What are some good accoustic songs to put on a CD for a SO? I need some ideas please.
matchbook romance - tiger lily
the spill canvas - (anything by them really...)
Bleed The Dream - Should Have Known
Bleed The Dream - Shattered Memories
Bleed The Dream - Broken Wings
Bleed The Dream - A Smile for Judas
Ben harper- another lonely day
Weezer - Butterfly
Damien Rice - cannonball
The acoustic stuff on "When Incubus Attacks, Volume One."
Goo Goo Dolls - Iris
Extreme - More Than Words
Adrian Legg - Wine Women and Waltz, probably one of the best lesser known acoustic players. He does some interesting things with tunings
some songs off of i'm wide awake, it's morning
jethro tull - thick as a brick
jethro tull - dun ringill
jethro tull - wond'ring aloud
jethro tull - witch's promise
my dad is a huge jethro tull fan so i grew up listening to them and playing their stuff. their acoustic stuff definately got my chops up to par.....it's all fucking great.
any elliott smith or howie day
I am loving Bleed The Dream
I really like the song My Beautiful by Lennon Murphy and Travis Meeks
Nico - These Days
"Tonight Will Be Fine"
The Velvet Underground
"Stephanie Says" (edit: not acoustic...would probably blend in okay tho)
john frusciante - the past recedes
a lot of this guys music goes unnoticed, hes definately one of the best musicians in the world
Nick Drake- Place To Be
trying to learn that on guitar.... such a bitch. great song for finger picking practice though.
My vote is for the whole elliott smith - either/or album.
stereophonics - i miss you now
Peter Gabriel - in your eyes (rare live acoustic)
Anything off of Opeth's "Damnation"
"Passing Afternoon" by Iron and Wine
"The Scientist (Coldplay cover)" by Johnette Napolitano and Danny Lohner
"Nutshell" by Alice in Chains
"Serpentine" by Ani DiFranco
You got the tabs?
Also Pele - Little Hunts, but might be too upbeat for this comp...
that song is so good, way better than the original
Yeah I found the tabs online. I havent been playing guitar for too long though.
dylan's nashville sessions are good. and seu george's acoustic covers of bowie songs from the life aquatic soundtrack
holy shit this is badass...thanks for the reccomendation!
