Acoustic songs.


Recommended Posts

Okay, so me and a friend are probably going to be playing an acoustic gig in school in about a months time, and we need help in deciding just what to play. It has to have some kind of rock-quality, but not so much that we're ridiculed by chavs as being LOL GOFF~! It also has to sound good on - obviously - acoustic guitars, so any help would be appreciated. The list thus far:

"Yesterday" by The Beatles

"Summer of '69" by Bryan Adams

"Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd

"Good Riddance" by Green Day

"Man Who Sold The World" by David Bowie

"Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol

"Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails

"Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen

"Knockin' on Heaven's Door" by Bob Dylan

"Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M.

"Californication" by Red Hot Chili Peppers

"All The Young Dudes" by Mott The Hoople

How long is this gig? ¬_¬

Victoria's Secret by Sonata Arctica. Not only will it rock the pants off your audience, but you can guarantee 99% of them will never have heard it before :P

Now, I know what you're thinking: "Eww, power metal. We'll get laughed at". But look at it this way... you're about to go on stage and sing a Green Day song. So...

Besides, what they don't know can't hurt them :P

Or the acoustic version of 'Save Me' by Edguy, if you think your/his voice is up to it.

That would actually be a far better song to do, as it's far more rocky. If you can find the tab.


Don't do Scarlet Rose (the second one in the clip) though. You'll be taken to a whole new world of chav ridicule ¬_¬

Yes, I am going to get you to do a power metal song. :P

Edit: Thinking about it in context with the other songs you're doing, you have to do Save Me. It's recently become law.

An acoustic version of Templars of Steel? How's that going to work? ¬_¬

Wouldn't that be more like "Templars of... Limestone!"

Anyway, judging by Hammerfall's own acoustic versions, it would suck hardcore anyway :P

What about Through The Fire And Flames acoustic? ;)

Anyway, on a more serious note: Acoustic #3 by the Goo Goo Dolls?

"Swing Life Away" - Rise Against

"Third Measurement In C" - Saosin

"One" - Reuben

Also, "Behind The Screams" by CKY is a really good instrumental acoustic song.

And try to do an acoustic version of "Flying Whales" by Gojira. That would be awesome :P
