What would you guys consider those "feel good" or inspirational acoustics you know or would suggest?

I already know wonderwall, i'm getting ready to try it for the first time but I was looking for a nice repetoire because I only know two other songs.

Blackbird and Horse with no name and I'd like to expand with something I could play for my family. Thanks in advance.

Take it Easy by the Eagles always makes me smile; as does These Days by Jackson Browne. Slip Slidin' Away by Paul Simon is another one.

The name originates from the Greek root words "nekros" ("dead body")[2] and "phagous" ("to eat, eater of")

I am sure they make beautiful music with a name like that.

Jack Johnson's songs

Gary Jules' "Mad World"

"More Than Words" by Extreme

"Overkill" by... - some guy I can't remember

And I like to play "Knocking on Heaven's Door" whenever I need to be more relaxed.

SCRUBS!!! lol it is a good song tho

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave
I dont wanna die, Im a god, why cant I live on?
When the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste.
And in my last hour,
Im a slave to the power of death

hang, by matchbox twenty. nice chords and solo, beautiful lyrics.

search matchbox 20 if nothing comes up.

if someone could do a better version of the solo than the one on this site, it would be VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.

Tommy Emmanuel's work is always good, try 'Angelina', 'those who wait', 'over the rainbow'. Much more, just have a look at them on youtube or something.
