easy acoustic guitar song.. that sounds good?

Some songs i know and like are:
Opportunity by pete murray
Drive by incubus
Californication by RHCP

  1. “Stairway” is not an easy acoustic song, especially if it’s your very first song. People do say “Time of your Life” is the easiest. But Jack Johnson songs are simple.

  2. lots of rhcp songs sound great acoustic like under the bridge and john frusciantes version of how deep is you love, i could have lied is simple and beautiful
    i know metallica is pretty heavy but nothing else matters sounds great on an acoustic
    here is a larger list
    be like that – 3 doors down
    the kill – 30 seconds to mars
    big empty, creep, interstate lovesong, plush – stone temple pilots
    any audioslave song (be youself, doesnt remind me, like a stone)
    i will follow you in to the dark – death cab for cutie (if you cant pick it right the chords still sound nice)
    black hole sun – sound garden
    the unforgiven, fade to black – metallica (not heavy songs but kinda needs two guitars (the verse part to fade to black is awesome)
    how do you love, december, shine – collective soul
    horse with no name, ventura highway – america
    wanted (dead or alive) – bon jovi
    taers of the dragon – bruce dickinson
    dust in the wind – originally by kansas but many covers are out there some of em played a little differently
    glycerine – bush
    good riddance, macy’s day parade – green day
    wherever you will go – the calling
    anything by creed, so many of their songs are great on acoustic
    hotel california – the eagles (the picking is hard but if you capo the second fret there is an alternate way to play it thats on the acoustic version of the hell freezes over tour)
    layla – eric clapton (hey its a classic)
    my immortal – evenescence(piano part sounds great on a guitar)
    i could go on but im tired you can message me if none of these did it for you

  3. I just started playing guitar, and the first one I learned was
    Anyone Else – Juno (Only 2 chords)
    Some other easy ones are:
    Dance Floor Anthem – Good Charolette
    Breaking the Habit – Linkin Park
    Any Avril Lavigne songs
    but thats all I can think of right now. Hope it helped =]

  4. tesla sounds awesome
    “what you give” is the first song i learned and still one of my favorites to play
    also “love song” and “signs”
