Hey, me and my friend are looking for some songs that have two acoustic guitar parts in them. Nothing really complex, just nice sounding. It would be good if itís pretty mellow as well.

Any suggestions?

Check out "Is it you" by Blue Rodeo. Very nice with 2 guitars.

Look at the Dave and Tim Live at Luther stuff. Not all mellow, but there are some really good laid back tunes on it.

Jack Johnson-Oh crap, now I can't remeber if it's flake or a different one. Oh well, Listen to a whole bunch. There's no such thing as too much Jack Johnson.

Bob Dylan's Desolation Row comes to mind, but I don't know if you wanna play an 11 minute song.

Wish You Were Here by The Pink FLoyd comes to mind first. I also agree on Desolation Row.

If you want a stretch look at Yes - Heart of the Sunrise (Acoustic) or the California Guitar Trio cover of it which was really good.

Plenty of Grateful Dead tunes fit the bill, for instance Ripple, Uncle Johns Band, Bird Song etc...

Most of James Taylor's acoustic tunes were written for two guitars (even though they were often recorded with a full band and can often be done well with only a single guitar). Simon and Garfunkle had quite a few as well.

Un-plugged is not the same as never-was-plugged-in-to-begin-with.
