I'm looking for acoustic guitar tunes on You Tube etc, that I can learn and play as a solo acoustic guitar player. I play a few tunes, that I will list, but I could do with a few more. I'm competent, but have limits to what I can do, so not tapping style, or anything extremely elaborate. I play; Braun-yr-Aur & Black Mountain Side (Jimmy Page) Bert Jansch whistle.png

Mood for a day (Yes) and that's about it. Would love to do a few more, and look forward to hearing your ideas.

 

Cheers Mike

Friend of the Devil comes to mind.

 

Really though, any song can be turned acoustic.  My band is doing acoustic covers of classic rock and classic country tunes at the moment (to better fit into the brewery/coffee house venues).  We are doing everything from Chuck Berry and SRV to Dwight Yokam and Hank Williams Jr.  Most of the songs are not really "acoustic" tunes, but it's not hard to make them into something more like that. 

 

Here are some of my favorite songs to play solo acoustic style:

Thank you Matt. Re-jigging existing tunes is certainly one way of doing it, though not sure I'm very good at doing that?

 

Tony Rice is a brilliant guitarist :guitar:

 

Happy to hear any other ideas.

 

Cheers Mike

Personally I'd favour taking a non-acoustic song, and playing it acoustically. The possibilities are endless, and you'll be appreciated a lot more. And it's more fun trying to figure out ways of doing it to make it sound good.

 

At least that's my experience of it.

Sometimes playing solo acoustic gigs at venues that were not blues-specific, I felt I had to be able to do a fairly broad spectrum of requests when necessary through several different genres and popular artists of those genres. I also found I could choose a tune or two from each, in whatever genre or artist, and re-arrange it to how I wanted it to be, more to my style.

 

One example might be Jimi Hendrix (an often called-out "Dooo sum Hendrix..."  :yes:  ). "Purple Haze" might be tough to pull off as a decent solo acoustic tune, but I did my own more solo acoustic "bluesified" arrangements of "Hey Joe" and "The Wind Cries Mary"  and they always worked pretty well. Just one example. Same thing for... whatever.... Hank Williams (Sr.)... or... Bob Seger

 

Also it makes you feel pretty good when between sets sometimes somebody comes up and says something like "Man, I really liked your version of  "__________" a lot."


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

I'm still waiting for that :cwy:

 

Just joking. It is indeed nice to be appreciated.
