

Some of these are tricky to play, but just keep practicing them. It helps with fingerpicking to. Have fun, and if you dont like creed, sorry. But these sound great.
