The Top 20 Acoustic Guitar Songs to Learn

My personal search for great acoustic guitar songs

When I began my search for the best/great acoustic guitar songs ever produced I began to dream of a time when I was a voracious young guitarists trying to digest everything the radio could spew. Since I started playing guitar a few decades ago, countless acoustic guitar songs have been produced that are perfect for beginners to experience the range of sound that can be produced by the acoustic guitar.

Now I am a little biased and my choices below reflect that. I went for what sounds good (to my ear and taste) played on the acoustic guitar; I also looked at songs that would be a slight (in some cases hard) challenge to beginners but songs that would add value to their repertoire; in fact the following songs if played well would add value to any guitarist’s repertoire. The following list is by no means exhaustive; it is merely my personal search throughout the internet to re-acquaint myself with what has been produced since the 1960s and really, to get back into one of my very first loves; actually the first dream I ever had as a boy of nine years old – of playing in a rock band.

First Ten Classics

1. Tears in Heaven – Eric Clapton

I thought I would start with one of the evergreen masters of acoustic/electric guitar. It has some nice touches in it that will make you sound good.

2. Drive – Incubus

Nice driving rhythm acoustic guitar song that is great to play at parties.

3. I’m Yours – Jason Mraz

When I first heard this song over in Honolulu it took me by surprise; a great song for those beach parties.

4. Californication – Red Hot Chilli Peppers

A nice classic introduction worth learning.

5. Bubbly – Colbie Caillat

OK, I have to admit this song grew on me; nice easy song for acoustic guitar.

6. Classical Gas – Mason Williams

A little harder to master but once you do you wont be able to put it down.

7. Knocking on heaven’s door – Bob Dylan

A great Dylan classic that is easy to play and would be great at parties.

8. Wanted (Dead or Alive) – Bon Jovi

A real classic, couldn’t go past it. Nice distinctive intro known widely – this will put you on the map; not too difficult to play.

9. Blackbird – The Beatles

This is not a song I would normally go for, but I think it is worth trying as it will extend your skill.

10.Come on get higher

A nice easy-going sing-along song that will wrap this first list of ten up.

Second Ten Classics

11. Every breath I take – Police/Puff daddy

A classic from the eighties

12. Stairway to Heaven – Led Zeppelin

Was the measure of a guitarist in the seventies

13. Hotel California – The Eagles

This will stretch you; worth the time it will take for you to master.

14. Sweet Home Alabama – Lynyrd Skynyrd

A widely recognised song throughout the world

15. Layla Uplugged – Clapton

This one you will enjoy, nice change in style

16. Wish you were here – Pink Floyd

Classic Pink Floyd easy to play

17. Nothing else matters – Metallica

Classic Metallica – great sound

18. More than words – Extreme

This is a great song to extend your collection of chords

19. Wonderwall – Oasis

Another distinctive classic beginning riff

20. If – Bread

This is an oldie with a lot of interesting chords and changes for you to master and put together.

Good Guitar Chords For A Love Song – How to Write a Love Song On Guitar

If you are looking for good guitar chords for a love song then I would certainly suggest using minor chords somewhere in the progression because minor chords tend to set the correct tone, however it isn’t completely necessary.

Let’s take look at 2 very popular love songs and see why. Bryan Adams has written 2 hit songs, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Everything I do’. Now if you were to ask me, I would say that both these songs would have strong minor chords, but surprisingly only one of them does, and the thing is that the song I would have put money on being mainly minor chords, ‘Everything I do’ actually only has 1 minor chord.

‘Everything I Do’ has only 4 chords – A, D, G and Em so it’s the melody of the vocals and lyric that provides the strong love song element to the piece. It’s a great song to play just on acoustic guitar because of the simplicity of the song but you can also play it on electric guitar and it will still sound quite good.

‘Heaven’ again has very a very strong vocal arrangement with emotional lyrics and is more of a rock ballad than ‘Everything I do.’ The guitar chord sequence has 2 minor chords and are as follows – Am, Dm, C, F, G. Again it’s a nice song to play just on acoustic guitar but the chorus does lend itself to power chords so if you want to play it you may need to change the arrangement slightly.

If you are trying to write your own love song then I suggest firstly using chords that have already been laid down for you and then adapting the chord sequence to fit your song. So think about a classic love song that you like or why not try using the chords the chords from either of the two songs we have looked at in this article? Try not to use too many cliches in your lyrics as you’ll find that your song is less appealing, so do your best to come up with some original lines.

I’m coming out of my cage and I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta, gotta be down because I want it all
It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I’m falling asleep and she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke and she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed and my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head, but she’s touching his

Chest now, he takes off her dress now
Let me go
I just can’t look, it’s killing me
And taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I pay, destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes, ’cause I’m Mr. Brightside

Mr. Brightside” is the first single released by American rock band the Killers.[3] It was released as the band’s debut single and is featured on their debut studio album Hot Fuss (2004). Written by band members Brandon Flowers and Dave Keuning, this was one of the first songs the Killers ever wrote.[4] Two music videos were made for the song: the first, which is in black-and-white, features the band performing in an empty room. The second, filmed for the re-release, is based on the 2001 film Moulin Rouge!.

The song was originally released on September 29, 2003 and achieved minor success. It became more popular upon its re-release in 2004, peaking at number 10 in both the United States and the United Kingdom. It is The Killers’ best-selling song in the US, where it has sold over 3 million copies.[5] In the United Kingdom it is one of the top fifteen most downloaded rock tracks ever.[6]

“Mr. Brightside” was named “Song of the Decade” by UK radio stations Absolute Radio and XFM, and in April 2010 Last.fm revealed that it was the most listened to track since the launch of the online music service, with over 12.2 million plays.[7] In October 2010, it was voted ninth in the Greatest Guitar Riffs of the 21st Century so far by Total Guitar magazine.[8] Additionally, in 2010 Rolling Stone listed “Mr. Brightside” as the forty-eighth best song of the twenty-first century

Lyrically, “Mr. Brightside” depicts the jealousy and paranoia of a man who suspects his significant other is cheating on him. Guitarist Dave Keuning composed the song’s verses before meeting Flowers. Flowers then wrote lyrics and composed the chorus after hearing Keuning’s ideas. Flowers credits the speed of the song’s creation for the fact that the song only has one verse. He says “We went in and made demos pretty quickly after that, and it took a ton of time. That’s also why there’s not a second verse… I just didn’t have any other lines and it ended up sticking.”[10] Drummer Ronnie Vannucci is credited with creating the fast-paced drum beat in the first twenty-two seconds.[11] The “calling a cab” section of the song has both a musical and textual similarity to the middle section of the song “Queen Bitch” from David Bowie’s Hunky Dory album.[12]

“Mr. Brightside” was mixed for its inclusion on Hot Fuss by Mark Needham, along with business partners Braden Merrick and Jeff Saltzman. “Mr. Brightside” was first created as a reference mix in just over half an hour “on an 8 input console, with no automation” according to Needham. Despite several subsequent remixes, the members of the Killers preferred the original one, which then made it onto the record. In recording the vocal effects, Saltzman used Echo Farm, sticking with the default vocal effects setting. Needham describes it, saying it “overdrives the vocal a bit and sets an 84 ms delay.
